Thanks for posting pics of the sets in Rocky ground. I deal with a lot of gravel roads that have sign on them but can be difficult to put in a set.

Are you just using the cow rib to blend or are you sifting some over the pattern too? Anyhow, it's a nice, blended set.

May have asked before, but why bury the drag? Thought the whole purpose of the drag was not to have to dig. If I can dig Iíll put in an earth anchor.

OK Wannabe. Land manager ask or told us = Family wants to see 0 coyotes bouncing on roads ! So everything is drags. I have Blue Lacey dog with me now. So no worries on = finding the animal quickly. Plus. Last trapper. Was well know. He basically retired. I will say this = HE DID A GREAT job clean up coyotes!!!! So time ? Its not a factor so why not bury???? The = Hook to the tree or bush ? Well thats not for me . Educated coyotes. So we ONLY make clean Flat Sets. And drags ? Long term ? Once you get over = price shock of new? The they will last forever. Its like a = investment. No more cable stakes or bullet stakes. Just bury them drags and 8 or 10 ft chain!!! LoL!

Ever thought to use a cordless leaf blower just before leaving the set?

Just an Alaskan, lots of time for overthinkingÖ Not much time in the day or tide to practice.

I overthink things, at times, but tend to slash and cut down to much simpler.
Nice looking country. I like the hills and the greenery.

The Spanish help here is good!!! They will kill a coyote for you = take it out of traps. AND bring you trap with drag on it!! They will also hand bobcats and coyotes on fences foe you.

Wanna Be Their have been a few times. That I have = hooked to tree or just throw drag and chain in bushes. BUT I dont like doing that. And ONLY as a last resort. I have all the time in thw world here. I can work 2 BIG ranches from now on. AND. Have picked up 1 more small 25000 acre place just this. Week. So for me to NOT bury drag??? Just seams unprofessional! I want ALL the land me and my partner can handle. I HOPE with in a year. We are having to = interview and hire new = young trappers to help us run lines

New little place. 25000 acres up road. Still working on price. Agreed once. They want it done. BUT deer hunters ??? They get in the way. Gum up the works. So price of snaring and trapping must increase

Doing deprivation work. Not fur. No restrictions No license needed. Not keeping fur EVER. I just do deprivation work. Kill whatever is needed for ranchers. Texas is year round on cats. LOTS of = Predator Calling Contests in West Texas ! VERY few bobcats left here

Yep! They = stretch coyotes and hogs out the same way. Work well together. OFTEN used or call on to be used by USDA or private county programs to help with = Flying Helocopters on coyotes. Educated coyotes often = hole up. Very hard to kill when = government has over flown helicopters. Then the dogs are sent into flush out coyotes

Ha! I've done that a few times when setting traps in open ground without much for them to hang up on, added an extra length of chain to give them 20+ feet.

I use to always dread the weekends when trapping. Hunters always messing with sets and my caught game like clockwork. Not deer hunters mostly bird hunters.

Those boots will make your legs sweat Chris but sure are handy with those rattlers when you get off the roads. Those boots don't look broke in yet. No fang marks or venom dribble stains on them. smile

swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

So let me understand this
Deer hunters laid claim to your t-posts?
Locked you (employee) out of a gate?

If I was land owner they would be coming to get their crap and I would be leasing to new bunch with better sense.
People are lined up to pay ridiculous money for a deer lease these days, no need to deal with a bunch of idiots

They are just city folks. Towneys. They NOW understand. How it will be. They have a whole pile of T post brought in. Feed me a ribeye last nite. We talked. I was = asured = no more problems. Has all 3 gate combos now. My guess. Landowner schooled them on whats what

Or, turns her into an absolute ghost and forces her to an easy food source because you removed her grocery getters.

Iím sorry, but this goes against ALL denning common procedure.

I have been killing coyotes for 35 years. Killed males first and killed females first. If you're only job is to kill coyotes, it doesn't matter which one you kill first. Both should be dead in 48 hours and then pups are done for. Do it efficiently, doesn't matter who dies first as long as all are gone.

Boone you may be correct. I will not lie. THIS will be my first experience with denning. I have NEVER got to do it in Alabama But kill male first. Then babysitter. Then female with pups. Was best order I was told. IF you kill HER first. What stops = the Baby Sitter from taking pups and moving ?

Never denned coyotes but I do know if I get within a quarter mile of a den with pups checking cows, even if I don't see a coyote, they will be gone the next day it seem around here. I've also seen what appeared to be at least 2 baby sitters maybe 3 with a denned pair once.

Don't complain; A)they aren't your sheep B)its a lot more fun to catch something than it is to check empty traps. wink

I always liked that canned ham. Brings back memories of hunting with an old guy when I was younger. He would always through a bucket of taters and couple cartons of eggs in the truck when he would leave to go hunting. We used to go for four or five days at a time and just sleep in the trucks when we got tired. For breakfast we would fire up a little camp stove on the tailgate, boil coffee and scramble some eggs, spam and fried taters. For lunch we'd have fried egg and spam sandwiches, and often times for dinner the same, with fried potatoes again.

Just playing the devils advocate but maybe he moved them there to take advantage of the available forage. His job is to turn as much forage into meat as he can and your job is to keep the sheep safe from coyotes. He hired you so he can do his job better. Besides you pride yourself on your hard work. If there's grazing available a rancher or sheep guy wants to use it.

Yes Sir. He HAS a better place 7700 acre pasture that has water and better grass. And even though empty it buts up next to other sheep. So We keep it snared. Like a buffer space To be honest. EVEN his own brother is saying = WHY did he put them their??? We really think it was the = sons choice. And his father wants to teach him a lesson ? But who knows???? Ifs rocky less grass less water worst fences BUT closer to the son? Maybe thats it ??

Yeah hard to say without being in his shoes. Maybe he's saving better place for later use and possibly because of moisture or point of lambing cycle he feels this is best time to utilize this area...??? I know the amount of forage is usually the limiting factor for most ranchers and especially so in dryer climates. Getting sheep killed to teach a son a lesson is hard on the pocket book. Maybe he's that confident in your skills. Maybe he thinks having you there full time will open up more land for use and he's planning on building an empire now. grin

Swamp Wolf I am NOT look forward to having to turn a black bear loose ! Its will happen sooner or latter. One of my past employers A rancher from New Mexico/Texas line. Is getting me a lasso ready. I need to work on = being able to = lasso aniamals ! I had to release a calf the other day. IF it had been bigger?? I would have been in trouble. SO i need to learn to rope alittle bit.

I must admit. Getting used to = West Texas ways Is not always easy for me! I am used to = running wide open. It dont work like that here. Have caught coyotes that took 30 -44 days to get in trap while setting on fresh sign. On hundreds of thousands of acres = its a long term or life time project here. Today. I work from 7 am till 2 pm. Set 3 traps. Ran bout 60 traps over 60000 acres or so. THEN at lunch. Took a nap. Now bout 5 pm will go to a spot. And set bout 3 more traps on other side of ranch. Going from = numbers. To = predator control man has been a adjustment here for me NO MORE nosebleeds. Knees dont hurt before rainstorms and back feels 100% better !!!! Really enjoying West Texas !

ST I'll send you some water if you're missing it. Have some beaver traps across the pasture at the edge of the woodline but can't get to them. Lot of deep water between me and them. I'm standing on the high ground.
