    Actually It should be closer to 100%

    Doing some pondering of this myself. One guy here killed 38 yotes off 700 acres... They had to be filling back in quickly for that to take place IMO.

    I understand the research, and that killing 1 or 3 or 5 doesn't help anything. But getting 50 off of 2 farms in 1 season, has to start impacting even the transient population.

    When you are talking about transients operating on scales larger than counties and being replaced each year by production it wont. Yes. 2-1=2, but 50,000-50 isnt really an issue. Think duck parks. Those places kill 200-300 birds a day at times, yet the population at the park never moves, at least not noticeably...

    50 off 2 farms here and 38 off another and 60 off a handful more and 40 elsewhere. Next thing you know you have killed 1/2 or more of the yotes and cars, parvo, distemper mange and domestic dogs kill another 10 to 20% and you are Controlling yotes.

    I think its still on the rails... Hopefully the OP will chime in and tell us what he thinks. It appears he has had similar luck in these same fields over and over...

    If hawk has his way it will be. Hopefully he caught something from eating all them yotes he killed during deer season this year . He killed a bunch ya know. I'm sure his barns bigger than your barn. :rofl:

    If it is I bet all that money he got from selling the bunches of coyotes he shot "because it's fun" will fall out. Lol

    Given this post and statement it sounds like they catch about the same amount over and over... Which is indicative of the habitat being refilled fairly quickly.

    Some people seem dense enough to not understand that shooting the coyote and leaving it is a lot different than posting a running tab of how many have been killed and then taking a picture of the dead rotting pile of wasted carcasses and posting it online to brag... The general public has FAR LESS problem with what TIMO did than what I just described. TIMO is helping the cause, not hurting it.

    Dear God. There's some irresponsible maniac bragging about shootin Coyote's and leaving them lay without eating them and selling the fur and utilizing the scat and innards to fertilize veggies. Whoa is me. This is madness. He must be a maniac trying to get our hunting heritage stripped from us. Wafm. Lol

    Sorry Timo. I won't engage the moron in your thread anymore.

    Congrats again on a great season.

    Good grief, Hawk and Henry we've heard this stuff 4000 times in 40 different threads. Everyone knows how you both think about this. Unless, your just post padding and trying to be annoying, let it go!!!!!

    Reading back you will notice that meller and I were having a decent conversation about year to year success on the same properties with coyotes. Henry couldnt help but try to start an argument by saying something ridiculous...

    I am very interested to hear from @Timo about year to year coyote trapping success on the same property

    Hawk, I've a location that gave up 12 coyotes the first year and 17 the next. This location isn't acres, it's feet. I always set 3 traps within 20 feet of each other at this location and triples haven't been uncommon.
    Coyotes have no predators other than man in Mo so it's much easier for them to hold their own. Also coyotes are capable of moving greater distances than most of our furbearers. I believe that most of our coyotes are transients also.

    Good info. Id expect for a good area to produce year after year with transients constantly replacing residents and other transients constantly filtering thru the same travel corridors based on the research Ive read.
