Possible coyote trap?
« on: November 15, 2018, 06:02:02 PM »
So I was googling around and found a video of a skittish dog trap, has anybody built anything like this? Apparently this trap is effective for its purpose but how could it be improved to handle a yote. It has a floor option and they recommend a net over the top.

That wouldn't be very cost effective at all.
You would have to have floor panels because coyotes dig, oh................ and they climb and jump high too so you need a roof cover unless those panels are at least six feet high.
The panels can't flop in the wind so all of the panels would have to be braced.
It would cost you more to make it than what coyotes are worth.

Where would you set that thing?
How far do you think you would drag that thing in the woods?

Good luck

I guess the challenge of trapping coyotes seems to me, funner than most folks here. I have an idea for a net trap that would be used with a dirt hole type set.

Does anyone remember offhand how many filaments donít work in a light bulb? :chuckle:

If you lived somewhere like I do, you could set up a mini chicken coop.   You might get all sorts of furbearers.   Laser trigger mechanism to slam a door shut.  That would be the tricky part.
