How can I trap a coyote?

Discussion in 'Predators and Pests' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Aug 20, 2010.

  1. Hi and thanks! I've had live-traps baited for a while and they are smarter-than-that.
    I sat outside all night (hidden) with the shotgun ready blast them --- and all I get is 'no sleep', and no predators.
    I think I have a wiley coyote family and I want to make them go away.

    A live trap has not ever given me luck with coyotes. You can try a rabbit distress call, but it probaly wont get him into shotgun range. i usually prefer a varmint rifle or my kalishnikov for this problem.

  6. Hi! Yes, digging under fences and taking fowl not shut up in houses at night.

    I would opt for a hot wire running around the outside of the run or lay fencing flat around the perimeter where they dig.
