    Im getting ready to do a Yote soon and was pondering the idea of making the Habitat base with Yote tracks and maby some Turkey tracks in it. I have got a grip on how i would like to make the tracks, probably make a cast with plaster paris in the field and transfer/stamp it in the habitat. Id love to see some pics because i dont think i have ever seen any posted on here. In my opinion i think it wouuld look more natural with tracks stamped in it, as it is in the wild. Im thinking ill have to coat the stamp with something so as the habitat wont stick to bad to it. Id love suggestions, ideas, tips, and pics!!! please!!!!!!!! what ya got????????? ::) ::)

    I have done it but by making amold & cast of a real foot. Your way would work if you could find tracks deep enough to geta complete cast.

    Critter...you know trapper supply houses sell casts of coyote feet mounted on a stick. The theory is that making tracks in the dirt at a set puts the coyotes at ease. I have one knocking around here somewhere.

    We just put a base together ,
    I corn field scene. I had a post on here about casting tracks. I got my tracks casted and they worked PERFECT. I even kept one of my turkey legs from this year and posed it down flat and added a few turkey tracks in it as well. ;D
