I double footed four of them last year, all in wolf traps. My theory is that the pan tension was high enough on those traps that the coyotes weren't setting them off unless they got two feet on the pan. One of them was be one front and one hind foot. That was a first! And it didnt fight too hard. Lol.
Can't recall ever double footing one in anything but a wolf trap.

That has to be the rarest of coyote catches! Double fore/hind foot!
