Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default Coyotes

Hey all,

Been scouting my spring turkey field and have seen two coyotes prowling each morning. I'm not sure what to do. The turkeys seem to be out in the afternoon. Anyone run into a similar situation and if so, how did you approach it?

Kill the coyotes! And then come back in the afternoon and thump a gobbler.

agree with taking out the coyotes
they will be going for the same turkeys you are going for,
they wont leave the area till their food source is gone,
which happens to also be your food source

I suggest taking out them coyotes... If they dont get the birds your after they sure as hell will get ahold of the eggs from those birds! Which means one less turkey next year and a lot less turkeys the year after that!!! Plus you will be doing the rest of the forest a favor by eliminating an out of control problem animal!!!!

Kill em!! I've had two buddys already this year about to seal the deal and coyote's come in and the hunts over. They will be after your birds or your calling.

KILL the Coyote!!! I'm thinking about going after the filthy things - do my part to thin them out. They're getting rediculously populated...
