When trapping or snaring coyotes or fox what do you look for in picking a specific spot or location?

Once the spot is found, do you bait the spot and place a trap near the bait or what is your preferred method?

Not bad fur on the stretcher and fish on the plate ... Keep the pics coming

I hope to join in the trapping myself next season it's been 25 years since I did it but I really miss stand it's something I would like my kids to experience of course after they complete the safety training course

I look for an area with lots of sign (tracks and scat). Once you find that try and find a pinch point, fence line, tree line, or where different crops meet (once there harvested). Coyotes will take the easiest path available. River edges are also good. The main thing is to be on location.

If your using snares i would set up a bait pile and wait till the yotes establish it and then load up the trails with snares (this tends to work better as the winter and snow progresses). For my foot holds i will dig a hole at about a 70 degree angle and put some bait down the hole. Then bed the trap back about 8-9 inches and i offset my trap to the right about 3 inches. Make sure to have a good 2-3 pounds of pan tension too. Sift dirt over the trap and use a little wisk broom and smooth it all out and make sure that the spot over the pan is the lowest part. Take the wisk broom again and blend the area in. Add a little backing of some sort behind the hole opposite the trap. Collect your coyote grin

Snares I have seen or have been shown are usually put in a trail or run way

I didn't trap to much for fox or totes back then but I would find critter sign then do a dirt hole set most of the time bait under the trap or just in front of it a bit at least that's how I did it.

When I snare, I like to run tight trails in tall grass or occasionally in wooded areas. Cattails usually are good in winter, but this year the dogs aren't in the swamps. Make sure you put a stick, blade of grass, or cattail above the snare so the fox or yote ducks into the snare! Good luck!

This is a pic of my brother, trapped long and hard but he finally got a cat(two actually). His girlfriend's dad showed him the ropes this year. Both cats came from where we deer hunt, we have been seeing a lot of tracks in the past few years and I even saw one in my stand. Both cats weighed in just under 40lbs.

Ranger, Which part of the state are you getting all the reds. I have trapped only 2 in two years. The yotes are taking over our fox around my area.

Well Here I am back in the hay days of fur, hound, and traps. Never really took much for pics when I trapped allot I guess. But here is some home control around the bird pen even though I have not been out for a few years.LOL I'll be back out,just had to much work, which is good I guess. LOL

connected with this nice 40lber tonight. was out setting my traps for the first time this spring and got this guy about TEN minutes after I set the 330. my castor lure must've smelled lovely because I caught 2 beavers while I was "watching" (setting other traps and I could hear the 330's go off). should have more tomorrow. hopefully a bigger one.

good luck

      Thought I'd post pictures of what I did. I used 1" PVC pipe and designed it so the bottom of the portable is about 7" above the bottom of the skis. I would guess the sled doesn't weigh more than 15 pounds and that might even be exaggerated a little.
    • eyeguy 54
      An example of some crappies smoked yesterday. Call me crazy but I will just eat another fish instead of the thin slice of meat 😁
    • eyeguy 54
      Few years ago I started cutting the rib totally off meat and all on panfish. Gets the tiny bone out also that I don’t like to chew up. Such a small amount of meat is wasted and mostly breading any way. 
    • leech~~
      Yeah, never implied they weren't, or suggested someone should be ashamed. I did offer a solution, I thought? 🤔
    • eyeguy 54
      Lol. 80 seconds and full of bones. I would have two done and boneless 🐟🐟🐟
    • Harmie343
      Went out to Spring Lake on Wednesday evening. Lots of trucks out on upper prior and spring. Saw a 3/4 ton coming off prior. Probably 14” of ice on spring, left my truck in the parking lot and traveled by car from the winter access. We were targeting walleyes but no cigar. Picked up some perch along the way. 
    • FishinFreak17
      Fished out by the airport  around noon til dark on Jan 20 and 21, had about 10-12' of clear ice in 9-10' FOW.  snow drifts can get about 18' deep, but no problem for a snowmobile.  Most people walked out.  Now for the bad news, lots of lookers, but only 4 bites in 9 hours of fishing.  We did get a nice 42" sturgeon on a tipup with a lite pike minnow.  that was all the excitement we had.  Any jigging motion and the fish would bolt.  Hope it improves soon, others out there had similar results.   Good luck.
    • DonkeyHodey
      Although I support a wise person who knows their limits:   phobias/Nerve damage are nothing to mess with.   Gimrius:  Catch and release is nothing to be ashamed of!  I salute you!   IceHawk:  I do the "back down over rib cage" way--It kinda works as a "one size fits all" method that works whether it's a sunny, wally, norty, bully or even "weird" fish I've been experimenting with eating of late like suckers/redhorse (They're surprisingly good!)
    • Mike89
      interesting and I say the rib cage is still in the fish.....
    • Getanet
      I personally use a Rapala electric to get the fillets off, then a regular wood-handle Rapala fillet knife to remove the rib cage and skin.  But the real reason I'm chiming in is to ask if anyone has seen this video of how to fillet a perch in 10 seconds?  Doesn't really seem to matter what knife you use with this technique - although I can't really tell if the rib cage was removed or not:
