How to trap coyotes in the snow, Ice and mud in the north with Harry from F&T Fur Harvester’s Trading Post


 trapping radio 56 coyote trapping in snow


This week on Trapping Across America we have an interview with Harry from F&T Fur Harvester’s Trading Post. many of you have seen Harry at a trapping convention or talked to him on the phone when placing an order with F&T. The reason I asked him to do an interview with us, is that he traps in the snow and ice up in the north county. We have received a lot of questions about keeping coyote traps working when mother nature blows the white stuff everywhere. I have always found it better to take advice from a trapper that deals with a certain problem and found away to work though it.

PREDATOR CONTROL GROUP’S product of the week is…..YOTE DOPE…   Yote Dope is a hyper-gland lure that is made by Clint Locklear from Predator Control Group. This lure is made for adult coyotes, both Alpha Males and Alpha females. This is not you normal fresh or rotten down gland lure, but a hyper gland lure that is loaded with other oils and musks to target adult coyotes.

NOTE from Clint, I am looking for mink and otter glands. If you have some or will have some, I would like to talk money or lure trades with you.

    Hey Clint I been listening to you’re shows alot of good information. We have been playing with some dirt hole sets and flat sets and had luck with both. You guys keep talking about modified traps and I have been looking into buying factory modified montana #3 traps or mb550 or 650. There are several options and one is lamination. What does lamination do for you and what is difference between inside lamination and outside lamination. Pros and cons. I would greatly appreciate your opinion on these traps. We’re just getting started and I wanna be good and ready for next trapping season. Thanks!

      I will get to this question in the next month on the show. Great question. The down and dirty is that lamination gives you more holding surface on the animal, allows stronger traps and you get less if any damage on the animal. Plus public relations.

    Great show. Harry definately knows how to catch coyotes in the freezing weather. A lot of the Ohio trappers have used waxed dirt for many years now. I liked him talking about the trail sets for the hard to catch coyotes. I have been in the upper region of Michigan and it is an outdoorsmans paradise. There was a lot of really good information in this radio show when listened to closely. I did not realize how waxed traps held that many odors. I would like to give full metal jacket a try on my canine traps. I have trapped over 30 years and this industry gets better and better with traps and knowledge.
    When I was 14 years old in 1969 I took instruction from Sheldon Colvin in Albany Ohio and he showed me a dirthole set for fox, a pocket set for muskrats and coon and an elbow set for mink. I also bought some of his Good Luck lures. There were no coyotes or deer in my area at that time and we used all the old fashioned Victor traps. Now in 2013 products are much more advanced and lures are way better and the knowledge is light years ahead of what it used to be. It is good to be alive in 2013.
