I may have gone off neck deep in trapping. I am new to it, but I am having a blast. I decided to make my own coyote bait. The one coyote that I have caught, I caught on a big chunk of deer meat. It took 2 weeks for the coyote to find it, since the meat was fresh.

My son killed a doe the last weekend of the season, and every piece that didn't go in our freezer, except it's hooves and head went into the bait cooler. I also got ahold of some free chicken breast chunks about 3 weeks ago. They've been in the bait cooler too.

I've been looking for a cheap chest freezer to keep the bait in and I found one today that runs like a champ for $75.

I can surely say that the chunks of meat I've been letting get to the proper level of "taint" in the old plastic cooler would knock a buzzard off a gut pile. I laid individual chunks on some plastic in the old freezer this evening and will bag them up tomorrow.

I think something may be wrong with me. I am excited about having rotten meat in a freezer to catch a stinking coyote with.

Bobcat meat looks like it would be good eating, but I will never try any. I'll save it for the yotes....

I put the deer meat in the freezer yesterday on a piece of plastic so it would freeze seperately and I could them bag it up and get pieces out as needed.

Today, I planned to take the 3 week old raw chicken out of the bag it was in and place it on the plastic to individually freeze. I prepared myself by putting a big glob of Vicks vapor rub under each nostril. I still gagged. I'm about to puke just thinking about it. I think it smells worse than the Predator Bait plus that I bought.

I have no doubt that a baseball to softball sized chunk of this rotten meat will throw out much more of a scent trail than a glob of the store bought stuff.

I found 3 large fresh canine dug holes in my soybean patch Tuesday afternoon. I will be setting up on those Saturday. All 3 holes were in a spot about the size of my truck hood. I don't know what the coyote/dog was after but I figure it will be back.

Probably so. They seem to dig them out pretty often. These holes were very deep, so I'm not sure.

A buddy of mine that use to do some trapping had a 55 ga drum that he had about half full of fish and whole chickens. He would cap it off to keep the maggots out and let it rot. Man that stuff was deadly on the fox and yotes. It would also cause you to see last weeks breakfast so I don't know why he worried about the maggots.

Sounds like some gator bait.

When I was a tyke, my father knew an older man who ran slat boxes for catfish on Wilson Lake.

The guy lived near Fisherman's Resort in Town Creek and had 55-gallon drums of his cheese-fish "dip" bait. He'd seal the drums, put them under an open tin-roofed shed and let them sit for about a year, while using last year's bait.

Guy caught a ton of fish. When the wind was right you could get a whiff of fish-cheese.

I can't imagine rotted fish and chickens in a barrel in Alabama's summer heat. Jeepers.

Clem, when I was young I opened a barrel of that stuff on a dare. The only thing that kept me from falling in when I got a whiff of it was the fact that I was too short laughup
