I had a pack of at least 8 coyotes behind the house last night at 3:30 am. Howling and fighting over something. I am going to have to take a walk up the hill after work and see if they got one of the yearlings....I have been seeing alot of coyote and fox this year..Has anyone ever bagged a coyote with the bow?? I was able to stalk up on one last year, it was a windy day and He was bedded down behind a log and I got within 20 yards but only could see his head. I waited for him to stand but he eventually felt my presence and just jumped up and ran 10 yards and looked back. I didnt have a clear shot but it was one of those experiences you dont forget..

Never shot one and don't plan on it until they come up with a very good recipe for them ;)

I know you could get a decent $ for the pelt.

If the coyote population continues to escalate we're gonna have some serious problems in NJ.

My friends in Darien Ct have Coyotes in the woods behind their house. They also have two young kids.
I would say the woods is no bigger than Thompson Park.

I don't know the going rate - we used to get $2 from Mepps for squirrel tails and this guy in Red Bank used to give us $3 for Muskrat and $4 for Raccoon.

I guess an arrowed pelt would be on the low end of the scale.

Zone 2 has seen a lot of yotes over the past few years as well. I think the most I ever saw at once were 4 yotes chasing deer about 3 years ago. However, Since then, there seems to be less of them around but they are certainly in the vicinity.

Shawn, when are you going to give me a crack at that property. I'll shoot a yote for you. I left you a message on your voice mail by the way.

Shot this one in south Florida...

Don't want to start trouble,I know it may not be some people's trophy standards as debated on previous threads.It weighed about 30-35 lbs.I was told I was doing the farmer a favor down there as he'd been having alot of problems.It responded to my turkey calls and that proved to be a fatal mistake...
