We will put it on a spike by the fence as a warning to other coyotes.... :twisted:

Just Kidding, Just Kidding....

Toss it in the woods, nothing lasts long. Too many scavangers. If we shoot a lot, and the numbers build up, we can use the bucket on the tractor to dig a nice hole.

I generally just leave them lay, sometimes they will eat their own. But as Clint Eastwood said"worms got to eat", that and the buzzards.

We would, but we cut and bale that pasture for hay. The bones would be all crunchy and stuff and the cow would give us stink eye. :P

Well in that case, I'd just drag 'em to the edge of the field then.

The coyote call came today. Have to check the sights on the rifle we decide to use, then we will get to it. I'll keep you posted. I think I can snipe them from a hide off a rest. Miss T can certainly do a number on the population if they get called in.

Don't shoot the messenger here (me), but the studies show that if you do shoot them enough - the females will have more pups and earlier in order to make up the gap. A new Alpha that is more aggressive may take over the area etc. National Deer Association (NDA, formerly QDMA) has a number of summarized studies. Florida Fish/Wildlife Conservation Committee state that shooting them does little and could make it worse. Georgia's current 10-yr. Deer Management Plan states that coyote control was considered in the plan, but not recommended because there was no evidence that trying to shoot your way out of the problem would work.

Now if you just like shooting varment - well that's a different reason.

We tried asking them NOT to steal the chickens.
They ignored us. ;)

If we only shoot the female that has been raiding the coop area, I'm good.
The others have been eating squirrels, bunnies, etc. We are good with that.

The biggest issue with hunting ‘yotes is that they adjust their breeding to pack pressure. When there is no pressure, they breed slowly. When you start shooting them, they breed like rabbits. My male Weimaraner was alerting on something in the lower field tonight, and momma thought it might be a cougar, so I loaded the .44 Carbine and went for a stroll. I found a lone coyote pup sound asleep on my pile of grass clippings. I walked up to 20 yards before he woke up an bolted into the brambles. We don’t have chickens out, so I gave him a pass. Some scumbag bought the property across the road from us and cut down every green thing on the place and turned it into a lunar landscape. All the deer, rabbits, ‘yotes etc have been displaced so I’m giving them all a bit of time to find a new home.

The coyote pup, Dexter having a sit down with a rabbit, and our new Weimaraner pup:
