This morning it was raining pretty good and when I glance out the window I saw this LARGE coyote jogging down the center of one of our horse pastures right towards the barn. I went out side and the coyote stopped and looked at me.

The horses were under the shed or the Thoroughbred (nasty/protective SOB)would surely have ran him off. I really have never paid the coyotes much mind bedause they have never approached my house/barn before but i don't want this to become a habit for the coyote(s). We have a pet dog, rabbits, a barn cat and a 3 month old Shetland pony my daughter is always running with in the same area so coyotes aren't really welcome.

I took one shot and missed but hopefully it will discourage future visits. I really only thought I had a 50/50 chance of hitting him as it was a 50+ yard pistol shot but it was just low and kicked up some dirt at the coyotes feet.

Might have been funny if my daughters other paint pony was out he is just under 14 hands and while he is sweet to her, he hates all other animals, even tried to stomp the cat!

We have those mangy beasts come around periodically. In fact a few of them got together and were chasing one of my neighbors calfs. I try to shoot 'em when I have a chance - the problem is that I'm usually inside when I see 'em and they're gone by the time I load up and head out the door. For some reason my wife frowns on me shooting out the window Smile

"For some reason my wife frowns on me shooting out the window Smile"

Funny!

I must have looked like a lunatic too. I am doing dishes one minute then I'm running across the field uholstering a Glock, then reholstering and jumping the fence (coyote moved) then drawing and firing Smile

I did yell to my wife before I did this...she already thinks I'm nuts why convince her any further.

I would have taken follow-up shots but out of concern for the hunters who occasionally trespass on my property I didn't want to take a chance on a flyer, even though I sometimes want to shot them too Smile Guess I was well trained.

God I love it! Well trained? You bet bro.

Get your .22 rifle and keep it handy to the kitchen. A hollow point in the boiler room is plenty of medicine for those pests, and I'm betting you will be a little more accurate with a long gun, especially if you are my age and you are jumping fences. The last one I plunked had similar bad manners and fell to a single Winchester Power Point.

There is a MAJOR difference between us..... when I do the morning dishes, my back is to the window. God knows what the hell is going on out there while I am doing my house frau shtick. Smile Mark

The home office I work out of is on the top floor of our house. It has a nice view, and the ideal situation for hunting would be to poke a rifle out the window and shoot away. Alas, it is not to be - so I have to grab a gun and run down to the main floor and out the door. Usually when they hear the door open they're off and running. On nice days I can sit out and work on the deck - if they come around then I have a gun handy to pop 'em with, but that opportunity hasn't come up yet. One of these days though...

I like that!

Actually I think I was just washing my coffee cup. My wife doesn't like my dishwashing, if it doesn't go into the dishwasher she washes it like it was a surgical instrument! Apparenty my washing skills don't meet these high standards .....good Wink yeah right

She doesn't like my clothes washing either...hmm notice a trend here?Wink yeah right


I help run the kids around, do some of the shopping and until recently the vast majority of cooking(which I really enjoy). I hate cleaning and am terrible at it so this division of labor works! When company comes or a holiday I cook and she cleans.

I don't hunt but I do always have a handgun on my side. More for the "human animals" though Smile I have many handguns but no rifles or shotguns. I should get something for varmints, it aint' easy with pistol So Sad

My neighbor has extensive gardens and he is more the bcakyard sniper type(very responsible though). He hates the deers and woodchucks but they LOVE his plants though Smile

Coming from the burbs I've mostly been a pistol kind of guy - the best rifle I have for a coyote is probably an AR-15. A lot of overkill but at least I've got a real good backstop in the mountain behind us. Maybe I'll pick up a Ruger 10/22 one of these days.

Same here, as a former city boy the only rifle toting folks around were disgruntled postal workers. Smile

I only tried shooting out a window once, unfortunately I HIT what I was aiming for...

I was in the bedroom (upstairs rear) when my dogs went crazy, my good lady was making breakfast & coffee in the kitchen (downstairs front), I went to the window and saw that I had nabbed a skunk in a live trap I had set to catch the racoon who raids my bird-feeders. Thinking (and I use the term loosely) I would be sprayed approaching the little guy, I opted for the 12ga. tranquilizer. Bad move, very bad move, before I could get it and I back in the window and crank it shut my wife was already gagging from the smell, not to mention the broken plates.

Tip o' the week, NEVER fire a shotgun in the house without first warning everyone, ESPECIALLY someone who ISN'T a morning person and who hasn't yet had a first coffee, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

I have since eased my way back upo to plinking red squirrels (same offence, raiding bird feeders) with an air rifle out the office window, but nothing that burns powder.

Most of the coyotes in our neighbourhood fall victim to the donkey up the road, the sheep he guards are an atractive target to the coyotes who rarely make it back out of the pasture alive, let alone fed.

Best of luck.
