I put a wireless baby monitor in the coupe , at 3:30 the chickens went wild , got the gun and light and went out in short pants , adreniline pumping freezing cold , started getting close enough to be able to see the coupe and the clucking stopped , he must have heard me coming as I never got a look at him , got to get a head count when it gets light , maybe tonight ----

Trap It

Would it be possible for you to trap it? I don't know a lot about trapping, but I do know that it sounds like the cat is coming to your chickens every night, looking for chickens, and some type of trap baited with chicken sounds like it would work to me.

Man I lost probably 20 chickens this year to coyotes. Trap them, it works. I kept the traps covered during the day and told all my neighbors to make sure their cats/dogs were in by dark. I caught two coyotes and haven't had any problems since. Saw a gray fox in the yard the other night, and reset the traps.

sly as a fox

Traps will probably work on the bobcat but probably not on the fox. Foxes are cunning and way to smart to get caught in a trap.... at least that is what I learned by watching cartoons when I was a kid.

preditor hunting

I have 7 traps set now for over 2 weeks with no flash trail cams on the traps and it is either his pure luck or he is very smart as he has stepped within an inch of a trap numerous times ------- from watching you-tube I think I done a good job concealing the traps and placing a few things in his path to steer him into them , dug a small hole for the trap then covered it with wax paper and shook light dirt thru a sifter over the paper till covered and then some leaves and pine needles ----------- the cat will not even look at dead chicken , I put out bait for him thinking it would draw him to the trap or at least he'd got his fill then he would leave the chickens alone , but he will actually sit down over the food and has yet to take a piece , he wants live bait --------- when I first set up the cams I got some shots of coyotes , a friend give me two of those preditor alerts , solar powered boxes that come on at dark flashing a red LED light , this must work on coyotes as they have yet to be seen again but the cat is in the picture and you can see the red beam in the pic ------ a friend told me to put a baby monitor in the coupe , first night at 3:30 it sounds like all the chickens are in the kitchen , go out the back door quietly with a gun ( I live rural ) and flashlight and can hear the ruckus going on , walked about 100 feet and was just about to turn the corner where I could see and all the noise stopped , I think that was my fault for using a flashight -----by the weekend I should have the electric fence up and running and maybe it will be over , hope to get a pic of him hitting by the juice ----------- I can see why people get hooked on preditor hunting

To the guy who said fox can't be trapped, you obviously know nothing about trapping...no disrespect meant.

You'll never catch anything using a dead chicken. They want fresh meat. Try putting one of your chickens in a small cage outside of the coop. Then put every single one of your traps around that small cage. When the cat or yote comes by it will circle that lone chicken, looking for a way to get at it. Eventually it will hit a trap. In my case the yotes kept going into my coop at the same spot, so I laid 6 traps right by their entrance. If all else fails make a few snares.

It was me

That guy was me and it is obviously a joke. Go back an reread what I wrote. Hint: look for the word cartoons.

Tip for bobcat trap.

Get a chicken wind and hang it from a string a couple of feet off the ground. Place a trap are two underneath the chicken wing.

This is a good technique for out in the woods. Might not work quite as well when you have a ton of live chickens right next to it but worth a try.

Dead Bait

I never tried the hanging chicken method , it sounds like it might get a bite , did gather long feathers and tied them into a bird tail , applied lure to them and hung them over the traps ------- I tried the bucket method but it has dead bait in it , I got this from the Coon Ass side of the state , cut a 2 inch hole in the center of the bottom of the bucket , then slice pie shaped pieces and leave them in place , they will bend in easily , it is told that the cat will stick it's head into the flaps to get the bait and be stuck with a bucket tied to a tree on it's head . yet to see it work
