Trapping is the most effective way to put a dent in them. I live too far from my camp to get there more than once a week, so it wouldn't be ethical for me to trap. Instead, I shoot everyone I can, and encourage other members to do the same. Deer hunters hate yotes too.
You will have to do the same thing we did. Learn to live with them. They are here to stay, Texas has done everything under the sun to get rid of them and they still got as many as before. Trapping and shooting will help for a little then they have another litter and the circle starts over. JMO.
