Did you practice good scent control when making your sets? There may have been some human scent there that was scaring them away.

sent could be a part of it, but with in a few days most if not all sent would be gone.where about are you trapping? it may be the lure. i know alot of guys will tell you thats not true for some reason but not all lures work everywhere. may have to try a few to find on that triggers a responce from them where you are at. i would think real hard about a meat based bait this time of year. i bet that would change there minds about walking by just my 2 cents

try this one. get yourself a 3/4 inch wood drill bit. drill a hole in a tree about 2 inches deep. place your trap about 16 to 20 inches from the tree. a trap that was boiled and scent free. put a good lure in the hole you drilled. the coyote or fox will think a woodpecker drilled the hole he or she will be so interested in the hole with the good smell that they will never think of the trap at the base of the tree. I learned this on a johhny thrope videa it works good. He made a lifetime in your area. let me know if it worked. Walt.

How much lure are you applying to the set? If to much lure is applied, the animal has no need to walk in and investigate because they can smell it from a distance away.
Rule of thumb:
If it's warm out use 1/2 of what you normally would use at a set.
If it's extremely cold, use what you normally use.
If it's way below freezing, double what you use.
