I like the cat idea!

I second the cat idea

In most of the US now, you will have a couple of them per square mile! You can get ahold of calls on tape and play them in a portable tape player to see what comes to the call.

Look for rabbit carcasses with no hawks around OR

Almost hit them going into work around Seattle!

Watch for an unusual number of Acme delivery trucks going by your place.

The most efficient way to find out is to try to raise chickens. If you have a vested interest in them, those darn coyotes will come from three states away to eat them. At least that's been my experience. Feel like hunting them? Nowhere to be found. Have some chickens you like and they chow out of the coop every night.

I'm joking, kind of. The ideas you've already gotten are going to be a little faster. Look for them or signs that they're around. Other than that, you'll have to resort to calling them in or baiting them.

Good luck! They're wily little buggers. And they sure do love chickens. Unfortunately I do too :(

You will hear them. They usually have a "Call of the Wild" around dusk, and it can go several more times into the night.

They leave a dog like (4 point) footprint. Eventually, you will see them at dusk or early in the morning. If you have night vision equipment, you can see them all night long. they travel along trails, so you should see their trail marks.

The most I have ever seen in my backyard at once was 9.

Lots of scat with hair in it. Find it every where all the time. Are you close to otter creek wilderness? My buddy and I are going on a backpack trip there next week. Hows the weather? water levels?

Get in your 4X4, grab one of those rabbit sqeaking tapes (cd), and play it with the windows cracked. I used to hunt coyotes quite frequently when I was still in High School(yes we had chickens, although the possums ate more than the coyotes). You can cover a spot light with red transparent tape and it doesn't really bother them. I don't know where you get the tape, but dad always had it laying around.

i agree with JGO!!!!

for real though, as posted get out in your truck and play some calls with the windows down. and do it more than once. don't put out meat unless you are hunting them, as they will remember it and probably come back for awhile.

If you see something that looks like this, then you probably have coyotes on your property..

I agree with what the others say, if they're out there you'll hear them yapping around sundown. The critters typically cover a couple of miles of country a day and have around 10 miles they claim as thier own personal territory. I guess my point is that you probably have some cross your property quite frequenlty but they may or may not be there on any given day...I also second the cat idea;e

Now you live in the country as tradition you must get an assault rifle, a 4x4, a 1or 2 million candle power flood light. Then get some buddies and start drinking.
From there on out everything falls into place.
500 for bail helps. the only problem is all your real friends are sitting in jail with you.

If you have coyotes, your neighbors will have stories of tied-out dogs being eaten. If you have a dog, don't tie it out. Get it a fence and a good dog house so it can at least have a fighting chance, and it is best to have two dogs, minimum. It is rare for a coyote to eat a big dog, unless it has been tied out. And, I've never heard of them getting two fenced dogs.
