Smile Trapping Coyotes

There's a lot of good talk about the use of snares which I will have to get more knowledge of setting better, but can any one tell me if they know someone or use the J.C Conners Heavy Duty T-Bar Shock Spring on their trap chains . I am thinking of purchasing some instead of a smaller type spring . Wondering how they work . Thanks

I have used snares in the past. I usually used them around bait. Still born lambs work well but you have to have a method of keeping them in place. I found that if you set up around burnt straw bales and then had one or two unburnt ones there that worked great for foxes. Once the foxes were around the occasional coyote would venture in. All of this was in southern Alberta. Since moving to Saskatchewan I have not resumed my trapping activities so things may have changed.

As I found out trying to buy raw fox, you need a fur buyers license for raw fur. You cannot advertise raw fur for sale and when I have given yotes to the hutterites in the past, they have "gifted" a pair of gloves etc. Can't buy without a license.

You need to find someone with a fur buyer's license. I have one and buy whole dogs but I'm in Morinville. I'm pretty sure that there's a guy buying whole dogs in Bonnyville but I don't know his name. Don't expect to get a lot of money for a shot dog, maybe enough to pay for your ammo and gas. Good luck.

Paul, pick yourself up an inexpensive paring knife for $7 and a steel to sharpen it with and keep it sharp. Except for the initial cuts, the front legs and the head, most of your skinning should be done just by pulling the pelt down. You can buy a cheap fleshing knife from Halfords for about $25.

I'm not a Trapper, but this was the first coyote I (managed to) save the pelt.

I made a mess of this guy, two entry holes / one 8" exit across the neck&shoulder area and one 1" exit hole / and blew 1 of his back legs off. I even managed to catch the last 3" of his tail, shot it off too !

I sewed his neck up, but initially missed the 2nd exit hole on the opposite side. It's about an inch wide hole.
