Are coyotes getting warier?
Reason I ask is because years ago, 2005-2006, we lived in North Dakota, just east of Minot, and I saw a lot of coyotes out during the day while I was scouting for ducks and geese.
Now, further east of Minot, I never hardly see any out during the day. I think since we lived here I've seen only three coyotes out, moving during the daytime.
I know they're around. I see plenty of tracks and poop, and I walked over here west of my house one night and howled, and and five different coyotes answered me from five different points of the compass.
I know there's a lot more hunting pressure on them now, and everybody takes a shot at them when they spot one. So has it made of mostly nocturnal?
Thanks, Dan
