Bears eat worms and grubs ..
Coyotes eat mice and other small rodents ...
I watched a mother fox kill a young whitetail deer faun ...
We need to be careful to not upset natures balance ..
We have turkeys again in Ontario (my grand father ate and fed his family on all the original ones )

As adamant as I am about controlling the coyote population and doing my part to preserve deer hunting for my children, it wouldn't be justified to end on the previous note. You can never shoot enough coyotes on your property to make a significant long-term impact, you can trap but it's time consuming and costly, and poison is illegal and has an impact on other critters. So, how do you do it? 2.25"-2.5" compressed styrofoam balls soaked in bacon grease or thick grease that binds to the ball and into the pores. Spread these out on your property 2-3 at each location. I place 6-8 per 50 acres every 2-3 months (heavy in March - July and Dec). The coyotes are scavengers and swallow them whole. All other animals chew the styrofoam - you can figure out the rest. It works.... I have game pics where the yotes swallow them whole and I am seeing a direct translation of more deer activity on my property and zero yote tracks or scat.

I am amazed at the amount of self-proclaimed wildlife experts on here. Some say there's no problem, some say it's "mother natures" way of balance and harmony. Coyotes are a plague on the number one sporting source of income in the south east and moving quickly across all states. Who says that? John Kilgo, Wildlife Biologist and head of a recent Savannah River Site study over the course of 4 years. 73% of all fawns were killed within the first month of birth by the influx of coyotes. The studies were confirmed in Alabama in separate studies. The deer population and harvest has decreased by 36% since 1996. But don't let facts get in the way of a good debate....

RICHIBUCTO, NEW BRUNSWICK: ANOTHER COYOTE ATTACK! Marie Simon was out walking with her dog when she was stalked and attacked by a single large coyote. The woman bravely fought back and was able to finally beat off the bush wolf's savage attack, escaping with cuts and bruises. The lesson from this February, 2010 attack is: DON'T TEMP FATE BY ALLOWING YOURSELF OR A LOVED ONE TO BECOME THE NEXT VICTIM OF PREDATORS IN THE WILD. BE FOREWARNED AND APPROPRIATELY PREPARED ALWAYS!

Let me start by saying I wish people would stop using the Bible to fight political battles about hunting. The vast majority of the time, the people who opose hunting are not at all familiar with the truth of God's word. I am not saying that the Bible is not relevant on any topic however, I often see hunters using emotionally charged responses from invalid context or misquotes. Please stop using a spiritual weapon in secular arguments. As to the subject of coyote hunting, the animals themselves are a formidable opponent in the field and if they aren't where you are located, then I'm sure hunting doesn't pose a threat to them. We're not going to to win over the extremists who believe that we should be eating ground hogs, prairie dogs, and coyotes if we kill them. You're entitled to your opinion and that is what makes this country great. However, I hope you don't think that the gov't should make hunting them illegal. I fear that by the time my son reaches adulthood, there may not be that many legal hunting & fishing opportunities left. And for all you "fair chase or nothing" advocates, I hope your hunting wild cattle for your burgers and using barbless hooks on your artificials to catch your tilapia.

And for those of you who just think it's terrible or inappropriate for a farmer or hunter to trap or shoot coyotes, all you need to do is watch a deer run by twice with a coyote in close pursuit - the deer's hamstrings and tendon's were literally hanging out of the deer's hind quarters, and I've seen unmanaged or wild dogs harrassing deer in the same manner. Some folks think deer can run and run, but they can't, the dogs will run them down and tear out their hind quarters until they wear them down in a miserable death. Coyotes and wild dogs do what they do, and likewise, there is nothing wrong with managing the Coyote population using the most effective means to weed them out, regardless of whether it meets your pre-conceived story book notions.

I live on a dead-end gravel road near Linville Virginia. My neighbor farms. One night, 11 of his sheep were killed by coyotes. They didn't kill only out of necessity and they didn't eat only what they killed. The game management school boy types an say whatever they like, but I am here to tell you that Coyotes do occasionally go on a killing spree, and they aren't always the noble creatures that only kill what they must and only attack when sick and all of that crap. Still not as bad as what's happening in Southern Ohio though - in the Wildlife Management area, the game management idiots, in re-introducing rattlesnakes, and no, that's not a bogus story, they really are that stupid.

