Looking around hunting sites and whatnot I have noticed a lot of talk about predator hunting. Coyotes seem to be the main game hunted. My question is, why? Do you eat them? I've never seen a mounted head, so i assume that isn't it. Is it just to keep them away from other stuff? Just curious as to what the purpose of coyote hunting is. And, for those who do it, do you use an AR?

they are varmints who eat chickens, among other reasons.

I hunt them because they kill my goats. I have used an AR, but I tend to use whatever is sitting by the door on the way out.

they are pests. killed when seen.

Coyotes in most areas don't have a natural predator. They kill and eat domestic animals and farm animals, they breed in litters of multiple young and if they're hungry enough then they are a threat to small children. Keeping the coyote population in check is a necessity.

One of the local Walmarts has a full body coyote mount in their sporting goods dept.

I imagine the reasons vary wildly. Generally speaking, they are regarded by some to be nothing more than a pest.

A guy I work with has a small cattle ranch (60 head or so) he loses about 2 or 3 calf's a year to Coyotes.

OK, so after you kill one, what do you do with it? Throw it away? Bury it? I've seen coyote recipes online, but do a lot of people actually eat them? What do they taste like?
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 8:34:27 AM EST
To kill them of course. Usually use a .270.

Coyotes are horrible, nasty, evil creatures who live to kill, maim, torture, and generally fuck up everything else.

They also fuck like bunny rabbits and wherever resources are avalible, they procreate in large numbers.



I fucking hate the damn things and kill them with prejudice whenever possible.

They kill a lot of lambs/sheep where I hunt, and even occasionally a calf. Terrorize the dogs, chickens, etc. I haven't done it much, but used my .270 when I did.....couple of the guys I went with used everything from a .223 (non-AR) to a .330 Win Mag to a .45-120.

I have a pond in back with ducks in it.

I had chickens last year.

I've got rabbits running around that I enjoy watching.

Those are my three reasons for killing coyotes.


As far as mounting goes, none for me, but here's a good one for you.

My neighbor down the road's dog chewed on my wading boots that I had left out to dry. Not cheap boots either.
Two days later, I popped a coyote, got to thinking, hmm bet I can put the fear of good into the owner of that dog.
I skinned him out, shoved a clost rod right through him, and mounted him on a couple of sawhorses in my neighbors yard under the cover of darkness.
There was a message on a box end in front of him..... "Hey is this your dog?"

Didn't have any more problems with his dog coming around my house.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 8:40:02 AM EST
In our area the kill livestock and family pets.

Being at the top of the predators list in TN, their numbers have grown unchecked and they have become quite a nuisance.

If they aren't hunted they get out of control.

Ya, I'm from PETA. Did you read the post? It specifically says, just curious. Learn to read for comprehension.

So, from what I'm hearing, they are basically just moving targets. I wonder if I can hunt them around here, it sounds fun. It seems .270 is the suggested round, but will a .223 do the job? The coyotes around here are scrawny, mangy little fuckers for the most part. I would imagine a .223 would do the job.

Wow.....that wasn't rife with overreaction.....no sir.

Let's see. Coyotes are intelligent social predators that are victims of their own success. Their ability to adapt easily to the changes that humans make to the environment means that we cross paths far too often and they become a problem for ranchers and a threat to small children......hence the unfortunate need to keep their numbers in check.

Exactly. We have packs of those demons running around here. It is all rural forested land. So being that my closest neighbor raises poultry, the bastards are at my house every night stalking his turkeys and chickens. So I do my part in thinning them out....from the comfort of my elevated deck (I feel for you guys that have to travel to hunt them little bastards).

They rot where they fall usually. Unless it is in the mowed portion of our back yard that is. Then they get dumped in the woods...to rot.

Because they are problematic to livestock and domestic animals.

They are considered a pest in Ohio and are the only thing you may hunt with a long arm in Ohio.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 8:47:01 AM EST
Coyotes are like meat eating rabbits that carry infections.

A natural life cycle would be overpopulation and then starvation when the food runs out. When you introduce livestock or other controlled food sources into their environment the food never runs out and nature is no longer able to regulate the population. Often they are not hunted for food, merely asset protection and population regulation.

The USFWS reintroduced red wolves here at the coast 20 or so years ago. They've actually done a credible job of reducing coyote predation based on reports from farmers and landowners. I'm not aware of any negative issues.

Out west seems to be a different story, though.

You apparently havn't heard and seen them hunt family livestock, rabbits, and family pets.

I have.

The torment they put their prey through is pretty fucked up.

You see them as intelligent social predators, whereas I see them as the psychotic murderers of the animal kingdom. I've heard their packs hunt at night and then seen the results in the morning. Not pretty.

Perhaps the packs I experienced and happily hunted when I lived in Nevada are different the the soft, fuzzy, cuddly little pups that play hide and go seek with the animals in your area, but my experience with the fuckers justifies my reaction to their existence.

I have nothing nice to say about coyotes, and just because you admire their destructive and sadistic traits, it doesn't mean that my point of view isn't justified.

Around here, they aren't just "moving targets;" they cause damage to property, decimate deer and other game animal populations, attack and kill family pets, shred trash bags set to the curb, and more recently they have started attacking people. In this area and up into Canada, coyotes have cross-bred with gray wolves and are bigger, meaner, run in packs and are therefore more dangerous. They need to be dealt with, and people are their only natural predator. Like it or not, people are an important part of a healthy ecosystem and we have a job to do as an apex predator.

In NY, 'yotes can be taken at will during fur bearing season, no limits. Their pelts have limited value.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 9:02:03 AM EST
.223 with a 60gr nosler partition is the medicine I use in my Bushy Predator. Wouldn't eat them, but do save every pelt I get, I hang'em, very nice fur. They can be quite rank so if you're gonna skin'em be prepared. They're predatory habits is what does them in, as other's have mentioned. They are also pure death on ground nesting birds....specifically turkey's up here in the northeast, but pets are also high up on the list of tidbits they'll consume, not to mention small game. They are VERY smart. I repeat, would NOT eat one.....unless I were absolutely FORCED to.
