    Coyote's

    I've heard here in Michigan, they are growing and taking out many small game animals.
    some close townships have said that ALL small game are GONE!

    Up north on my Parents property many of them exist - as one would expect.

    We recently moved here ( still in the suburb ) 5 months ago.
    In the woods in the back yard a month ago, we saw a coyote walking thru with
    something in its mouth - maybe a couple hundred feet away.
    The neighbor said he saw one last summer just sitting at the grass line while he was on his lawn mower cutting grass. The coyote was looking at his other neighbor's pet dog out on the back porch.
    My wife in telling some co-workers what we saw, has received this picture from her friends sister out in Arizona with this coyote sitting on top of the fence...

    I have a ton of them around the 30 ac I just purchased. The previous owner took out 9 last season., and I found one dead as I was walking around this weekend (probably had been dead in the snow all winter and just now is thawing out.) Found plenty of droppings, ripped up rabbit fur and turkey feathers around the property as evidence of their presence as well.

    I won't have any problems taking out a few if they need to be thinned. Not sure what I'd do with the fur but I'm sure I could find something. A little research on the subject makes me believe prep work on their pelts isn't really all that difficult or labor intensive.

    I read an interesting article a few years back; it seems that the Hudson Bay company has been in the fur business forever, and a review of their records over a couple hundred years says that the number of predator/prey furs that they bought vary from year to year, and it shows the following correlation: Furs and hides from the prey animals will increase as their populations increase, and the predator furs increase a year or two behind them; then the prey animals furs decrease and the predator furs follow the decline the next year.

    We have more deer and turkeys here that was probably here when Columbus sailed. We are beginning to see some isolated sightings of mountain lions; we already have a lot of bob cats and coyotes; and more red foxes that I have ever seen! I have seen two foxes in my yard the last couple of months; one set off the motion light on my driveway, and the other one raided my compost pile last week in broad daylight.

    A couple years ago a neighbor 2 houses from me lost a small dog to a coyote and last week another dog was reported killed by coyote in a nearby community, both suburban areas.
    About 5 years ago the city I live in, which is about a 20 minute drive from downtown Detroit, hired trappers to cut down on the coyote population. A friend of mine who lives in a more rural setting not far from me can hear them howling at night quite often and has actually been confronted by one about dusk in his backyard a while back but it eventually walked away without taking any action. There are coyote sighting all the time around the metro Detroit area, they usually stay away from people, there habitat is slowly disappearing because of us building more and more homes wherever we can stick them.

    That’s true about how their population varies. From what I have read a female coyote can have only 1 pup or as many as 8 or 9. This all depends on the available food and their own density.

    We have a huge coyote problem here in SC. All they do is eat, reproduce, and repeat. No harsh winter's to starve any out, they hunt easily all year. Deer fawn mortality rate is north of 50 percent because of coyote if I recall. Our Hunt club thins them out every year but we can't seem to keep up. 5.56 suppressed with Night Vision scope and a preaditor call works well. For those of you that living inside city limits, I would see about trapping them.

    We have coyotes but we rarely see them during the day...hear them in the evening and early morning. I think ours are pretty lazy because the cottontails and prairie dogs are all over. Sometimes the horses get extra spooky and looking all around - I'm guessing they have seen one or more.

    They are actually more of problem in the suburbs near here...there's lots of food, pets, pet food, and people can't fire a gun at them. I read posts about them (people) filling a can with rocks and shaking it at the coyotes. Well, that may make the coyotes die laughing.
