Its like how many licks to the center of a toosie pop. A lot, I'd say around 50. Depends how tight-n-deep you make your trap beds. They really work great in the snow. I actually use the snow for my bed. I pack the snow around my set with a small shovel or use my broom to pat it down. About 2-3 feet in front of the set where the trap will be set. I make it firm enough a coyote can walk on without leaving a track.(hold his weight) Make the set as I usually would. (Post sets are how I use this set.) Make a small depression for the trap, pour in the buckwheat push (bed) the trap into the snow(buckwheat) Once bedded I cover with buckwheat. If its below 25 I cover again with snow. But if the sun is out and you cover with snow it will just melt. And a crust will form on buckwheat hulls. just never know how thick it will be. Easy to remove though, comes off like a buckwheat pancake. I usually have 1/4 - 1/2 inch covering over the top of my traps. This set has worked very well for me. Traps where on drags. Works great when the snow is getting deeper and you don't want to dig 3 feet down to bed your trap. But when it starts warming up thats another story. I use them in regular sets too with great success.
