Like most, we have a coyote problem and calling hasn't proven to be the answer. Our trapper has snares set, but with hunting season upon us I wondered about strategically baiting them with a gut pile. I realize I'd have to kill every member of any group that showed up but do you think I can expect any success? The prevailing wind would be blowing directly from the guts towards their den area. What say you?

I wouldn't personally waste time doing it, not that it wouldn't work, but It would be hard to be there when a dog showed up, could be 1am. Snares are working 24/7 if they are set in the right place.

Have killed several at gut piles and dead critters. Killed 4 over 2 weekends at a dead cow. During deer season put the gut pile where you can see it from the stand and shoot any that come to it.

Killed 2 yotes early one morning from the deer stand and a couple hours later a nice buck from the same stand.

Doesn't hurt to try it.

I have never had any luck hunting gut piles, but I keep trying. Like Western said, they are probably coming in the middle of the night.
I have snared them coming through holes on the HF.
Our trapper has some bait that he uses with foot traps, he is very successful. I need to spend more time with that guy.

They are not predictable enough to sit and watch bait.

Agree but have had luck putting it where I could see from the deer stand then killing them at it while hunting. I would not hunt a gutpile to hunt yotes normally but if already out hunting why not.

Where I have had the most luck killing them is around dead livestock or hogs. Takes them longer to clean that up than a gutpile and return trips seem more frequent.

Agreed dead livestock or hogs is best. The tail end of winter this year I dropped some hogs on short, green wheat, then killed coyotes off the dead hogs. Early morning and dusk. I felt like the Grim Reaper of south Fannin county.

It will happen again. rifle

This very scenario is why I purchased a rifle suppressor.

This technique works best in the dead of winter. If you want to sit and watch bait.

After you kill a deer, take the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys and put them in a five gallon bucket. Add some blood and and some water then stick the bucket in the deep freeze until frozen solid. Once frozen, go back to the location you killed the deer, the blood on the ground will have them working the area. Dump the contents of the bucket out and watch it.. The frozen block will last longer and they can't drag it off. So if you have a few days you can leave it there and come back to it all you want, night time temps will freeze it back up for the next days hunt. If you don't want to leave it there you can put it back in the bucket and take somewhere else or store it in the freezer.

Good luck. But like others have said, traps and snares work while your not there. And this could even be used for gang sets as a bait station.

This^^^^

In late deer season where we are the temps can be -20. I'll take the guts, organs and all the bones from a deer after butchering and put them in the loader bucket than fill the bucket with water and put it up 12 feet in the air for a few days. Once frozen solid I lower the bucket and drive to where I want the bait (usually 100 yards from the family room window) and use a tiger torch on the backside of the bucket until it drops out. A carcass done this way will last a couple weeks at my place and no need to actively hunt it as we spot them from the family room whenever we are in the room or the dogs let us know if something is going on.

Shot a hog out of the drivers seat through the rear passenger window at a feeder. the hog was facing me with his head down so I shot between the head and shoulders trying to get spine. It dropped like a rock then hopped up ran off. I tracked if for a bit but there was no blood and I was in flip flops so I gave up. Next day im at the same blind and spotted 6 buzzards in a tree about 150yds from the feeder. So I knew the hog was dead there, about 10 min after noticing this 2 coyotes are slowly making there was towards me and the dead hog area. I shot the further one at about 170-200yds and the closer one was gone before I could find him in the scope.

We baited them in the winter time, back when I was a teenager. We would get dead chickens from a poultry farm and throw them out in the same spot for a week or so. We looked for are open area where we could set up downwind and have 50 yards or so before the yotes could reach cover. We never came close to wiping out a pack, but we did a lot better than the one or hopefully two you could expect calling.
