Set up with a good rifle a few hundred yards off and start calling with coyote pup distress calls. Whack 'em all.

objectivley speaking what difference does it make what age you kill them.....they are varmits and are detrimental to deer and small game. granted its not as sporty as havin one come to your predator call and wackin him from a 100yds away......in my opinion the only difference between killin one that hunts and killin one that gets fed is the game they hunt and kill while they are living.....so dead is dead be it 8weeks or 4yrs....only with the 8week old youre ahead a few more rabbits and deer fawns......in case you cant tell i really dont like coyotes

I hope "babies" that you are not talking about "baby" coyotes, because that would be the biggest bunch of coyote squeeze I've read lately.

So, if you found a litter of baby rats behind your refrigerator, you would .... what? What about "baby" cockroaches?

The baby coyote you don't kill and let grow to adulthood will be killing baby deer, turkey, kittens, chickens, and whatever else it can get it's teeth into. So your unwillingness to kill the baby yote results in the death of other "babies".

It is a critter that is just trying to survive, like you and any other critter. Unlike humans though, they don't just kill for killing's sake, only for food. That puts them up a notch above many humans.

First of all yall need to back off Nick........although I do disagree with him on this one but he is a man who has earned the respect of many on this board......which is deserved.


That being said, yes I would eliminate future threats to my quail rabbit, deer population in a minute.

Well said Branch.

As to baby rats . If they are in my house they die. If they are in the wild they get a pass.

Gave some serious thought to this. I feel it depends on what I see in the scope. If they are just puppies and the parents are killed, the chances are the pups will not survive either. Probably would not kill the pups. But through the scope 100 or 300 hundred yards away it may be difficult to determine if they're pups, grow ups or full grown. I would let my conscience decide for me whether or not to squeeze the trigger at the time. BUT, my yote hunting should be that good.

If I could figure out a way to kill every last one of them, I would. I shot a female coyote that obviously still had pups (milk sacks were full) once. I searched the area trying to find her den, but couldn't. I fully intended to wipe it out if I could.

I personally have no issues killing a yote of any age. They have really hurt our deer and turkey population so why wait for a young one to grow up and kill something before you hunt it. It's not like they have respect for us. Yotes are so difficult to kill you can't waste any chance.

No disrespect was intended. Had Nic said "coyote pups look and remind me too much of dog pups for me to kill them" would have been okay. Those of us that are dog lovers can understand that. But coyotes, like feral cats in the U.S., have moved into the "pest" category. It is long since time that we realized that the cuddly immature forms of these animals grow up and terrorize environments that they were never supposed to exist in. Save a feral kitten, kill a song bird. To save coyote pups means that you *are* indirectly contributing to the deaths of other animals... animals that DO belong in Georgia's ecosystems. To equate killing of coyote pups with "killing babies" is just plain misguided.

now if I can SHOOT 'em and make a HUMANE kill then I would have no problem killing them (pups)...I just wouldn't ever kill anything by poison, gassing, "treble hooking" or some of the other ignorant suggestions I've read in dealing with coyotes...humane kill vs cruelty is pretty much the barometer for my conscience.
