1st Coyote trapped!

16 posts in this topic

Nabbed my first coyote in a trap yesterday. 30 lb male. I used clear plastic wrap under the trap to prevent freezing to the snow, then a standard screen on top the trigger. I just covered with snow and secured to the tree scent post with a couple of 2 inch staples. I had to reset every couple of days to prevent freeze up of the jaws, but it worked. The second coyote to investigate the post got nailed. The 1st dug up part of one trap, and stayed away from that side of the tree.

[Note from admin: one of the pictures did no fall within our picture guidelines Thank You]

Very Nice JK, good job, you can be proud of that one. Not everyone can say they caught a coyote at the end of january, in a trap. Nice Job.

Chalked up another one Saturday morning. Same set. Better not try making a living at this rate! 2 weeks to catch the 1st one, and then 3 weeks before the 2nd!

Hey guys lets try to keep the pics tasteful!! I mean who wants to see that?! It turns my stomach, honestly. It totally ruins a good picture of a beautifully trapped coyote. Why would someone where a green bay packers coat? Gross!!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
