Fawn Killers...........!

Mighty busy around the place right now.....but definitely going to devote some time to killing Coyotes.

I've been very careful mowing pastures to watch for fawns. There are plenty of little ones (some just days old) out there. Coyotes know that too. I love Deer and Hate Coyotes so the battle begins.

I try not to brush-hog any more than absolutely necessary until about August when most of the fawns are bigger and following Momma around.

I have run over a few in the past....that I just couldn't see. Its a terrible feeling.

This one I spotted easily enough. I am only about 10' away on the tractor.



Sorry for the poor quality. By the time I send the video from my phone to my email, then download to computer and upload to YouTube, its gets pretty grainy. This fawn is no bigger (in size) than my Dachshund and would weigh maybe 5 lbs. at most.

A succulent treat for a Coyote, Bobcat or Hog. I don't know the mortality rate....but I expect it is pretty high, especially where predator numbers are high.

I understand being careful when mowing as I too have ran over a fawn even after looking over the area as they hide very good ..felt horrible about it for a very long time and still try to mow closer to August giving the fawns some time to grow and be more visible. I also read where when the fawns are under 6.5 lb.s when born they normally will not live. Generally a young 1.5 yr.s old doe on my lease I had a very low survival rate for various reasons giving yotes a meal.

Whenever you need help just holler. I’m always down for some good night time coyote action

If you're just now starting on the yotes, you're pretty far behind. We caught our last one around the end of May but had really good success Oct-March. Snaring all your fences is a good start.

This is my understanding as well. You really want to hit the coyote population hard in the late winter/early spring to make an impact.

Wide-spread trapping or snaring being superior than shooting a few here or there.
