I have some groundhog meat in a jar full of salt water from earlier in the summer. It is preserved very nicely and I was wondering if I would be good coyote bait? Will the salty smell deter coyotes?

It should have an attraction for all omnivires. Salt IMO doesnt deter any furbearers. Some still use salt(s) as trab bed anti freeze. Be prepared for your fair share of stinkers and grinners unless its very cold out. Then if its too cold raw or salt etc preserved meat doesnt have a lot of odor. If you taint it a little or add some other attractors it may work better for you? But all omnivores will be attracted to it.

I had a bunch given to me. Worked really well on Marten. I intend to trap several next summer and freeze them for use as bait. It has rather distinctive smell to it.
