    That dirt mound was from a badger I had in a trap. I have been selling them on the carcass but i might start skinning them out myself coming up here since my freezers are getting full

    Such a stark contrast to life here in Southern California. I understand the reality of life out there, but we're so far removed from activities like this its odd to see.

    They look so much like the coyotes we have out here, but trapping them like this would surely land one in court or in the slammer. Just a different world.

    Seems effective. What bait you using?

    Up here the coyote numbers are really high and they give the ranchers lots of trouble killing their livestock. And they are hard on the fawns as well. So there really isn't anyone up here that minds them being controlled. I use two different types of bait. One is bobcat meat based the other is beaver meat. I use them along with other lures

    I assumed as much. I wonder if motion sensing autoguns have the coyote facial recognition software yet. If not, its coming!

    The traps I mostly use are my-550. Not a super big trap. Ya we have quite a few badgers up here. I never target them but have caught 4-5 so far this year. I kept a couple and let a couple go

    Great Pictures Derek. Are the pelts prime already? Looks like you have the technique down pat for yotes!

    I don't understand this type of hunting but I am very interested in it. Derek can you set up a game camera?

    The coyotes up here start priming up in the middle of October. This is my second year trapping so I'm still doing a lot of learning with every catch. I have tried setting a trail camera up on video mode to watch how the coyotes approach my sets but I haven't caught any while doing that

    Here's a few more pics from the last couple days. I actually ended up filling my freezers so I had to start skinning a few.

    do you have wolves in your area. some of those look like coywolf hybrids. maybe it's just because our desert coyotes are so much smaller and skinnier

    It is very rare to see wolves in our area. I seen one a few years back, the only one I have ever seen around here. There are quite a few right next to us in Minnesota and Montana

    Okay, I have to ask. You've got a badger in the trap and he's madder than hell because you've got him in there. How do you release him without him turning on you?
