  1. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    To take care of the coyote problem I got an Extreme Dimension EDMR302 remote control call and a Mojo Outdoors Critter Decoy. In the past year I have easily lost close to a dozen and a half chickens to a coyote. It would be easy to put out some foothold traps, but what about my dogs getting...

    What is the best 223/5.56mm bullet weight for coyotes? Lets say 100 - 150 yards for the longest shot. I have a couple of coyotes that have been killing my chickens. They have gotten brave and have been seen during the middle of the day. After deer season ends in january I plan on doing some...

    My brother has 10 acres fenced off with cattle, goats and a horse. Coyotes have moved into the woods behind his house and are getting too close to his livestock. Right now my brother is using a bolt action 308 which he has used to take down several coyotes. He wants to replace that 308 with...

  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Here recently I have had the opportunity to do some hunting and fishing with my oldest son. At night we hunted small critters and coyotes. I was using a scoped .22-250 and a red spot light. Here are my conclusions: I found that it is difficult to hit a moving target with a scope at night...

    How close have you heard a coyote to your camp site? Last night, around 2:30 AM, the fire had died down about an hour before this happened. A coyote let out a howl, which sounded like it was about 40 feet from our camp site. One of the problems - it was close to my daughter, who was between...
  8. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    I've been living in Virginia for the past few months and have returned to one of my old pastimes...coyote hunting. Now, let me give you the lay of the land. I'm hunting in steep, hilly Appalachia, and although there is plenty of open space, the land is definitely not flat, and heavy woods are...

    Some examples of coyote tracks. Notice you can see the toe/finger nail mark at the end of the track. If this was a cat track, the tips of the claws would be retracted so you could not see them. I took these pictures on a recent hunting trip.
