    The Dogs wanted to go for a walk in the woods today....

    We've got a coyote problem, so I don't take the Pack to the woods without a weapon. Not that I don't know they can kill the 'yotes, But I'd rather they just surround them and I finish it off. (I've got 5 mixed breed rescues, all 50-70 pounds). Anyhow, check out my rifle, it was a we bit nippy.

    Haha this sounds like a different world to where I come from!

    If I were carrying that out with the dog I myself would be shot by the police

    Now, I happen to know that there are places in the UK where you can own and carry one of those. Game keepers for example can. There's a gent on another board that posts all of the time. Of course, he's got to get permission from the local constabulary and jump through the hoops and can only have so many... and I thought you were OK in Australia for leverguns?

    And while there are plenty of coyotes around here, I've never come across any while walking with my dogs in the woods - they seem to hear us coming and beat feet long before we can see them. The dogs do go running after things that I never do see - probably some coyotes but I've never heard them get into any fights. One is a 50 lb yellow lab/pit bull mix and the other a great dane, so they'd have no worries. They run loose around my place and have shown signs of scraping with something before but I have no idea what it was.

    I carry a handgun when I go - much handier and stays warm and protected on my hip

    I only see them when they are chasing game. The deer run right through the area, and if the tail is up, cock the lever and be ready. No luck so far. recently I saw them from the house, I was able to grab the house shotgun and sneak up on him while eh was trying to run down a doe. I mistakenly had the wrong round in the chamber, and as I tried to chamber a slug, he heard the slightest click and ran off. Twice now I've had my sights on one but I had the wrong weapon. Damn 'yotes.

    I went to the mailbox once with the rifle on my shoulder, just as the sheriff drove by. He asked if all was Okay, I told him "Damned Coyotes". He said "Cool, good luck".

    They know me. We have a drunken bully in the neighborhood. He started crap with a neighboring family, I went and got the kids and brought them here to get them out of the language. He came here and said something to me while I was teaching the proper way to swing a baseball bat. Then he fell down. (Damn booze) He called the sheriffs because he fell down. They came to see me about it.

    They said "We don't know what happened but he's really drunk. Thanks".

    We have 'yotes here too. See them a lot on horseback when we aren't chatting on a ride. Our one mare really dislikes them, actually turns toward them when she winds them...strange behavior.

    Anyway, the .22 bolt gun is mighty handy if you can sit around and call them out of the fence line, but I've never had frost like that on my rifle!

    I see coyotes on my trail cams at night but not during the day. I don't take the time to hunt them. I keep a rifle by the back door for my favorite nemisis....woodchucks that burrow under my outbuildings.
