Default @#$% Coyotes!

Scouted on one of my favorite areas on Saturday and didnt hear one gobble or even see one fresh turkey track. But I did see a helluva lot of coyote tracks. Went back yesterday to the same area and found one fresh
set of turkey tracks........followed by a fresh coyote track. Guess I'll be writing this area off this year. Anyone else having yote problems?

not a major problem but have found what was left of 3 turkeys over the past couple months, most likely victims of coyotes.

Evidently the same happened to one of my places since last spring. I chased a couple of toms there and saw lots of hens and poults. This year- nothing. I have heard and seen many yotes there in the past year tho. I guess its time to break out the predator calls. I'm just north of crawfordville, in whigham ga. Can you hunt the nat'l forest down there?

Ain't it funny how you can use the same load on turkeys and 'yotes ?

We've found a bunch of turkeys in one area with their heads sheared off by a Great Horned Owl. Coyotes have fed on them since they were killed though. I've seen plenty of Turkeys in the areas we run coyotes in and have seen some coyote carcasses they fed on over the years, but not a great deal of them and many of them the yotes did not kill themselves. Do think they might be a problem with poults though. Also, Was not a good spring last year for raising young ones with how wet it was, at least here in PA. Saw many Hens with small numbers of poults and Hens with tiny poults that were obviously hatched much later after losing her first attempts. Lots of other reasons out there besides (or in addition to) the yotes! Juniorpc
