pass-thru,
That's awesome, I look forward to your posts. What size traps/setups you using to catch your 'yotes and foxes? I'm getting ready to put out some sets for 'yotes/cats/foxes but I always wait until deer season is over to keep from pushing deer off of my property during the season. I'm really looking forward to it though. I may actually jump the gun and set some this weekend!


I don't trap in TN and don't have the rubber jaw requirement. I use MB traps 450, 650 and mostly 550. I like 550's because they are fast, easy to bed, easy on fox and non-targets. You can get them in rubber jaw, I recommend 2 springs, and caught the 4-coil pins off. Another good trap is the jake trap.

That is awesome man.

Question, what is laying in front of the coyotes on the floor?
Looks like another animal of some kind but I can't make it out.


That's a possum. A little on the small side.

I don't believe we have the rubber jaw requirement either...I sure hope not as i just bought (3) sleepy creek 1-3/4's. Ha ha. I'm easing my way into this and have mostly focused on coons. I'm having to self educate myself, asking questions, watching youtube videos, etc. I was wondering are you using dirt hole sets or flat sets? Ever fool with snares? Man, I really hope TN doesn't have a rubber jaw requirement, I read "the book" and I don't remember that standing out to me.

I would ask the question in the TWRA section for clarification. I have always heard TN trappers refer to the rubber jaw requirement. Check out TCA 70-4-120. The regs are not very clear to me.

I've read the TCA and re-read the hunting guide and I think I'm good with using steel jaws. The main thing I see, and have noticed before, is the restriction on trap size and I assume that is geared to keep folks from trapping bears and seriously injuring humans who might step in a trap.

Got any pics of the fox and yotes after skining? I do a little predator calling every year after deer season and have no idea how to get pelts ready to sell.

Here's some pics of fur drying last year. There is a whole process, if you do an internet search you can find some good references. To do fox and yote, you can get by with an initial investment of under $100.
