It's all part of the cycle of life. If you believe in God then that is how God created it. We should be respectful of life. How can you respect God and then fault God for what was created? People keep wiping out species and then wonder why others get out of control and then they want to wipe out that species and create some other problem. Sounds like great planning to me! I am sure there are other solutions and since hunters know nature it seems like hunters are the ideal people to come up with the best ways to maintain a reasonable balance through various means. Anger and slaughtering is not the answer.

I know someone won't agree with this idea,but in the New Testament book Revelation it talks about the animals will turn on us.There is already a increase of other animal attacks,so this could explain it.
Really could pictures.

Indian legend believes the coyote will be the last remaining breathing creature on earth. Possibly so,they're ultimate survivors. I believe if there's nuclear holocaust,only the coyote, Keith Richards and the cockroach will be the only survivors.When I'm deer or elk hunting during archery season I NEVER pass up an opportunity to take one out.

Bo;

I fully agree with you. It's a lot like the revenuers way back when that chased a lot of nice folk into the hills. After a while the gov'met people learned their lesson and stayed out of the hills.

I'm not sure how the legalisation of booze would affect the yotes, but I'll drink to a good day of shooting anytime.

Sisu, Don't worry about wiping them out. Every known means short of nuclear bombs has been used in the West over the years and the coyote remains. Shooting at every one seen does make them keep their distance however.

I agree that a lot of this is due to a lack of fear of humans, and that they ought to be hunted, though not eradicated; their value as a species shouldn't be measured solely on how they impact our hobbies. In many places they've simply filled the void left by the eradication of wolves. In others, we've encroached on their territory with never-ending development and sprawl. We need to hunt them and restore their natural fear of humans, but I'd hate to get to the point where I can't hear them howling at night from my bivy tent (as long as my Colt .22 is loaded).

Coyotes are a real problem here is the Adirondacks of NY. They run deer behind my house almost every night. Winter is brutal on the deer and the coyotes just run them to death. A personal friend shot what he thought was a huge coyote over bait. He had it tested with DEC and found that it was 99.9 % timber wolf. shot 50 miles north of the state capital of Albany. I think coyote season should be open all year. Our deer herd is struggling right now. Hunter success is down. It's not fun hunting weekend after weekend and sometimes not seeing even one deer.

I agree completely with Bo. The problem is that there are enough crappy yote hunters out there that they get away, and they think they always will be able to outsmart us.

After reading all of the reported attacks on humans, dogs, cats, horses, etc. and then the ones that don't go reported, I can't see how anyone could defend the coyote. It's one thing to be part of the ecosystem but it's another to be a nuisance that is out of control. If you still have doubts then read the latest study on coyotes and fawn mortality rate that was conducted at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina by John Kilgo and staff. The numbers of deer fawns that are killed (70%) due to coyotes is a staggering amount and the deer population that was on the rise until 2000 has decreased by 36% statewide. These studies are coming in from Alabama, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, etc. Folks if you enjoy hunting as I do and want to protect your investment then you will take action before its too late! 2.25 - 2.5" styrofoam balls soaked in bacon grease, snares, calling and baiting, etc. work great but must be sustained because if you don't remove at least 60-70% of the population then it will be an uphill battle.

The thing that I think is shocking me reading this is the incidents where it's labs with equal numbers and in one case 2 labs to 1 coyote with the coyote killing a dog. I never expected my beagle and basset would have a chance if outnumbered, but really thought a lab would hand a song dog his head in a one on one.

From my standpoint, if coyotes are so familiar with people that they are not afraid of them, it is time to start killing them until they are. Significant hunting stress on any animal will give them all a healthy fear of man. They need to be afraid of man. If they are afraid of man, they won't venture close enough to attack him.
In the meantime, it should provide some sporting enjoyment for those who go afield to hunt these things. Good hunting and good shooting.

Coyote attacks have been on the steady rise here in the Maritime provinces,so much so that the province of Nova Scotia has issued a shoot on sight bounty on yotes.The other Maritime provinces still require a varmit licence to harvest coyotes.
