Set out a few traps over Thanksgiving and will be hitting it hard after first of the year.
Caught a nice female coyote and had a nice tom on trail cam. Lost a Bridger #3 to who knowns what but it wasn't a small animal, bent our stake.

Dang I hate to see anybody lose a trap
The ground looks rocky. How deep can you drive a conventional stake there?
Will cable/chain disposable type stakes work in that ground?
Maybe some heavy drags ?

I've used some of the cross stakes before, but the soil is too sandy and deep.
The Wolf Fangs I've been using seem to hold pretty well here, but I've only
caught the smaller pests so far this year, possums, skunks, etc.

Looks like a Duke 3 the coyote is modeling

The ground is rocky but we got the 24" stake driven in fine.
Drags are actually preferred by the spouse but I wanted to stake this one, ugh !
Never have used the cables and anchors.

Coyote was caught in a Victor #3 coyote special, 4 coiled.
We set mainly MB 550s and Bridger #3s. We do have some smaller 4 coiled we use also. All offset jaws. Trying out a few new MB Alphas too, they are nice. We use some dogless and some dogged traps.

Have a few more nice drags on the way.

I started using 2 stakes after I caught something and it fought the tree all night till it pulled loose. No game camera on the trap but I think it was a MT. Lion.

Spouse's work schedule was changed so our trapping will really start this month.
Hoping snow depths are not great, makes for tough getting around the ranch.

Mt lion tag in pocket just in case.

Do you eat them? A lot of western books I've read say they are good eating and was wondering if that was true.

We have eaten them in the past. The meat is similar to pork but has a sweeter taste and a kind of weird smell when cooking.
Not bad but not my favorite either.
