well since my tags are filled for deer im wanna start trapping yotes/cats.. can someone point me in the right direction and what to buy and how to setup traps ? I know we have a good population of yotes on property and got a few pics of a bobcat.. thanks for any help since my lease is 20 mins from my house checking traps in am or pm will not be a issue.

*For the record I'm new to this* but check out Trapperman.com, search the archives, you can learn a lot there. I started trapping coons using DP's and decided to dedicate some time to the K9's and/or cats. I have some traps and might or might not set some this fall/winter (depending on how deer season goes). In my opinion, practice and preparation will go along way, as you can educate every dog and cat on your property if you're doing it wrong. That link you put looks like a good kit get going in the right direction. Good Luck!

Those bridger 1.75 will work. But might pay off to use a #2 at least, anything with a 6" jaw spread or bigger. I like mb 650s.

Also, very important part of trapping is your anchoring system. Try to pick up some if these...


They work like this...


I use these earth anchors or a 'drag' with let's the animal tangle itself in brush or trees away from the trap site.

after watching some you tube vids..thought about picking up # 3 traps.. also he was using those anchors I will be picking those up as well... how do you know where to set traps ?? my area im hunting is a power line and a watering tank. figured trapping would be better than calling.

A good rule is to set on sign, don't try to make the animal come to you, put it where the animal already is, find tracks and scat, set a trap on top of a coyote track and there's a good chance your going up have an encounter, don't worry about deer or hogs

those wolf fang anchors are awesome, we use 8 inch arrowheads for our tactical comm equipment, those jokers will hold good.

Haha tannerlst that stuff may attract the yotes and cats too! On a serious note, a small amount of talcum powder can be a great cat attractant.

what are some good coyote and or bobcat set attractants for dirt hole sets? I'm learning, haven't caught my first coyote yet. not really targeting the bobcats, but I know there's a lot of them there.

I saw somewhere someone was using caster? do they mean caster oil? anything else that's relatively easy to acquire work? I can get some of the more specialized trapping scents, but I have to make a trip to a specialty store to get them. takes me a while. I will try meat scraps in the hole as well. usually always some deer or hog scraps around camp from gutting & skinning.

I've had pretty good luck using feathers. Put a few down the hole and spread just a few around. They serve as "eye catchers" more than anything.

When trappers refer to caster they are talking about Beaver castor.... Apparently everything like the smell of it and its in most of your commercial baits. I caught a few coyotes last year with some chunks of rabbit meat in the hole and some skunk essence on the backer..

Craven's just mice. Google "just mice". After you get a cat use the bobcat meat as bait for bobcats. I can't say they eat it but they are sure attracted to it. If your using foothold traps don't worry about deer and such. They pull out with no injury, providing your using a bobcat sized trap and not something designed for a bear.
