Had a report in the neighborhood behind us, that a pack of 8 coyotes were roaming the streets during mid morning. We back up to a flood plain off lake lavon, with houses on 3 sides. Well I trapped one that we had seen in my neighbors yard last fall, nasty looking yote and very mangy.
After the recent report I decided to set out a couple of traps and try to thin them out a bit. Got one Saturday morning after a 2 day sit on the traps. Gonna run about half a dozen traps couple miles up the road at my parent place. They have had a healthy population for years and shoot one every so often. The lady across the creek from them raises Roosters and has had issues with coyotes and bobcats fairly regularly, hopefully I can help her out too. More coyotes to fall, I'm gonna be heading out this weekend to run about 24 coil spring traps and 2 dozen duke's DP traps. Be nice to get my first bobcat in a trap too, should be good chances with all the quail and rats we saw this year. Adios and thanks for looking!
Trapped Coyote #1 for the year:

I like hearing them in the evenings, adds to the whole outer city living thing. But, when they start running in packs of 8 or even less they are a killing machine. Almost any size pet they deem a threat or edible is in danger. I'll never get them all and don't want too, but they need a little culling.

Tell the neighbors to keep their dogs locked up for a while. They may get pissed if their family pet gets caught in one.

All yards are fenced and no pets roam free. An occasional stray comes through, but rarely. Believe me the last thing i want is catch someones pet.

glad your getting them, keep updates coming! I saw two running around the heart of suburb keller last year. Amazing how brazen they get.

Nice. They are everywhere though. One down, a million more to go. You have to constantly trap or won't do any good as I am sure you know.

What is your trap setup? Bait?

I have 2 packs running my place and have been popping them as targets of opportunity. They don't respond to calling at all. I had one break a snare and take off with it. I have some old leg hold traps that I can use. I need a little guidance if you don't mind.

Using the MB 550 coil spring trap, Closed Jaw. Berkshire heavy duty anchor with 15-20" long cable. Still trying various baits and lures, at home and the lease. Seems most have hit the O gormans Gov Call and Freeboroughs Mouse meat. You tube is your friend. A little bit of preparation and maintenance is involved. As well as keeping the set area as scent free as possible. I'm still learning and only on my second year.
