Tired of the coyote's killing everything in my yard.
« on: June 13, 2009, 05:31:42 AM »
I am looking for a good trapper, to kill off the damn coyotes.

Some history.
I live in the stanwood area on 5 acres tracks that have not been developed fully yet.

So far the Coyotes have killed (at least a dozen chickens),a deer,and recently my daughters cats (2) of them. I tried the remote call to try and lure them in to shoot them but with no luck.

They killed and ate a WHOLE deer within 30 feet of my bedroom window and I never woke up.
I have seen a coyote a time or 2 streak thru my yard but I have not gotten a good bead on them.

The coyote's will come very close to the house and I am afraid they are getting brave enough to attack a young child.

Anyone want to try and trap them??

Without the use of body gripping traps they are very hard to trap.  They're too clever for live traps, but that's all the tree huggers will let us use. :bash:  Good Luck.

I suppose that using a Thompson Center trap is out of the question?  You did mention "kill" them yotes.

You can call your local CO and get a professional to trap them on your property with a permi, BUT, the coyotes will just fill the void very quickly unless you can trap out a large area.

It will be cheaper to build a chicken coop with a good fence, coyotes killing deer is a fact of nature the deer were born to be coyote/human/etc feed.  As far as feral or free roaming cats, the coyotes did the local bird population a favor, get a litter box and keep them in the house as pets.

As long as the foothold trap and snare are banned in this state the coyotes pretty much rule.

Sometimes we have to learn to fit into the scheme of things instead of bending them to fit us.  You moved there the coyotes didn't have a choice and then you put food out for them, chickens and cats.

what side of the I-5 are you in stanwood? How close are the houses? I was born and raised over there, my brothers still reside there. We arent trappers, but depending on where you are, we might be able to help thin them out (bow, shotgun, etc).
I'd buy that for a dollar.

I did a quick search on a TC trap but I am not sure what that is??

I am not in town. I live out towards lake goodwin. I am pretty sure its a no shooting zone. I need ot bone up on the laws to see if you can shoot a bow.

you just cant shoot a centerfire rifel on that side of hwy 9. bow shotgun or pistol should be fine and dandy. no pistol or shotgun in city limits though.  I think anyways. I'm kinda out of the loop over here.  :tung:

We should hook up and do some coyote killing. Are you out of the no shooting Zone?? If you are a hunter you should stop buy and check out my stealth hunting machine I have been developing for the last 8 months!!

ftp://ftp.snoco.org/Planning_and_Development_Services/No%20Shooting%20Maps/Noshooting_countywide_58x36.pdf

I am in the yellow no shooting zone.
Does anyone know the laws or a link to the laws about killing/shooting animals for depredation??

Not as bad as the one that I hit with my .300 win mag at 150 yds. It was nothing but a little pile of meat and fur.

like the terryucky restaurants then   :yike:

I got two solutions.....

1.
Since you can use a centerfire use a rimfire. 17HMR.

Hide on your roof and wait for them to come in.....
    THen plink them roight off their dam feet.


2.
Hide behind your chimmney on the roof and snipe it with a 50 BMG!!

BOOOOMM!!! whhoooop! and there's your coyote problem..

And a little mess to clean up. :chuckle:

I read recently that taking a couple of coyotes on your property will change the pack behavior and they'll be more wary.  Maybe they'll push out past your place a little further.   If your remote caller didnt work why not bait them, my understanding is that its legal.   Red light and coyote bait....should solve your problem.

Think I saw coyote bait at Cabelas

Take a hammer up to the roof with you, if you use this option. Muzzle blast is likely to loosen shingles!  :yike:

But I like the roof-sniping angle of it.  'Maybe' the 17 HMR is a better choice. Presuming a pitched roof, take a sleeping bag with you to make it easier to wait them out, laying on the side opposite their likely approach, most-hidden from view.

May have to bait them and shoot them. I sent an email to the fish and game but they have not responded.

Being I live in a no shooting Zone, I still should have the right to defend my farm animals and pets. I need to bone up on depredation laws. Anyone have tips/links to those laws??

I have not seen the rotten coyote's in a few weeks, did see some younger kids chasing a pup into the stickers.
