BOBCAT AND COYOTE METHODS
BOBCAT AND COYOTE METHODSóWould like information on trapping bobcat and coyote; also method of skinning.
For coyotes, find a place near a trail, or a picket fence, where the brush forms a natural path. Put bait between the bushes and set a trap on either side. Dig a hole to set the trap in and cover it with the leaves from under the brush. Lay a stick on each side of the trap and leave a narrow entrance. If you are short of traps, you can place a bush in one entrance. Leave everything looking as natural as possible. . A good set fur the bobcat is to make a very small pen and set a trap in the entrance. Tie a rabbit in the pen and have it so arranged that the cat will have to stand on the trap while it eats. Make the set against the side of a tall bluff or ridge, or in the canyons, where they cross from one pile of rocks to another. Place the pen on the sunny side of a tree, if possible; this will assure you dry covering for the trap. Use the No. I double spring trap for both animals. The correct way to skin the animals is to split the skin down the bind legs and pull it over the head.
