I have nothing clever to put here.

I've had three baits out for coyotes since the middle of December and not one single hit. Lots of tracks in the area, but with this lack of snow and the apparent abundance of mice the coyotes just aren't interested. If I don't have at least a foot of snow on the ground, I seldom have coyotes interested in large baits.

No new tracks the last couple of days other than wolves at the one place,those hay sets do have eye appeal but they need to come back through to see if they'll work.Running out of time here shortly and good fur.

Rick do you use drags with your hay sets or stake your traps down?

Yes. I'm not traveling at all this year, just not worth it with the lack of snow and disinterested coyotes. We only have about 1" of snow right now.

dropped off fur for FHA today. Now need the coyotes to cooperate so I can pick up a couple of more. The room is empty now with no fur hanging frown.

those fox look pretty good yet by the pictures. I would hope the population would grow a little here. It has been a few years since I have seen much sign of them.
