I'm not a pro, and I'm not as good as some, But I do manage to kill a "Few" coyotes a year. We have made 66 sets with out a coyote. Be for that we had a string of about a month with nothing, I did shoot one that broke that string but it must have been a Flook.
We see very little sign and a few tracks sometimes. The lack of rabbets seam way out of place too.
We seldom see any road dogs, seen from the truck. 
LOTS of hawks and owls, And way above numbers of crows.
I don't know if any of this is related to the lack of coyotes.
We have been hunting 100% public land, but most of it is very remote with little to no farming/ranching we can see.
During deer hunting we would hear some, sometimes but not anything like normal. The road kill and gut piles have birds all over them but seldom a coyote track. There not "Hanging up. there just not coming in. I don't know what to think. It's there rut right now and we still are coming up blank.
I just don't know what's going on.

I suspect there just aren't many coyotes around.

Lack of food? The rabbits had a BIG die off from some disease , except around my house I still have tons.

I have not seen or herd of any thing affecting coyote like distemper but maybe.

HUMMM
I'm baffled.
