How close to active residences do you guys catch em?

Got one within a hundred yards last year.
It was on an APPROACH to poultry.

Cutting wood there the other day and there's tracks at that old burn circle.

Not sure if bolder, or more of them, or??
Oh and no poultry there now.

Side thought, Pay heed to safety zone laws folks. I have permission there and it is legal.

I heard one howl in my front yard one night and it's not uncommon for me to see tracks within 100yds of my house. Most wild animals don't pay houses any attention around these parts.

I have read that the outskirts of residential areas, city limits, etc. will often see higher levels of coyote activity. This is in part due to converging features such as major highways and railroads which act as territory boundaries. While residential coyotes do make the news occasionally, the premise of this concept is that they would follow these boundary features and then skirt the edge of town instead of running down main street.

I have seen this enough to believe it is true. Trapping so close to residential areas is usually asking for trouble. But the same animals can be caught further away from town but following those same features.

Just my opinion.

I catch many animals very close to town. Bobcats, fox, coyotes, and Coons. Some of the best fur Iíve caught likely lived off city trash and pets.

This coyote is 25 yards from their front door in the windbreak.

These two coyotes were my best coyotes that year. 100 yards outside city limits.

This was my best producing coon feeder. Right on city limits. 25 coons in right around 21 days.

You have to be prepared to release animals youíre not looking for but the animals never forget an easy meal.


Eventually everything must die.

My buddy was racking the scraps off their dinner plates off his back porch and started having problems with coyotes coming down and eating them so I set some traps 25 yds from his back door and caught two

I live in the country but have caught three in what I consider my back yard. They usually are are the first ones I catch the past two years. Within a hundred yds or less of my back door.

As long as there are not dogs around, using snares to keep from catching farm cats, you would be surprised how many yotes are caught within 100 yards of homes in the country. Just got a female snared. My neighbors mention often coyote tracks in their yards. They have darkness, weeds or brush, and they are there people or not.

On my property down low near the road I see nothing but fox tracks. As you get higher into the hills and forest it transitions to coyote tracks. They seem to avoid houses and building here. Perhaps because it's on the edge of a 65,000 acre wilderness area. The view in the photo is facing west. It is 5 miles to the first road and that is just a gravel road.

I grew up in NY. It has beautiful geography. If it wasn't for the high taxes, crappy weather, and high unemployment situation at times I might still be there. Moved to Illinois. Went from the fire into the frying pan.
The country archeryguy lives in I would consider the nicest part of the state, IMO.

I do feel blessed living where I do except for the high taxes and the anti-2nd amendment communist governor. With that said, having hundreds of acres in the midst of one of the largest State Parks in the country makes it more than bearable.

Out of eight check nights on eight acres I live on I caught nine coyotes, one coon, and one possum. All the traps are within 150 yards from the house. Some nights I could shine a flashlight before I went to bed and see that I had catches. I just looked on onXmaps and there is approximately 50 houses in the 640 acre one mile section. Arkansas River bottoms and more agricultural area is about four miles away.

I always have one set in my backyard. Fun to check when I let the dogs out each night and have caught one each year there. Funny though it was the first night last year and second this year. They must quickly learn not to come by my house come fall.

That photo I posted of the beautiful fall morning deserved a follow up photo that I took yesterday. I couldn't imagine living someplace that did not have different seasons.
