Coyotes should I hunt here anymore?

Recommended Posts

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!!

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 shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
