I wear gloves only because my hands get dirty, dried, and cracked if I dont wear gloves.
Same here. I bait, squirt pee, and set traps with the same gloves.

If you trap wearing nothing but glove you probably aren't going to fit in here in Ks very well.....

How many are only using one set, no lure, only 2 baits and just urine you positively know is pure coyote pee? I road with a guy that makes huge daily catches on coyotes and he does the same thing. The difference I see with these guys is they dont mess around with different sets and attractants, they find what works the best and roll with it. Then (and I think this is the biggest thing) they go to great lengths and distances to trap the BEST spots. The time and distance they put into getting permission on great spots makes a big difference. I wonder how many trappers if asked why they trap were they do, their answer would be, because that's were we have permission to?


I haven't used anything but dirtholes with one bait and quality urine for the last four years. I paid attention when he would talk on other forums. Never looked back.. He's not selling lure and it shows. Definitely don't need four or five attractants at the set in my opinion.

Hope you fare better than the child that asked him for mink trapping advice and was told he wasn't smart enough to trap mink and should stick to muskrats.

Did not strike me as the type watching the videos he has been in, but nothing about people surprises me anymore
And I would hope that ANY child that showed an interest in trapping would be treated extra special by an older trapper. Applies to any other outdoor activities

One thing he stressed was to make the set right where they are walking. Don't try to pull them a few yards .... or even a few feet. They can't miss the set because its basically in they're path.
A little pee and bait goes a long way at that point. The lure is really not very beneficial when they practically trip over the set.

The key to big numbers trapping, if that's a trappers goal, is a system of efficiency from the time you go to bed till the time yo go to bed again.
Bob is a powerhouse of knowledge in his system and how to reel coyotes in 5 Death Rays at a time.
He is high energy for sure and it's fun to chat with him at conventions and such.

As Bryce said, Robert has been very generous with his time and talent for many years to the trapping trade.

At the end of it all, if you want to increase numbers of pelts, you need to increase efficiency in you and all you do to get to the goal.
And then spend the necessary time to hone that.

That's what the top 1% have always done.

Blessings,
Mark

The reasoning is more than that if you talk to Robert about it.

Wade I knew you had went to the DH, bait, urine system. I'm curious how many who have been following Robert and admiring his catches can bring themselves to follow his system. More of a question to see who is confident enough to put into action what they see Robert doing...??? Who can walk the walk so to speak

This concept^^^ is what I've stressed for many years. It's how I trap any critter. You'll still get some coyotes that dont want to cooperate and will walk around the set anyway, but most of em will "take the bait."

Hi YS, I'll likely never get to talk to him, just referencing what he said in the video. Can you elaborate a bit ? Thanks.

If one was to ever experience the populations and sign he encounters, (video) one might just be able to walk in a similar fashion.
Thanks

Sometimes the trapping goal for predators isn't catching as many as you can but rather catching the one(s) doing the damage.
Plan B can look very different from Plan A in those situations.

Fur trapping is running and gunning and doing it over and over.
Predator control has more chin rubbing than fur trapping.

You bump a coyote on a fur line, head down the road.
You bump thee coyote you need to catch on a predator contract and you reach for a tissue to cry a bit.

I prefer fur trapping.
But predator contracts pay the bills.

Blessings,
Mark

You dont have to be too smart to catch mink,or any other animal.I have known,and still know a few that cant read or write and pile up tons of fur.
Like anything else with trapping you just need to be a hard worker,stay motivated and get to it,to catch more than a few.
Smarts is not the main requirement as far as catching goes..
