I heard of people using cats for bait and they probably poop when the coyotes are circling.

Playing with fire, about to feel the "Hammer"....

We had company last night sleeping in the room where the alarm is and my wife turned it off so it wouldn't wake the guest. Haven't seen a coyote here in a month of baiting. He was lucky last night but.....

Dang I hate equipment failure. We were patiently waiting the alarm to go off last night. I felt sure something would come in, but no alarms all night. Today at noon I check the camera. Obviously we missed some ops. Does any one know where the thread is about adding an antenna to a driveway alarm? I did some searching today and found where DU and Pmack said it was supposed to be 21" or 22" coated wire but I need some info to tell me where to attach it. I remember a thread way back at least a couple years ago where somebody showed how to modify the receiver. I have the receiver set about 90 yds away from the detectors, nothing between us but a window. Last night the detectors were about 18" high but I lowered on to 12" today to see if that would help. I goes off when I am out there but NOT TOO GOOD when the predators come.

The coyote was all we could have shot but we would have enjoyed watching the fat cat and fox.

I bet nobody here has ever had an obstruction in front of the barrel that you couldn't see through the scope? Last year I shot a hole in a popup ground blind with a muzzle loader cause a bobcat was so close, less than 10 ft, still killed the cat. Last night the window seal was about 1/2" too high on a new setup I rigged in a dark room. I will remember this one cause the 53gr VMAX didn't make it to the coyote. Score a "hole in one" for the coyote. I dare him to come back.

Dang Week, you're giving that coyote way too many opportunities. I don't have the photos of the Driveway Alarm anymore. 6mm might still have them, but you are correct the antenna was 22" on the sender and also the receiver. all you have to do is take apart each unit and solder the existing small antenna wire to the stripped end of the 22" antenna. Be sure to drill your exit hole for the small antenna wire before you solder it. I used wiring ties to hold it alongside the units, but you could do it with rubber bands as well.

Hole in the Wall Ranch comes to mind. LOL. Stuff happens when hunting. I met a guy who told me a few years ago about busting the window out of his hunting shack when he tried to stick the rifle barrel out. Oops, forgot to open the window. He replaced the window, and sometime later did it again. Every time I stay at my cabin I think of that and open the window before I do anything else.

As to coyotes, I haven’t seen one since the first week of November. Very slow here.

As to DoubleUp's antenna modification, below are some photos.

This is the receiver with the external antenna attached. Also it has an external speaker jack attached that allows for an inline volume adjustment. The original speaker was so loud, even on low that it would wake the dead, so this jack was added to allow for the volume control. I then used earbuds while sleeping at night or headphones. You could also use a speaker of some sort and just adjust the volume up or down to a more comfortable sound and one that a coyote might not hear when the alarm goes off. The volume adjustment is available on Ebay.







This is the sensor (sending unit) with an external antenna attached. This unit was placed in a Sterillite box to keep it out of the weather.

thanks for the rewind 06, much appreciated. We are definitely having animals eat for free right now. I will add the antennas ASAP. Had a red and gray fox there last night with no alarm. The "window seal" coyote has not been back. No surprise there.

Things have been slow on my end. The fox are pretty much paired and not showing up at the piles. My "honey hole" spot got invaded by a pair of dogs every day and night. They were marking the bait area heavily so nothing was showing there. Monday night, however, a coyote did pass by at that location so I thought you yoters would like to see. One showed about a month ago too.

Stay after that coyote Week! Its just a matter of time 'til you get him.

Hope you can catch up with the coyote gg. Unwanted dogs can be a real PIA.

Thanks 06 & DU for the antenna and other mods help. I got antennas on both transmitters and one on the receiver. Seems to be doing better with me tripping it now. Tonight will tell about game tripping hopefully. Coyote must have took offense to the window seal deal, he ain't been back. Red and gray foxes are getting their fill now and they get the pass. Waited a month for a coyote to show then blew it. Oh well, I have had worse issues. I forget some of the kills, but the ones that I should have killed that get away stick like glue.

Believe me they stick with you a long time and if they don' you probably should find some other interests. I lost a beautiful black one back in Dec. of 2011 and it still bothers me.

How high are your sensors mounted?

After several years my old alarm system played out and I replaced it with this system. Which works well and is usable at least to 155 yds. My bait pile is 90 yds. and it works very well at that distance. The four sensors have 16850 rechargeable batteries and last a long time without needing a recharge. It is a little more money but has 4 sensors each of which can be set to a different alarm tone.

I now have my sensors at 12" off the ground, had them about 18" before and then read where 06 had his at 12". They just worked perfect, pair of grays came in, one then 2 about 7PM. With the antenna, I can now have the receiver closer to the living room where before it had to be in the window of the guest room we were gonna shoot from. I can actually hear it now without my wife having to tell me it is going off. COOL!!!

DU that 4 sensor looks like it would really work well.
