Re: Summer hunting
If you're ADC i can see a guy buying a dog just to hunt coyotes during the summer. If you're not, then it's a waste of food because come fall, a dog is to much. They won't come into a bigger animal expecially pups, which is 70% of what's out there in the fall. That's like going to playground with a bully there, who would want to deal with that, unless you're the bully. Winter doesn't help draw in coyotes with a dog either. The only time of year that a dog is useful is to kill adult coyotes who are territorial due to dens or pups.
I agree with the bugs and heat, it just plain sucks. Then you have the heat, a coyote isn't going to be running around in 90+ degrees, they're smarter then that, they head for the shade. So you're left with mornings and evenings.
Fur sucks, so no resale on that, you're basically doing it for your own good.
