    We got 'em down here in East Alabama. I have a fox pro call that I use some....killed 3 with back in the fall. Also, take a thick sponge like you wash vehicles with..cut into about 2.5" squares...soak in sardine/fish oil....tie 4 lb. mono on it and hang from tree branch. They eat it and can't pass it so they get compacted and die.

    When I'm seeing coyotes regularly on my place, I don't see many, if any, deer. Since I whacked 2 yotes in two weeks, the deer are coming around several evenings a week. I'm sure it's not a coincidence.

    Saw a video where coyote crap had big chunks of sponge in it so not sure it will work.thinking about setting snares and hunting them here soon.

    Try 50# spiderwire and a treble hook in the sponge ... I've been told that works well too:rolleyes:

    Get a hold of a trapper in your area. Someone who knows what they are doing will thin them out quickly.

    You will never win. Accept them. They aren't going anywhere and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it.

    Coyote removal, understory cover, and survival of white-tailed deer neonates

    Despite an initial increase, the overall effect of coyote removal on neonate survival was modest. Mortality rate attributable to coyote predation was lowest during the first removal year (0.357) when survival was greatest, but the mortality rate from all other causes did not differ between the pre-treatment period and any year during removals, indicating that coyote predation acted as an additive source of mortality. Survival probability was not related to vegetation cover, either directly or in interaction with coyote abundance. When the objective is to increase the recruitment of white-tailed deer, we conclude that neither coyote control nor vegetation management appear effective. Reduction of the antlerless harvest may be necessary to meet this objective, but this harvest strategy warrants additional research in Southeastern deer populations.
