Congrats on your doe and the great write up. Also congrats on having the control to pass up the 300 yd doe. On the last day, many people don't have that level of self control.
Is there a season on the yotes, or are they considered a pest that can be taken at anytime? Good game management needs some predators, but not too many.
Coyotes are invasive in this part of the country, so the season is year-round, with no limit. I've been noticing a lot more of them over the past year and a half. Like any other species, they have their population highs and lows, but this is the most I've noticed them as long as I can remember. Thankfully, I know some guys who know how to call them in. If duck season doesn't get any better, we're going to start hunting them hard, even if I have to break out the rifles to do it.
