Hello,

I like the outdoors very much. I like to fish, outdoors junkie when I can get the time. I was wondering has anybody did any coyote hunting? I would like to try this one day, the only problem I don't have any land to hunt on and I live in Louisville, KY the city. So if anyone that lives near Louisville, KY and hunts coyotes email me and would love to try this.

As an invasive exotic species, I would not say I love to destroy this species, but the next time a pack are out side my window at Two in the morning, I suspect there will be a few of them that will pass on due to acute lead poisoning. The fish in my pond will take care of the remains. Case closed.

As hunters, we don't seek and destroy.

And as far as exotic, going back to the Lewis and Clark Trail {expedition}
Coyotes and Bobcats were a first discoverd species I believe.

I think I may have also read yotes and dogs wound up being table fare, except for Clark.

Did it years ago up in Nebraska,, use to get 60 bucks a hide for them. Pretty good money and farmers would always give you permission to hunt them.

We've tried countless times to go out there and kill a few but they are really smart. Within the past 2 years DNR has brought in whats called a red timberwolf
They are just as bad or not worse than coyotes. A lot bigger also. What could they have thinking do this crap.:dizzy:

I live in e-town just south of louisville and hunt yotes quite often and 90 percent of farmers are more than accepting of the offer to hunt their coyotes! We will have to wait until deer season passes though, people tend to frown on ya encroaching on their deer woods...... Its is alot of fun and really challenging most of the time, they very seldom stop so you haveta hit them on the run more times than not.. pm me your email and e ca n work somethin out.

We run dogs here too, but not for coyotes people love running deer drives here. Cant say I have participated in it. Im a traditional hunter I'll sit in stand hours and hours on end.

Nothing like lambing season and getting to shoot coyotes.

Back when we were teens in South CA, where our family friend would lamb his sheep, even in a corral area, the coyotes would sneak in and get a new born lamb. So we were welcomed any time to reduce the local population.

Problem is, new corral doesn't exist, sheep are gone, and houses now stand where once was wild grass land and pasture.

Nothing real fancy, just a little .22 and iron sights. Oh, CA F&G also frowns on this practice now. Also, dumb people leave their dog and cat food outside and they wonder why their small puppies and cats are getting eaten or why their small child is bitten while walking a nature trail....go figure.

I have been in on a few night hunts for them due to them messing with peoples farms. The M1a was great for this. Im not a big fan of killing things but having seen a pack of them gang up on young farm animals IMO that was alot worse.


The AR and AK/SKS didn't do a half bad of a job either. lol

I will hunt for food, but not for the pleasure of just killing something.

Coyotes and foxes in many places are becoming nuisances, similar to feral hogs.

I normally subscribe to your philosophy as well, but when skunks are spraying my dogs; coons are tearing everything up and in my bird feeders; same with squirrels; I will shoot to reduce the population.

To get Coyote you need a Game Call. I have even tied a live Chicken out as Bait. Calling them in with a Caller is a real art form. So I use a electronic caller with a remote. Sitting heavy cover I set up my caller and bait at least 50 yards a way. I like to use a 22 mag or a 223 for coyote.

That depends where one resides. Im in New England and these aint ya daddys yotes. They are up to 28% Canadian timberwolf . Unlike the western coyote who is usually found wandering alone , these critters hunt in packs and are devastating to young deer.

Back when I was in high school and still hunted, we did some coyote hunting.

We mainly did it because the population is bad in the area I grew up, but it was something to do in the late winter when all the other hunting seasons were done.

What we did was to use our CB's and get a hold of other hunters in the area. We would then drive around and look for them in the snow covered fields.

As soon as one was spotted, you would holler at someone else on the CB and get them in on it. Basically trying to surround the coyotes.

You would then drive into the open fields, get within range, and hop out and take a shot.

Pretty red-neck, but it's what we did.

I can remember were I was Reading or the name of a Mixed breed of Coyote and Timber wolf. But the bottom line was they were a real problem and mostly in Canada and New England.

My neighbor is an aging farmer. I will shoot em in his cow pens but that's about ut. I don't have a problem with guys who hunt them at all but I don't eat them, their hides aren't worth much any more and I don't feel like staying up all night waiting.

Now I stick to hunting animals that taste good, look good stuffed or have valuable pelts.