I appreciate everyones interest ,coments and dislikes with the topic..But here where I live in the State of Maine we have a serious problem with coyotes at this point.I do beleive in nature doing what it does best, But i also beleive in balance and the only way to have balance here in maine is to provide some incentive in controlling the balance between coyote's and the deer herd.i also understand here that the deer herd is down because of harsh winters but as a avide deer hunter it just drives me nuts to see a deer track and a yote track on it running it to death when the deer heard is at its smallest it has ever been.I beleive the state of maine is more for the money then it is for managing the deer herd or any other wildlife. I am hoping a biologist or someone from the state reads this and maybe can reply with a sensible explanantion on why something hasn't been done instead of always passing the buck. This has been a topic in the state for years now on maintaining wintering areas and controlling the coyote problem. So to all you felow hunters please take charge and dont wait for the state to start a program because if its anything like Maine it won't happen and it will just be political bull for years.

I like the comments I don't think enough people kill coyotes when they see them deer hunting. Coyotes are survivors and they are everywhere. We were running beagles this summer and they came running in to come get them, they saw us and bolted, figures the day I didn't take my 22 mag. Anyway this year there seems to be a lot of does with no fawns, wonder why? Coyotes? I killed one two years ago opening morning. I think the DNR brought them here to control the deer population, instead of lowering the price of doe tags, f-ers. But there are too many kill them if you can, cool photos.

For those of you who have a problem with this, come on really? this is a coyote doing what coyotes do. this is nature in action big deal. I myself hunt coyotes and it is a fun and exciting sport. And for those of you saying that has to be the biggest coyote you ever saw for that to be a whole fawn in your mouth, you should see the coyotes here in the east they are huge. The PA Game Comission speculates they are crossbred somehow with wolves making them much larger than yotes in arizona or other western states. My uncle from arizona once saw one of our eastern coyotes on a visit and told me I was crazy there was no way that was a coyote. The yotes in PA get to be about the size of a lab or coon hound some bigger.

The little wolf pupulation has exploded because there are too many deer; especially here in Ohio. One cure would be to kill more deer. Here is my proposal: Each OH deer hunter should be licensed to kill two deer. They would be required to kill a doe first and upon inspection and tag registration, a second "Bucks Only" permit would be issued. This would bring down the doe numbers, reduce the spring fawn drop and give each successful hunter a "Bucks Only" shot. Deer starvation, as currently happening in OH, would end, little wolf pouplation would drop, we would have larger deer, bucks would become larger and horn size would improve.

All animal species need to be preserved, including coyotes, an extinct species isn't a species at all. Overpopulations of coyotes should be reduce by managed hunting, were there are almost no coyotes, they should be restored to a reasonable number of individuals. Keep hunting guys, not too much though, ok?

Consider what happened to the caspian tiger. The worlds largest, strongest and most beautiful cat was hunting to extinction because a few people were killed by them. Opinions like yours hurt the environment and the overall view of hunters. Every living thing is good, except bugs, because they are part of the natural oder of the world. We, as hunters, need to protect coyotes, and crop their numbers down to a manageable size.

bowtech777, in response to your earlier comment on the top of the page, i must say, you are dead wrong. Every type of animal species is intricately wound with other species survival, without coyotes the balance of nature will have been upset. Coyotes are an integral part of nature. The world will be a less beautiful and stunning place without them.

It was definately the most coyote activity I'd ever captured. In fact, I've never seen one on my property except on camera. This was definately the best sequence of activity of any type, that I've ever caught on "film". When I first viewed the photos I was a bit shocked/saddened/amazed. While a bit controversial apparently...coyotes are killers by nature and nature is pretty magnificent in its' design.

sruddek- I can assure you there's no bait, as my cam took the pictures. Pretty interesting reading the posts. While there is no "kill shot", I think any other conclusion is just naive. My conclusion is that the fawn was lying off to the left in a thicket...and the doe just wouldn't go very far away. When she finally went and picked it up, doom followed.

