I have never used bait with snares. Always set on trails where I know they are traveling.

^^^ What he said....

Snaring along a trail is a pretty minimal intrusion. Once you place the snare, you can see if it's been tripped from a distance, meaning you don't have to interact with the trap, leaving more human scent. If you're baiting, then you might have to interact with the trap, which makes it "hot" again.

Additionally, it's hard to set up a snare where they can only access the bait THROUGH the snare. The only success I've had with baiting snares is to throw the bait into the middle of a culvert pipe and place snares at both ends. Some of my cousins use 30gal barrels or corrugated culvert pipe partially buried or staked so they can't move, with bait in the center and snares at each end.

Personally, from my experience, it's much easier to just place traps where you know coyotes naturally travel than to try to bait them to come somewhere they wouldn't usually go. The more you mess with an area, the more likely the coyotes will shy away.

another thing you could try is to find the thickest/ brushiest land you can find and make a bait station in the middle of the thick stuff after awhile the yotes will find it and make trails to the bait pile then ya can set the snares in there trails...

Happy trapping
