I always have the best luck camera trapping Canids in December and January. This is a phenomenon other "trappers" have made anecdotal observations about in regards to Bobcats and Mountain Lions...although I haven't had much (or any) experience with either species.
Allow me to show you an example from my time in North Carolina.
The pictures below are almost a year old.
The location is a stream corridor with steep banks, one side buffered by deciduous hardwood forest....the other side has a power line right-of-way running parallel. Great spot for 'yotes to run.
And they do....
For those interested, I'm applying a dab of Lennon's Brand, Super Coyote All-Call to the stick poking out of the bank.
It's also worth noting that I don't make any attempt to cover my own scent when I'm out.
Not long before a big old 'yote comes along to check out the smell.....
To be fair, this isn't the only time I put some sort of scent lure out at this location to attract critters. It doesn't always work this perfectly....but when it does it always makes me feel smarter than I am :)
Enjoy the Canid Season!
