Caught my first coyote in a dispatch snare..............however it was still alive.
It got tangled pretty well..........but, it was in shorter sage brush.
Is there a wrong way of setting these snares to have a yote alive when you arrive?
If they can't set the lock well you will see that. A solid anchor tied off high, that doesn't give will help set the lock. If the snare is in vegetation that is springy it almost acts like a shock spring. One other thing to keep in mind is a deer caught in an area that has springy vegetation may not be able to open the BAD for the same reason as above. Keep in mind that coyotes, just like people, won't always do what you think they should. Some just won't take a run after caught and some will.
