We have a track of land in hancock county that i will be living at next year and attending college in milledgeville. since i will be on the land alot more and will have more time to spend in the woods and take care of the property more. we have gotten a few pics of both yotes and bobcats along with many pics of coons. what kind of traps do yall use and how do you bait one in. I have seen pics people have posted using what looks like decent sized foot trap and a pan of bait, food, mixture of some sort. since i new to all of this any help would be great and extreamly helpful. if there is already a link feel free to post it. hopefully with yalls imput i will be as sucessful as "molly" one day, they know how to get it done.
thanks
josh

Like so many on here, I use MB-550's from Minnesota Trapping Supply. I have caught fox, possums, coons, skunk, bobcats, and coyotes with them. I use mostly dirthole and scent post sets, which can both be seen on YouTube.

Josh,
I am new to trapping myself; however it has quickly turned into an addiction. I live in Milledgeville. I would be glad to let you look at some mb-550s and share what little I know.
Bass pro in Macon has recently begun selling some trapping supplies. They carry dukes, which I have no experience with. However, when I held the duke and the mb-550 side by side there was no comparison.
If your serious about trapping, I would recommend that you attend the coyote 101 class put on by familytraprz and barehunter. It will cut down on the learning curve significantly.

I have not gotyen around to reading the book yet but I did watch the video on dirt hole sets. I like that idea and I think that's how I am going to start off. What kind of attraction scents do yall use. In the video they use fox and coyote pee I was thinkin more mouse? Thoughts or suggestions? Has anyone ever used and kind of raw meat to attract them?
