Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Feb 20, 2016

Coyotes can decimate a deer herd, especially buck fawns, according to scientific studies. You might think that killing all coyotes in the answer, but it's actually counterintuitive. Coyotes are extremely resilient and will self regulate, but over killing them can actually trigger a biological event resulting in high pup crops. Regardless, hammering coyote packs and reducing numbers in your deer hunting areas will only help your cause. Al Morris from FoxPro is an expert coyote hunter and helps us breakdown and dissect this essential aspect of hunting, from beginner to intermediate levels.
