Default Coyote Bait

Anyone bait coyotes and what do you use for bait? Is there a certain bait that coyotes will come to but may not interest coons? How much bait do you need to attract a pack? Do you out bait sites in the bush or in fields? What time of day do you watch bait sites? Thanks, Spence.

If legal use a road kill deer. Drag it off onto the woods, and open up the guts. The yotes will find it in a day or two. As for the time to check. Well I've had yotes come into my gut piles all different time of the day and night. Mostly night is when they hit it though.

I have called in coyotes and skinned them and came back the next morning to find other coyotes eating their carcass.

Fill a Mason jar with chicken guts. Then set the jar out in the sun for a few weeks. Then just remove lid when hunting. Be sure to set upwind of the bait!
I don't know how well it would work this time of year, but in northern Michigan during January and February it brings them in.

Stake a roadkilled house cat down then set traps at scent post sets 40 to 50 feet away from the cat.

i don't know about watching the bait, but i use bever carcasses. i trap with them, and it works fairly well. might as well use the whole beaver, not just the pelt. but usually night works for coyotes, but you can also catch them in the morning, and evening. i've also seen coyotes walking around in the middle of the day.

Shoot a couple of rabbits, tie them behind a truck or 4-wheeler, and drag'em up and down the road that morning. Come back and call coyotes that evening. They are more likely to buy the wounded rabbit gig if they see and smell rabbit.
