OK, this is my first year in many that I have started trapping again. When I was in high school (don't ask how long ago that was) we trapped and did fairly well. Back then any and all methods were a guarded secret. We really didn't know much about it and made stuff up, some worked, some didn't. Now I'm older and supposedly wiser, but it seems the critters are too. I've been putting out fox and 'yote sets, but all I get is uncovered pans and flipped traps. I've dyed and waxed everything except myself, I use a canvas to cover the ground and use rubber gloves which are stored in a zip lock bag. I've studied this forum and used many tips, thanks by the way. I realize I'm trapping in a rather heavily trapped area, and the critters are more than likely educated to some degree. My trap placement is approx. 4" to the right and 8" back from the hole. Could I be using the wrong lure? I pains takingly attempt to make the area look as natural as I possibly can. I know they are there, because we have seen many signs. Lots of scat, holes, partridge feathers, rabbit parts, etc. Any good tips, hints or clues as to what to do next? Please help!! ***** are going fine, however.
