They eat, breed and eat some more!
They may be one of the most adaptive and most cunning of all of God's creatures because they can survive in just about any condition!
They have been spotted from the middle of small town America to just outside Wrigley Field in Chicago!
They used to just be in the west and southwest with folks up in the northeast region tying to control the fox population. Well now you can just about find them everywhere and when they move in other species decrease in numbers!
Locally our game bird population has just about disappeared and fox, a coyote's biggest competition, are few and far between now!
But the general public usually does not have a problem with that!
Usually I only get a call when they return to their home on the edge of town and find a coyote eating the outside dog's food OR the outside dog. I have a half dozen places I hunt that have lost their family pet to coyotes! One young girl let her miniature schnauzer out to go potty before bedtime and watched a coyote attack it! She was able to scare off the coyote and after a long stay at the vet and a LARGE bill, the pup did survive.
I also provide predator control on local cattle ranches and hunting leases.
This is not a business and I do not charge!
I enjoy the challenge of the hunt and in return for my services, I get access to another places to hunt.
While my goal is to thin out the population a bit, I do have a great deal of respect for all predators!
I had not purchased a hunting license since the mid 80s before I got interested in predators! After I had been introduced to shooting sports a friend lost a couple of calves to coyotes.
I dusted off the old shotgun and was gonna just come shoot them!
After a few unsuccessful hunts I started my research! That led to my passion or as my wife would say, my obsession!
Here are a few of my pics from some local hunts.
I guess that is enough for now!
Thanks for looking!"