Whats the matter guys and gals, It's the way of wildlife, deal with it.
Yes we do have problems with coyotes in parts of the U.S., but we also have problems with to many whitetails in the U.S. also..
So what is the problem?
As long as we let the uneducated people that know nothing about wildlife (I.E.PETA) go around and try to protect every furry thing on earth we will continue haveing problems with too many coyotes and to many whitetails or deer in general.
In Oregon you can't hunt cougers or bear with dogs anymore,,now we have bears going into peoples homes, cougers going into cities killing Fluffy the poodle,,and most of all our fawn and elk calf crops getting killed off due too many protected preditors.
So in order to deal with it we need to deal with and educate the furrything lovers and show them the truth behind what makes good wildlife management and get the balance back.
I know some of you will agree with me and some won't,,,,so be it..
Thank you

Rezhunter, are you a hunter? well if you are then you know as good as I do that someone that has no ethics on hunting is going to join outdoor life. For every hunter that poaches for fun there is 20,000 hunters who do it for food. Not only for food but tradition, its a way of life, come on when hunting comes around the first week its open there is not a single store in this town other than the sports center that are open. If your a non hunter then you need to understand that same thing that I just explained. We were given dominion over gods creatures, he placed them there for us to eat... Yes they are beautiful to look at and very gracious animals, but I dont think that they serve another purpose, other than to feed gods children, even in the bible is states that give a man a fish he can eat for a day, Teach a man how to fish he can eat for a lifetime. And if you dont believe that then I guess spiritually your in trouble.

I have mixed feelings on this topic, Yeah there is a coyote in the pictures, but is there a photo of the kill? maybe he was just in the right spot at the right time and the little fawn broke a leg, or it was attacked by a larger animal. I dont know, but as far as exterminating them I dont think we should and yes I am a hunter as well, but I dont hesitate to shoot one when I see it either, meaning i'm in a farming community of 12,000 people, coyotes ar a nuicance in this part of MT and they are PLENIFUL within a 6 acre parcel of school trust land I was able to spot 17 coyotes, and I did take one to help thin out the population.

We as hunters have a responisibilty to maintain the safety and security of animals, and such nuicances like coyotes or even gophers, their population needs to be taken down in MT, i'm sure in other states as well. They destroy my crops and they destroy winter wheat or any other thing that I grow.

The PA DNR used a trail cam at a coyote den for 30 days, 27 different fawn were draged into the den. Get off your lazy butts and hunt coyotes. Here in Ohio we hunt every Sunday from New Years to the start of turkey season in April. We use dogs to run them, running Walkers and Plotz. One guy has a pack of beagles that he uses. On one day we got 6 off of one 6 mile long ridge and didn't get shots at several others. 12 Ga. full choke #4 buck does the job.

Looking at repeated frames of deer then coyote, then deer,...makes me wonder how much of this situation is due to feeding wildlife for great camera shots. I wouldn't think a mother and her fawn would frequent that area so much (and so persistently despite the coyotes presence) if it weren't for a good reason (ie dinner). I agree with the natural order of things, but when we bait for those perfect pics, we disrupt that. This looks like evidence to that arguement.

Hmmmmmm, guess what, they are doing what is only natural. I am a wildlife management student and coyotes usually only do that under extreme conditions, they would rather scavenge than hunt. and most of the times, it is not coyotes that are the cause of falling populations it is us humans, we over hunt and encroach on territory, and we pollute. Oh and I forgot, nature is also a large culprit, don't blame coyotes first, think about what else there is out there. In my home town we consistently have low quail populations and people usually like to blame the coyotes, but its ninety percent of the time that we are in a very dry area, and quail need nice green grass to feed off of and for shelter, its not the coyotes hurting them, its plain old nature.

The state wildlife agencies need to put a small tax on license that would help pay to put a bounty on these rotten worthless Yotes.

If their was a bounty of say a couple of bucks a piece for them, you would have more people out hunting them.

The occasional kill by a hunter while deer hunting is NOT gonna do the trick to get these things under control.

Hunters need some incentive to kill a worthless animal like these yotes.

I am glad the Coyote still knows how to hunt natural pray, unlike some of our other larger mammals, Such as Bears...

I do not see anything wrong with these photo's. I am a Hunter and a Professional Fishing Guide and I beleive that peditores are very important to maintaining Healthy populations of prey...

Good For the Coyote...

The PA DNR used a trail cam at a coyote den for 30 days, 27 different fawn were draged into the den. Get off your lazy butts and hunt coyotes. Here in Ohio we hunt every Sunday from New Years to the start of turkey season in April. We use dogs to run them, running Walkers and Plotz. One guy has a pack of beagles that he uses. On one day we got 6 off of one 6 mile long ridge and didn't get shots at several others. 12 Ga. full choke #4 buck does the job.

