CutNRun took my reply. Coyotes do take many fawns but many of these fawns are dead or abandoned by their mother because of their chance of survival was low. I also think fawns are dropping right about the time last years pups are trying to make it on their own and establish their own territory. All things happen for a reason and nothing goes to waste in nature. Man invented waste. They need the food just like all the other animals on Gods green earth. I do hunt coyotes alot during the off season and enjoy the thrill of being the one that is getting hunted while calling as a dying prey animal. Coyotes do get out of check at times and can really do a number on deer and especially turkeys. A farm I used to hunt about 10 years ago was so full of turkeys it was nothing to see a flock of 50 or more in the fields. Then the yotes came. We didn't see a turkey on that farm for 5 years. We began hunting the yotes and at that time the state of Missouri even toyed with the idea of putting a bounty on the yotes. That was not uncommon just a few decades ago. Missouri never did but they did try to influence hunters to pursue them. The turkey numbers have improved on that farm but it still has not fully recovered. In my opinion, the coyotes have their place in our woods if their numbers are held in check and sometimes, the deer, turkeys, rabbits, squirrels, and even the coyotes need our help.
