I am seriously considering hiring a pro trapper this year as I dont have the time.

What is the cost?
By animal?
By pelt?
By acre?

Any recommendations on folks?

We have really seen an increase in deer activity, and numbers. If we could limit the predators we would probably have our numbers back to where we want them, and feel comfortable shooting a few does!

Let me know! Thanks ALL!

Your best bet would be to find someone who is looking for property to trap. A nuisance trapper will charge you per animal and a coyote will probably run anywhere from $100-150 for each one caught, and I might be on the low side on that price. Only reason I have an idea of nuisance trapper prices is because my buddy does it, I know he charges $75 for a coon, and people pay it lol.

YW. Hope it works out for you. Their main page has a 'problems with wildlife?' section that has a link to a list of trappers. Some may want to charge but I don't know for sure. I know when I was on the forums there were guys who looked for trapping land because they were after the fur. Let us know what happens.
