They are becoming a bit of a problem here in southern indiana, mainly an issue for anyone who has livestock such as chickens, goats and such.

I've never heard of anyone eating a coyote, but in guess if push came to shove and there was literally no other form of food, a guy could?

I know in the base I love by they allow people to go on it during the winter months and hunt them. Their beautiful looking dogs out there, their not feeding on the dead live stock from all the farms so they have to go and work for their food. There's no mange at all in any of them,that I've personally seen. But these guys are also eating moose, deer and what ever else they can find on base.

Nuisance species. They out compete and kill off other competing species like foxes and bobcats. They have spread far and wide and multiply like mad. Seems where their populations get dense they also get more bold. A man was attacked by three coyotes in Colorado last week.

I used to hunt and trap them because the were putting pressure on the Turkeys, and would also kill off fawns when the does started dropping them. Haven't done as much scouting and hunting here, since my transfer. But once I figure out where they are, I'll go back to work on them. Washington isn't as trapper friendly as Georgia was.

Skin them and sell the hides in the winter, hang the meat for a couple days no matter the time of year, and use it for bait to draw in more. Two of my hunting spots are on farms with livestock. The owners have a zero tollerence policy when it comes to coyotes. The bigger the number of kills, the happier the farmers.

Strong demand in China is creating record prices at fur sales all across the country. These are heavy pelts with a full winter coat. It is true that light/green coyote pelts are worthless. A heavy coyote pelt that was pinned properly is worth around $25, maybe more if you go to a real fur auction. There are plenty of parasites that say furs are worthless because they want you to give them your fur.

You should kill all of the coyotes you see. Not only are coyotes a threat to young livestock, they hunt everything from songbird eggs to full grown turkey.

I trap and skin them. I've tried using coyote for bait, and the ones around here do not even come close to one of their own dead. I left it in the field, and it snowed, and it was 2 weeks after the buzzards finished it before they came back around.
