Default At the edge of my yard this morning.

As long as they are after mice and rats I can coexist.

Umm, no, no coexist with me, my wife's dogs would be a tasty morsel and they devastate the fawns, and all manner of game animals.

What did you use to take the pics, they look professional.

I'd love to have'em in my neighborhood they could have all the cats they could catch.

Using a low end Sony DSLR with a 300mm lens. When taking the pics the coyote was only about 50 yards away.

I would have put 1 in the head or chest.

I'd like to have'em hanging on the wall in my den.

Not the coyotes, the pics. Great shots.

ME too. Since they moved in we haven't seen or heard any foxes, then fox den just over hill hasn't been use in many years. No more meadow larks, killdeer, whippoorwills, quail, very few turkeys anymore. Feral cats got some too but they have been greatly thinned out too. Rabbits close to the house are a rarity anymore. They used to eat corn under the birdfeeder, but rarely now. NOPE, got no use for coyotes. Our 3 lil dogs would be no match for one. CHARLIE.

Thanks for the compliments on the pictures. I enjoy taking them and living where I am given the opportunities.

Great pictures, Guzz. I have plenty of coyotes, they just don't come around in daylight. I hear them almost every day mostly very late or very early, sometimes off in the distance and sometimes very close. I just don't see them because of the tall grass and bushes. There is usually a fox or two in residence but I only see them at night by my wife's security light or very early in the morning. I'm sure there would be more birds around without the two species but there would also be more of the unwanted like rats and mice. I'm happy with the mix. There is even a neighborhood cat that I call Garfield that comes around once in awhile. He doesn't bother anything and I've never seen him attempt to hunt or catch anything.

They are very good pictures Guzz! There is a knack for what you do. It's just that I spent all day last Friday and Saturday building brood pens for 500 little baby pheasants that we have coming in over the next month or two. I hate knowing that 25% of them will end up coyote food.

The good Dr that lives on the NW corner of town has sheep so he hates coyotes. He recently dug up a den on his property that contained three little collars. 2 appeared to be cat collars and one a smallish dog! Too many of any predator is not good and we are at that point here!
