Last two nights after dark when out in the yard I could hear the coyotes yapping like crazy to the east. Sometimes they are so loud that it makes the hair stand up on my neck. Just last week some guy around here caught a mountain lion on his trail camera. I guess it's time to start carrying heat when I'm out running the dogs with the 4 wheeler.

Daniel, get those coyotes. A 308 should do a nice job on them. Get them all, so you don't have to do it again.

Daniel, sorry to hear of your latest challenges. I can understand the need to vent those frustrations. I have my challenges with FF to contend with right now. Good luck with it all.

Good luck with the coyote erradication. I have yet to see one on my place, but hear them over on the next ridge at night.
They could have all the deer that ate my garden this year! Just leave the farmers stock alone!

Daniel, any luck killing them killers? The good old Pa game commission actually stocked them here along with bobcats, of course they will not officially admit it. We work on the two way radios they use and some of the rabbit cop had mention they had released them to control over population of the deer herd. The neighbor lost two alpaca. They also say we have no elk here in Jefferson county, well the only thing I can say about is the white tail must be crossbreeding with limousine cattle around here. hope you get it undercontrol.

There's a picture or two online showing bigger than bobcats around PA. There are theories that they have transplanted big cats in the mountains east of here to help thin the deer herd too. Makes me shake my head when people tell me there must not be any deer left, cause they can't find any during Deer Season.

There's been lots of coyotes in IN for quite a while. Supposedly because the deer population is high. Earlier this summer there was a couple of mountain lion sightings in southern IN that were confirmed by game camera photos. Good luck on your eradication efforts.

You might want to try a donkey in with your herd to keep the coyotes away. Some say it works, some say it doesn't. You can't shoot all of the coyotes though. Coyotes are basically the rats of the canine world.

Wolves keep them away, but that's not much of a solution if you have livestock.

There's those big white dogs who imprint on sheep and cattle and think they are part of the herd.

Weird coyote story: We were sleeping in the camper in my Dad's yard when we were out for his funeral a few years ago. Coyotes came right up to it and made this weird mewling/whining sound. It was creepy. I've been around coyotes all my life and never heard it before. The dogs went crazy trying to get outside. Asked my nephew about it and he said they were in farm yards every night, calling the dogs out.

It's easy to see why there are so many predeators, NO ONE WANTS TO USE FUR, the bunny huggers have the fur market ruined in this country ,so most of our fur goes over seas, and with economy it's not worth trapping
I haven't trapped since the market crashed in 08, gas is too high and fur prices are too low, Here in central pa. i caught 500 fox and a couple a dozen coyotes every year, it's easy to see with that many more animals out there to breed whats going to happen
