Coyote trapping Eastern Washington
« on: November 27, 2022, 07:52:17 PM »
Thanks to some advice, I was told to post my need for some coyote elimination on the trappings forum. I run a cattle ranch in the Rock Lake area and need some dogs eliminated before calving season starts in a month. I am willing to pay per dog eliminated. Please do not waste my time unless your are experienced, legally licensed and are willing to respect my land. PM if interested.

I sounds like you're asking for a Wildlife Control Officer

WCO

The problem is WDFW isn't going to issue a permit for foothold traps, which is what you need to catch coyotes.  Why? They're worried someone might trap one of their precious wolves. 

Trapping is out. Unless you get permission, then contact a WCO after you get the magic letter.  There's WCO's on HW, hopefully one will chime in to correct or fill in gaps here as to the process. I've pursued this option myself and I am a licensed trapper who used to trap coyotes before footholds were outlawed.  It's a no go for me.

Your best option now is to bait and shoot them.  Save back your next dead cow or pick up road kill, if not that, then piles of cheap dog food will work.  Feed them. A lot.

Get them accustomed to being fed. 

Then find a spot you can shoot them from a bedroom window, barn or other hide depending on your property.  I like a bedroom window and shooting them in my undies and slippers at 3am.   Get you a driveway alert monitor that'll ding dong in your room when they're on your bait, slide a lubricated window open and make sure your first shot is a good one.  You can use cheap night vision on a .223 or anything really.

What I wouldn't want is people educating them rather than eradicating them.

Ditto on ground zero.
Ya they might have a chance ,if there are no known wolf packs in the Cheney area.
If you have any depredations at all ,I'd call a warden ,and start complaining you need one.
There is a lot of yotes down there ,they all hide up on the refuge. Like a coyote strong hold.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Nobody mentioned calling in coyotes and shooting them. Maybe not as efficient as trapping but I would think there are hunters willing to shoot some coyotes especially on private land.  Maybe a guide in the area needs some land to take clients out on a hunt.  It would be a start until and if you can find a trapper.

It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

I know this doesn't help you, but if I was still in Cheney I would have jumped all over this.  Killed a lot of dogs out towards Rock Lake.  Good luck.  I hope you get someone good that treats your property responsibly, most good trappers will.
