I agree with Tug, eyeball tests, reverse population trends (more fox), tracks and trail cameras tell the story. While we've got coyotes around in my area I believe the increase in hunting pressure has resulted in a localized downward trend in the population, for now.

That article is from 2011and I believe there was a study concluded in the 2010s which supported that theory. Since then, predator hunting has gotten increasingly popular, and effective. It has to have a result.

Still, getting rid of coyotes and staying rid of them are two different things. They will come back if a food source is available, and thus hunters have to keep the pressure on them.
