Dogging Yotes: Using Man’s Best Friend to Hunt Coyotes

Hunting coyotes with dogs is flat-out enjoyable! Just remember that it takes snow, several hunters, and permission to hunt lots of ground to get started.
Check it out:

There are several ways to hunt coyotes. Calling them in is always an exciting and rewarding way to pursue them, yet it can sometimes humble even the savviest of hunters—let alone those that are new to the sport. Baiting them, where it is legal to do so, is another viable and productive option. This usually requires you to place the bait somewhere you can be within sight of most of the time. Then there is running them with dogs, which can be a very effective way to get the job done to do your part to help protect fawns and small game.

Coyote hunting fills a void during our coldest months after most other hunting seasons have closed, and before warm-weather spring outdoor pursuits begin. Besides that, coyotes are nuisance predators whose numbers need to be kept in check. Coyotes were once considered rare or uncommon in some Midwestern states until the 1970s. Since then, they have proven to be both extremely adaptable and prolific breeders. Their numbers are likely to remain quite high, especially in the Midwest, for years to come. Hunting them is the only way to keep these animals’ populations from exploding.
