Loc: palmyra, new york
Scenario:

A patch of woods, swamp, ditch, brush, etc., that stretches about 3/4 mile long. Crop fields along the entire area, BUT owned by two different farmers. So-- one farmer owns half and the other farmer owns the other half. Tractor lane on both farms leads to thick area and the lanes are about a half mile apart. I have permission on both farms. Since coyotes are such distance travelers, would you experts drive down BOTH lanes and put sets in? Or just one lane--figuring that any coyote that is traveling the thick area edge will travel the entire edge, covering both farms. The difference to me, is a few traps and about a half hour of my time.

I would trap both sides if there was sign on both.The coyotes in my area do not travel the same trails every night and you might hit on one property and not the other.
