This bait was developed with the coyote in mind. It is a food, and should be used as such. It was developed for the dirt hole set, but it can also be used on a flat set. I like a bone set for this. It also works well for fox and bobcat. In Mississippi I caught sixteen of the nineteen bobcats on Canine Peanut Butter in the three weeks I was there. Use one teaspoon per set, smeared in the hole. It is best between dispersal and mating season.
