White-tailed deer fawns, by their youth and size, are an easy target for most coyotes.

Georgia researchers are taking part in a two-year study on coyotes in the Southeast.

Researchers in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina hope to figure out how to protect the fawn, to some extent, by studying coyote behavior.

“We would potentially try to see if we could make alterations to the environment to change how coyotes are behaving thereby influencing the probability that they will prey on fawns,” says Dr. Michael Chamberlain, a professor of Wildlife Ecology at the University of Georgia.

Get out there and start shooting coyotes-every ‘yote you take gives a fawn a better chance of surviving it’s first year-the fawn that survives the 2015 fawn drop could be the 12 point hanging on your wall in 3 years.

Hunting ‘yotes makes you a better hunter,they are smart,sneaky,can see,hear,and smell you from a long way off-the better you get at shooting ‘yotes,the better deer hunter you become. Hunting ‘yotes lets you practice more than just shooting skills,it lets you practice your camo and concealment,your scent control,your noise discipline,and your stand/blind placement.

Remember-fewer ‘yotes mean more deer live to the 3-31/2 years it takes to produce a deer with good body weight,which means more meat per deer-and it’s the time it takes for bucks to develop a trophy rack.

Don’t forget,you can save the pelts,sell the fur,and cover your ammo,gas,and gear expenses.
