Default Re-populating

I'm in the Adirondacks, the lay out of my land has 3 very different environments. There is a small mountain, to the east of that there is about 300 acres of heavily wooded area with a large main trail that runs through it, the wooded area leads into a marshy area that connects to a pond, past that pond is a stream that leads to a lake that has wooded area to the west of it and marsh to the south. I have a small rabbit and deer population and a decent sized turkey population. I'm a little over run with predators, I have fox, bobcat, and a large population of coyotes. My first priority is to take care of the coyotes, but after that I want to make the land a great area for deer and rabbit.

What would your suggestions be on how to make the land very inhabitable for the rabbit and deer and increase the population.

Kill the coyotes by any method that you can. They eat everything that you are wanting to have on the property.

shoot,trap and poison every coyote on and around your property, every coyote you kill will save 20 deer a year

20? That's pushing it amigo. They'll eat the heck out of your rabbits, but not so much deer. Definitely kill them in legal ways, poison probably ain't an option. Traps and calling would be the most effective way.
