hunting yotes in populated areas

Gents. I have a question and was hoping that I could draw on some of your knowledge. I live in Georgia in a rural area that has recently seen an increase in the local Coyote population. Do any of you have any suggestions on how to hunt these devils in a area where there are houses within sight of each other.

    Im sorry I should have been more clear on my question. What I am looking for is advice on calling them in. I have had a hard time getting them to come into calls that work in more open areas. I guess they are more weary due to the constant human presence.

    Kitten sounds should work good or high pitch rodent sounds. Do you have a electronic caller?

    Same situation here. Though houses are along the edge of the hunting/shooting area.

    The yotes are used to human habitat noises, sounds and smells. The take cats on a regular basis. Yappy little dogs also.

    If a rifle use a very frangible bullet in a very small caliber. Or a shot gun with large shot.

    Our yotes are going back to their rest area (posted land) during the half hour + after sunrise. Ambush works best then after you have their pattern pegged.

    Walk and stalk works well on the days when they are hunting during the day. Picking the proper day is difficult.

    Best call is a cat in a gunny sack. Hang the sack in a tree on a two ropes 3 feet or so long tied about 6 inches apart.

    Turn the sack until the rope is very well twisted. Turn the thing loose and hide. After several turns the cat will start yowling. The poor sucker will continue to Yowl for as long as the sack is spinning. If not get a better cat.

    There are down sides to this type of calling but only occur when conducted too close to houses.

    Cookjp, you might want to check your local regs on the cat thing.

    first i suggest finding out your local laws about hunting and shooting near homesteads. if your in an area where house are within site of each other i don't know if shooting is the best way to go. you ever thought of trapping? i also suggest kitten distress sounds. i have one in memory on my FoxPro.
