I reset the catch circle with a Buried Bait Set or a Hay Set (scattered bait) AFTER I rake the outline so as not so obvious to the next customer. ..................................... the mike

Added a "paw set" on the west side (top in picture) this evening
Buried paw with a squirt of urine only

Was going to put in a secound one back south in the 2 track but did not have my other trap on the 4 wheeler like I thought so I will make a couple more sets after lunch tomorrow when I get off work

Had another one nosing around last night but did not work the set (only 1 pic)

You need a recording of a coyote in distress. That'll bring em back.

Or catch another coyote...

Guess this bunch is not trap circle shy
Traps at upper edge and right edge of catch circle, pulled trap in center because it was a muddy mess the other day after catching second coyote in same trap.

[Linked Image]

Wind out of the north which is right in picture
Trap there was bedded right outside edge, used piece of chewed wood for backing between catch circle and trap, dropping on one side of trap and chewed up T bone on other side (guarding levers). Couple drops of Jameson's Matrix marking scent and a little urine.
Coyote had to step over backing to get in trap from approach.

Trap on top side of catch circle with paw and urine
Will be around lunch before I get out to take care of coyote, maybe some friends will show up between now and then and get caught as well

Good news is the rain is about out of SW Georgia so Alabama should be drying. Iíll have about 10hrs or so of no rain before tomorrow mornings check. Not sure about rain totals yet, Iíll look when I get to the shop in the morning. Got a feeling weíll be using the winch on the Jeep and few times tomorrow unless we take a boat to quail hunt.

Great trap & camera work! The trail cameras reveal allot of useful info and it's really cool to see the critters you are after.

Not that got caught on camera

Looked like a coyote sized print just off of pan at paw set but no catch yet.

Something set camera off twice last night but no coyote in image. 33 and a good frost here this morning.

Davexx1 the ones I have on sets that are set to take video for 20 sec are really informative

I like following along with specific setups and see the outcome. The camera is a great bonus. I run a bunch of cameras and my experience it's not uncommon for them to miss some animals. Some cameras are a lot worse than others. I ran 4 reveals this year for deer they seemed pretty good on deer put haven't used them specifically on coyotes. That's were you really can see if they are missing to much. But I've also seen deer walk by cameras that when you check later that deer isn't on there.
Thanks for the updates. What reveal are u using? Is it the true no glow models or is it the model that emits a slight red glow? Mine emits the red glow but still doesn't seem to draw much attention from the incidental coyotes or cats that have wondered by.

The difference in reactions by the ones not trapped makes me wonder if it matters which coyote is in the trap. Maybe the alpha male of beta female causes one type of reaction where one farther down the list causes another.

I am with Hern, you have excellent pictures- if you figure out what they are telling you, you will become a better trapper.

Well the "paw" (I made a set with a coyote paw on edge of catch circle) must have needed to age because it took 13 days but it did produce

Makes 5 from same spot since Jan 1st

Hope I catch 5 more
