I've seen the results of Rock salt spilled in the woods.

I don't believe that it wouuld, but will the salt spook a fox or coyote from a set if there is too much? They don't shy away from salt blocks in the pasture.

I try to stay clean and realaize that no matter what, I am leaving sent at the set. But none of the sets I used salt on connected last year.

After reading my post, I am wodering if my salt was contaminated with something else.

But would too much non-contaminated salt spook an animal?

I don't think too much salt will spook a coyote, but it will sure draw the deer.

I have said time and time again, you won't find salt of any kind anywhere near or in my sets.
We simply have too many deer in the areas I trap.
