I'm going to give it another couple weeks. I haven't seen a yote track in 3 weeks and I'm not getting any on camera either. Gotta let the place cool down before turkey season.

Why not pull your traps? Let your scent and traffic stop. Your in there every day with a damn Ranger...I'd leave to!
Ranger don't bother them. Guys check traps on foot every day and still catch yotes. Most of my snares are on field edges, I only have a few in the woods and they are right off of the ATV path, I leave no scent. How do you think snare master Brian checks his stuff?

I hope you get the 228 acres. I got of my farms off of Craigslist!

I have a buddy that runs hounds every weekend on coyotes in Pennsylvania. He says if you kill one, seven more move in! In fact, i have seen him run his hounds on game lands(public hunting) the day after deer season and have them going all day. The day before the place was packed with hunters.

Ya you can't ever get them all. Between me and another guy we've taken out about 20 in the last 2 years.

Well I thought I was about done, til this bastard came through last night. He skirted around within 25 yards of 4 other snares.
Did he duck that snare?

I walk my sets every day but I stay back from them when checking if they've been knocked down.
