Coyotes effecting Whitetails?

Our whitetail hunting grounds definitely have something wrong this year. We hunt 140 acres of prime ground complete with a total of 25 acres of food plots not to mention normal farming left-overs. Normally several mature bucks are taken and as many does as anyone wishes to take. Things have been this way for over ten years.

This year we are just not seeing many deer. What we are seeing is an incredible amount of coyotes. In my experience, I have not seen coyotes have any significant effect on mature deer. However, it sure seems they have pushed the deer out right now. Has anyone else had similar experience?

Time to get out the coyote call and thin 'em out. I noticed the same thing this year at my favourite spot. I still killed a nice whitetail but they're really sparse this year which is odd because we've had a couple of mild winters. I'm going back later this winter to try a few stands and see what happens, good practice anyway.

Oh it'll be fun cleaning out the yotes. I just can't believe what an impact they've had.

If you have coyotes on the property, get rid of them ASAP.

Its been 3 years since the yotes out back have been thinned. That year there were about a dozen harvested during the winter.

The next year every doe raised twins. These were muleys. Not sure about the whitetails, they are a bit tougher to observe.;)

Right now, there are 4 distinct yote packs out back. One den site is no more than 300 yards from my house. They are mocking me a bunch. How, you ask? By crapping in my back yard, that's how!

As soon as the cows are pulled off the BIA ground I'll go into my LR yote sniping mode along with some walk and stalk.

Heck, if people are upset by people shooting from a truck window, I wonder what they'd say about shooting coyotes from the comfort of your sofa or recliner? Maybe even from the throne. Place the t.v. in just the right place and you can create and play x-box hunting "LIVE" for real. LOL

Just joking,,,the mental picture is devastating to the mind.
