i have fed year round and had active cameras out year round as well. i have captured only one fawn on two trail cameras with 4-5 regular does at each camera. my feeders are in hog panel pens, but i cut them down to 26" in a couple of places for fawn access. i am assuming that i have lost a lot of fawns to coyotes. with a busy schedule it will be difficult to hunt the problem away. are there any recommended ideas out there to rid some of the dogs in a timely manner?

Steel traps might help, but anywhere there is a food source new coyotes will replace killed ones almost as fast as you can eliminate them. Other than that they are just fun to hunt anytime of year to keep you sharp with you shooting and you can also justify the reason to kill them.

Yes there is poison and there is also professional trappers. If you want to do any good, you will need to trap every year and the best time is the whole month of Feb. M40's work but mostly for coyotes and will kill someone's dog.
I would go after everything and the small game and deer will explode. The trappers charge around $350 a day plus travel or may go by the animals caught.

Most of the time fawns are left by the doe as she goes to eat and water, I rarely get pics of fawns but I see plenty in the pasture.

This is my opinion, so take it for what it's worth . There's so many guys out there now with thermal/nv, invite someone you trust to your place and stay out late a couple nights a month . We've got a couple places we rotate every week , landowners come with us . Never get them all, but keeps the numbers down. One of the guys I hunt with is a county trapper , I think he gets 250$ a trip . That adds up pretty quick
