    I have about 400 hundred acres in Grayson County, We were just up their this past weekend and it seems that the coyotes are worst than in years past. We like to deer hunt and dont want the coyotes to kill fawns or turkeys off the land. Just about every still hunt on stand we were seeing them and hearing them all night long running through the bottoms. I have herd different ways to kill them, but wanting to know what you guys thought was the best way???

    get someone who is a hard core coyote hunter to put some serious pressure on them. then combine that with a trapper.

    you will never "get rid" of coyotes - but you will make your farm a bad place for them to live and they will figure that out quickly.

    I have heard that if you hang a couple of coyote carcuses around the property, they will see it as a sign of danger, and not return. After all if cusin bubba got shot and uncle bob got trapped and killed why would i want to be there.

    Trapping is the best way. But you'll never get rid of them completely without fencing that they can't get through.

    What is the best way to trap them? It might be easier to get a trapper out their and do it for me, You typically dont have to pay for a trappy correct? Does any one know of a trapper in the grayson county area?

    Don't mean to make light of your problem, but I agree with the last two posts. If you could leak the info into the coyote community that ww was coming, you could probably get rid of at least some of them. The smart ones anyway!

    Unless you are going to fence the entire property, you will not get rid of them. As long as there is food, they will come. Trapping will thin them out, but that is only a temporary solution.

    I volunteer to hunt them down and kill as many as I see.
     
  14. I find that 150 grain soft point does a good job. There are several guys on here that are trappers and yote hunters who you might look up.

    Sorta related....but I read an article in Predator Extreme awhile back talking about bounties on yotes. They discussed many states such as Colorado had incoporated a bounty on yotes many years ago. People trapped...hunted..poisoned.....done about everthing imaginable and over time the state paid out a bunch of money for their bounty. Ultimately they came to the realization...... you will never eliminate coyotes.

    My advice ...as already mentioned...trapping & hunting is your best bet to control populations on a specific piece of property. You will never get rid of them completly but you will find it will help.

    Also.... as much as I dislike yotes personally.....there is a usefull purpose to a yote on the food chain. Skunks...coons...feral cats... do a considerable amount of damage to nesting ..such as turkeys..ducks...quail & the like. Inturn the yote...is their primary predator. This is not to say yotes dont do their share of damage but they also prey on a lot of critters doing the same.

    On the flip-side of those statements..... theres a lot information being released from studies saying...yotes are doing more damage to deer populations than previously believed by biologist.

    So....... again... you wont eliminate them....but keeping their numbers in check would be beneficial.

    Snares set on fenceline crossovers, trails through grassfields, cedar thickets and artificially necked down sections of log roads will put a major dent in the resident population pretty quick. We've taken up to twenty off fairly small farms in a 1-2 week span in this manner. Usually the landowner will report far,far less yote activity after a season or two of the neck-tie application......

    Edit to add: I see 2-3 guys from Grayson county every year(I think 2brothers and their father) at the fur sale who really wear the coyotes out. I'm sure if you ask around you can find out who these cats are and they can hook you up.
