Since I purchased the farm 10 years ago, it seems the coyote population in the Southeast has exploded as fast as Larry’s belt buckle at an all-you-can-eat China buffet. At first, coyote sightings were a novelty around the farm. We were used to seeing them on Saturday morning cartoons and in Native American folklore, but we really knew nothing about them. Their arrival brought more questions than answers. What effect will these dogs have on the deer herd? How do these adaptive predators fit into the overall land management equation?
