leonThis week on Trapping Across America we have an awesome interview with Leon Smith from Ky. A trapper since childhood, he made his dream of becoming a USDA trapper later in life. He trapped in the east and chased and hunted coyotes in CO for the government. I’ve know Leon for years, I respect a lot of trappers, but Leon is nothing but first class. You will enjoy this interview and learn somethings at the same time about the art of trapping. There is magic in the sack with a glimpse of a ringed tail sticking out of it. You will feel the power of this is a few moments. Sit back, kick your shoes off and enjoy the show.

Predator Control Group product of the week is BOSS DOG. BOSS DOG is killer on adult coyotes due to the musky call ingredients that keep kicking strong and loud regardless of warm or cold temps. It holds and thrives in the rain due to it’s base. BOSS DOG’S sales keep growing for a very simple reason, it works. Also a great red fox lure. You can find a ton of coyote lures that will catch pup coyotes, but why limit you coyote catch to the pups only. BOSS DOG was designed for adult coyotes and it gets a strong reaction from both pups and the old dogs. I do not market this lure as a call lure, but it is a four part call lure that plays on many different levels of the coyotes brain and biological drives.

I know that I could not perform my predator control contracts as well without BOSS DOG. It gives me an advantage over a lot of different lures I could use. I based the layout of this lure on some of the factors that Bill Nelson used in his lures and I’m glad I did. I will normally use GATOR BAIT, PRIMAL PASTE BAIT or FEDERALES BAIT with BOSS DOG down a deep dirt hole with a topping of small bird feathers or plucked wool. I will also use BOSS DOG on a lot of my flat sets due to its ability to get a coyote to spend extra time at my set.
