If you manage your property or that of another persons, this is the time of year you need to remove local predator populations so that your fawn crop can survive. All recent scientific studies indicate that coyotes kill at least eighty percent of the whitetail deer fawns annually.
A little math and you will soon realize that your deer herd can not survive this extent of predation. Calling and shooting and trapping are successful methods to reduce predator numbers at this time of year, if legal in your area. If you do not know how to start contact us for a predator management plan for your property.
