Default Anyone trap Coyotes in Southeast Texas?

I have 4000 acres in Hardin and Polk Counties. I'm outside listening to the song dogs now. Sounds like 20+ of them. They are in here pretty thick. If there is an experienced trapper that knows what they are doing let me know if you would like to come and catch some of them.

When you think there are 20+, there are probably about 4...good luck to you.

I have at least 4 that need to be trapped. If you get a bobcat or black panther that's just a bonus.

All the trappers must be out running lines



My place has lots of Yotes and some bobcats, and gray foxes. If anyone wants to trap them let me know.

You don't want to do it yourself? Its a blast matching wits with a Yote

I have trapped them for over 30 years. Ran traps with my Pawpaw before that. I just don't have the time, and I want to put a dent in them before the fawns drop.

I've had about 15 PM offers from guys wanting to come hunt coyotes. I appreciate the offers, but I'm hoping someone is close enough to me and wanting to trap them. Thanks

Would love to come trap them, but I do charge for that service....if you are serious and are looking to get rid of a bunch just PM me details. This is what I do for a living.

Trappers that know what they are doing don't come cheap, I know what I charge for predator control projects and its in line with quite a few others that are capable of decimating a population within 2 weeks. What you need to understand is how a population works in correlation between resident, peripheral , and nomadic coyote populations. You will find out quickly that coyotes get educated very quickly by sloppy trappers and you get what you pay for be careful and ask for references.

Thanks. Good advice here^^^. I have no idea what the cost of good trappers are, but I will be finding out soon. When I read "decimating a population" it put a smile on my face.
