Fox set ideas

I scouted some new teritory this morning and came across a boulder. It is 3 ft high and as big around with a few small shelfs/ levels to it. Near the top was a pile of scatt. Fox i believe...looked just like yote scatt, had hair in it, but was only 1/2 as big. I know I could put in a dirt hole near the boulder, or even a scent post....but then I will catch the yotes that are in the area....ANY IDEAS???

I'm with Asa, "in general" and "I don't know what you had in mind with the three foot high boulders...". You haven't given us enough info or your thoughts; I'll give you a couple of "ifs". If you are trapping for cats boulders usually are a good thing. If you are in an area if lots of boulders setting around them can pay off. If you have a set made close to a boulder and you get a fresh snow, e.g., one that drives the prey critters into and under the rocks, the coyotes will often work in close especially if the boulder is a bit over hung so as to leave a patch of bare ground at the base.
