    Wish you were closer.

    BTW, deer rifles will take down a yote just fine. If that is all you have, then use them.

    If the landowners are loosing calves,then I'd say he has more of a wild dog problem than a coyote one.Coyotes rarely take healthy calves and momma cow does a good job keeping them away.Most of the time that coyotes are seen around calving areas,they are after the afterbirth.They will also consume the calves waste as it contains undigested milk.Wild dogs are usually the culprits in cattle depredatation.If you can find the dead calves before they are consumed,you will notice they are bit all over.There are several trappers in that area that would probably take care of your problem(trappers will catch way more than hunting will)although with the low to no market for them,they may charge a fee.If you go to trapboard.com and ask,I'm sure you'll get a response.

    check around and see if you have any local hound hunters they can really work coyotes over if they can get in there and it works out

    SNA2STL just got a new FoxPro caller. We might make a weekend out of it as it's about a 4 hour drive for us, so we'd probably want to go for more than one day.

    X2 :cheers:

    you'll get 1-2 good hunts with a caller, if your lucky you'll get 3 good hunts. after that they get smart quick and you'll never get one called up. a good trapper will be able to do more damage to the packs then a hunter (it is fun to hunt them though so try it and hope for success :cheers: )
    btw I'd drive around the neighbors and look for big agressive dogs that run loose and you might find your culprits, I've trapped 2 places where they said yotes where killing calves and both times I caught a few yotes but seen extra large dog tracks and found out the nieghbors had big dogs that ran loose at night. I know I told the farmer at one place so he stayed up all night and took care of 2 large problems that he caught chasing cows.

    In order to significantly impact the population of coyotes in an area requires you remove 70% of that population for five consecutive years. Failure to do so will likely result in even more coyotes as they surge to adjust their recruitment rates to fill the voids within their home ranges. Coyotes have the ability to adjust their birth rates to accommodate the available food sources and habitat or to make up for losses or an over population within their habitat given the food available to them. Recreational hunting does little to impact coyote populations overall and may in fact cause more harm than good in the long run. A skilled trapper that stays with it in a core area can be helpful in trimming the coyote populations. Truly amazing animals…

    I think we go out for a weekend, shoot as many as we can and then let the trappers take over after that.
