Coyotes should I hunt here anymore?

12 posts in this topic

I've got a small peice of land to hunt. Haven't seen a deer yet but have all nocturnal pics on the camera. Tonight I was on stand and a huge coyote showed up and hung around till dark. Should I give up on this spot and try to find another?

Wont make any difference. I had pics of a coyote come through on the trail cam (and this guy was a booner, biggest one ive ever seen) and then i had 2 does and a nice 8 pointer come through about 15 mins later. Stopped and licked the salt block and never looked concerned at all. Coyotes are everywhere, most people just dont see em so they think they arent there. I bet theres at least 10 per square mile around here so good luck tryin to find a place that doesnt have any!!

Where I hunt there are alot of coyotes. No issues with shooting deer.

Deer are not really potential prey for a coyote. With a deer's excellent smelling abilities, I would imagine that they can distinquish the odor between a deadly wolf and a harmless coyote

A harmless coyote my arse! I've seen a hunting video where 2 of them took down a mature 8 pointer right infront of a guys deer stand. Not to sure I would say they are harmless to a deer and I have had some move through my spots and dont see deer for a week or two after they moved through. My 2 cents

Pulled my other cam today. Had a pic of a coyote come through and then 8 mins later had deer come through. Totally unaffected. Ive had 5 or 6 pics of coyotes in this spot in the last 2 weeks and i have deer and turkeys all day and night long in the area still.

I think that coyotes taking down a deer are the exception rather than the rule.

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
