    Is hunting them in the warm months any difference compares to the fall / winter?

    Will be using e caller with the wind direction in my favor.
    Take lots of bug dope and use gloves and a drag rope to handle carcasses. Since I was a little kid,there's no greater pleasure for me than sitting under a shady tree over looking huge pastures on a hot summer day with a few sandwiches and thermos of ice tea and a bipod rifle waiting for GHogs to pop up or calling in mangy Coyotes. Best time I've found is from 2PM until dark. My boys like to go at zero dark30 until 10AM,but,they're still young and foolish. I'm gettin' older,so,I like to sleep in.LOL
    Never argue on social media. Every classroom had a kid that ate paste and that's likely who you're arguing with.

    Fresh cut grain fields are prime, remember their #1 food is small rodents, mice, voles, rabbit, squirrel, etc. Catch the in the field chasing mice feeding on scattered seed.

    Coyotes are shot as targets of opportunity year-round but I don't specifically go out and hunt them. They can't be eaten and the hides aren't worth much. You can't really reduce the population in a meaningful way (I've tried) but what you can do is weed out the curious ones that come too close to buildings or paddocks.

    That's an excellent point to make to newbie V/P hunters. The goal is to keep the population within manageable numbers. Because they're prolific breeders,it wouldn't take long for the population to get out of whack as we're seeing in urban areas where hunting isn't allowed. Coyotes are everywhere and causing all kinds of issues for children playing outdoors and pet owners.

    I think at least half of yote hunters dont keep pelts because they are hunting them mostly as a nuisance to neighbours or helping the deer populations.
