Default Coyotes at feeder

What is the longest yíall have had a coyote around a feeder?

About 2 weeks ago we had an older injured coyote show up on TC. We thought it was in itís last days and appeared to be living on corn. Hanging out for hours at a time all hours of the day and night.

It appeared the cows didnít even find it a threat.
Yeah we know that pen needs work

Well it turns out it wasnít its final days and now it has its pack with it.


This is nightly sometimes up to 60 pictures of coyotes during a 24 hour period.

Today we have another coyote at a different feeder for multiple hours.


Anybody ever see anything like this?
Appears we need to get very serious about coyote hunting.

If your seeing that many around that feeder sounds like a great opportunity to start running some dirt hole sets while your there and get them thinned out a bit. And way more effective than just calling them.

Never seen that, we have them stop by a feeder every so often and grab a few kernels but move off pretty quickly.

I had a few coming to corn daily last year. They were young coyotes, but I couldn’t explain it. You have quite the problem.

Foot trapping method to catch predators. Works extremely well and this guy does it way more professionally than we ever have and we do ok. Just need a trowel, foot traps, stakes, wax paper and some sort of bait. Dead rabbit parts work extremely well in my experience if you know they are actively working that area.

Here is a video of the basics of it. You don't have to use a screen or any of that. We always just used our gloved hands and we never boiled our traps either.

Maybe they figured out where to get a snack and possibly a bigger snack if the deer show up. Crazy the numbers of them.

Looks like you might as well turn the evening throw off or lower its time until way earlier in daylight hours to give the deer a chance before the pack leaves the den.

I am on this lease. The den has to be close by as I sat at that stand Monday morning. They were howling, barking and growling just before enough light to see. Then bam they were gone and I never saw them.

How can we locate the den? Destroy all of them at once!

On several occasions I’ve seen coyotes eating corn under feeders. I always shoot them because they will scare the deer away.

This is the first season that I've seen as many coyotes staying in a feeder for long periods of time. I had 3-4 that would spend 45 minutes to an hour in my newly built feed pen every morning and evening. Some would even lay down.

Well I unzipped one and haven't seen any since. That might change when I go to the lease this weekend.

http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=665417

Good luck with your problem. Traps might be the way to go with that bunch.

Yeah they only den up until the pups are weaned off of their mother. Another thing to keep in mind is a lot of times by killing coyotes you're actually just helping the population. When the coyote population is low in an area female coyotes will have more pups.

I'd suggest using a centerfire rifle or a shotgun. Unless your coyotes down there are different than ours. Pellet guns and .22's are weak sauce. You'll wound them and make them smarter and harder to kill by doing that.

That ought to do it. I've never killed one with a bow but I'd imagine it'll be fun and quite the challenge.
