Contact game and fish, when the populations get bad here, they send out hunters in helicopters....... 

If they did that around here, the sky would be full of helicopters everyday and F&G would never do anything but coyotes. . . It's unreal--twice we've been in the barn feeding and found one in a stall. Both times they were puppies and unbelievably mangy. I was terrified for my horses and some disease they might catch. Horses weren't the least but concerned with them. (Our horses are only stalled for feeding, so they weren't in there at the same time.)

Ha! Well ok-someone needs to get a ginormous gun! And maybe a few dead critters to lure them in and knock them off.

get you some livestock guardian dogs...
I have a donkey he doesn't do much to scare the coyotes.  - but I have 2 lgd's and they keep the coyotes away from my goats... best breed in my opinion is a anatolian/akbash cross....  they are very loyal and hate coyotes... they are short haired, very hardy in winter (they love winter) .  yes they may bark at night, but that is how they deter the coyotes... the barking does not bother me... they are working and they patrol at night, sleep in the day unless the goats are out grazing... they are wonderful dogs...  check them out. but be prepared to pay some $$.

We have a huge coyote problem, too! I have been thinking of getting a livestock guardian dog, I wonder if some of you with experience could help me with some questions about the breed. I am leaning toward the Anatolian. I know that I need to raise them from a pup, in the pen with the chickens/geese/goats/and have them around the horses when I’m outside. But, my house dog has a doggie door. Are Anatolians so driven to be with their livestock that they won’t just follow my house dog inside? Or, is that expecting for too much from this breed? Also, once they learn their boundaries, are they good at sticking close to home without running off too far, chasing coyotes. I know I need to spend the first year exposing them to livestock and walking the perimeter of the property, my hope is that they won’t want to leave that perimeter once they’re properly exposed to it?

Your best best is to learn how to snare them but you'll have to keep pets out of there. There are different kinds you can set. Some will kill them instantly, some will just hold them until you can come shoot them. Those are what I'd use Incase you catch a local pet.

Please don't poison them or try to clog up their guts. They are bad animals but still need to be humaine about things. Plus who knows what else will eat that poison.

Calling them is not very successful, you may get lucky now and again but usually not. Also depends where you are in country. Western coyotes respond better then the ones up here in the North. Why I don't know.

I have solar lights in my kidding pens they have done wonders. Last two years no lost kids due to fox, coyote or big cats.  We have 8 dogs they cover a lot of land and 2 donkeys that always stay with our replacement kids. Buy a dog that comes from a proven pair and get your pup young and place with you herd. Keep 'em in the pasture don't let them come around your yard. They need to bond to the animals more than you. I like to handle the dogs so I do a bit of work with them while young.
