New Study Confirms That Coyotes Can Severely Affect Deer Populations
© By Othmar Vohringer
Read a great article by Tim Burton on outdoornews.com. A new study revealed again that coyotes have a severe impact on whitetail deer and their behaviour.
I wrote about coyotes and the negative impact they have on our deer herds back in 2012 and it seems that each consecutive study comes up with the same results.
Here is my article from 2012 and here you can read the article written by Tim Burton “Do whitetails alter their habits to avoid coyotes.”
It is my long standing opinion that every deer hunter and deer conservationist must make time during the hunting season, or at any other time of the year*, to hunt coyotes.
(** Some areas permit coyote hunting throughout the year with no bag limits)
