If you have problems with coyotes doing a number on your deer population, part of a good management plan includes hunting them whenever possible.
Year-round trapping is a super way for management, but hunting coyotes and other predators is fantastic in the off-season. It gives you more opportunity to learn about the property and wildlife. Just like with shed hunting, predator hunting helps you put boots on the ground and see what’s going on. You’ll learn about movement of predators on the land, when they’re most active to feed and support their families, breeding times and more.
Cory Lundberg of Utah is a veteran predator hunter and guide with years of experience in calling to coyotes in open land. He’s chased coyotes in several western states and has learned about their habits, habitat and how to more effectively set up, call and kill them. Lundberg provides that knowledge on this latest episode of Deer Talk Now.
