^^^^^That one's nice and pale, eh?^^^^^

I emptied out the shed this week so there's lots of room in there now. Still running two bait sites and still catching coyotes. One coyote at one site yesterday and two at the other today. They're getting a bit thin at the shoulders but nothing terrible yet. I'll go one more week and then......I might go another one.

Caught these last week. Not too bad for late season coyotes.

I caught four coyotes the other day and only one was worth putting up. I'll be snaring right to the bitter end but only because I'm helping a local rancher with a coyote problem. I wish that he had have contacted me in November because he has a ton there. I already have a few 330's out but this time next week it'll be full time nuisance beaver time. I don't want to go hard just yet because I still have coyote pelts in the freezer to deal with. Once I catch up it's game on.

Yesterday's catch. Three out of four decent coyotes. The brown one looks very nice.

Do you set your bait and allow them to investigate/eat before setting your snares?

Yes, I put the bait out and hang snares once I have trails to set on.
