I like the flat rock set.. I have seen that occur several times naturally. Good idea.



As far as anchoring in rock, I carry a hammer drill to auger the dirt holes. This year I used a tapcon bit and anchored a trap straight to rock. Unfortunately didn't get to see it catch a coyote, but I have no doubt it would hold.


once you go trap, you never come back

* I once knew a man who took a hand auger and drilled a one inch hole , into a wooden fence post, two foot off the ground.
Into this hole, he inserted a single sardine ( in oil ) and blended a trap back where the coyote would stand , when it investigated the hole.
He did this at every gate opening he came to.

The trap was on a drag

So how far back did he place the trap at this set? 15? 18? Offset or straight back?

This is my first year trapping. I have never observed or even talked to another trapper. Learned what little I know from youtube. Im just trapping to control predators to help my fawns and turkey poults survive. My property is a couple of hours where From where I live. I go up a couple of times a month for 4-5 days. I have been making 100% dirt hole sets. I set and bait the traps when I get there, trip them when I leave but leave the traps in place. I have traps set along a road in a cutover where roads intersect or firelanes intersect with the road. Others are set along a logging road going from hardwoods into a pine plantation . A fire lane runs the edge of the pines. Another set is where logging roads intersect at the edge of a planted food plot. A couple of questions.
1. Ive caught 3 yotes and a bobcat in the cutover. 1 at the foodplot. 1 at the pine/hardwood plus I lost 2 traps there before I learned to set Berkshire anchors properly and quick links need to be more than finger tight. How many dry trips before I move the sets?
2. You talk about 2-3 traps at a location. I have 4 traps on the road in the cutover about 70 to 100 yards apart. Should I be setting multiple traps at each set or is the road considered s location?
3. Something has been pulling the sheeps wool out of the dirt hole without tripping the trap. Is it a cat? Fox? What are strategies to catch the critter?
4. Does the rock have to be white for the rock set with scat?

I appreciate any advice. I think Im enjoying the trapping as much as the deer hunting.
