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!
