LDW, thatís interesting. Iíd be curious if being located in the southeast would follow that trend or not. Iím starting to test out some lures/baits via trail cam so Iíll pay close attention. Thanks for the input!

A lot of cameras can be detected by coyotes and therefore have an influence on how they react to a lure or bait in front of a camera. Just a friendly bit of advice. If this is your first experience testing in front of a camera your testing could be inaccurate if your camera influences the coyotes reaction. I always get worried when someone tells me they are going to test something I sent them in front of a camera if they have no experience before with this. Took 5 different brands before I found one that worked reasonably well for this purpose. Some cameras sensing/detection system seems more towards deer size animals and will miss some coyotes also.
But good on you for doing so testing to get good answers from your target animals.

Yes sir, what brand/model did you settle on? I have 4-5 different kinds and planned on putting them on different places to get a better sample size. I did put two foam paint brushes with different baits/food based lures behind the house last night with a camera over it. I came out this morning and one was chewed in half. Of course, the camera caught none of it! Maybe tonight theyíll come back

I was using the Browning Dark Ops models. They don't spook coyotes but their detection system was really bad in wind blown grass or weeds(taking too many pics of nothing) but would miss some coyotes that worked the set. Even had one in a trap within 50 foot of camera that never trigger camera. Camera triggered fine when I walked up to dispatch it. Seldom recommend a little more expensive model of Browning that he was using, He likes the Browning Special Ops Advantage model BTC-8A. I had a hard time find them so I went with the newer model Special Ops Edge BTC-8E. Just started using them so jury is still out on them for me.

I still rely heavily on test holes for testing lures and baits. If a coyote really likes something they will dig for it. Coons or skunks won't dig like a coyote and with a little skill you can tell a difference.

I carry Hiawatha Valley bait, GH-II, Yodel dog, and Canine Force. Also have coyote urine. I use some dirt hole sets but I like flat sets best.

Iím just curious what goes into your lure choice at any given set and what kinds of lure you prefer at different kinds of sets.



Basic lure usage is food lure in dirt holes, gland lure at post sets, curiosity lure at flat sets. Of course any combination of these can work anytime. crazy

No visitors since whatever tore up my paint brush the first night. I have put it on the back burner since I set some traps on the field next to my house and didnt want to attract them to my yard versus those sets. As soon as I get the time I am going to put one of my browning cameras up at my moms house since I dont trap there. You may have answered this before, but when you test, do you put everything down a dirt hole or do you make all kinds of mock sets?

I never make mock sets when testing lures or baits. Iím testing the coyoteís degree of attraction to a scent, I donít want anything visual at the scent test site that could be a distraction and give a false determination of the scentís effectiveness or lack thereof!! A 1Ē hole drilled straight down 8Ē deep with the scent at the bottom and nothing more.

X2 I want to see how hard they will work to try and get it. I did make 15 mock sets with a nonfunctioning trap to test their reactions to a real set.
