I generally split the underside all the way down. Figure that would get the odor out there. I was thinking that otherwise they might just think it was laying down sleeping, lol. Thought the smell of blood and guts might entice something. Plus the fact I drug it a good 400 yards down a road to a more open area would leave a scent trail for anything that crossed its path.
Coyotes are coyotes, until they aren’t.

This coyote spent a lot more time on the ground working the bait than she did standing up in front of it.

You might keep this in mind if you're using a small exposed bait.

You know there are new coyotes on the scene when you see this.

The bait is finally starting to roll a little bit.

Six coyotes at 8:30 am is a good start for not much soak time.

"You know there are new coyotes on the scene when you see this."
Tej would you comment just a little more about this.
Again, good stuff, thanks.

Looking back to see... ?

WB, when there are new coyotes on the scene I see a lot of conflict.

The coyote is bowed up showing his teeth and standing his ground ready to defend the bait.

This station only had two of three visitors at one time in the last few days. That number jumped to six overnight.

There will be a good deal of fighting around the bait in the coming days as coyote numbers increase.

I now get what you are saying.

On large kills like that I traditionally did better on the approaches.
Many times further back than some may believe.
I theorize they were less on edge, and, what you just showed.
A continued dead cattle dump comes to mind.
And, a location where differing groups all mark. <- you, er no, I can smell
them but not catch em there.

This may be a good time for the poster that coined the phrase,
stall out location.

The survival instinct of a coyote is second to none.

Here is a new arrival with a little hitch in her get along.

I've noticed that coyotes with an injury will often avoid others because they're not at full power.

This girl did a lot of looking over her shoulder while on the bait.

She stocks up on groceries while the pantry is full and there are no other rivals around.

This particular gal was seen one time late last season while in the deer stand.

I'll have to dig deep into the magic bag of tricks to reel this one in.

I’d imagine that fact that it wasn’t there last time, and a pole through the bait, and the bait on a chain or rope would make them nervous, lol.

WB, I think that part of it could be the natural posture of slinking in to steal away with the meat.

Both pieces of carne are secured to a chain and post that has been there for years.

On this day they didn’t do that with the big bait they couldn’t run off with. The previous photo of the pair of coyotes standing at the station together did the same thing.

As mentioned earlier, the familiar but new attractant could certainly be part of the cause. The same could apply to any new set or presentation.

The same coyote from the above photo hit the small bait over and over again until he finally snagged the prize.

I believe this illustrates why it would be much more difficult to pinpoint trap placement on a set with a grab and die or any other toy-type set placed on the surface. Even when staked down or on a short tether you will get basically the same response.

The coyote's snatch and run approach when working a tied down food attractant is a lot different from the milling around at a flat set, or digging at a dirt hole.

A traditional downwind trap set would have missed this coyote on every approach he made.

Every run he took was from the upwind side of the bait on the same line of travel.

It sure is MC!

We could use some cooler temps here.

We've been real busy in the last few weeks.

Just finished up planting winter wheat yesterday.

Hopefully the coyotes will be rolling by the end of November.

I need to get caught up on posting some photos.

The coyotes here will usually test a fresh bait over and over to see if they can snag the snack.

[Linked Image]

They wise up after multiple pulls and go to eating what they can’t run off with.

[Linked Image]

Some are persistent enough to finally break the wire holding the prize.

Tejas I use deer for bait. Every time I put a fresh one out the local deer visit the carcass for about 2 nights. Get bucks during the rut but usually does. This bait has had 11 deer on it in two nights.
Do you see anything like this with hogs? This one is at 10 yards.
