Trap?

 

Just shoot em

 

I have a method but cant post it.  If you have a serious infestation and some bait, you'll figure it out.

You will be very hard pressed to trap them.  Snares and let holds are the best methods for trapping if you do go that route.  I don't like snares, they kill indiscriminately.  A cushioned leg hold is an option, they too don't discriminate, but at least they don't kill.

I was just curious, as I did some trapping in my teen years and enjoyed it. Of course, the only coyote we saw were in the cartoons, and he was always chasing a roadrunner. Thanks for your replies.

I've trapped a fair share of coyote over the last ten years. Snares are my choice. Make sure they are legal in your area. Also make sure they are the correct size and don't forget to use deer stops. If you set them correctly you won't catch non-target animals for the most part. A stray dog is about the only animal (again if the trap is correctly set) you might catch. As of yet all my animals were alive when the traps were checked. Keep in mind the traps need to be checked every 24 hours.
