Beginning Predator Hunting Question

I have long wanted to get into predator hunting. My emphasis would be on hunting coyotes. At this time, I do not intend to hunt for pelts. If I am not pelt hunting, what is considered the proper thing to do with a coyote once it has been taken? Is it proper to simply leave it where it fell?

I ask this because I want to make sure that I am doing the right thing in the field. I would hate to do something out of ignorance that would negatively affect the perception of my sport and my fellow hunters. In the past, I have always hunted edible game. Predator hunting seems to me to potentially be a different ballgame in terms the ethics involved.

Any advice from experienced predator hunters would be appreciated.

Re: Beginning Predator Hunting Question

To the bunny huggers, game hunters and fur hunters are equally hated, so it doesn't matter what you do......they'll hate you anyways. I only hunt coyotes and hogs, and only keep the nicest most furred out pelts as personal souveniers and let the rest lay. Buzzards gotta eat to.

I always pick them out of a field. don't want the haying equipment to hit it. Out on the hills, i just leave them lay where they landed. I kill a lot of them close to rivers and on ice, those stay for the eagles.

Re: Beginning Predator Hunting Question

I haul the good yotes back and give them to a friend that doesn't mind skinning the stinkers. Usually the mangey ones lay where they fall. Although maybe a guy should toss them in a brush pile and torch em. I try to be respectful of the land owner. If it's on farm or hay ground or if they seem a little sensitive, I'll toss them some where out of sight. Us "sportsmen" don't need more negative pr.

Re: Beginning Predator Hunting Question

the only ones i leave lay are the mangy ones and the ones i put to big of a hole in, the best go on stretchers and the rest hang in the shade on the north side of my shop until i make it to the fur buyer... hey even if i only get 10 bucks for an unskinned fur it adds up for my reloading components!!!

Re: Beginning Predator Hunting Question

Thanks for the input guys. I really appreciate having the opportunity to benefit from your experience.

Once I have gotten started, perhaps I may change my mind about hunting for fur. At present, my interest is focused on using predator hunting as a year round opportunity to get in the woods and improve my overall hunting skills.

With the advice I have received in this thread in mind, I can press on and concentrate on the development of said skills.
