    'round here I treat coyotes about the same as a mosquito, yellow jacket, or house fly. I smack them quick and smack them hard.
    Yup, I do the same thing to people who abuse animals. First offense, I smack them quick and smack them hard. Second offense is punishable by death, though. Easy to dispose of the bodies when you live next to a reservoir that holds 39 billion gallons of water.

    Lewis: Do know what's gonna be here? Right here? A lake. As far as the eyes can see. Hundreds of feet deep. HUNDREDS of feet deep. Did you ever look out over a lake and think of somethin' buried underneath it? Buried underneath it. Well man, that's just about as buried as you can get

    There used to be a bounty on coyote around here but most people forgot why and the greenie fruits convinced the watermelon(red on the inside) legislature to repeal it. I think it was only a buck a pair of ears, but the bounty was effective.

    There used to be a bounty on wolves 100 years ago and we reintroduced timber wolves to the Midwest. Now all the deer hunters and most of the farmers are getting their lunch ate by predators, but they are the minority. People have forgotten the totality of increased preadator population in favor of a diverse ecosystem, never mind if it is a balanced ecosystem, so long as it has diversity.

    Remember boys and girls- every pet a coyote eats means another whitetail deer that got to live another day. So don't be so selfish, just think of a all the deer you saved next time spot the dog or freckles the cat gets ate. So what if it isn't safe to keep a pet, you got a diverse ecosystem. Isn't that what you asked for?

    That sounds abusive towards humans. Humans are animals, but not the other way around.

    Go fill your pockets with rocks and go for a swim, if you must.

    "There have been a small number of attacks on people in the U.S. and Canada, with most of the attacks involving small children under 5 years of age. Since 3 million children are bitten by dogs every year, your small child is millions of times more likely to get hurt by the family pet than by a coyote."

    Here's the whole article:

    Coyote Attacks On People in the U.S. and Canada
    Nice article. I think that if you don't bother them, they won't bother you, unless they have rabies which is quite rare. Most wild animals that I see run away as fast as they can if they see people. I would probably be out of there pretty quick though if I heard them so close to me, normally I only hear them far off in the distance. I get very scared when I see a loose dog running towards me, growling and barking. I don't carry firearms with me, though I do think it is a wise idea to do so, especially if you are in a bad part of town where you may get robbed. Also, In the unlikely occasion that you get lost deep in the woods, it would help to have some type of firearm in case you need to hunt for food. It also probably feels better knowing that you have some defense in case something happens while metal detecting.

    Good luck at the cellar hole!

    That is a jolly nice article Freebirdtim, but I tried "not bothering the coyotes", and they still bother me raving mad. You see, the coyotes eat about half the deer fawns and most all the rabbits in my area. It does not just bother me, it makes me want to kill. Not because I hate, its got nothing to do with love or hate. I just prefer deer and rabbits over coyote. That's all.

    Metal Detecting
    Not in my county. $20 to renew for five years . . . now. I paid something like $10 in 1976 (plus maybe a $15 fee for the FBI fingerprint check) and it only was a $5 fee to update whenever a new pistol was added since then. This mandatory renewal stuff is new with the SAFE Act in the last few years. (Damn Gov. Cuomo).

    BUT - you do have to complete an eight-hour "class" that cost something like $150 for an unrestricted permit. That's a requirement of the county issuing judge. It was actually a lot of fun (we each shot off over 100 rounds). I took the course through Rochester Personal Defense LLC.

    Note that for a permit for hunting and target shooting (restricted permit) you don't need the course. But the initial background check and fingerprint check is probably a hefty fee now. Again, the fee depends on your county.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I hunt but I don't abuse animals nor humans but at the same time I will not tolerate attacks from either. If either decide to charge on, they will find out the hard way that I am not someone to contend with. Where I hunt and Gold prospect, there are lots of Coyotes, Black Bear, Wild Boar (the mean European Wild Hogs), Cougar, Rattlesnakes, Copperhead snakes, an occasional Grey Wolf and Meth Head and/or Pot Growing Humans. I have been charged by Black Bear twice and had other close encounters with them, been stalked by Coyotes many times and had fairly close encounters with most of the others. I usually hunt and prospect alone and do not go into the woods anymore without some type of protection. That may be my' big Buck Knife, a very sharp Machete, a very sharp axe, a shotgun, a rifle, a pistol or a combination of several of these. I know that some are only protecting their' territory or offspring and I do my best to take these into account when considering whether I can scare them off or if I will have to dispatch them to the next life. When you have walked in someone else's shoes in the areas they live and hunt and have been in similar situations that they have, then maybe you will have a clue on how life really is in some areas.

    I have a 500+ acre field next to my' home and another one across the highway. Currently the one next to my' home is planted with Soybeans and the one across the highway is planted in Corn. There is at least 50 Coyotes in each field every day and night and the property owner like you, will do nothing about them even though they have killed hundreds of livestock, cats, and dogs and countless other small animals and birds in this area. I have grandkids that live with me and we have pets and it is unnerving to have Coyotes howling 5 to 10 feet on the other side of the fence from my' property. I dare you to venture in either field day or night without being armed.
