stacy yancy is the one to ask about cage trapping yotes.

i have only ever caught two, both in sets made for cats, i placed the cage and then made a mark where the trigger/pan was sitting, moved the trap out and dug a dirt hole , placed lure and a chunk of bait in the hole , put the cage back and wired a piece of feather and fur in the back of the cage, all as yancy had told described to do.

i've caught many fox, cats, coons, mink, and such on that set and twice coyotes, but unless oyu legally have to use a cage for yotes i would not go that route unless you are trying to cage one for the hell of it.

LIVE BAIT That seems to be the best from concensus of the others
on this site but is it legal in your area.

live bait is legal for you TnTrapper, and I agree with mike that your chances of getting a yote in a cage trap with anything but live bait are pretty slim.

Here's an answer that you can take to the bank---I don't know, I have never taken a coyote nor a bobcat in a live trap. Still trying. Reading and learning from those of you that have had such luck.

my big Hav-hart has a box on the back that come's off for transport or it is a live bait container with a wire door that slides up and down.....target animal's can see the live bait [pigeon,chicken chick's ,tame rabbit]but can't get to it even after the catch....for yote's mine would have to be bigger... I have fooled a fox or two in it...and had the yote's try rolling it around before...they didn't get the bait though....
