    They're numbers need to be reduced. I'm just doing my part.
    No offense, or presumption meant. Perhaps I over exagerated the point that it isn't hard to find deer lately. And in many places they do as much or more damage than coyotes do. Unfortunately, not enough of them manage to cross the roads when traffic is passing by, so we can't count on that to help control them.

    Maybe if coyotes, and whatever other natural controls of the deer population are allowed to do so, and more civic minded folks like yourself, "do their part", to control the coyotes, everything will be back in balance, again someday.:notworthy:

    Marv,
    Don't ya think that's a little presumptive that hunters go out and "flock shoot" deer. I've never done anything of the like and don't know anyone that does. The deer I take are only mature deer that have already passed on their genes for another generation. Most hunters I know are the same as me in this respect.

    As for the coyotes, In my particular region they're numbers have gotten way out of hand. To the point that they are moving into towns and cities where they snack on cute, cuddly fi-fi dogs and cats. They're numbers need to be reduced. I'm just doing my part.

    the coyotes really begin yipping and howling. I've noticed that there are a lot fewer fawns this year than years past. Don't know if that is because of coyotes or the drought or both.
    That might be a GOOD thing, don't you think?

    If the coyotes, or something else helps control the deer population, hunters will actually need to scout and "hunt" for their deer, rather than just go out and flock shoot them.

    Late last season I watched 3 coyotes attempting to cut a new born calf away from it's mother. I ended their shananigans by shooting one of them. While the other two where looking around trying figure out what just happened, I got another. The third high tailed it before he got his. This season (since 11/01) I've shot 3 coyotes. There are still more than a few around. I have a railroad that runs past my lease and when an train passes with it's horn blowing the coyotes really begin yipping and howling. I've noticed that there are a lot fewer fawns this year than years past. Don't know if that is because of coyotes or the drought or both.

    They will eat your dog.
    I did hear a gunshot,
    so maybe someone over there was trying to thin them out.
    Gunshots around here are normal for this time of year.

    Man, I thought you were talking about Flint, Michigan for a minute there. Not coyotes though.

    I hadn't seen any deer the few times in the woods. Mentioned that to a neighboring farmer and he said he'd been hearing coyotes in the area. When I checked my trail camera - no deer, just these. Didn't realize coyotes could/would run deer out of an area, but it sure looks like that's what happened.

    Ks. firearms season opens on Wednesday.

    JerzeyJoe,
    Congrats to your son on his buck. We do jalepeno & cheese smoked sausage that's out of this world. Also, a sage and red pepper breakfast (patty) sausage. I also make carne guisada (meat and gravy), chili and grilled steaks wrapped in bacon. Good eats.
