 Coyote Hunting ~~~ Me


Had a stand off with what I think was a coyote the other nite.
( Was to dark and to far away to see for sure. but I wasn't gonna try and get up any closer for a better look. )
The thing just stood in it's tracks and wouldn't let me out the door of my storage building so I could get back into the house.
The stand off musta lasted about 5 minutes before it trurned in it's tracks and went the other way.

Usually a coyote or fox will run at a glimpse of a human and generally you won't see them unless you catch them by surprise.

This one didn't flee.
I've seen it 3 nights in less than a week

I would suspect he has been feed by others more than he is stalking you, but if I were you, just in case, I would be "carrying" at these times, and not turn your back to him.

 Coyote Hunting ~~~ Me

As Hetteric stated, coyotes are quick to learn where the food is. If they have been pilfering from your neighbourhood, it wouldn't be long before they tolerate humans.

There's a good-sized pack of coyotes that live in a ravine on the fringe of a small town near here. I've had the contract to bush-hog the fields between it and the big town park / sports complex for years, ever since a coyote snatched a little pet dog a number of years back while the owner watched in horror. At first the coyotes were pretty wary of the equipment and stayed well back. But by the end of the first season they were pacing along watching for anthing flushed or killed by the equipment.

It's gotten bad enough now that we don't put anything but cab-equipped machines out on that job now, and usually 2 at a time so if you have to get out to clear something you have someone to watch your back.

We've offered to 'carry' and pop a few, but so far they are unwilling to do that. They figure as long as the overgrowth is kept down, and they have no cover, they will stay back a safe distance.

While I do not advise discharging a firearm in a built up area, you can use the coyotes brazen attitude to your advantage. Load up a piece of meat with a healthy dose of poison, and keep it in a zip-lock baggie somewhere handy, it won't go bad this time of year. When you see him next, toss him a little 'treat'. Wink yeah right

Best of luck.

Murf,
"They figure as long as the overgrowth is kept down"

Well the good part is no one has all of this type of people. But might be better off if there were all in one small area.

It is a shame when you can get in more trouble for killing such than a person. Of course tractor with bush cutter will not run fast enough to turn sharp enough to play cowboy either.

Be safe.

Do some research on those animals and you will find that their interaction with humans goes in steps. The last step being "humans are food".

I was at my monthly coffee with the boys a couple of weeks ago when the wife called me. There was one under the kitchen window, and since they took our cat she is not real fond of them.

I had them pretty well cleaned out of our area for a time but now they are back. Looks like I will busy. I have heard that the DEC has planted several pair of mountain lion in our area to try to control them. Can't wait to see that under the window!

Cutter, sounds like an "up grade" in cats.

This is my main dislike for the buried dog fences. Might keep your's in but it does not keep anything out. kt

My wife was talking to her stepmother last nite and she was telling my wife that her neighbor across the road from her shot 2 coyotes the nite before that were attacking his dog.
