How many coyotes do you see in a normal trip? We normally see one per day sitting in the blind and will see one roaming anytime we are out in the daytime riding around.

I know this is way too many and we are putting the hammer down on them. I want to say 6-8 down in the past two months.

We don't see them very often but we hear at least 2 different groups howling late in the evening almost every day. I think I've killed 8 this year.

if i see one , and i have a firearm, it gets shot regardless of what i'm afield for. that's
one i may not see again and have a chance for a shot at.
i'd rather be seeing fawns and calves and rabbits and squirrels and turkeys and such.
the redtails and the owls will take care of the rodents if the neighbors will leave them be

I agree, maximum. I shoot coyotes and hogs on sight.

Kill them all. I've seen fewer fawns this year than almost ever (only one set of twins, and many dry does). You could tell when the fawns got big enough to dodge them, because suddenly they were hammering our sheep and goats. Last week I heard them howling two different sunsets in the neighbors place.

I wrote this in a previous post but worth repeating: TPWD biologist study showed that one breeding pair of coyotes "can and will" kill 50 fawns during fawning season. Even if that is a bold exaggeration, which I believe it is not, they are fawn killing machines. texas rifle

I’ve killed 5 on Ft Hood in the last few months and have seen multiple I couldn’t get a shot on. Gonna spend a lot of time hunting them this winter into spring.

That's not unusual.

Kill everyone you see, and you might make a small dent.

They are 49% of the reason I have a rifle by my side at all times. The other 49% is feral hogs.

Shot my 1st coyote this weekend. I have heard then my whole life but have only seen them in the wild a few times. Saturday was the day everything came together.

If a fawn fails to make it, there's an 80% chance it was the result of it being killed and eaten by coyotes. Weather and other predators take the remaining 20% of fawns that fail to make it.
