I hadn't trapped for about 30 years and a rancher wanted some coyotes taken off of his place. He had about a dozen traps so I thought I would help him out. I have caught one coyote and 15 Jack rabbits. Flats sets and bait hole sets. Even using a scent pole set, using only coyote piss to attract predator. Can't seem to keep the rabbits out of the sets. I'm using bait and lures from F&T. Never had this happen before. Is there something I'm doing wrong? At least I know the traps are working good, not freezing etc.

Urine will up the rabbit catch. need to adjust your pan tension up to about 4 lbs.

Are the coyote eating the Jack's? I don't remember having a whole rabbit in a foothold, they get found by something first.

No the coyotes aren't getting to the rabbits. I check them everyday, because when rabbits are in the traps them the coyotes aren't. I'm surprised that a coyote hasn't found one before me though.
