Woven wire fences are killer coyote sets. Walk the fence line until you find a low spot where critters can crawl under the wire. There will be a definite trail there because every thing is using it. Simply hang the snare from the bottom wire on the fence right in the trail. Be prepared to catch any thing like cats and dogs who wander far afield.Thats why leg traps work better that doesnt kill some ones pet. Nothing like rasseling an old tom cat or some ones spoiled feisty dog. I throw my hunting coat over them and then the fight is on.

Sometimes a choke point is a good set too

 

U really just got a lot of trial and error before u make consistent catches hell it took me 8 seasons before I started getting consistent catches
