When I was a kid my dad cowboy`d for a living a bit up in Kansas on a big Angus rancher`s place.He trapped coyotes and made 30 bucks a dog off of em(helped feed and clothe me and my sister):thumbs:
My question is,where can I find the traps to buy...
I am about top start waging war on yotes where I hunt and guide at..
I don`t like the use of poison baits:sad:and trapping is not the most humane method.Though they are a nuisance I have grown to admire them and their ability to survive.I almost feel sorry for such a smart noble little critter ending his days hung in a trap only to be blasted by my mini14.Then again they eat young deer ,turkeys and ultimately beef cattle calves(Thats when I cross the line from hunter to stock predation hunter) :wink:(aka,Gettin Paid for my skills:cool: and doing what I love,outsmarting Wiley).But I can`t call for em everyday..work negates that:sad:If I could I would hunt yotes and probably never hunt another animal.I love it..They are smart,damned smart..
anyways,where can I find a trapping supplier to order traps.

Go over to 24hourcampfire.com and look in the trapping forum. Probably someone can help you there. Darn huggers got them outlawed in CO, but I still have  a few

I've got them!  What you want?  You going to use snares, or No#2 Duke traps?  Got some Berkshire stakes around here somewhere too(better then pounding those 24" rebar stakes into the ground).

 

Give me a call....

When I was a wildlife mgt biology student at the Univ of AZ I met the local predator & rodent control agent from us fish & wildlife service who gave us a lecture on trapping bobcats,coyotes,foxes,etc.He gave me some of his homemade stink bait which consisted of: calf brains,beaver castor,limburger cheese,female fox,coyote & bobcat urine plus other organs from the animals.He put the ingredients in a gallon pickle jar and set it out in the AZ summer sun to ripen,stirring it occasionally.When opening my jar I had to note which way the wind was blowing it was bad enough to gag a maggott but it worked.

I went to my local hardware store and order 6 coild spring 5.25 inch traps for $8.00 each.

Those heavy screw anchor they use for anchoring moble homes down, is what I use to hold these traps in place, plus I use one inch link chain with some of those splicing rings that you hammer shut.

I liked the Coyote Getter used by Predator & Rodent Control in AZ.It had a tuft of greasy sheep skin on the head,a 38 special blank cartridge with a cyanide tab when yotes bite they push down which fired the blank sending  sodium cyanide into its mouth which vaporized and breathed in spelled curtains for the yote.
