Default Coyote population

We are seeing more and more coyotes in Southhampton Virginia. A buddy of mine told me that he read that if you do not kill 70 % of the population you will have more coyotes then the year before. In other words, to maintain the population you have to kill 70 %. Does that sound right? THey must really reproduce at a fast rate and have marge litters. I am new to coyotes and this year was the first time that I have ever seen one in 16 years of hunting the area.

i don't think its possible to kill 70% of the coyotes in any area.the adult females will have large litters just like any large breed of domestic dog.for 100 years man has tryed to aradicate the coyote,putting a bounty on them,open seasons,poisoning them and a shoot one shoot them all attitude,it didn't work.the coyote will not be alimanated from this planet.i'm not sure what percentage can be harvested but 70% is very high.

Coyotes litter sizes are determined by the carring capasity of the surrounding
habitat. If a area already has the amount of coyotes that that habiat can
support the litters will be small maybe only a couple of pups,sometimes in
extream condtions she won`t concive at all. On the other hand if the resident
population is low,due to desease,heavy trapping,ect. the litters will be quite
large with as many as 8 to 12 pups. The only way I see to reduice the coyote
population by 70% would be by poisoning. Thats been tried back when preadetor
people could use devices such as coyote getters that used cyinide. Thats all
allegel now. Hunting will never wipe out the coyote.

since they are usally nocturnal that makes it harder yet. they started showing up in my area about 8 years ago and i have seen about 4 of them during the day time at night you can hear them taking on.
