Frustrated


So I have been talking to the people around me for about 4 years trying to get them to let me trap trying to sell it as a service for both of us like it is but I keep getting constantly refused for all 4 years. Now some of my neighbors are loosing livestock to the coyotes and they call the ODNR to trap them. This seems like such a waste, for me and for the state. Why should the ODNR spend time money and resources on this when these people are given ample opportunity to handle the problem in another way that would have been no burden on the state or themselves. This seems like a waste of money and time by the ODNR for people who refuse help otherwise. Very frustrating!

As far as I know the ODNR does not employ trappers. If a person calls in a complaint they will refer a trapper but they are not state employees

Like Ric says, if it's not a referral to a licensed nuisance trapper it's not an ODNR employee, but it could be a USDA Wildlife Services trapper, a landowner might call them DNR.

Well at least it is not our state doing the trapping. Hopefully they don't get them all and save some for me.
Not as frustrated as I was anymore just disappointed I guess.

If it is a USDA trapper you should check with them on there policies. I do not know what they are in Ohio. I do know that when I am in N.M. that if I move on to a section of private property they are required to leave.

You need to look at it from the property owners point of view also.. This is an ADC situation. They don't want someone learning to eliminate coyotes on there dime. Learn to kill coyotes effectively and get a reputation and references, should ease your problem
