Last night an ambulance went down our road with the sirens on. I heard at least a dozen distinct howls answering it. I see them some and have taken a few careless ones when they gave me a shot, but haven't specifically hunted them. It's time I start thinning them out. I called bobcat and fox most of my early days but should I try baits, calls, or what? Planning on using one of the 357's mainly, so 75 yards are about the best I can see to shoot something that size now. Any suggestions?

I normally call them in with my Primos Alpha Dog however this past season I had to leave a deer out over night to track in the daylight because I lost the trail because of no light I found the deer early the next a.m unfortunately the coyotes found it before I did This year I decided to start to trap them so I will be trying to trap and remove more than I could by calling it's a tricky thing this trapping gig but I can have more lines in the water and get more on the stretchering boards
Here in far N.E. Ohio, the fur does get prime. Have friends that nuisance trap coyotes here. They favor snares. They nab roadkills and pile brush over them so the whole carcass can't be dragged off. After a few days, you can tell where the coyotes have tunneled in to the bait and place the snares.

I had just finished bush hogging my 5 acre field behind my house in upstate SC and was walking around a bit when a healthy coyote walked out in front of me at about 75 yards. I had my Kahr Arms CW9 on my hip but stood there kind of dumbfounded before he ran off into cover. This was at 1PM on Friday. It's time for me to set up my caller and decoys.
