I guess I have a few questions that I cant seem to find easily so any help is appreciated.

I'm assuming this is the time of year when pups are being born (March/April)?

About how long does it take for them to get out hunting on their own or in a group?

Last year I shot a couple young yotes but can't recall the month it was. Maybe it was June because thats about the timeframe I got NV and started hunting them at night.

I've killed 13 since then around my place and thought that would knock them back a notch or two but replacements keep coming. Most of the kills were females so I assume that will keep their population down.

Anyway, just wondering when the young ones will start coming out and become targets.

TIA

Seems to vary a little by region, here typically they are visible around the den during June and starting on their own late July. Some are earlier and I have seen them quite late.
I think gestation is 65-70 days.

Late July will be easy pickens for you on calling in pups, hit them hard.

Clemson University put out a camera by a coyote den in the area. ONE pair of coyotes brought in 22 fawns to the den in one Spring.

Draw your own conclusions on how long it will be before few deer will be left.

Coyotes in N. America pretty much all breed in February. So count two months gestation and you get them born in April. Then it's another two months before they are fully weaned. I've shot young dumb ones in early September when they looked about 5 months old. I kinda feel guilty about it 'cause they seemed like pups.
