So far the only coyotes I have caught are big adults, one third females, no pups, maybe distemper or something killed them

We've had distemper going on here for a couple of years. Lots of reports of sick/dying coyote and grey fox in peoples yards. Coyote catch dropped off considerably and I observed the same thing with large adults and few young.
Now grey fox are gone, have not caught one this year. Coon are also very scarce. Have caught 4-5, where usually 20-30 incidentals in coyote sets. But Red fox have exploded, possibly due to low coyote numbers? May end up with more reds than coyote for the first time ever in this area.

In the north here we have had an uptick in coyote numbers for the first time in a very long time. Less wolf sign this summer at least until lately.
I see Rick Olson also has plenty of coyotes this year he is a ways north and west of here. Hopefully it's those good looking dogs that are moving down.
We'll see in three weeks or so when I start calling.

First coyote, big male with poor fur, he had a .22 or shotgun hole in leg, bloody leg
Second one first of two snared on a long running fence, runs between two wet land areas, adult male
Third another big adult male, he would only lay on the ground and glare at us, like I don't like you being this close to me and that stinking dog has to go!!
First picture, Lacy looking for coyotes, we are on a hill, can see for a good mile.
Fourth picture is a nasty sick looking coyote, I have caught 5-6 here in last 4 years that were nasty, brown kinky, thin hair, sticky, smells like dead sewage or hog filth, I don't know what it is , it's only place I've seen it, there's a big ugly brown male here too, he needs to die
Then picture 6, a big female maybe bloody leg coyotes mate, I can't remember how many females I have caught over the years on this flat set, a lot, some big males too.
Next two of my grandsons went with on Sunday, I snared this medium sized male, he is between dog and kids, then grandson's picture of the young male.
The last coyote a big aggressive female, two this year tried to grab Lacy, they ment business too!!
Last picture some kind of red berries or seeds, not sure what they are

Sorta like lice, but no nitches on the fur, surprising how long it's lasted, thought I killed them all
