Doc has been cleaning the pond of dead gills this spring and dumping them in the field and it sounds like the yotes are visiting the fish pile on a regular basis, so I think baiting would be in order for yotes.
As far as shooting those mangy bastard in the spring, the only good yote is a dead yote. Seem as though a recent study has indicated that those dirty bastard are reeking havoc of the whitetail population in the spring by taking freshly born fawns. I recently read a research study on this that kinda put two and two together for me and made good sense. IMO, yotes don't deserve to live anymore than opossum do and I really hate opossum, those egg robbing bastards.
God, Family, Guns, in that order.
