    Chased off by the yotes and skunked.

    So disappointingly enough I had my first hunt last night where I've been skunked. I mean nothing but iron and lead junk skunked.Not even interesting iron like a horseshoe or axe head. Went out for a night hunt at an old cellar hole last night. I was only there about 2 hours, and just after dark I started hearing some yips that I thought first was coming from my headphone. I pull the headphones off my ear and I hear that blood curdling howl that makes every hair stand on end, and only about 25 to 50 yards from me. Yup being hunted by the coyotes again..... So I back out of the woods brandishing my whites ground hog like a crazed lunatic.. Luckily enough I think I got my head up on a swivel just in time and they didn't really do much but make noise at me. I, in the baddest way, really need to get my handgun permit. I shouldn't complain too much though, I've been hunting for 4 years and I have never not come back with at least one interesting item.

    I had one come within 20 yards of me last year, he was hunting downwind and walked right up on me, I drew and whistled, he lifted his head really really slow, looked at me and took off....also almost stepped on two 48"+ Timber Rattle snakes 2 years ago in PA...CCP I feel is a must, especially in the backwoods.

    I've been putting off my pistol permit/concealed carry for a very long time now. Mostly due to cost. Thinking I might have to bite the bullet though and go for it.

    We got bears, some of the biggest coyotes in the country, cougars, occasionally theres panther sightings, bob cats. All sorts of stuff that can potentially mess with you. This is the 3rd time in my life I've been hunted by coyotes. You can tell they are hunting you because they come around your flanks quietly yipping to each other while one makes a lot of noise in front of you to distract you. That way the others can check you out. You never worry about the one howling, it is his 10 friends checking you out in the bushes right next to you that you have to worry about.

    yup, around me thats less of a concern, people are still a concern but much less compared to some animals. But thats always on the back of my mind.

    Coyotes rarely attack people. There have only been two documented fatal coyote attacks in the U.S. in recent history. Maybe you guys should do more reading on the subject before you start blasting away in the woods. It must be tough to be afraid of every living thing in this world...

    "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."

    I have many shotguns, I am not lugging one of the around with me. To heavy and cumbersome while detecting

    Free bird, around me coyotes had bred with coy wolf. They act nothing like normal coyotes, more like wolves. They are also much larger than normal coyotes, a few years back a 75 lb one was shot just over the hill from me. Ive had friends and family surrounded and harassed. People get treed and stuck intheir stands during bow season. I've been in the woods my whole life, I know animals. When these types of coyotes get in the larger packs they will challenge anything. [ Comment Removed. ] I've encountered them many times in my life, and have been hunted by them 3 times now. I Will do whatever is necessary to keep myself and my family safe.

    You might want to consider a Rattler single ear headphone. You can keep one ear on the detecting and one for other sounds.

    I have an unrestricted carry permit and the coyotes are far down on my list of concerns. We live in a wooded area and they are common (and visit our chickens routinely). Black bears as well - though they keep a distance. I have them on game camera images 250 yards from our back door.

    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.

    It is anyones right to be armed for whatever reason they choose. Let people worry about their own safety, unless you are willing to accompany them for security.
