    Electronic call and diaphragm call I must be honest there are only a few calls I can do with a diaphragm that sound like a coyote but the few I can do I do well I keep practicing trying to get good enough to just use diaphragm only but I'm not there yet

    I ask how many of y'all that got snow over the weekend used this as a chance to canvas the area for yote tracks? I did and I didn't have any problems finding that I have a yote problem. I walked on two different tracts miles apart, within 5 minutes on each I found multiple sets of tracks (some of the tracks different sizes) that appeared to be working cover where I found deer beds. I can't help but think these were packs of yotes targeting deer. I have seen yotes hunting deer, grown deer. Once I heard them when they caught the deer. Nope, I was not about to walk toward that sound in the dark.
    I went out to look around and didn't see one deer track or dog track, but I didn't go to all the property. I suspect the deer are herded up at left over corn piles?

    Ncgundogs, I hunt them with electronic (Foxpro) call mostly and you have to be on your A game to get one too....they use wind to their advantage every time. Have to know where to set up to your advantage and move around...not educate them or game over. Got a trapper coming to help me out...hope he can thin then out ...suppose to be good. Thing is, there so many and you kill few more move in...dont know if there any way to get it under control. Know where a big mound of dirt/trees that was pushed up years ago to clear some land and a den down in that pile....can smell them all during time they raising their young...found deer bones been drug to their dens several times...I mean big deer...not fawns...but may have from where someone throws one out. Do believe they working on the fawns though...no doubt about that...too many big does in May/June without a fawn with her...see it more and more last few years. And in fall, not near as many small deer (fawns) as you use to see. Many of deer on corn now are mature does...less small deer...they not there.

    Winnie 70, I would have to put a camera on that den for a while, then find some dynamite.

    We know that 90% of the time they come to the call downwind that tells us where to set up sometimes even when we have good wind they still make us that's just part of the game getting busted just happens but knowing when to leave and quit hunting is just as important as knowing what call to use and when

    I also think most people put there electronic out in a field and try to call the coyotes to them that's only going to work on a few coyotes when you use a call you have to let the coyotes come to you in a natural manner and crossing a wide open field is not all that natural for a couote

    There are way more coyotes than you can imagine! I've killed 18 from my back porch in a year and they just keep coming!

    If anyone thinks your going to affect the coyote populations by "hunting" them. Your wrong. Personally, I've hunted in areas that had extremely high coyote populations but also has high deer and turkey densities. Been like that for years upon years. I guess I'm kinda in-different on it. I'll shoot'em if I see'em but not because I think I'm doing anything beneficial. Just another legal opportunity to pull the trigger.
    If you want to hurt the population. Get a good trapper. Not a newbie, not a weekend warrior. I mean a d@mn good trapper. And stay on'em year round. Anyone else and all your gonna do more than likely is educate about 1/3 to 1/2 of the coyotes. You can really work on the populations like that. If serious management and control is your goal, I think your wasting your time shooting them. Yeah, it's fun, but your not really accomplishing anything.
    While we're at it. I'm all for every manner of trapping and supporting hobbies and making money. But until the live market on coyotes is shut down, there's always going to be a $h!tload of coyotes in this state.
    I live in Tennessee, but my home is North By God Carolina!
    Just because you do not agree with my opinion, it does not make me wrong!
