Did not here about this one.

Did not here about this one. A bounty would be great to help keep them in check. My wife and I want to get 10-12 in prime and get a blanket made from the hides. It will be a beautiful blanket and very warm. Glad the girl is OK.

  I didn't hear of this one

 

I didn't hear of this one either and I normally get an e-mail from the CO Div of Parks and Wildlife.  I knew about the 3 in Broomfield.  In the past two months I have seen 2 right in the field behind my house during daylight hours and have heard their howls at night.  This is the 1st in four years.  I think the mild winter we had in the area allowed for more off-spring.  I am all for the bounty!  I'll definitely do my part!

I was gonna say thet I think

I was gonna say thet I think that's the 4th one just on people alone in Colorado this year. Not counting a few others on pets where the owners were close enough to see it happen. I would love to have a bounty on them as an added incentinve to get out there and chase them around more often but I doubt they will ever try that again with budget constraints and lack of noticeable results.

I haven't had time to get out in my normal areas this year due to scouting for my elk tag so I'm not sure if there are more than normal up here or not. I know I've only seen three up in unit 10 with all the time I've been up there this year.

I too did not see this one

I too did not see this one til IO was surfing around reading the news last night.  My wife has actually acquired me some new spots to hunt coyote and they are begging me to come out and shoot some.....maybe when goose hunting is slow I will have to give her a go.  SGM if you lived closer all the coyotes will kill I would be more than happy to give them to you.

Goose, thanks for the offer.

Goose, thanks for the offer. Where are you in Colorado? I am hoping the wife and I can get out this year as I have a new 22-250 that needs to be broken in the right way. Was gone all last season while the yotes were in prime so sure want to get out this year. Got a new call I have been wanting to try also but could not use being gone. I will let you know after we go out how we do.

It just keeps happening, more

It just keeps happening, more and more.  The coyote spopulation is out of control.

As I have said in other threads, there have been a few out here in CA in recent years, including one where a coyote tried to drag a toddler off of a playground.  As some of you have mentioned, they need to throw up a bounty or something on them in some of these trouble spots.

Problem is,  at the same time this is occurring, you have idiots that are starting fires at places that trade coyote and other furbearing pelts.  I guess some people care more about the animals than they do about humans.

Bounties won't help in most

Bounties won't help in most of these areas because these are the new urban coyotes.  They live in open space around the cities and towns where the common hunter can not hunt.  They are being fed by homeowners because they are cute.  That is until one of them decides to have a snack on the family cat or dog.  Also most of the people that are getting bit besides the children have no idea of what to do around a wild animal.  I watched a interview on the girl that was just bitten and she said that they just watched the coyote come up to them and sniff their legs.  Common sense has left the human race.

I know they are urban

I know they are urban coyotes, but lots of places have urban deer hunting.  Why not coyotes?  Just use archery equipment.

I don't think that a bow

I don't think that a bow hunter would put much of a dent in these animals.  Even with them eating out of a dogs dish in the back yard.
