Time for coyotes...

Postby Yaz » Dec Fri 23, 2011 12:49 pm

After the last three nights of serenades in my back yard.....literally, and causing my dogs to bark all night keeping me up, its time to keep them honest! Plus, NOBODY messes with my beauty sleep!!! :rotf I'm not going to set any traps in my new wheat field, cause I don't want them tearing it up. The ditch behind the house has a good trail that I think I can hang a couple snares in. We bring all the old cows in to the lots this week to start calving, so every hole in the fences will have a snare in it too.

I'm trying to keep it from getting worse!!! :mrgreen:

I'm not real good at snaring. But, I've done enough to catch a few. I'll try to take some pic's of my favorite locations. The good thing about snares is they work in all kind of weather. Its better in deep snow where you can see them going under fences, etc.

You asked....... :mrgreen:

Some of my favorite coyote snaring spots. I FINALLY think I got figured out the best way to hang the snares to keep them centered in the openings, and keeping the yotes from spinning them out of their way as they pass......I THINK. Like I said, I've nailed several, but still have a LOT to learn, and have a lot of misses. I can take some closeups of the actual set. Maybe somebody can tell ME if I have them hung correctly.

Trail set through a nasty thicket. I placed a few blocker sticks, and overhead branches high enough to force them to duck their head. Added a little brush to the side to keep them from side stepping it.
Image

This is my favorite set. A double corner post. A long time ago, I nailed a board about 18" off the ground between the two posts. Just enough to make a yote duck under, but high enough to keep other critters from messing up the snare.
Image

Here is one I found just today. It is also in a corner, so the good fences should funnel them right to this hole. It is actually a wash under the fence. You can't tell, but it is 3' deep by a foot wide. I intersects a huge wash that goes into a creek bottom. Good travel corridor for them. I hung one in there today. I may have to adjust the height of the snare a couple times to get it right. it was hard to visualize what they are doing here since its so deep.
Image

This was an opening in a fence. I put a cattle panel in it. Actually, to re-route the deer toward my stand. I kept it up off the ground. Now the yotes are coming under it.

It still makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck to walk out on a coyote in a snare or trap. :shock: They'll howl, growl, and bark. More of an adrenalin rush than taking a deer for me.
