Dispersing Coyote Bait… With Tannerite!

Okay, this may not be the most ground-shaking, trapping innovation, but I’d say it’s worth a look – even if just for fun.

A while ago a video was posted to this channel, testing bullet penetration on some frozen turkeys I had using a Ruger No. 1 chambered for .45-120 (link below). The plan was to use the turkeys for coyote bait after. So, next, I had to figure out a way to get those frozen turkeys broken into tiny enough chunks for use as bait.

The method I chose was to blow one up using my Ruger No. 1 chambered for .243 and Tannerite. The results were amazing!

This achieved exactly what I was after – spreading little, thumb-size pieces all over a large area. This will force coyotes to work the bush hard near where I’ve placed snares (instead of putting a turkey out in its whole state).

Hope you enjoy the video, whether you agree with the method or not. Cheers!
