Coyotes in the swamp??

Reply
Took a ride to Maurepas swamp just to get out the house and while I was there I saw what looked like a coyote track. I don't think anyone would have had a dog where I was so I don't think it was that but it is possible. Has anyone ever seen a coyote in a cypress swamp like maurepas before, it was on a really high ridge so there was a lot of dry ground.

I have hunted that area for almost ten years now, and I can tell you this much: there are good numbers of coyotes out there, but there are even more lost deer hounds.

They are out there but I don't know about large numbers of them. Probably a few around 51 and along the interstate but not too many around Reserve Canal and Blind River. My buddy has a trail cam pic of one on the ridge. My guess is they patrol the ridges along the bank and never venture into the swamp. Im sure they may chase a fawn into the swamp but probably never go snooping around in the water.

We killed 5 coyotes this season in the spillway. At night you can sometimes hear them yelping and there's more than just a few of them. We kill every one that we get shots on. They eat any animal they can get to. Deer, rabbits, etc.

There is now at least one family of coyotes living on the spoil banks along Wilkinson (aka Myrtle Grove) canal south of Myrtle Grove. We have heard them last June along about a mile north of the north end of the bay and also - the past fall - just south of our camp that is located just south of Bay Laurier on the canal. I think it is safe to say coyotes are now everywhere. They are extremely adaptable creatures.
