as a trapper and yote shooter, id say if you really wanna kill off the yotes trapping is the best bet. but it takes time and experience/knowledge that few have or care to invest into. if your bush lot has nothing but yote tracks a little while later, then they may have set up a den there, then if you want to see deer hide out there, you better rid yourself of them. as for scaring the deer away just by passing through and setting tracks, id say they arent your real issue. yotes take fawns and scavenge dead deer, but in all my experience id say they are not running down deer and eatting them, they are small mammal and bird hunters, and eat more mice than deer in their lives.
ive had yotes pass through and hours later had deer come through, and the deer know they were there, but they still use their home range - they dont scedadel out just cuz yotes walk by.
as for shooting them, without dogs(i dont use dogs) use calls but pay very close attention to wind and travel direction(make sure your not trying to call them in over your own tracks even though the wind is right for your "shot"), and hide very good. if they are call at a lot, forget calls and use a deer carcass and a blind/tower with a heater and its a waiting game. make sure you wire/stake down the carcass or they will haul it away!! and not come back with any regularity. its hard buissness but if you can set out snares in snow covered trails and check em daily with binocs , thats your best bet by far.
only if we had antler point restrictions...
try not to become a man of success, but a man of value.
