I hate coyotes as much as the next guy but not long ago I found big treble hooks baited with meat hanging off limbs about 4/5' off the ground , a friend told me they are for coyotes , when they jump up and grab the meat they get hooked and will suffocate being stretched like that , went back and cut them down .
I don't tolerate that kind of cruelty if I can stop it , turns out some dogs were caught that way , what a shame.

I've owned several dogs that loved to eat apples. Does not surprise me that 'yoyes like them too.

I have never seen a coyote eating apples but I'm not surprised, they are omnivorous. I did watch a gray fox eating field corn, in my back yard, that my wife had put out on the ground for the deer........robin

Have not been able to catch up with those coyotes again. They were there every evening for 6 days in a row about 825 pm,, then nothing. We watched last Saturday night til 11pm,, darn if they didnt show up @ 1 Am.

We did get a couple nice pics of a rather large Blackbear walking past the game cam Monday about 530 pm. I forgot to bring the SD card home from that cam,, so this bear pic will have to do for now. This one was several weeks ago, and a smaller bear.

The last pic looks what may be a Fisher Cat. .

Around here you hear 'yotes yippin' most every night. Then suddenly for a week you hear nuttin' and then every night again. I kinda figure when the wolves are around, the 'yotes get the 'ell outta Dodge.

I taught her that raspberrys are good. Big mistake. My wife wondered why there never were any that ripened. Then she saw the dog carefully picking them. To this day she still believes the dog learned it on her own...

Thats funny. I dont thing those without dogs, understand how damn smart they can really be. Our one male German Shepherd is a year 1/2 old. Last week, he figured out how to open the door and let himself in / or out. And that includes opening the screen door first.

I was in the garden one day picking the Zuchini that were too large and tossing them. The one male Shepherd was watching and he decided he was going to make a game out of that because he wanted to play.. So I started playing tug / fetch with him with a Zuchini. After that, he ate every darn one he could get a hold of.

A casual look at yote poop will show they eat anything and everything - feathers, seeds, hair, veggie stuff - including poop from lactating calves.

The yotes are involved in more than earning a living as they enjoy tormenting and inflicting unnecessary pain and suffering - nature's terrorists. The yotes have spread into yuppie enclaves to prey on pets like puppies and kittens that are small loved pets and other baby animals.

After reading the Berger manual I switched to a quick twist .22-.250 with 70-75 grain bullets and 4350 type powders, it seems to outperform the .243 with less blast & recoil.

I apologize for the blood leaking from the yote, knowing that some might find it offensive - the purpose of the pic was to show uninformed readers what these cunning beasts look like in daylight and their size using the rifle as a scale.

Last month I saw a yote that had a large partially healed wound on the front part of his/her shoulder my guess is that some enraged doe grabbed him/her with her teeth and held the yote for some time.

Thats a good coyote. GOOD AND DEAD.

Ive used just about any caliber that was handy over the years, from 22 mag, .223, 270, & 30-06. just as long as it kills em.

My NEW favorite coyote killer is a JR Carbine 9mm. I have the takedown model with a 4 x 12 night scope with lighted crosshairs, and just got a promag green laser light, which works great to about 200 yards. I use CCI Blazer brass FMJ 115 grain,, and aim for bones. The rifle is incredibly accurate to 200 yards. Easily capable of head shots at that range. ( have not tried it any farther as of yet). But it has no trouble killing varmints. If someone would have told me a 9mm rifle could be that accurate BEFORE I bought this one, Id of never beileved it.

What really surprised me, was this rifle is no louder than a 22 mag, so you can shoot it without ear plugs, also cheaper to shoot than a 22 mag, no issues finding ammo. All arounds, its great for hunting, and that big fat bullet really packs a wallop. The sound of the "SMACK" when the bullet hits is actually louder than the report of the rifle.

While the latter part of that paragraph is true, for the most part, the first apart is urban myth spread by those same yuppies to justify why they let poor "Fluffy" out in the back yard alone to be eaten by opportunistic 'yotes.

For the most part, 'yotes spend too much time tryin' to stay alive feeding themselves and their pups to have any left over for "sport hunting and torture". Most 'yotes dispatch their quarry as soon as possible to avoid being hurt themselves and dying a long slow death. Inflicting unnecessary pain and suffering only exposed them to unnecessary risk. While it's human nature to use Anthropomorphism and give 'yotes negative human traits, it's not reality. They are only doing what they do, using the tools the good Lord gave them.

Still have NOT caught up with those two coyotes. I think they may have move on to greener pastures. No more Game cam pics of them either.

But I did catch this fella, several times. . Last night he walked right out in front of me @ 730 pm . Which made the evening hunt well worth the " woods time".
He ate and browsed for about an hour in front of us,, then put his nose to ground and started running does for about 2 hours. Then came back and layed right down and took a break about 75 yards out for about 30 minutes. When he got up from that, he went back on the hunt.

With the full moon shining of his rack, @ 100 yards with the naked eye, you could see he was " well endowed".

Totally nocturnal,, and probably will never see him in hunting season next month. But at least we know he's around.

Our neighbors (IT specialists) once saw a yote, named Al Canus el Mountaini carry of a squalling kitty to some unknown location possibly for some inductee (young yotes) training purpose. Canines routinely carry off terrified living baby animals.

Just imagine the terror a young human female experienced in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia when a pack of these horrible canine creatures attacked their victim who unsuccessfully attempted to secure refuge in a park restroom having a locked door. I don't know if the yotes ate the woman but suspect their attack was an adventure having some territorial motivations or egged on by some monthly occurrence.

Despite having an abundance of small prey such as baby birds, rodents, chickens and small farm animals the evil yotes routinely aggravated our two large German shepherds - the greatly outnumbered German shepherds needed to be protected by their owner who using technologic superiority removed enough of them giving the German shepherds a strategic advantage.
