Hi all - I'm new too trapping and have just got some new Duke coil spring traps which i would like to try this autumn. We have a good variety of animals to trap in our backyard Bobcat,coyote,Raccoon,Fisher, Opossum and skunk.
I would appreciate a couple of pointers on which baits/lures work best for Bobcats and Coyote as we have most trouble with these two predators.
welcome johnsee, lots of info here to help ya out. Treeman dont be wishin for some coyotes or I might just ship you a crate full lol
LOLZ! I can trap them up where I am originally from, but they would have a hard time(even for coyotes) here. Too many gun slingin boys on these farms. I took up trapping cuz after hunting down them reds for awhile, I quickly learned that with so many predator hunters, and nobody trapping here I was in the wrong biz! However I alsp learned that them gun boys & girls don't get nearly half of 'em. Some of the ones I catch have BB's in 'em. They wont come to calling by mid november. I used to have to take out the .223, or .204 and sit an hour or so before dark, and at daybreak and take cracks at 'em at 300+ yards. It was fun, but i like trapping more now! Shot a red at 479 yards once. I will take a half a crate of 'em then! -T-
