I live in southern Maine and need to trap some coyotes. Which size do you recommend? what do you use for bait? How well do they work for coyotes?
If you read through our COYOTE CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn there are many kinds of “live” traps. But as far as we’re concerned, the large cages are the best way to go. We’ve had great success with the LT152248RD fitted with our LIVE BAIT CAGE. Coyote, bobcat and fox can’t resist entering these traps when outfitted with a live bait cage and then baited with a live animal. These traps are highly effective and efficient generally catching the targeted animal as soon as they come around foraging.
