    Default same snare, two dogs

    the area im trapping in has coyote and fox sign everywhere.....i plan on snaring mainly off of bait piles...both animals will be hitting them so is there a size i can open my snares too to take both coyote and fox?

    its not so much as the size of the loop but more of how high it is set off the ground. If it is high enough for a fox it will probably be to low to get a yote at least one of decent size and vice versa if it is high enough for a yote a fox will probably go under it. There are of course the exceptions but it wouldnt be very common.

    You can sometimes beat the height difference by setting a little low for coyote height (approx. 9" above surface) and using a "chin stick" to get fox to raise their heads into the higher loop. As for size, I would stick with fox-size loops (approx. 7 - 8" dia.) to avoid hip catches (when they jump through larger loops) on fox with coyote size loops (approx. 10" dia.). Just my thoughts and experience.
