Here, veteran trapper Glynn Riley tells the story of two methods of catching coyotes - running decoy dogs, and digging up dens. His tale reminds us of the great knowledge that these trappers had about the habits and behavior of coyotes, and the respect that they held for the animal as a worthy opponent. We are grateful to Diana Dwyer and the USDA/APHIS Wildlife Services Program, and its Trapping Oral History Initiative, for kindly sharing the source recordings for this excerpt.
