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!!

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.
