They're back

Recommended Posts

Haven't heard or seen a single coyote for the last three weeks. Well the little buggers have picked the last two nights to show back up. Soon as the Temps hit 30 they came back. Both dogs started going nuts tonight and last night. 

I grabbed my trusty Glock and flashlight and walked outside. I started down the driveway after greeting my noisy dogs and looked to my right. I saw 3 pairs of eyes shining back at me. One set about 25 yards off. The other two sets about 50 to 60 yards off. All of them in the wood line past the neighbors gravel driveway. I crept forwards knowing they could see me as well as I could them. The two furthest retreated back further. The closest one watched me until I was about 15 yards from it. Then trotted off. I wasn't particularly interested in taking a shot with the glock from 15 yards out. (Seeing as he wasnt being threatening towards me or anything.) The other things being having to go walk him down if I hit him, and then having to dress him and all that fun stuff. It was cool getting to see him kind of up close though. 

Not that I'm wide awake. I'm tempted to dress out, wake the wife and go nestle down beside porch out of the wind. See if I can't call them back in. My .308 will drop him close so I shouldn't have to track him down. Only problem is, I really don't feel like skinning out a coyote tonight if I do get them to come back. Decisions decisions......

Kill em.. kill em all. They were screaming by my place a couple weeks ago . Maybe 8 to 10.

They really tick the dogs off too.

Gotta hand it to you.. I would have unleashed that glock @ 15 yards..

Good luck tonight.

There are a bunch of them out and about where I live. They are extremely intelligent and adaptable. If I can ever get her father to ease up on his fears of me shooting a neighbors dog. (Because apparently, all dogs and coyotes, look the same at night. I know go figure.) Then I can most definitely start hunting them at the house more. Currently I am having to be opportunistic about hunting them. You know just going for a walk around the property with my rifle and flashlight while dressed in camo. I'm half tempted to start taking my wife's crossbow out with me. At least then there isn't a gunshot to give away what I'm doing. :devil1::devil1::devil1:

Kill them all, toast them. My dog goes crazy at night sometimes. I look outside but see nothing. I got a trail cam for Christmas. The misses set it up near the bird feeders for three days and nothing showed up on it. Next it's going up in the back where there is a heavily used trail. I'm thinking the 400lb bear may show up on it. No turkeys, no deer yet that's odd.  

Im stuck in the house yet.

We have some where I live, only they are quiet.  You don't know they are around until you see one.

DNR guy told me to take some braided line and big old treble hook. Tie it on to a low hanging tree limb to where they would just have to just jump to get it. Bait it with a piece of cheap steak.

 

I asked if that was legal and he said there was not a DNR guy in the state that would not shake your hand

Sounds quite similar to a wolfs angle.

Currently I'm debating between popping them with a .223 and making a coat. Or hitting them with a .308 or 45-70 and making them splatter. Either way it's win win. Kinda leaning towards the coyote coat though.
