Where to hunt Coyote
Coyotes are the natives of North America and are widespread all over the mainland USA and Canada. You can hunt coyote in just about every state and province, but outfitted hunts tend to concentrate in Texas, Arizona, and Alberta. There are opportunities to hunt coyotes in the East, including New York State, Maine, and New Brunswick, as well.
Dedicated coyote hunts start at about #300-350 per hunter per day. Coyote hunting is often combined with other predator hunts, such as fox and bobtail, or with hog hunting. Combination hunts are somewhat pricier, and may run up to $1,000 and more, in case the of coyote - black bear hunt. The most expensive options are those that involve and include travel to remote areas of the Northern Canada.
When to hunt Coyote?
In most states and provinces coyotes can be killed year round. Their status of vermin doesn’t give them any particular protection. That makes coyotes some of the best “off-season” species, a quarry to pursue when you can’t hunt deer, birds and such. If you want a quality pelt for a trophy, you’d better schedule the hunt for colder months.

By far the most popular method of coyote hunting is calling. The hunters can imitate the voices of coyote’s typical prey, such as rabbits or fawns, or the voices of coyotes themselves. When the canines answer the call, and come to investigate the source of the sound, regardless of whether they perceive it as a potential food source or a trespasser, they are alert, so good concealment is necessary. Many hunt coyotes at night, using night vision or thermal sights. An AR-type semiautomatic rifle for a smaller caliber seems to be a coyote hunter’s top choice.
Why hunt Coyote?
How does a predator hunt, a cull in other words, which some people do for a living, become something other people would like to pay for? Easy - if we’re dealing with such a cunning, wary and intelligent creature as the coyote. Coyote hunters do it to help other species, including deer, to protect pets and livestock, and for furs - while not precisely sable or beaver, a coyote skin has its value, too. But perhaps the thing that drives people to coyote hunting is the contest with a worthy opponent.
