Coyotes
 
We've had Coyotes around the community for several years now. Quite a few have been shot.
Last year and fall before, we had them come down near the rear porch.
This year we have some dogs, in a pen until we can give them away. Hasn't detered them one bit appears thec come near the pen to annoy the dogs.
They have apparently driven the turkeys and deer from our property. I don't like that a bunch.
Last evening I heard one give deep voiced call across the way. The dogs barked and the pack up on the hill sang. The voices seemed deep for a Coyote. Someone said they saw a wolf, somewhere, sometime around the larger area. I did see two many years ago chasing a deer almost, into my lap.
A feral kitten, that was hanging around the rear deck, cried terribly yesterday am, waking me up. It's gone. A coyote or Raccoon or even a Opossum may have gotten it.
I don't have the patience nor physically able, to sit in a probably site, in the woods, all evening

The reason they ever expose themselves

around humans is the prospect of a meal,

for which they will take some abnormal risk.

Your animals are in danger of being eaten.

Couple of options seem to be that you can try trapping them using a scent lure, setting up a bait station and waiting or trying a call system and get them to come to you.

Here in Australia we have a lot of problems with wild dogs and Dingos and a favourite method is to lay a set of traps around a scent or a bait and then shooting them in the trap so I can't see a Wolf or Coyote any different in that respect.

Where are you located at that you think you have wolves?

They breed faster than you can kill. Learn to live with them and keep those dogs fenced. Coyotes will sometimes send a female in heat to lure a dog into an ambush.


No offense and none taken

No idea where the OP is from Winds, but about 25 years ago Lake Erie froze over, and some of the wolves from southern Canada crossed the lake that winter into western NY, Ohio, and northwestern PA. I don't know if they are still around, but I got a few pictures of them during a squirell hunt on my uncle's land back in 89. haven't seen any since.

I'll see if I can find the pictures and the article that ran in the local paper about it. If i can, I'll scan and post the pics, and link the article.

Found an article from a 'cuse papre dated 3013.:

http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2013/06/wolves_that_wander_into_upstat.html

Here's one about a wolf shot in Saratoga County in 2001. :http://www.watershedpost.com/2011/wild-wolves-return-new-york-state

And the news get worse. Some of the wolves and coyotes are breeding. :eek::http://www.nbcnews.com/id/32976657/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/coyote-wolf-new-breed-predator/#.U5n4gfldV88

tin,

I would ask one question! Is it illegal in your state to bait predators and use a spotlight or night vision to shoot them?
If it is not illegal I have the answer for you so you would not have to set up all the hours and wait on the culprits to come.

Only where coyotes are a native species are they protected by any game laws. You can kill a coyote in anyway you want that doesn't harm other species. Some states have blanket laws that protect all animals, even non game species. It is your duty to know the law.

Wolves are a different story. At one point wolves were a native species almost everywhere in the US. You need to contact the wildlife resources commission before shooting wolves.

Name one state that protects yotes. None that I know of. And what are these blanket laws you mention as EVERY state has hunting seasons on a variety of animals.
