Ok so what do you do with the Coyote once you kill them, are they a nuisance kill or do you eat them?

Pretty much this, as for the fur...I've been out of that game for awhile, but likely not a lot of cash...as for eat'n one--I've eaten my fair share of critters, but that's one that has eluded me, and likely will.

Coyote is actually still fairly lucrative as a fur product. Depending on area of the country and quality, minimum $75. Some a lot more than that.

Really; I figured the nuisance but didn't really know there was still a lot of fur trading.

Do you still get paid in tobacco and whiskey?


Kidding aside I really want to get back into hunting, haven't been bird hunting in like 25yrs; I dont even remember how properly clean a bird.

One local outdoor EVERYTHING shop here had a $25 bounty on them here and that was 6 or 7 years ago. I will hear them a few times a year but not real thick here like in Greenbrier County where the store was. Black bears are all over the place though & population is increasing.

I'm not up on it this year, I only come to town in the spring to sell my furs and buy powder, shot and salt.

At the July sale at NAFA, top grade coyotes averaged 70 with he top lots going up around 140.

You should come down from the Musselshell more often Jeremiah.

The wife and I were doing our Sunday morning run in our neighborhood a couple of weeks ago when we saw a spotted fawn sprint across the road, it was by itself, no mother. Shortly thereafter the largest coyote I've ever seen popped out from behind a house and was heading in the direction of the fawn. As soon as he observed us, he turned around and went the other direction. I was amazed at the speed and grace of that animal because it literally disappeared in a matter of seconds.

Wife and I saw one come out of the wood line and cross the field we were dove hunting in this past weekend.. he stayed about 120 yards away.. I was tempted to try to close the gap and pepper his ass with the 12 ga dove load I had on hand, but resisted the urge..

I hate those deer and turkey thieving a-holes.

Like Mingo said. Very much a nuisance to me as I had 30 chickens and 25 turkey I was trying to free range. No way. one year I lost over 30 birds mostly to coyotes. Johnny Thorpe would give me $ 30.00 ea. raw. I'd just drop my catch off outside his shed with my nametag on it. Pretty good for doing something you love and not having to take the knife to it at all. Never trapped beaver. Too much work for me. But did make some good coin on mink and fisher.
Fast forward 9 yrs. and now I'm in rural CT. I have arrowed several bucks and waited no longer than 5 mins. before tracking and by the time I got to the deer the coyotes were already on him ripping him to shreds. Once I approached in a heavy snowstorm following a very heavy blood trail and as I got close I could hear them feeding. This happened several times. So yea. There a nuisance here too.

It's a constant battle for me between my place and the two large farms I trap. The coyotes are a constant problem. They're always after my chickens and one of my farmers has sheep.

Since they dropped the bounty here I just dump'm and leave their asses where they lay. And for some odd reason, when the train goes by late at night and their whistle sounds...the fucking coyotes go ape-shit crazy, yipping and howling. Either of you folks see the same behavior, or is it a local thing?

Yes. I have seen and heard the same before. They either love the train whistle. or they hate. Either way. I kill them whenever I have the chance.

Coyotes have been a nuisance here for awhile now. Problem to hunt them as there is so much private land. If one can't get them in the kill zone, permission from another farmer is brutal. And many of them are animal lovers. Loss of habitat for fawning and high coyote numbers and the deer population is still immense. Unbelievable.
