Out ran the bull and made it to my stand. Out pops a young buck meandering across my plot. I watch it and enjoy the good fortune. A couple minutes later here come two coyotes, nose to the ground, taking the exact path as the young buck. Lights out on the leader. No shot on the follower. This is the 2nd time in 3 sits were this has happened. I've seen it 3 or 4 time in recent years past.

Do I have a problem on my hands beyond nature taking its normal course?

Not uncommon to see during this time of year when velvet is falling off. But being in the right spot at right time is lucky.

Like hogs, I shoot every yote I can. I really don't think you can kill enough of them. But to answer your question, your observations do not necessarily indicate a higher than normal yote population (although it can be). Maybe you're just lucky enough to actually see more this year.

I once read for every deer you see, there's eight that you don't see.

I didn't think of that. Last week coyotes were trailing two young bucks. One with velvet and one with tattered velvet. I guess the give off or leave a blood scent.

Could be young hungry yotes, or just following a common trail. Sounds like you're close to where they like to spend the day though.

Was doing some dozing next to a neighbors this morning. Kept seeing buzzards circling pretty low. Coyotes had gotten a WT fawn last night. Anyone that lets a coyote walk will be sorry in the long run.

I always try to shoot the trailing (last) coyote first. Quite often the one that was leading will run off a ways and then stop and look back to see what happened. I discovered this by accident, but it seems to work more often than not.

Interesting tip
Pigs we shoot the mama sow first, then blast away at the little ones as they come back around.
As previously noted, shoot everyone you see.

I've observed the same on both counts. I never let either coyote or hog walk, even if I was out there to hunt deer. The suppressor really helps in letting the hunt continue after a shot, or shots are made.

It does me. realmad mad

I know my yotes were bold last year and they spent a considerable amount of time hanging around the feeders. Interestingly enough, the deer were quite bolt too and were ready to squabble about it. up

This time of year is when I usually snare the most. I think its mostly the older pups that I'm catching. They come through with a large female. It makes me think its older pups or a group thats learning to hunt together with that large female. It usually doesn't stop until I get that female taken out and start leaving carcasses in holes they dug.

I once caught a coyote in a snare and took it out left it beside the hole and put in a new snare and caught another coyote the next night. Everybody always said to move the carcass but sometimes it may help to leave it there.
