Is that because you are trapping pressured coyotes or do you think flat sets out perform other sets on all coyotes?

Itís about time you canít use bait anyways, ants are starting to roam.

Great pics! And canít wait to hear about the drags. I have a dozen made up, just nervous about using them. Iím finally on a property I can give them a shot.

Good luck in Texas and thanks for all your help.

[quote=8117 Steve R]Is that because you are trapping pressured coyotes or do you think flat sets out perform other sets on all coyotes?[/quote. Trapped these properties for almost 10 years now. 3 times a year. Feel that = bait has been causing some problems = walk bys stall outs general = trap shyness. PLUS everyone around me uses dirtholes and pipes. Plus. This trip. I made some small and simple changes. That really made a difference

Canebrake. To be honest. I never think much about it. May sound hard to explain but. After 35 years of catching coyotes I just = think about how The coyote will approach the set. What the wind will be doing. And set trap accordingly. I generally of set to the right. Think about how = a coyote usually works a set on a 45 and think about the wind That my main thing. BUT. I would say = 9 inch back. 3 inch right. Would be close or often closes used overall pattern of how I might set trap. Maybe LOL!

I just look at the pics and assume they are on stakes , I see a long chain with springs to control shock I do believe , just always used short chains on stakes in Illinois I am only asking because I know you know your stuff . Jon

Yes. I use shock springs on both drags and stakes. States that have longer check times. Is a good reason for shock bars. Less damage.