Whats the matter guys and gals, It's the way of wildlife, deal with it.
Yes we do have problems with coyotes in parts of the U.S., but we also have problems with to many whitetails in the U.S. also..
So what is the problem?
As long as we let the uneducated people that know nothing about wildlife (I.E.PETA) go around and try to protect every furry thing on earth we will continue haveing problems with too many coyotes and to many whitetails or deer in general.
In Oregon you can't hunt cougers or bear with dogs anymore,,now we have bears going into peoples homes, cougers going into cities killing Fluffy the poodle,,and most of all our fawn and elk calf crops getting killed off due too many protected preditors.
So in order to deal with it we need to deal with and educate the furrything lovers and show them the truth behind what makes good wildlife management and get the balance back.
I know some of you will agree with me and some won't,,,,so be it..
Thank you

For those of you who have a problem with this, come on really? this is a coyote doing what coyotes do. this is nature in action big deal. I myself hunt coyotes and it is a fun and exciting sport. And for those of you saying that has to be the biggest coyote you ever saw for that to be a whole fawn in your mouth, you should see the coyotes here in the east they are huge. The PA Game Comission speculates they are crossbred somehow with wolves making them much larger than yotes in arizona or other western states. My uncle from arizona once saw one of our eastern coyotes on a visit and told me I was crazy there was no way that was a coyote. The yotes in PA get to be about the size of a lab or coon hound some bigger.

Hmmmmmm, guess what, they are doing what is only natural. I am a wildlife management student and coyotes usually only do that under extreme conditions, they would rather scavenge than hunt. and most of the times, it is not coyotes that are the cause of falling populations it is us humans, we over hunt and encroach on territory, and we pollute. Oh and I forgot, nature is also a large culprit, don't blame coyotes first, think about what else there is out there. In my home town we consistently have low quail populations and people usually like to blame the coyotes, but its ninety percent of the time that we are in a very dry area, and quail need nice green grass to feed off of and for shelter, its not the coyotes hurting them, its plain old nature. I know I am going to get allot of down votes, but it is only because I am telling the truth! And those who vote me down know it!

I personally don't see an issue here. There are few places if any in the United States that don't have overpopulation problems with whitetails. The coyote is doing what nature does best, regulates itself. There also is a coyote overpopulation problem too across the states, but that has nothing to do with this article so why beat that mule?

And for those of you who just think it's terrible or inappropriate for a farmer or hunter to trap or shoot coyotes, all you need to do is watch a deer run by twice with a coyote in close pursuit - the deer's hamstrings and tendon's were literally hanging out of the deer's hind quarters, and I've seen unmanaged or wild dogs harrassing deer in the same manner. Some folks think deer can run and run, but they can't, the dogs will run them down and tear out their hind quarters until they wear them down in a miserable death. Coyotes and wild dogs do what they do, and likewise, there is nothing wrong with managing the Coyote population using the most effective means to weed them out, regardless of whether it meets your pre-conceived story book notions.

Let me start by saying I wish people would stop using the Bible to fight political battles about hunting. The vast majority of the time, the people who opose hunting are not at all familiar with the truth of God's word. I am not saying that the Bible is not relevant on any topic however, I often see hunters using emotionally charged responses from invalid context or misquotes. Please stop using a spiritual weapon in secular arguments. As to the subject of coyote hunting, the animals themselves are a formidable opponent in the field and if they aren't where you are located, then I'm sure hunting doesn't pose a threat to them. We're not going to to win over the extremists who believe that we should be eating ground hogs, prairie dogs, and coyotes if we kill them. You're entitled to your opinion and that is what makes this country great. However, I hope you don't think that the gov't should make hunting them illegal. I fear that by the time my son reaches adulthood, there may not be that many legal hunting & fishing opportunities left. And for all you "fair chase or nothing" advocates, I hope your hunting wild cattle for your burgers and using barbless hooks on your artificials to catch your tilapia.

Anyway this year there seems to be a lot of does with no fawns, wonder why? Coyotes? I killed one two years ago opening morning. I think the DNR brought them here to control the deer population, instead of lowering the price of doe tags, f-ers. But there are too many kill them if you can, cool photos.

I appreciate everyones interest ,coments and dislikes with the topic..But here where I live in the State of Maine we have a serious problem with coyotes at this point.I do beleive in nature doing what it does best, But i also beleive in balance and the only way to have balance here in maine is to provide some incentive in controlling the balance between coyote's and the deer herd.i also understand here that the deer herd is down because of harsh winters but as a avide deer hunter it just drives me nuts to see a deer track and a yote track on it running it to death when the deer heard is at its smallest it has ever been.I beleive the state of maine is more for the money then it is for managing the deer herd or any other wildlife. I am hoping a biologist or someone from the state reads this and maybe can reply with a sensible explanantion on why something hasn't been done instead of always passing the buck. This has been a topic in the state for years now on maintaining wintering areas and controlling the coyote problem. So to all you felow hunters please take charge and dont wait for the state to start a program because if its anything like Maine it won't happen and it will just be political bull for years.

