I snared my first coyote last night Im not doin to bad for trapping for 2 weeks
That's a biggun, adamhale.
Don't suppose you'd share some secrets with a fellow Ohioan? You can even send them by PM if you want. Around here, they are gettin a bit thick.
Sweet catch Adamhale!
Looks like a big 'un with nice fur! What did it weigh?
not sure what he weighed I would guess about 40-45 pounds
Nice catch! I don't have the talent to do that. I tend to shoot the miserable Bas*****. I have a about six (guessing from their yapping at night) within a few hundred yards of my house. I don't know if I dare call them in any closer to the house though.
If you're ever in northeastern Vermont, you could probably keep busy all winter trapping them.
A coyote like that around here would be a monster! What do you do with them? Use the fur? Please tell me you don't eat them!!
were are you from. and no i dont eat them we tan the hides
I'm in NC.
skullcrusher. all I do is set my snares on about every trail I can find and i dont touch them again unless i catch somthing in them or they get knocked over. The coyotes will eventualy use the trail
I got that, but is there a brand or type of snare you use? Do you bait them? I am in the hilly southern part of Ohio. During muzzleloader season, I came across several paths in the snow and even some markings of territory. I can hear them almost every night, but rarely see them. Just looking for pointers to help diminish the population a bit...
here is a website that will tell you every thing you need and how to make snares or you can order some from ebay or a trapping supply store. I need to get some more my self it is a little cheaper to order some but I like to say i made the snares that i catch my coyotes with. No I dont bait them. snares for yotes should be 10-12 inches off the ground with a 10 inch loop
I think you forgot the link.
Nice animal you got there!
My question is, how long does the coyote stay trapped before you kill it?
I usually don’t like this kind of hunting because I don’t think it is very challenging and I find that the pain you put the animal into is saddening.
Plus it is dangerous for hunters and their dogs who might be passing by the area where the traps are set :S
it just takes a minute or so and there should not be any other hunters or dogs on the property if there is they would be trespasing!!
nice big yote
WoW that thing looks like a malamute dog it sure is a big sucks
I am going to echo the posts "That is a big Coyote."
