Welcome to the site! 

You got to just get out and get after it.   :tup:
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

They will be dropping pups starting about now.  If you kill a nursing female, try to find the den and put down the litter humanely.  Otherwise they will just starve to death.

The hides are best in the winter. The pups are easy kills in August when they're out of the den and stupid still. They should be paired up now for possible doubles. Takes 61 days I think until they have pups. I personally don't fool with them much when the females are pregnant but mostly it's because I'm hunting for the hides in addition to pest control.

Saw a yote this week that already shed its winter coat, looked like a chupacabra.
