Getting calls for urban coyotes. This one is in the neighborhood everyday. I think it is hunting and killing squirrels. Homeowner sends me pics everyday. I set a bobcat sized live trap and told her I have no faith in it.
Told her I think we have a very good chance with a Collarum. She talked to the neighbors and they agreed to purchase me one.
WI only allows cable restraints after Dec 1st. I believe I will have to wait until then to set.
Any tips on setting it up?

Aren't you worried about dogs? Even if there or stops on them they can get bang up sometimes. JMO

There are several videos on YouTube you may want to watch concerning how to use it. It should also come with a CD from WCS explaining the basics I think (it's been a bit since I've bought one). Remember that this device is a bite-pull trigger, so what you use as bait may make a difference. WCS recommends CCB from Proline Lures and I've used it with success. For the Collarum itself, I prefer the T bite trigger over the tube bite trigger. To install the T you'll need to make a notch in it at the bottom and then drill/cut holes in the side so you can run a piece of wire through it to keep it on the device. I also like to wrap the T with gauze or athletic tap to give the CCB something to "cling" to. Set location does matter with the device as you need to make sure the coyote can only approach it from the front. Also, determine how many coon you may have issues with as they can set it off without getting caught. If you have a lot of coon, I'd recommend also setting cage traps or DPs for the coon around the property to help limit the changes they will get to the Collarum. This device isn't a guarantee and many have low success with it. My last time using it on a job it took 4 days before a catch and if I remember right I had at least three if not four of them out.

I don't think you can legally set a collarum In WI. I have some and I have used them but If It were me I'd wait till Dec 1st and hang cables.

Can only be used for damage control work with a permit in NC and requires lots of paperwork.
