|goodshot||Llama's do a great job of protecting as well, they don't take any crap from any 'yote.|

The Conibear got a nice male coyote and my 223 got another one over the weekend.
The real difference maker is soon to happen. The farmer bought a three year old Great Pyrenees that has been a sheep guard dog for the last year. That takes the pressure off of me. I have removed 3 yotes from how many ever packs are involved but in doing so they have been educated a bunch. That dog can smell and hear stuff that this old duffer is oblivious to even while sitting on watch wide awake! Besides it's about time to do a garden and catch some fish!

I thought we were killing coyotes?
Amazing what is out there that we don't see, no wonder Bigfoot is hard to catch.
A friend was losing lambs, called in a trapper, got 16 from just the square around his place.

I don't know how it is in yours state but here we have coyotes everywhere and much of the place is state land. Coyotes are an unprotected animal but it's illegal to hunt them on state land unless there is hunting season open and you have a valid license for the species the hunt is for. A trappers license doesn't allow you to hunt coyotes. The state hires coyote control officers and I was told by a rancher that they are charged a coyote control tax. I will never understand how government thinks except to say that most of the time I believe they don't think at all. The federal government is a little smarter when it comes to coyotes. You can hunt them on BLM land and I suppose other federal administered lands but I haven't checked to be sure.

We had a lot of problems with coyotes out at the sub station. They were digging under the fences chasing bunnies. It must have been a couple of them the county caught in some taps. After that we didn't have anymore trouble out of them.
Urenco had a lot of the same problems. There are a lot of Europeans who work at that plant. Who thought
the yotes were just some nice desert critter and they tried to feed them. And they got bit! So Urenco put
up a sign at the main gate. Saying coyotes are a wild animal. Do not attempt any contact with them that
is an unsafe act. And we do not engage in unsafe acts. Duhhh lol.

Well I was out at the lambing farmstead last night at 10 PM and could hear two different dens of pups yapping at the full moon. This afternoon I'm taking Roy, My son's Drahthaar (Maggie) a 12 gauge and a dirt digging shovel and we are going to a little eradicating of them little yappers.
Oldandslow, I admire a spider as he spins his web but if he gets in bed with me the admiration is gone. When I'm deer hunting I get a kick out of watching the field mice playing around an old stump or hollow log but if they come in the house and put Roy's Purina Pro Plan in my shoes for storage then I'm no longer amused. I suppose there is a place for coyotes.....just not around here and especially not ones that chew barn boards off so that hey can kill lambs. I put a partition between the barn board hole and the lambs and stuck a 220 Conibear over the hole. Come and get em Wiley!

|oldandslow||I look at them as another of God's creatures doing what they were designed to do. God designed them to eat meat and made them very efficient at it and didn't make them choosy about what form it came in. I don't love them but don't hate them either. I kind of admire them for their ability to be able to survive and proliferate in the modern world unlike a lot of animals. They have earned the name Wiley.|

I live in a sub-division about a mile from town surrounded by farm fields and woods with a small river running through the property. A neighbor put a puppy in a small out building and it cried and cried. That puppy called in a coyote and it was running right down the road in the middle of the sub-division. In southern Michigan we have lots of coyotes.
