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.

They are just as bad or not worse than coyotes. A lot bigger also. What could they have thinking do this crap.
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.

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.
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.
