Why not kill them with pups.

:yeah: they grow up to be fawn killers. Might as well shoot the  pups or let Mother Nature take care of them after mom isnít around!
100% agree!  :yeah: There is ALWAYS a firearm either on me or in my vehicle when I'm scouting or hunting. If I see a coyote then it becomes a coyote hunt! I don't care what time of year it is or if they have pups or not. If killing 1 saves fawns and elk calves then it gets killed. We have too many issues as it is with predators. Bears and Cougars are at a high and that hurts the elk and deer numbers enough already!


Same here, always have the rifle with me to pop Yotes. Game numbers need to recover some how. Dam stinky Yotes.

Exactly my point. Take out a female this time of year and you might actually get 5 or 6 with one shot. Seems like a win win for fawns and many other animals

Take out the same female in January and you accomplish the same thing sans the starving pups, plus you could make gas money for the trip.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Don't always find them in January. Sometimes you run into them during the spring/summer while out scouting. Some of us don't care about the pelts but do care about our herds of deer and elk. For me this year I also want to try eating coyote. Saw several videos of a guy preparing various parts of a coyote and feeding it to people. People said it tasted like venison. If pups starve it sucks but that means those pups don't grow up to eat a lot more fawns and elk calves.

I actively pursue coyotes in the October-March times in Eastern Wa. I will take opportunity dogs year round. I do save the good hides

Nobody that i know sweats it when they kill a mouse or rat in there house/ shop.. I'm sure they got a bunch of babies depending on them. A pest is a pest.

Coyotes have a lot to offer in a well balanced ecosystem.  I would not classify them as pest.  I think they get a lot more blame than they actually deserve.  When you look at what feral cats, skunks, raccoons, bears, cougars, etc do to populations of game birds, small game, and ungulates.  It is usually much more than the impact coyotes have.  They serve an important purpose in keeping a lot of vermin in check. 

I used to share many of the opinions that you guys have, but research, education, and observing the impact my hunting did around the ranches I hunted year round, changed my mind.  The benefit to year round hunting in most instances, is observed around ranching operations.  That is where you see the populations being backfilled by surrounding areas and the numbers can be kept in check.  Individual coyotes that cause the most trouble can be identified and killed.  And they develop a healthy respect for animals and humans.
