I came home around 10:45 PM tonight to find a coyote wandering around in my front yard. Looks like I need to reset my trap... and get a thermal imaging scope.

Those possums will kill chickens as well. They will just eat the head though. I shot a possum in my coop a couple nights ago.

I'm posting again here since there are a couple of people interested in shooting coyote: they're still around and still active. I was out back with a friend this morning hooking up my trailer and a 'yote snatched our best laying chicken out of the pen, roughly 175 feet from where we were standing by my trailer. This was around 11:00 AM, cloudy day. My donkey was standing maybe 35 feet from where it grabbed the chicken.

We're fairly convinced at this point that the donkey has zero concern for the chickens. She pretty much hangs out with the goats all day and lets the coyotes have their way with the chickens.

With me being so close and hearing what happened, I took off running to scare the coyote off (didn't know if it grabbed a chicken yet or not) and the coyote dropped the chicken in the creek on the way out. I used that dead chicken as bait in the coyote trap so hopefully I'll find another one in the cage tomorrow morning...

I've got a 10/22 and ruger american .22 with some hush puppies on them.

I'd need to sight them in again to make sure they are accurate, but would be fun.

Any time!

I've been looking at different coyote calls online. I'd love to call them in and drop 'em in their tracks...

You can come shoot all the coyote you want... if you bring the Cobra.

Luckily our coop is virtually impossible for any 4 legged critter to enter once the doors are closed. The only thing getting in here would be a snake if it climbs the walls to the vented windows 6' above grade.

That would be great!

I shined my flashlight across mine and the neighbor's yards last night and there were two coyote laying down, staring back at me from 200' away from the porch. I walked towards them and they didn't move until I was roughly 100' away. They just lazily walked off into the dense brush. Were I equipped, I could have easily shot one of them.


I'm ordering a Yankee Hill Nitro 30 suppressor from 'Musbrad2' today.

Crappy zoomed in iPhone pic but you get the point. I set up a snare at a spot where I knew the coyote were crossing through the fence. Finally snagged one after a week or so. Caught it around the hips instead of neck but I donít care, a catch is a catch.

Thatís two now.

And for anyone interested in going the 'personal' route on a suppressor, Brad tells me it's running around 180 days for the whole process. My check cleared a few days ago so it looks like this summer before I get my suppressor out of jail.

I got 180 then I got an update the other day stating 220, now with the government shutdown I don’t know how that will effect the wait time.

NFA examiners are non essential employees, so the paperwork is just sitting there stacking up.

I would consider them as useless employees. Did you know that the NFA does not require the system as it is set up? It only says that a $200 tax has to be paid and says nothing about the process. We should change it where you simply pay the $200 at point-of-sale like you do with sales tax.
