As I stated in a previous blog post, the female Alpha coyotes are about to give birth to pups or already have. My brother came down and road the line on the Cattle Farm with me today and as we were riding behind the landowner's pool house about 75 yards, I nearly ran the Honda off into a freshly dug coyote den. It was dug last night because the dirt was still wet. I contacted the landowner and showed it to him. I was out of traps (gonna order more) so I pulled one from another location on the farm that wasn't producing. Some trappers say stay away from the dens, while the old western wolfers set traps at the den entrance. I take the location and intuition I get from a particular coyotes' behavior as to whether I will set a den or not. Since this female was so bold as to dig her den in an open pasture among the cattle and just 75 yards from the landowner's pool house, I decided to put in a blind set(a set with no scent) and try to catch her coming back to the den. There is a possibility that she was in the den as I was setting the trap. Nonetheless, she is very pregnant and about to give birth. This is the "Holy Grail" of Coyote Trapping. Few trappers are ever fortunate enough to find a den. This is the second one I've found on this Farm so far.
