Probably around 15 days or until things go cold. If I’m still seeing yote activity then I may trap a little longer if it doesn’t rain a bunch. I really don’t have enough traps to put them out like I’d like to on this property. I’ve got 12 out but there’s several more good locations that need traps set out on them. I also don’t have any double sets at any locations like I should have. I’d say I could set out another 12 traps pretty easy on this property.
Identify your main travel routes and you can catch most every every coyote that comes through there with a half dozen well placed sets. Less is more when trapping coyotes, it doesn't take much to make them skittish.

Wouldn’t that be all the more reason to take them out quickly…..Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap!....in the shortest time period possible? I’ve got one major travel route that is where two really long lanes cross each other to make a + shape. One leg is a small powerline that extends for a long ways across the landscape. I’m setup in the middle of the +. Wouldn’t I want to have 2-3 traps set at that location? I heard one trapper say that if it’s a great spot to have one trap then it’s a great spot for two…..you can’t catch doubles with one trap. The lake is another major landscape feature that’s funneling animals. I could use up 6 traps between just those two locations? No? That still leaves several other good spots for sets. The whole west line in a mile of habitat break in a straight line……there’s another neighboring lake damn funneling animals, etc…….I’m just asking, I like to hear everyone’s opinions.

Good catch! That's another thing I don't like about those little traps. The coyotes foot is still touching the pan and you've barely got a full pad catch on her.

I’m getting pretty comfortable with setting these traps now. So far so good with them. I tried the larger MB-650’s but ended up liking the smaller trap better. I’ll have to give those K-9’s a try one day. One of biggest deciding factors for me was that I just got what the local trapping store below Montgomery carried. I lik being able to just drive down there when I want to and pick up more or whatever I may need.

I'm not sure what everyone else is using but below is a tool I’ve found to be really handy. I sift some dirt over my set and then use the foam brush to clean my pan off and move the dirt around where I need it. I use the handle end to pack the dirt inside my jaws around the pan. I also use the brush end to smooth things out and put a little bit of a finishing touch on things when I’m just about done.

When I got started, it didn't take me long to figure out I was catching 90% of my coyotes in 10% of my sets. I realized it was specific location types that produced the best. I will use a few double sets in key locations and move on. I've tried it both ways and this approach has proven time and time again to produce more coyotes with much less work. Obviously, there are many ways to set up a coyote line, this is just what produces best for me. I'm enjoying your posts and good luck.

Day 12…..Final tally: 13 coons, 3 possums, 6 yotes

No catches today. I went ahead and made the call to pull all my traps early. The forecast looks like we’re about to get a good amount of rain from now until about Wed. I suspect things are about to start dwindling down anyways and it would just be a pain to try to do anything during multiple days of rain. I’ve got another landowner close by that wants to do some trapping as well. I’m probably gonna move to that property after the rain is over and come back to this one later on to try and see if I can snag a few more yotes. I believe there’s still more moving through this property to be caught. Overall, I'm pleased with how this trapping project went. beers

You had a good run! Especially good considering you're just getting started and learning!

Make sure you get those scales you mentioned in the color variation thread. You're gonna be real surprised at your coyote weights once you start hanging them up.

Smart move pulling them ahead of this weather. It isn't fun playing in mud trying to remake sets.

It takes a big coyote to weigh 35 pounds. I would say most females I catch are in the 25-28 pound range.
