Yeah, I hear that a lot that the southern coyotes are hit hard. I don’t think that they get hit any less hard up this way. Around here everyone carries a rifle in their truck and coyotes are shot on sight. I think maybe that the coyotes may be a little harder to catch in the prairie and that has a lot to do with that kind of talk.

The biggest difference is that there is waaaaay more coyotes in central Alberta than southern. There is way more food supplies in central and this creates/supports the heavier coyote populations.

All this talk, this going back and forth has been very insightful. Thanks alot! U guys keep the trapping community alive.. I hope everyone learned a little. Baiting is important. And there are definitely some right and wrong ways to do it. Everyone seems to have their own little tricks. I'll figure out what works for me this season and stick to it.. I'll take everything u guys said and talked about and basically keep in the back of my mind as I get out their after harvest.. Thanks again. Can't wait for trapping/hunting season. Cheers.
