First yote

Postby montana bound » Wed Jan 18, 2012 12:17 pm

Checked my snares this morning before going in to town ,had nothing , gone about an hour. I pull up behind the house and look behind the dog kennels and see this coyote looking at me. I had a snare in a trail about 50 yrds past the dogs compound and he was in it, I ran in the house and got the 22 and put it down. Not bad for a -20 degree morning

Nice.

Looks like he was really working the wire. Are you using a kill spring on an amberg or camlock? If not I would highly recommend you do. About 95% of my snared yotes and fox are DOA with little cable damage. If you dont put them down fast they will chew the wire and be gone.

I run 1x19 cable in either 1/16 or 5/64" with a kill lock set up.
....its like taking x-lax when you have a bad cough. It wont clear up your lungs, but it sure stops you from coughing

I Not sure what kind other then they are Thompson snares. You are right he was working on the wire, he hadnt been in it long though. Went back out this morning to replace the snare(Didnt have time yesterday) and there was a fresh set of tracks running right up the same trail. Oh well it will be back sooner or later.
