    Quick Question,
    This year will be my first try at coyote hunting. I have no need for the hide but I wanted to know what do must of you do with the carass after you shoot one, bury it, leave it, ...? Here in Alabama on land where we hunt whitetail I have been seeing increasing signs of coyotes and decreasing signs of small game such as rabbits and I think the coyotes are to blame. I hear them all the time while in my stand and I figure it has to be an increase in population to constantly see signs and hear them.

    Regards

    I sell the furs when they are prime and feed the meat to my wolfdog.

    I guess I should drag them off and dump them in the creek to keep the smell away from my hunting area.

    I have talked with the landowners/ranchers I hunt coyotes for and I dump them off where they dump their dead animals or garbage. If you leave them lay it may become a potential problem. Go the extra mile and the landowners talk and you will have more land to hunt than you know what to do with. At least it worked for me.

    PLEASE don't throw a carcass into a creek. It will pollute everything down stream. Talk about p___ing off a land owner to see a coyote or two floating down his creek for his wife or kids to see.
    Where in AL do you hunt?

    You are right, the creek is not a good idea. I should ask where to discard of the carcass as stated by blipelt. And if there is no where recommended then I should make a suggestion of some where far away from the hunting and grazing areas.

    I hunt just south of Selma and around the border of Marengo and Perry county.

    I staked down deer hides out in a harvested bean or corn field for long raage crow shooting. A carcass should work just as good.

    hang 'em on a fence post, toss 'em up into a tree for the vultures, skin em out, drop 'em off at the rancher's dump site, or whatever. Not good to drop em into the creek, though...
