Those coyotes are close to a den right now. Try and listen if they’ll make any noise but they’ll likely be quiet about now. If they’re denned up, they’ll be traveling to water and food.

Just come on out here this season and we’ll get you straight. We probably have the same type of country.

I asked that very same question years ago to one of my mentors. " set more traps per location and be varied with set types and attractors". He was spot on.

^^^^^ it’s all about numbers ! ^^^^^^ number of traps and number of coyotes. The more coyotes you have the more traps you need set , and variety in sets is a must .

You have to consider populations of nontargets also.

gbus I eliminate most non targets with a heavy trap pan ( 4# ) I’ve only caught 2 fox in the last 20 years . I still for the life of me can’t figure out how it is a 2# skunk can trip a 4# pan but it seems to happen almost once a year. I will have the occasional coon , but it’s usually a big boar over 20# . I don’t even remember the last time I caught an opossum. I should mention most of my line is wide open farm country.

A lot of factors go into becoming a better trapper. Quality of your bait or lure, ability to pick locations, quality of sets you make, type of sets you make how much time you spend at the set making it and checking it and understanding how your target animal ticks. Sometimes if you've made some errors and the resident coyotes are on to you it can definitely get more difficult in that particular area. Experience is the best teacher.

A lot time it's covering more ground only so many , then there is how long you been trapping takes awhile,like all things it takes training .

Maybe I didn't understand the question, but . . .

Setting more traps and covering more ground will increase your numbers

Now, if you are referring to , just increasing them on a single property, then it's just set more traps and set them closer together !

It never seems to amaze me how many trappers are impressed with another's triples, quadruples (and higher), only to continue to only set two traps per location.

Buy more traps, set more traps closer together , catch the litter all at once !

Q) What's the best animal attractant ?
A) An animal of the same species !

Master location and gang set with the combo of sets and attractants that match that location. As LT points out a live animal in one set of the same species is the best draw possible but at times other species will too.

Six sets in a small area, two do all the catching.
Why has always been a head scratcher for me.

My numbers drastically increased when I began to really emphasis on location. No matter what I'm trapping. The use of trail sets as well
