    I've seen at least 3 coyotes on the 80 acres I deer hunt. I'm sure there are more. I want to get rid of them, or at least some of them. However, I have no clue what to do with a dead coyote. I don't really care to have a coyote mount in my house, so what do I do after killing them?

    You can try to find someone that wants them for their pelts. I am pretty sure they won't want them with the huge holes your arrows put in them. Someone may slam me for this but I leave them lay, or if they are in a field drag them into the woods. There is a a lot of other critters that gota eat!

    I would ask the land owner what his/her preference is if your hunting private land.

    Mine get pelted out when I switch to the .204 / 22-.250 come late Jan. I have a guy local that takes them off me. Best part is I don't have to do anything with them other then get them in the truck! Nasty dogs...

    Anyone know if keeping a dead coyote around will bother the deer? Didn't know a dead coyote would keep other coyotes away.

    we always dragged them away from our stands and let them route. but, as I get older I realize that I wouldn't mind have a pelt. so if I get the shoot I'll take it now

    What a beautiful mount. I have never seen a coyote shoulder mount. I think I may do this myself if i shoot one this year. If you dont mind me asking, roughly what did it cost to have a coyote shoulder mounted like that?

    I skin them out for the pelt. I have two in the freezer I just haven't gotten around to curing yet.

    I will not even waste an arrow on one. I will plug one and leave it for the birds with gun! I guess I can always put one of my old alumi arrows in my quiver for a yote!

    I think I'd like one pelt on my wall but after that I'd leave them lay. They are a natural predator of just about every game species with an out of control population and need to be killed. I gut shot one once along time ago and since then have been busted trying to draw on two more. Those things are much more weary than a whitetail, at least in my experience, I move my hand about one inch really slow and they stop trotting stare at me and take off running.

    I turn one target into 4. Shoot one and when the others come out to see what the deal is, I shoot them.
    ;)

    Seriously, I've always left them laying. But, seeing some of the mounts or hides tanned, might not be a bad idea. My little 223 isn't gonna leave too big of a hole.
