Before I get into my question, I want to say that I am not trying to start a flame war over hunting. I fully understand that not everybody has views that agree, and I am not trying to start a thread about ethics of hunting. Thanks.

My buddy has a pretty bad yote problem, they are always howling and now they are getting his neighbors chickens. I have a hard time killing something and letting it be wasted. My boss said growing up his family made jerky out of them. Has anybody tried this? Or any other way of eating them? I think that most of the cringe you would have reading this is the mindset of eating them, after all, chickens are one of the dirtiest animals out there. I'm not saying I want to eat them, but if his neighbor keeps having problems they are gonna have to go.

I don't have a problem with just shooting them and maybe keeping the pelt.

The only thing I would worry about if someone is planning on eating coyote is parasites in the flesh that you don't know about. They can carry the same worms and skin diseases that domestic dogs have.  Generally speaking we don't eat carnivores for that reason, although the trappers up here claim that cougar flesh is very tasty, and I have eaten bear and find it tender and delicious. As SimplyRad said, I'd just pelt it out and dispose of the carcass.

Deep freeze the skinned carcasses to kill the parasites and give them to a hog farmer, my hogs eat anything. Had a raccoon get in the pen, all we found was the tail!

Definitely not eat them. Parasites can live thru the cooking process. I read that on a couple of trapping sites. Thin them out and tan the hides , they do sell for a few bucks making a little return on the cost. Thinning them will also drive them from the area. Once they precieve the threat to their colony they will move on. Just my take on this.                                                                                                                                                                                                          Roger

Make a cap from the hide and it will sell for good money.

    I have had jerked cougar but not Coyote. The cougar was very tasty. I see people mention not eating carnivores. Almost every thing we eat is an omnivore. Pork and all of the fowl will eat anything they can get down their gullet. When I was in the Philippians I was told about raising dog for food. It was recommended to finish them out for 6 weeks on a strict rice diet. This was to clean them out and make the meat much more palatable. You could google "eating dog"  But you might want to do it where you cant be traced so you don't get put on a PETA watch list or something. Could be worse than home land security.  Don

Bear is the only carnivore I have had before, I think it is pretty good, tastes sweet. Well I guess I will just take the pelts and skulls then!!

As has been said, skin them out, sell the hide.  The better job of skinning the more $$ you take home. Leave the carcass for the rest of the food chain.  The Eagles will find them quick if left out in the open, as well as the crows and hawks.  Won't be nothing left but the bones.  We get several deer carcass after the meat has been bone off and leave out for the rest of the food chain.  Have had as many as 15 Bald and Golden Eagles feeding at one time.

When making jerky all you are doing is drying the meat and not cooking. To kill any parasites you need to fully cook the meat.

A young bear that has been eating oats in the field is hard to beat. Stay away from one that has had access to the garbage dump or the fish cleaning barrel, yucky! Real poplar smoked bacon from a bear is wonderful.

You could make up gift baskets for the season.  How about a  pelt in a basket with a nicely wrapped package of jerky.  Spice it up and brand it as "Howling Jerky"

The problem with trying to get rid of coyotes is you have to get them all. If you just get a couple they will start breeding to make up for it.
