Baits-Wolves donít take-I have tried poisoning coyotes and brush wolves for the past two winters, but they do not take the bait well. I use strychnine and would like to know if there is anything better. If I put poison in only one of six baits, they will often eat the five good ones and leave the other lay.
Those who have used Goesí Liquid poison capsules claim that they are better than strychnine. These capsules are mad and sold by Edmund Goes, Station E, Milwaukee, Wis. Cyanide of potassium and strychnine, equal parts, is said to make a more deadly poison than either one alone. I think your trouble is mostly from not using sufficient care in making the baits. Use lard or tallow and make a hole in each; put the poison in and pinch it shut so that none of the drug is on the surface. Do not let the poison come in contact with the surface of your bait at any time. Do not close the bait with the same knife or stick with which you have introduced the poison.
