I was thinking about putting out a couple of traps to try to get rid of some of those big coyotes before they eat everything up there. I've tried to nail a few, but they've gotten wise to me and I can't stay up there 24/7. But a trap can. Those large traps are outrageous They're $150 and up for the 2 foot tall/wide traps.. http://www.trucatchtraps.com/large-animal-traps Been looking at some videos and I found a home made style that I liked. It'll just take some of my "scrap lumber" pile and some garden wire. The wire was about $26 at tractor supply. And I'll have enough wire to do probably 3 traps by the time it's said and done. I can live with that. Here's some pictures before I get it finished. All I have to do is put a guillotine door on the front and nail the wire on and get it put out tomorrow. Here's the door trip that'll hold the door open until something tries to snatch the bait. I'll try to get some pics of it tomorrow after I finish it and maybe even a few up on the mountain after I set it out. I have a place in mind that will probably be a dandy spot for a big trap.
