think u oughta post a whole thread on trapping yotes.differant methods allowed and such.ive noticed on my lease and have heard from others that the yotes made a tremendous increase after gustav.which in turn hurts the wildlife populations.deer sightings are down and carcasses im ready to do whatever.even had em running into the camping area.

I've been told that the best bait for yotes is old chicken. Get some leg 1/4's and let them spoil for a few days then did a fairly shallow hole and bury it. From what I hear they can smell it from quite a distance and will dig all night to get at it. If you could pinpoint the place where they are coming into your yard you create some sort of fennel and snare them. I've snared them in the woods behind my house on well used trails but they won't go near the cage traps.

I've caught my biggest yote ever 2 yrs ago with a dead rabbit. There was an old propane tank on this particular farm I was trapping. I dug a hole about 6" wide and went about 2 feet under the tank put rabbit at back if hole. I Placed trap at base of hole, thus is a version of a cubby set.Click image for larger version
