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!!

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
