We can shoot them year round and under a light as long as you have a base license. And they’ve been around for years just not very close. But I just went for a ride and see they cleared and chipped and stumped a large section of pine. That may have them pushed over.

Your coyotes are logging tracts there and grubbing the stumps?  Holy cow!!  Maybe you need to be scared.   :D

most places allow you to kill a predator if it is threatening you family or property.  You can get extra deer tags if you are a farmer land owner who's crops are being trampled.

  When we first moved here we had a neighbor with big farms and free damage tags for deer from DNR. Their son and ours were teenagers and would go harvest a few as we could use them. I was working overseas so the neighbor would ask my wife how many and when she could use them and she would schedule and they would go shoot them accordingly. I think they could even shoot them till 10:00 pm at night with the damage permits. This was not hunting - it was harvesting/removal. There were farmers in the area who shot them and dragged them to the edge of the field and left them. Some pulled the backstraps and left the rest. I'd much prefer to use the whole deer where they could find people to take them but some people did not have the time  on inclination to do so.

   Coyotes are no limit, no season and lights and electronic calls authorized in and around fields during certain times that do not overlap other seasons.

Very nice coyote Ron
I like the coyotes for all the varmits that they eat .
Around here in New York they have contests and prizes to whom ever gets the largest coyote.Even though we have animals on the farm I still think the coyote eats a lot of mice rabbits and even wood chucks .

I have up to 3 packs in proximity to my house.  Theyre very very reluctant to be seen by a human here and they wont come in to a mouth caller.  I use MFK mouth diaphrams to howl and can get them talking to me but never to come in.  Day or night.  AS SOON AS I PACKUP AND WALK BACK theyll howl RIGHT where i was as an added insult. Rabbit distress, turkey distress and lip squeek also havent worked.  Even food bait.  They are extremely smart about staying hid here since we all hunt and all shoot at fanged objects.

Basically go out back target shooting and peeing on stuff more often.  Reclaim your territory and educate any slow learners.  12G buckshot or large birdshot.  Watch some of MFKs youtuve vids.  These guys call them right into their laps.  No cammo, no scent.  Totally different than the ones i have here.  And yes theyll come right to the fence but usually in stealth mode. Only had them howl close a few times.

I do honestly like that theyre out there but would also like to shoot them at the same time.  Mixed feelings.  Ill need a pile of feathers on hand to pick a side. Until then them and the black snakes can have all my mice. Have tons of those and theyre the bigger pest.
