The Temptation of Coyote
« on: January 21, 2023, 02:52:45 PM »
He is very close to the cage and he keeps coming back.  Odds are very long that he would go in. I believe coyotes don't like the enclosed space AND they pick up on the electro-magnetic field the metal cage mesh and frame put off.

Odds are long but happens every year. Few of them end up in cages.

I have a theory I am going to try when I get some shop time.I see them in and out of steel culverts all the time. I bought a chunk of culvert to turn into a live trap to see if I can get some yotes in it.

Great idea! I recommend making it a double door trap with the trigger a pin pulled when the bait, hanging in the middle, is pulled.

I could see this working. I saw a coyote off the road one time in a field I could hunt. Drove a little bit to some cover, jumped out to out the sneak on and no coyote. Snuck closer and he was on the other side of the road making good time away from me. Went and checked his tracks and he used a culvert to shoot under the highway.

Alternative idea: Build a trap that slides in a culvert, no sides just back and door. Set it right in dry culverts. I have considered this. Most culverts around here are 30" so I thought about building this to slip in that size. Haven't gotten around to it.

We have seen this so many times. They will even sleep in them at times. We have a pond that we built and has a culvert so the water flows out when it gets too high before washing over the pond edge and eroding it. From the right angle a guy can see into it from sways out. I always stop and look. I have killed more than a few yotes laying up in it. Itís partially buried and and stays cool and shaded in the summer they love to lay in it.

In culverts on rds around here they know itís quicker to dive into a culvert instead of jumping the fences. Since some have hog wire on them and they canít just run through them.

Also a play I have thought about trying as well on the pond culverts like I mentioned in the above post.

EMT is not a problem, wire actually disperses EMT
I built a large trap with a electrical sensor to trigger the trap. My dog would not even go in.
