While Muskrat, Mink and Raccoon trapping in 1966, I noticed a Fox track jumping the creek. I set my first fox trap only to have it dug up, defecated and urinated on, every day for the rest of the season. The insult challenged me to a life long Canine trapping obsession. I've trapped more Coyote and Fox in Southwest Michigan and Northwest Indiana than all the other wildlife and pest control operators in this area, combined together, have seen in their lives. There are no books, seminars, workshops or trappers college that can shortcut the knowledge and experience required to be a professional canine trapper. I purchased books; phone called and took trapping lessons from the best canine trappers in the United States. Herb and Asa Lenon, Donald Bierman, Slim Pedersen, OL Butcher, Garold Weiland, Jim Helfrich, Russ Carman, Craig O’Gorman and Bud Boda are some of the most experienced professionals of their generation. Yet no print or words can educate like my decades of experience in the field trapping. I've trapped, live cage trapped and snared canine across the United States in all kinds of weather and snow.
The boys from other wildlife control companies may catch a coyote, or two, but they will never catch all the coyotes you've seen or heard around your home. After they have exhausted the few sets they know how to make, and wised up the other coyotes, they have to give up prematurely before all the coyotes are gone. If this happens to you with another company and the coyote are still hunting your pets in the winter, call us. We’ll trap behind them and finish the job. Guaranteed results.

Canada’s Ministry of Natural Resources values, appreciates and regulates their natural resources very effectively. Many Canadians still make a living off the land, trapping, like we did in the States years ago. When the question of what was “humane trapping” came up, they did extensive testing on every kind of trap made. Their findings banned many old style traps that didn't do the job they were intended for. Today we have leg hold traps with rubber jaws, spaced apart, to “hold” a foot rather than “pinch” the foot like the old style traps. We've released many non target dogs, after catching them with the rubber traps, without a cut or broken bone in the foot.
Coyote & Fox Trapping Services
Fox will hunt house cats in the winter but rarely attack another canine. Coyote on the other hand will kill and eat cats, dogs and fox, any time of the year, and will actively hunt our pets in the winter. They roam around our homes at night and smell the pet feces, then add the location to their hunting route.

We've spoiled many of our customers, by targeting Coyote ONLY. After I've explained that Fox pose little danger to small canines, some customers request we release them unharmed using both leg hold traps and snares. I really don’t mind because Fox were my first love and the Coyote have taken a toll on them. The only drawback being the Fox occupies the trap or snare for a day, preventing a Coyote catch, and shortens the trapping session by a day.
