So, why take a coyote? Mule deer fawns are the coyote’s main prey. Therefore, to give deer fawns the best protection, coyotes should be taken to another location during certain times of the year to give the mule deer fawns the best possible chance of survival.
St. George, UT is one of the best areas to take coyotes. It will help reduce the chance of fawns being killed by coyotes when they are released again. Compensation for taken coyotes will be issued after September 1st.
