Caught a big male this morning and he wasn't none to happy about it, I've caught several coyotes in the past 5 years but this was the meanest acting one I've dealt with [Linked Image]

Yes it looks like a mess, great pictures keep them coming. RM are most of your sets in wooded areas, logging trails, wooded trails?

Yea backroadarcher I set alot of mine in old logging roads and on the edge of the timber. We don't have alot open areas except for Christmas tree farms and some pasture fields, but I set the fields when available. We just have alot more timber than fields. When I set the timber areas I usually put my sets right off the game trails. But the old logging roads probably produce better for me than anything. The coyote this morning was in a Christmas tree farm where two shrubbery roads met on top of a high knob. I put a dirthole in yesterday at the intersection and connected first night. I set a new area today that was all timber and jyst put my sets next to we'll used deer trails

Thanks RM, I have a lot of similar areas here plus a lot of crop land. I just figure why not make the best of both worlds. I haven't had a lot of success in the timber, some but not as much as I would like.

I always look for level ground here, easy to find.
What's the secret to catching them on a slope like that?
Good looking coyote, I don't see any rub marks.

3togo I usually try to set the old logging roads on the steep properties but this spot a friend of mine owns and there wasn't a level spot on it so I put a dirthole in a made it like a step down, so I dug it out enough to make it semi level and put my trap only a couple inches from the hole. I have caught several on slopes but I was putting my trap 7-8" back like a normal set and was ending up with back foot catches so I started putting my trap really close to the hole on these sets on the slopes and it seemed to help

Got two new farms setup today and they both looked great and had plenty of sign so I should have some success in the next few days. They had some spectacular views too [Linked Image]
