:?: Resetting on catch spots? i haven' thad this question because i haven't cought anything before but now i would like some advice.

Should i reset on both the Coyote and Fox Snares i just cought? :?: (With new snares i am sure).

What about where i cought the skunk? :?:
my logic is the coyote and fox yes, but the skunk stunk it up (looked like a coyote was bugging the skunk and it sprayed him, the coyote was rolling and sliding around in the snow like he was trying to rub the smell off, i pulled the trap 2 weeks ago but wounder if i should have just reset a new trap or used the same one? :?: it was a bob cat set.
thanks.

Yes to all. Skunks spray when they're distressed. This adds a huge curiosity factor which is why skunk is used in many long-distance calls, and curiosity canine lures. While I wouldn't reset right on the skunky location, I would go about 25 yards out and set snares encircling it in available game trails. :)

Like Lil Bit said, definitely reset in all of those spots.

ditto here.i reset cacth circles often. if useing a baited set i wouldnt rebait just redo the set i always figure that the bait left plus the smell of the critter caught should be more than enough to pull another one to the set
