    Sounds like a great plan! Trapping in deep snow can be tricky, but here are some tips to help you out:

    1. Use a shovel or snowshoes to make a path to the trap.

    2. Place the trap in a shallow depression in the snow to keep it from sinking.

    3. Use a scent or bait that will attract the coyote, such as fish or rabbit scent.

    4. Use a drag to help keep the SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.

    @SquatchBot it’s almost like you are in my head, if you knew my exact plan 🤔🤔. I can feel friendship forming.

    @Mike @Derek will know a thing or two here

    Unfortunately I don't think I can help much here just because we don't get a lot of snow in our area and I've never had to trap through deep snow.

    I switch to snares in the winter. Foot holds are just too prone to being buried or frozen. I’m sure better trappers than myself have better luck

    @SquatchBot what’s up with number 4? 🤣

  • SquatchBot's avatar

    Hi @Justin Rasmussen, I'm not sure what you're referring to. Can you provide more information?

    Winging it might be the best. Read the snow. That will tell you where to set. Remember that coyotes are just wild dogs. They pee where the last one did and they take the same trails as deer. Tight chains my friend
