Default Hunting the Wrong Spots

I'm out in the dark and rain, and the coyotes are in my driveway.

Ain't that the way things usually run from Coyotes to deer?

Amazing with all that humane odor, and foreign smells they still come close.

The coyote may have smelled the neighbor's chickens and stray cats.

I think coyotes that live around people are totally used to people stuff smells. It's their environment. Doesn't spook them at all. But they can smell the difference between what was there five minutes ago and isn't there now, vs. what is there now.

But coyotes in settled areas, some of them anyway, are totally adapted to making an easy living off human activity. Eating left out pet food, left out pets, garbage, etc. All coyotes are individuals and you can never paint them with too broad of a brush, but some definitely become extremely comfortable with people smells and activities.

Lets face it it is the Hoppes # 9 that spooks them when we're hunting them

As a trapper I agree 100 %. I have seen where a coyote was approaching one of sets dead on and without missing a step start to circle at 20 ft out. and do a half circle around it, got directly in line and continued going straight away. Snow was over a foot deep. All my tracks were swept clean by high winds. But he new it was there. Other times I saw tracks of serval dogs come running across a field stop dead 8/10 ft. out turn and go back not want to cross my trail. and yet other times I would have one walk in my tracks. But a coyote will always step in a coyote track.
