Just wanted to hear some opinions. Whats the longest youve left a canine set out and connected? All things being equal,(terrain,food source,time of year,population), when do you pull and move on?

I have had at least one K-9 set out from the 2nd week of December that did not connect until February 26th. Actually, they were cat traps and I had a double on yotes at that location, that day. For yotes, I would not leave sets more than a couple weeks unless I had plenty of traps and they are convenient to check or for ADC.

Son caught one second to the last day of season on a set that had been in for two months last year. And he is stubborn about not rebaiting or re-luring his sets


Every day is a gift from GOD, don't waste it!!

If they have plenty of food, give them something interesting to smell

3-4 months without re-luring.

I have a couple places near the house that I have caught coyotes after the set was their for a month but when running a k9 line and gas being 3 dollars a gallon,2 weeks is about it unless I`m catching a lot.The best advice I can give you is if your going to put sets out in freezing conditions of Pa for coyotes,make wax dirt in the summer.The less you mess with a set once you make a set,the better.

I typically set three and sometimes four traps per location, Iíve had traps or at least a trap that never connected in a given year.

I donít think that is really what you are asking so I will give you a typical scenario. It is normally 7 to 10 days between coyote visits in my area. I have had locations go dry two or even three weeks but that is rare ! This typically happens late in the year after I have caught a number of coyote .

7-10 days max if the weather cooperates and stays good. Pull and move after that length of time. A trap that's a mile from the house is a mile too far if it's not producing...

Set this trap in the last half of December, this coyote showed up the 8th of March. I know that I probably relured a couple of times. Never seen so many cockle burs on one. This was on a friend's ranch and he was about to start calving. I have caught quite a few after a month or two.