I live on a dead-end gravel road near Linville Virginia. My neighbor farms. One night, 11 of his sheep were killed by coyotes. They didn't kill only out of necessity and they didn't eat only what they killed. The game management school boy types an say whatever they like, but I am here to tell you that Coyotes do occasionally go on a killing spree, and they aren't always the noble creatures that only kill what they must and only attack when sick and all of that crap. Still not as bad as what's happening in Southern Ohio though - in the Wildlife Management area, the game management idiots, in re-introducing rattlesnakes, and no, that's not a bogus story, they really are that stupid.

I am amazed at the amount of self-proclaimed wildlife experts on here. Some say there's no problem, some say it's "mother natures" way of balance and harmony. Coyotes are a plague on the number one sporting source of income in the south east and moving quickly across all states. Who says that? John Kilgo, Wildlife Biologist and head of a recent Savannah River Site study over the course of 4 years. 73% of all fawns were killed within the first month of birth by the influx of coyotes. The studies were confirmed in Alabama in separate studies. The deer population and harvest has decreased by 36% since 1996. But don't let facts get in the way of a good debate....

As adamant as I am about controlling the coyote population and doing my part to preserve deer hunting for my children, it wouldn't be justified to end on the previous note. You can never shoot enough coyotes on your property to make a significant long-term impact, you can trap but it's time consuming and costly, and poison is illegal and has an impact on other critters. So, how do you do it? 2.25"-2.5" compressed styrofoam balls soaked in bacon grease or thick grease that binds to the ball and into the pores. Spread these out on your property 2-3 at each location. I place 6-8 per 50 acres every 2-3 months (heavy in March - July and Dec). The coyotes are scavengers and swallow them whole. All other animals chew the styrofoam - you can figure out the rest. It works.... I have game pics where the yotes swallow them whole and I am seeing a direct translation of more deer activity on my property and zero yote tracks or scat.

I have mixed feelings on this topic, Yeah there is a coyote in the pictures, but is there a photo of the kill? maybe he was just in the right spot at the right time and the little fawn broke a leg, or it was attacked by a larger animal. I dont know, but as far as exterminating them I dont think we should and yes I am a hunter as well, but I dont hesitate to shoot one when I see it either, meaning i'm in a farming community of 12,000 people, coyotes ar a nuicance in this part of MT and they are PLENIFUL within a 6 acre parcel of school trust land I was able to spot 17 coyotes, and I did take one to help thin out the population.

We as hunters have a responisibilty to maintain the safety and security of animals, and such nuicances like coyotes or even gophers, their population needs to be taken down in MT, i'm sure in other states as well. They destroy my crops and they destroy winter wheat or any other thing that I grow.

For every hunter that poaches for fun there is 20,000 hunters who do it for food. Not only for food but tradition, its a way of life, come on when hunting comes around the first week its open there is not a single store in this town other than the sports center that are open. If your a non hunter then you need to understand that same thing that I just explained. We were given dominion over gods creatures, he placed them there for us to eat... Yes they are beautiful to look at and very gracious animals, but I dont think that they serve another purpose, other than to feed gods children, even in the bible is states that give a man a fish he can eat for a day, Teach a man how to fish he can eat for a lifetime.

The little wolf pupulation has exploded because there are too many deer; especially here in Ohio. One cure would be to kill more deer. Here is my proposal: Each OH deer hunter should be licensed to kill two deer. They would be required to kill a doe first and upon inspection and tag registration, a second "Bucks Only" permit would be issued. This would bring down the doe numbers, reduce the spring fawn drop and give each successful hunter a "Bucks Only" shot. Deer starvation, as currently happening in OH, would end, little wolf pouplation would drop, we would have larger deer, bucks would become larger and horn size would improve.

The state wildlife agencies need to put a small tax on license that would help pay to put a bounty on these rotten worthless Yotes.

If their was a bounty of say a couple of bucks a piece for them, you would have more people out hunting them.

The occasional kill by a hunter while deer hunting is NOT gonna do the trick to get these things under control.

Hunters need some incentive to kill a worthless animal like these yotes.

I say exterminate them completely.
