    Trapping
    Here's a Idea!! Catch him in a Foot hold...It's not hard really if you wear Rubber boots and Gloves when you set traps...we have caught 4 Live ones so far but no black ones...they have beautiful thick Coats this time of year...All I have used at the trap is a scent post stick with Bobcat lure in it..Good Luck...Here's the Big male we caught and my shoulder mount I have from a few years ago.

    Details.
    I need some details on what to get/how to go about getting this done. Would love to get him mounted as well as out of here, my 16 month old son and dogs play right here.

    Trapping
    Get at least a #2 Trap maybe even a #3...It's best to dip them in hot wax to help with scent and freezing..Pick a area with some sign...Scat, Fresh tracks etc and dig a small hole...You want the Trap ground level...Once you have trap set and in hole, Pack dirt around the Trap tight up against the jaws. We place a chunk of pillow filler under pan because you don't want it to feel spongy as he's placing his Foot down on it (The Yote) he will feel this and shy away...Sift some fine Dirt over the Trap. Directly behind the Trap place a scent stick in the ground sticking up angled toward the pan...It's best to use a Old bone of some kind as a visual around your trap, It's thier nature to check out such objects but the number 1 rule I can give you is Don't give up!! Give the trap a fair set...The only thing that scares me is the area that you speak of...It would be easy to trap someones Dog and then you have problems but whatever you decide...Good Luck

    Ya I was thinking about that, on the other hand I would set them right at sun down, and trip them in the morning before I leave for work, at least this way they are only set at night, and that is the only time the camera spots them.

    Traps
    I said it wasn't hard but it's NOT that easy lol They are predators yes but they survive by being cautious and smart. If you start visiting that area that much, The Yote will move on, it wont tolerate your presence under the cover of darkness or not...Just like checking your Deer cam too often and eventually the Deer shy away from it...Just from what I have gathered from you speaking of this area, I would say that it's to risky...They (Yotes) WILL venture into such areas at night but taking the chance with someones Dog or cat getting caught and waking the whole neighborhood up isn't worth it in my opinion.You could mention to your neighbors about your plan to get thier opinion but I'll warn ya...Some people will frown because all they know is how Cute they are..That's why I stopped posting pictures..I have got some nasty Emails about How I'm heartless and gonna burn in hell for being Cruel Blah Blah Blah But anyway.. I would try a live Coyote trap (Tractor Supply has them) in this area but again...Don't expect a quick Catch on a Coyote and this way if you catch a less desirable, You can release it unharmed...Good Luck

    Nice pics.

    Most of the coyotes I've seen (Hyde Co) are black, or very dark. I found a dead pup on a road in Beaufort Co., thinking it was a dog, but it was probably a coyote - lankier than any dog I had seen around. I have a cell phone pic somewhere. Ill try to find it and post it.

    Been hunting a black yote 2!
    I saw a black coyote cross the field behind my house while I was getting ready for work one morning at 8:00am. Another had done the same 1 month earlier that was not black. I have since kept a scoped .17 loaded at the back door in case he tries it again. I never got a trailcam pic of him during deer season. While I hate a coyote, I hope the black 1 is not killed on the interstate behind the field before I can get to him. Good luck. I hope your wife gets that ole black dog. If so, post pics, please.
