OK guys...Thanks for your help.
Here's the deal...I have been seeing lots of coyote and cat tracks while turkey hunting. I have virtually no experience trapping fox, coyotes or cats. (I accidently caught a fox in a box trap once). Anyway, I'm the type that has to actually do something in order to become proficient. So, I am thinking about making a couple of sets (minus the trap) to practice and put a trail camera overlooking each one. Would I be hurting my chances this fall of catching something? And next, I know different lures are more attractive at different times so what would you suggest as a starting point? I am sure I will need to change come season but am mostly looking for practice right now. I just hate to throw money away on something that has absolutely no chance of working.
Sounds like a good idea to me, nothing ventured nothing gained. I don't think you'll hurt your chances come fall. The only thing is animals don't react the same way in the spring as they do in the fall. What looks like a good lure-set combination in the spring might not be a good fall set and vise versa. Also animal travel patterns change a lot at different times of the year. You can have the best lure-set combination there is but if your location is off you won't catch your target animal.
