    Coyotes cower in a steel trap. Our trapping season starts 11/1. FWIW, bobcats Don't! A 22 short will subdue either.

    "He hit the fence and finally dropped Johnny," she said. The coyotes then stood in the nearby field and stared at the property, Humphrey said"

    It would have been ON! The next night, I would have been out in the yard with some fresh meat hangin' on a hook and the 22!

    Saw a lot of cars going by on a street behind the house in the video. Probable a lot closer to the house than they appear in the video. Using a gun in that neighborhood most likely is not a option. Using a gun is no problem where I live but most likely not where they live.

    We have coyotes here also.When ever I am outside with the dog I carry a 38 snub loaded with 2 rounds of snake shot and 3 rounds of lead.My reasoning is if the snake shot does not deter a potential attack then I have 3 back up rounds of lead.I have not had the opportunity to put my defense plan to the test and I hope I don't have to any time soon but the thing is the revolver is small and light weight and easy to carry even in my pocket.I believe if some kind of incident were to happen the noise from firing a snake shot combined with the yelling and other excitement from the encounter would probable scare an attacker away.At lest I hope that is the way it would go.You just never know when real life happens but some kind of plan is always better than no plan at all.

    You may not believe this, but I actually thanked a coyote once. I was hunting an old creek bed many years ago down here in South Texas when it was legal to hunt that creek with rifles. I had gotten there a little late that morning and didn't really want to walk the mile to mile an half down the creek bed where I normally would go. I had only gone a little past a railroad trestle, half a mile from the Highway and decided to sit by the waters edge. I had only been there about 30 minutes when I heard a big commotion across the creek. A large buck came crashing out of the brush, followed by a coyote close behind. The buck proceeded to jump into the water, to get away from the coyote, and swim across the creek. The buck swam towards me, and about 30 yards behind me and to my left. The buck was on the South side and I was on the North side of the creek when it jumped in. Well as you may have guessed, I took aim, and before the buck exited the creek I put a 165 grain Speer GS into his shoulder from my 30 06. He barely made it out of the creek and dropped. I don't remember if it was an 8 or 10 pointer. But it was a nice large bodied buck. The shot was about 30 yards. Anyway as I looked across the creek the coyote saw me and went back into the brush. I waved and thanked that coyote for chasing that buck in my direction. And folks, that is a true story, and it happened to me. What are the odds of that ever happening again. Probably never.

    Poor old Frufi goes out to do it's business and almost joins the "food chain".

    An acquaintance of my wife recently returned from a photo safari in South Africa. She wa in this van sort of thing with a bunch of millennials. Everyone was enjoying the beauty of the African plains when a pride of lions began taking down a zebra. Evidently the zebra did not go without a fight and there was zebra blood everywhere. Once the zebra was dead, the lion cubs started munching on fresh meat. The millennials were about to loose their cookies. I guess the lions were not yet able to shop at Whole Foods for their protein needs. Can you imagine how things would go if we all got magically transported to the Pleistocene? Many would probably stop worrying too much about global warming.

    Mama would not have any issues with me popping yotes if they were chasing her deer in the back yard. She hated me shooting anything until tree rats tried to share the pool with her. Then is was demanded that the tree rats be dead. Shot 17 with a pellet gun. That would not do for yotes but it would leave one heck of a welt. My pellet gun put a pellet clean through a squirrel from 25 yards. I wonder what it do to a coyote?
