View Full Version : Two coyotes

Due to all our hog hunting and butchering, we've had some offal left for coyote bait.

I saw three of the bastards run across the field in front of me while turkey hunting today.

One shot stops? How far?

First 125 yards second right at 210 yards running.

Those dogs cousins look like this after processing
For some crazy reason, I always liked these.

Ew ew, coyote thread. Allows me to show mine from last year. Shot with my 6mm at 366 yds right in the back of the head as it was trotting away from me. Used my rangefinder to get yardage.
:sad: :sad: :sad:
I haven't even gone out yet.....now I'm really bummed...

I think I understand your sentiments. But for me there is a big difference between bobcats for example and 'yotes. I sit and watch bobcats and just can't find the urge to shoot them, yet when the 'yotes come in sight, I can't find the urge NOT to shoot them.
I guess in my simple mind I see the 'yotes as spreading beyond thier range and ravaging all the game birds and animals I seek. I see them as a bigger threat because they reproduce so quickly. I don't see bobcats in the same light, as they are in much fewer numbers in my neck of the woods, although I know they prey on game birds and animals as well. They ('yotes) were the main factor in losing the red wolf in my area. They acually bred them out of "pure" existance.
So you can watch them and enjoy and at the same time, I and many more will hunt and shoot them.
edited to add: I don't think I could shoot elephants or giraffes either, unless self-defense.

Coyotes are as bold as brass here. Be a farmer for a year, then tell me the "noble predator" junk. Walking mange and distemper carriers, typhoid mary's of the dog clan. My american bulldog has the same opinion of them. He's choked out several. Then whizzes on them. You'd really have a high opinion of them if you lost calves to them, or caught them in the act of killing calves. I have, I'll toast every one I see or call in.
" You want some? You get some too!"
Coyotes are disease, tick, flea, and parasite carrying predators that can cost a rancher more than he can afford to lose.
Populations in my area have exploded and along with that comes more calves lost not to mention deer populations being effected by these pack hunters.
No restrictions from the state on hunting sends a clear message of thier importance.
As for seeing them as akin to dogs? If I saw a dog attacking calves, he'd get the same bullet as a coyote.
Hey Jerry, just a mile down the road, north of the Sabine bridge was a freshly hit hog on the shoulder of at least 350 lbs. Black as night sow, except for a white belly. Y'all are breeding some mean critters in dem der woods. By the way, nice visiting with you and your wife. Had a great time and the kiddos say "thanks" for the Winchesters.

they can get their own FALs and deal with it just like we do.
Real men don't kill coyotes, my ASS

Faltitude I really enjoyed our visit! Hope I didn't talk your ear off. Not being able to get out quite as much, I don't get alot of visitors. Could be the remote location here eh? Well here's Bud: http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=114983&highlight=bud
Too bad you didn't get to meet him. He was probably off looking for hogs. Rascal will go without me!

I'm in town, like downtown practically, and we have coyotes walking down the street regularly. They'll easily jump to the top of a six foot fence, and on into a backyard and make the most of pets. Can't let small pets out by themselves even with the block fence. The coyotes wander up to the doors, look in through the glass-probably to see what's for dinner-and are very bold. They just wander off, taking their own sweet time, if you yell at them. Can't do anything serious about them or the city will have a cow. It is interesting.

Problem: 'Yotes in town.
Solution: Silenced .22
Good results, no pissed off neighbors or city officials.

Coyotes are vermin plain and simple. They are thicker than groundhogs in eastern TN now, and they don't mind killing your pets either. They are stealing habitat from the native species. Put a SP in them and let the buzzards clean them up.

They are a nusance here as well. Certain times of year the county holds competitions...largest female, largest male...other catagories.
You also get 15 bucks for each set of ears you bring in.:smile:

Hey Cummins4X4 , nice shooting. I share your dislike for them.I used to hunt them when i worked at a Dairy years ago. I would sit up on a hill and tack them out from 200-300 yrds. I'll be up in a month or two and we'll get together.

Well I got to add one to the count yesterday. Early afternoon I hear my hound dog, Butch for those of you who know him.; starts baying big time. I heard akk that and figure that sounds like a job for Mr Shotgun I had one goat and a kid left until someone bought them last night!Free at last! The coyotes were trying to get the goat and kid during the broad daylight! 00 buck cut short the career of one of the marauders. It was probably 2 pm, they're getting bold as brass here.
