I quess I should have already left for where I trap next to New Mexico line last year in West Texas. BUT I was ask to stay the full 2 months and 2 pay checks. I enjoy the work. With the sheep killing coyotes and the challanges of catching TUFF coyotes. That have seen it all BUT I have to admit = Its a little slow and boring.

Sometimes. I break ALL the rules. Coyotero on left bush. Bait stick with trap in front of it has Winter Wolf. Bush on right has NightTrain on it with 2 nd trap bedded to left of it Point is = Dont be like a sheep. And follow every one else. Do your own think. LoL!!!

Nice sets Chris, how much dirt cover over your traps? I see you don't leave a low spot over the pan.


Common sense catches alot of fur..
Pay homage to all you harvest..

I was wondering about that hole as well. So one stake for two traps or is one on a drag?
