Pittsboro, NC - There have been a lot of people posting about coyote sightings. As at least one person has mentioned, coyotes are very dangerous animals and if coyotes are in your area and you have small children, please do not leave the children alone outside.
Coyotes are not native to North Carolina. They were introduced to North Carolina to help keep the deer population down. One reason you don’t see hardly any large deer is because the coyote population has exploded. Coyotes will track pregnant doe deer and kill the fawns when they are born. Coyotes have no natural enemy. Coyotes are killing machines — that’s all they live for.
For these reason and more, myself and a couple others I know have just recently started gathering data and are now starting to hunt coyotes. NC Wildlife Commission has given hunters permission to hunt coyotes all year long. Very few hunters actually hunt coyotes — at least that’s what I’ve seen. Due to the intelligence of the coyote, hunting will never eliminate them. I’ve spoken with NC Wildlife Officers in Chatham County and in Alamance County and they have confirmed that coyotes are a very large problem and that any farmer would probably give permission to hunt coyotes on their land.
If anyone has land that they feel may have coyotes and would give hunting permission to responsible hunters to hunt on your land (only for coyotes), please contact me. I am a North Carolina, hunted all my life, and in my Army days I was in 7th Special Forces Group. If I am given permission to hunt coyotes on your land, my actions would be very safe.
