Winter Coyote Hunting
This winter in North Dakota has been a fun time to be out in the field hunting coyotes. From December through January, I believe the total # of coyotes harvested off the ranch has been over 80. The photo above shows a 5 day span where we shot 17 coyotes.
It always helps to have snow on the ground to eliminate some of their food sources as well as aid in tracking them. Coyotes are very territorial, but when you get rid of the alpha male in one area there will be a new one taking over very soon. They are constantly on the move to find food or new territories.
