I agree with cm9. Find 'em in the same area season after season. Why? Like uncle buck stated, Food, Water, Shelter. That usually means cover, the thickest, remote place around.Have always heard coyotes are “active” travelers, but I hear folks talking about hunting specific farms or areas.
What’s the skinny?
How long are they in the area after they return from 2 weeks?Big woods dogs must be different. Where camp is in the mountains when deer hunting sometimes you will go 2 weeks without seeing a track in the snow then bam the entire mountain is covered in tracks and they are howling all night long. It seems they are either there or they are not. But when they are there it’s not just 1 or 2 it’s a pile of them. Seen as many as 9 travel together already. Days when coyotes are abundant up there you can bet on not seeing any deer.
