if you want to get an idea how far to set your traps back ect do this.... if you have a coyote size dog or friend, put out some d'irt holes without traps, bait or scent them up . Watch where the dog steps and sniffs or works set... then this can help you position your traps properly..... Now some times the yotes step differantly, then if this happens alot , adjust the position of yr traps if tracks at set are really close to your trap pan. If no tracks or way away fm set, time to make differant types of sets or snares in other areas. Good luck. keep asking questions... Congrats on yote.
