If they want it to be effective they better pony up more than a couple of bucks a coyote. Anything less than an amount that would make ANYONE shoot one on sight would just be a "see, we tried it and it don't work" exercise.

If you were in a deer stand in mid november and one ran out would you end the hunt (practically speaking) for 10 dollars?

Now what if it was 300 dollars?

Having said that, someone told you something that I wouldn't put much stock in.

If they do it will be a county by county type thing. Mitchell county has a bounty on beavers. $25 per tail. Why could'nt they do something like that for the yotes?

Don't hold your breath, the State doesn't have enough money to pay their employees let alone spend money on something that has been proven not to work.

If I send you the tails from the ones I trap, we'll split the profit, Right?

yes T i think most deer hunters would go ahead and put the yote down i know i would, and i was talking to the guys at the camp next to me last weekend and one guy said he let a 8 point go just to shoot the yote he seen at the same time.

The insurance companies would never stand for it. Coyotes are doing to the deer population what the insurance industry has been trying to legislate for years..........reducing the herd. At the statehouse, your insurance money is used to buy favorable results (for the industry, not for you).

The bounty thing in this day and time won't work in fact it has never worked or we would still have one . if you want good quality deer then we should kill every yote we see. 80% of the fawn population is killed in the first 8 weeks by yotes. An animal cant differentiate between gunfire or thunder so shoot them off your stands it will help you in the long run. We can thin them out a little but you won't eradicate them .

I am sorry i for got to list the game birds.
UGA did a study last year in north GA and NE. AL. two 10k ac. tracks of land the had a trapping co. out of TN. clean out 25 yotes, 6 cats, and 12 fox. the controlled area had a better fawn rate then the uncontrolled area . they did DNA testing and several trail cams and video cameras .
There is an article in the predator extreme this month on predation.

iv been told that there already is a bounty in the atlanta area counties on coyotes, just that anywhere with woods that you might be able to actualy try and hunt is private so the bounty doesnt realy do anything. i have no idea on the truth to that though, might be old or made up, idk.

No bounty exists in Georgia for coyotes......... However, if one did develop in the future, it would change my time spent calling coyotes from "hobby" to "part time job"..LOL COYOTE X

why doesnt the state allow coyote hunting year round on wmas thats what i dont understand im just gettin into the calling thing and have been reading every law there is on wmas and they only allow it during other seasons seems like they would allow guys the opp all year.prob why its hard to run RABBIT ON WMA TOO.the way i read is during most of the hunting seasons with the weapon of that season ie if during small game only with small game weapons ie 17 or 22 or shotgun with 2 shot or smaller .seems they would let guys blast these things year round with at least centerfire 22.stupid to me why they look at yotes and hogs as a shoot em if ya see em type thing//// get rid of em
