There isn't many places for them to go as it is very agricultural around here, and has clumps of houses. My neighbor has a small woods (I mean SMALL) so they could be in there, but I have no idea. I will probably check the banks of the creeks for footprints

They do. Very often AS they are being born. They do the same to deer and antelope. They are just doing what coyotes do, but nobody just lets that happen without trying to stop them.

I often set snares on the perimeter of our calving grounds to keep the numbers down.
