Good Question GB!

When it comes to sets the flat is king here. Dirt holes are a comedy at best.

The pressured coyotes here are quick to make a visual association with almost any repetitive pattern they come across. A hole set in any form is an easy connection to make and will be approached with extreme caution.

Flat sets will take 95% of my coyotes. Blind trail sets are the big equalizer for the untouchables.

The ticks aren’t too bad here TD. We see a few on the older bucks around the brisket area where they can’t reach. The javelina and coyote both have their fair share of fleas like you would expect, but the ticks don’t seem to be much of a problem.

Thank you for the answer. Awesome post and pictures!

I’ll do just that Rick.

Points have been harder to find than a grey fox this year.

It needs to start raining soon so we can have a good 2022-23 deer season.

Swamp; if you ever find yourself down around the border give us a shout.

We have a seat at the dinner table with your name on it..

Red, I try my best to make sets that fit the location or situation.

I give the coyote what he would expect to see on his travels along trails and roads he knows like the back of his paw.

Doing this causes the least amount of avoidance and creates the most foot traffic.

Here are a few more contestants.

Female – Flat Set – MB Coyote Urine – Winter Wolf

Male – Flat Set – MB Fox Urine – Winter Wolf



This road has a large green field to the right and dense brush to the left with a gradual fall in elevation.

The field and thicket creates a funnel via this super sandy sendero.

[Linked Image]


The inside bend that leads into the thick brush to the left was the main exit ramp off the road.

Notice the berm that helps keep he traffic on the inside track.

[Linked Image]


Here's a wide angle view to get a better feel for the location.

I really like the look of this coyote.

Good stuff. If I ever get to trapping coyotes I'll remember to go the flat set route. I probably would have gone dirt-hole except for your repellent observations Tejas. Thanks.

I know up here along the Canadian border flat sets out produce hole sets,James is always thinking when it comes to killing coyotes.His thinking outside of the box is like a star shape or round ball lol,very simliar to Mr. Lucero methods that he has in one of the best coyote book ever written,plus he makes some good lure along with many others.

Y’all’s coyotes would have a nervous breakdown in the South where trees, limbs, leaves, etc fall almost daily, lol. I bet ours see something new every time they come through.

WB, I was mostly referring to some of the visuals that are often used at sets.

I was talking more about things like a hole full of bait, rock walkthrough, charred piece of wood, or a bleached white cow bone that just magically appeared on the scene.

Any of the various toy sets also fit into that category.

No smell made can make a coyote forget an object just showed up there overnight.

Over time they’ll eventually check it out, but it will defiantly be avoided early on around here.

I love the sand we have here but it does have its drawbacks.

Here is what happens when we get as little as one-tenth of rain.

When this occurs it's time to rebed the entire line.

There is a pad under the pan.

That’s what happens down here when that clay dries. It literally cements them in the deck.
