I finished my HF the end of last May. Since then, I have shot or snared 18 coyotes, got number 18 a couple of days ago.. Fawns should be a lot safer this year.

Ongoing process, but it's working.

My trapper is up to 34 since October of 2022, mainly snares (3-4 via footholds). 600 acres in Mills county. We have not gotten one in nearly 60 days, and none on camera lately either. Hopefully we have a bit of a handle on it now. I did not lose any of my fall lambs to yotes this year.

Yea, snares are working pretty good for me too. 14 out of the 18 were snared.

I was once on a lease and shot a coyote. I sent a pic to the landowner and he game unglued. Said to not shoot em because they eat baby pigs.

I sell pig hunts, so there's that. They sure do eat them though. I've seen them stalking piglets in my wheat field.

Sbushee, nobody gets to molest pig eating song dogs on my place.

I've only shot a few coyotes in my life; 'just don't see that many. But I knew several sheep farmers growing up and admired them greatly. It's now kinda hardwired that it's my obligation. However, as lazy as I am about varmints, I seriously doubt that I'm gonna upset the balance of nature.

Place we hunted years ago had tons of hogs and a few coyotes. Property owner got a “government trapper” as she called him, out ran snares. The snares collected almost 200 hogs in a year along with a handful of coyotes and coons. What she wouldn’t tell you is how many fawns/yearlings died in the snares, it was quite a few.

My snares are set at holes the coyotes dug under the HF. I've only caught coyotes and two coons. I'll only set snares under the fence for that very reason.

Farmer friend I bird hunt in KS forgot to tell me he was letting a friend snare yotes on his farm. My Garmin indicated I had a dog on point 200 yards ahead. When I got there dog was already half passed out. Luckily was able to quickly release him and he slowly came too. It was a good set, under a fence with logs funneling anything crossing right into snare. We called it a day after that.

Those things work, but they scare the heck out of me when runnin dogs.

I have been using snares for at least 25 years and have never had a deer caught in one. I put them in holes coyotes have dug under the fence.

They kill and eat the fire out of fawns. Pigs don’t eat fawns they just tear up some dirt mostly.
We always shoot the song dogs.
They do the most harm to other wildlife.

My place in Dickens county has loads of yotes that are invisible. Every morning and evening they serenade from numerous directions in and about my property. Sounds like 4 or more in each group. I have killed maybe 4 or five over the last 12 years during deer season on stand,
My biologist defined a 50% fawn survival with the yote population in my area. It's amazing how they stay out of sight when their vocalization says such large numbers.

Shoot them when we see them, but don’t hunt for them. Killed a handful of dogs and a couple cats last year.

Number 19 today in a snare. 19 coyotes in 13 months. This is the third coyote from the same fence hole.

I hunted a ranch not far from Stompy’s in Albany. The ranchers frowned on shooting coyotes, with the exception of any running deer off around our stands. It was around 12,000 acres (I think) and had plenty of deer and coyotes. It’s the only place I’ve ever hunted that coyotes would stand and watch your truck go by, or stop. I thought it would be a dream place for a contest hunter…..😁

Stompy, it sounds like you are going through the same routine that we did.
When my brother HFed his place he snared about 8 coyotes the first year, since then only a few. But we killed well over 200 coons that first year. We used snares, DP foot traps, and ambushed them at feeders. We would also drive around at night and spotlight them in the trees. Now he only gets about 20 a year, we figured they are newcomers, I doubt he has any resident coons.
He put new sheep and goat fencing up on his LF place (replaced the three-strand barbed wire) and started snaring holes. He got about 14 last year. He got a 1099 because he collected too much bounty.

Funny thing about coons Simple, I usually trap about 25 a year. My coons are gone this year, have only trapped 6. I'm only seeing 3 on cameras. I don't know what happened to them.

When I was low fence I didn't set snares, just shot them. Before HF, probably killed about 5 a year. The snares have definitely been more effective.
