Coyotes

I have a coyote visiting my property nightly. What is the deal with these things? Do I want to keep it around or does it need a .223? What are the regs? I searched and don't see any recent threads on this topic!

If you have trouble with mice or rabbits keep them around.

If you have a hunting license and a fur bearer stamp you can hunt them year round, no bag limit, no camo requirements, no weapon limitations.

I won't tell you what to do at your property, but if I see one at my place I'll put it down. They will kill household pets and attack livestock.

This.

If you don't want to do it yourself, plenty of people here or over at Predator Hunters of Maryland on FB would be happy to help.

This^^^

They are technically "unprotected", but a license is required unless you are preventing damage to pets/livestock. I know a furbearer permit is required to trap them, but not sure about just shooting them.

I'm on the north end of Carroll County and have had coyote sightings in the neighborhood the past few weeks. I have two large (65 and 100 lbs) dogs that have a large fenced run in my backyard. I can always tell if there is one nearby by how they act when I let them back in the house. If I ever see the coyote I'll take it. My dogs don't care for it at all.

There is this if it is causing issues.

DNR has contracted with the USDA Wildlife Services to establish a public access nuisance animal hotline. Wildlife Service specialists are available to provide technical guidance or facilitate contacts with professional Nuisance Wildlife Cooperators. Individuals that are experiencing problems with coyotes or other wildlife species are encouraged to call (877) 463-6497.



…...Or you can go out and test your alpha predator skills....

The one in the story had rabies and bit a few people. …...Not actually recommending doing it that way

Kill it. Although I haven't spotted any on my cams yet I have recently read that you do not want to kill either of a mated pair. It will cause a population explosion. How you know if they are a mating pair, I do not know.

Once the spouse is killed the other screws everything it can? LOL just like humans I guess.
