So I was doin some scouting the other day and deer sign was everywhere...everywhere I saw deer tracks there were yote tracks. I have personally seen many and heard them at night. So I'm going to start hunting them to thin them out a lil. Other than mounting one what do most do with them? Let them lie where they fall?

Saw a lot of coyote sign around lake Maurepas yesterday . Noticed rabbits missing from areas that normally hold plenty rabbits and also found a button buck skeleton with fresh scat right next to it .

Shoot em !

Me either
Except on the low road around manchac I've seen a lil sign over there but not deep in the swamp . I guess when deer get thick the predators move in . Next we'll get cougars lol

Wondered that myself. Don't want to mount them either and want take out whatever I see, but kinda hate leaving them to just rot. Hoping there was something that could be done with them.

Yote
If its a pretty one skin it out completely and nail it on a sheet of plywood and salt it. You will need to scrape it after it dries but will make a nice pelt for garage or camp or hunting room. Lots of them are raggedy or mangy and are better left for buzzards. Now next thing, don't think just cause your going hunting them your gonna get them, very tough down south to kill a yote other than the rare stumble upon one and kill it. If you kill a few you are doing exceptional and keep doing what your doing. Good luck and remember yote's are the ultimate survivor, 3 times smarter and harder to kill on a regular basis than a deer but sometimes the situation just works and it's easy. Keep us posted of your success and attempts.

Hmmmmm
Well you can think about it in a couple of ways. if you leave it where it is shot, it won't go to waste. Other animals will eat it, but that is leaving a rotting carcass out in the woods. Whenever i shoot raccoons (i have a huge problem with them getting in my college house) i usually throw them in the water. Turtles, fish, gators, and even birds will tear them up. The smell isn't a problem and the coon will feed a more diverse bunch of other animals. Iv'e called the parish to help me with this problem but i guess they are busy with other things so i took it into my own hands.

Note To Others: Corner a coon in your laundry room and you have a longggg day ahead of you. Also walked in to one eating my raisin bran. Not a clue how they get in.
