    Being manly or having courage has nothing to do with it! It takes skill and the need to cull a predatory animal that is both a danger to livestock, pets and humans as well. I have the skill and weapons to shoot some animals and humans at close to a mile but I have never had to. If rag head terrorists come to kill me or my family, then I will shoot as many as I can no matter how far away they are.

    Wow, the farmer didn't want you on his' property but gave you permission anyway just so he could unleash the bull on you to run you off the property! If you had been armed with a gun, you should have shot the damn bull and ended the farmers foolish pranks.

    20 years ago you never saw coyotes here now we have many. The state has an open season on them and no limit. I have found that what ever you take out just fills back up so I do not worry about the few deer and fawns they eat we have many. It is the wild dogs running and killing the deer for sport that we have a problem with. They will dog a deer until it collapses. We take out the wild dogs every season. I let the coyotes slide they have their niche. The little pets people drop off out in the country not so much. People that drop off animals (pets) in the mountains thinking they will be ok are wrong. I manage over 4000 acs and we keep it well balanced.
    Oh yeah now we are seeing armadillos. Crazy.

    All this coyote talk, might as well put in my 2 cents, I live in Central Oregon, the high Desert, premium coyote country, there are coyote killing contests here, on the radio and all. I live 15 miles from town and have yotes in my back yard, I like having them around if they are not predating on Deer antelope and ELK, which most of their diet is ground squirrel, then rabbits and Quail, we have the rare Pigmy cottontails and I make places for them close to the house, they hurt Nothing..

    Our Rottweiler has a female coyote admirer, she will not leave when he is out in the fenced area, even caught her backing up to the fence, Yeah, I can see why CoyWolfs are getting more prevalent, They are a very different predator, More aggressive and they do stalk humans, more of a curiosity to them I think.

    A Good slingshot is a way to keep them back away from you for you east coast guys or get a snake charmer(.410Ga). Packs of wild dogs are DEADLY but rarely seen here. I lived and Hunted Alaska so Grizzly is one that you must respect or get eaten, Coyote's not so much.

    SMH... Maybe if you hold hands with them and sing Kumbaya they won't kill your chickens, cats, small dogs... Dude grow up and stop trolling every thread that mentions guns. It gets old. Maybe you've not had to console your wife after hearing the coyotes rip her kitten to shreds one night. I have so give it a rest..

    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?
    i can't spit without hitting a dang deer around here

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!
    yeah they usually do leave you alone or scare off easily, but every once in a while they try it to see what happens. Can't wait to get back to that cellar hole, hoping the cold rain today matts the grass down.

    Here in Tennessee they have done DNA testing on coyotes and found that they have been breeding with wolves. Test results showed that they had up to 1/4 wolf DNA in some of those sampled. They are bigger & smarter than ever and it's only going to get worse. One thing I have been told by a friend who studies these sort of things though is that it's not always a good idea to kill the alpha female in a pack. They generally won't allow the other females in the pack to breed but if the alpha is killed the pack will scatter and all the females will then breed and you'll have multiple packs running around when you only had 1 before. Maybe Tnmountains can chime in with actual facts on this ? He seems to know a bit about this stuff.
