Deer are attracted to most lures that contain castor,as are most animals.
I have quietly floated up to castor mounds I have made and watched 4 deer investigate one mound.The area looked like a heard of buffaloe had spent the night there.
Salt in the urine can also attract deer and other animals.

|buckskin||Deer are always screwing up my sets, earlier this winter I had 4 sets out and one night 3 of them were set off by deer. I think they were oddly attracted to the lure I was using...|

One of the things I overlooked is that deer also frequent this same area. The farmer told me one of my traps (pee post set) was set off last night. He said there are deer tracks in the dirt near the trap. Oh well, at least I didn't have to go out there and release a deer from the trap. That probably would not have ended well for me.....

I made 2 pee post sets and 2 dirthole sets today. All are within 100yds of eachother along the dam and one side of the pond. I have a camera pointed at the dirthole on the side of the dam. I also saw fresh canine tracks that are good sized. I am now using leftover, moldy fried chicken for bait inside the holes. I don't really want to buy commerical bait with just a few weeks left in the season.

|RdFx||Use foothold vs leg hold. Using proper trap size you will get a paw catch. Are you using snares for your canines?|

are you using these as a leg-hold trap?
We are not allowed to use leg-hold traps up here.

I would go to both ends of the dam and dig a dirt hole at each end.Get em coming and going.

I've got coyotes on the camera right now, but only still pictures. Time will tell if they mind the cameras or not.
Q: Will coyotes work dirt hole sets on hillsides from the top, bottom, or sides?
I trap a farm with a man-made pond that has a sizeable dam on one end. The coyotes frequently leave scat along the top edge of the dam. There's no real cover to funnel them into a particular direction. My thought is to drill a hole straight into the dam from the side and make it look like something is tunneling. My main bait is dead rats trapped from inside the horse barn. I stuff them deep into the holes and spray fox urine around the set to gain their interest.
