They would tie down electric fences also so their dogs wouldn't get shocked...so peoples cattle got out. They would rut up farm ground and pretty much just drive across anything they wanted.
They screwed up several hunting spots for us just because some of the landowners figured we were from the same town so they wouldn't let us hunt anymore.
I'm sure it's fun and all but this group really got a bad reputation in this area...we started calling the sherriff on them everytime we saw them after awhile.
That's pretty common and a pretty big reason why so many land owners don't like coyote hunters and take it out on all hunters by not allowing ANYONE on their land. We've had gates left open, new seeding torn up, and one afternoon, while sledding on the back side of our farm, a couple of trucks roared over the hill and jumped out to shoot over us at a coyote they're run into our pasture. They didn't...but it's a problem.
