How to Build a Coyote Dirt Hole Set

Building a coyote dirt hole set start to finish just got a lot easier. 

It’s that time of year again when fawns start to hit the ground, and they hide for a few weeks as they begin to grow. This is the time when they can be most vulnerable to predators. That’s where we as hunters come into play to minimize the amount of fawns killed and maximize the amount of coyotes we trap by building a coyote dirt hole set.

For a lot of states, coyotes are the only predators allowed to be trapped during the summer months whereas bobcats, raccoons, skunks, and fox are allowed to be trapped up until the end of February, or at least they are here in the south.

That is why it is pertinent to have coyote traps out during the summer, and in this video Editor of Georgia Outdoor News, Brad Gill, is going to teach how to build a successful coyote dirt hole set from start to finish.

So now that you know how, are you ready to go save some fawns? I sure am.

Now I’m sure there are several ways you can build a dirt hole set with a lot of different preferred attractants, but this is how Gill knows best, and sure enough, he’s successful.

So get out there and start building those dirt hole sets and save some fawns this summer. You never know, you may just save the next Boone and Crockett buck.
