We have at least two packs of yotes in our neighborhood, they howl at sunset and about 1:00 am. The individuals in one pack are big, 50-60 lbs, long legged with bushy tails, probably dog hybrids.

If I saw one in our yard I'd pop the sucker in a heartbeat. Good on the OP and his dog.

I did 't weigh the two I dropped but I would be very surprised if they were 50 pounds. Mangy looking skinny vermin.

Our Kung Fu cat is the only thing I've seen that can handle her. Cat will sit down and raise a paw up. Wiener dog will charge her and the cat will tear her up with one paw. Dog will back up, cat will switch paws. Rinse and repeat.


It takes a certain kind of badass for a dog to dig down into a hole and go face to face with a badger. Speaking of cats, my grandmother had a dachshund and his only nemesis was our tough old tomcat. One of the cat's favorite games was to wait on a piece of furniture for the weiner dog to walk past, spring down on its back, dig his claws a few times, then fly back up onto the couch. He'd curl back up and just sit and watch while the dog spun in frantic circles trying to find what just hit him.

I guess we know who was the brains of that bunch! Big Grin

Coyotes here in AZ are generally quite small, around 30-40 pounds or so. Probably due to the desert environment.

Good looking pup.

I'm more of a medium to large dog fan, but a gutsy pup like that could change my mind. Well done! Razz

We have a couple of packs roaming around the small enclave where I live. They seem to roam aroud the perimeter of the property which borders all farm and pasture land howling like crazy.

When I took the dog out this morning at 5:00 for his morning nature call there was a small cotton tail in the yard just sitting there frozen like a statue. He didn't even budge when I tossed a rock his way that landed right next to him.

I took off in the oppsite direction with the dog and when we got back the bunny was gone.

When I came home from work this afternoon after picking the pup up from daycare, I found a ball of fur and some innards in the yard! Not much left!

I screwed the Silencerco Sparrow on the Ruger 22/45 tonite and will carry that instead of the pocket 9mm I usually carry.


Best regards,

Tom


I have no comment at this time.

Neighbors reporting seeing one roaming the woods behind part of the subdivision, we live on a golf course development and there are several conservation areas within the PUD as well as rural around, first time I've heard of a coyote being in the area, used to see red foxes a lot, but those have left, owls a plenty some eagles.

Guess I'll have to get the 22/45 or step it up to the 522 out

Think I have read this thread at least ten times, now.

How is she doing ?

I learned recently that a 12 gauge Federal Tru-Ball slug at about 40 yards will flat-out eviscerate a coyote. I have an aimpoint on my 1187.

A friend suggested I use a .22 rifle, because it doesn't make enough noise to wake the neighbors, and the coyote will most likely run off and die somewhere other than your property. As gruesome as it sounds, this may be necessary in some situations. I never considered doing it myself, though.

I have noticed that cottontails in general employ that technique, "if I don't move, you cannot see me".

they had the game warden guy on the radio today talking about yotes. He said the females bodies will respond to a lack of howling nearby (over time) by increasing the litter size - sometimes double the usual amount.

So - they respond to being killed off by producing more and more pups.

His other tip was this: If you have one (or two) that come around, but don't seem to be bothering your pets or livestock/chickens - you may be better off leaving those alive. If you kill those, the ones who move in later to fill the void you created may be more aggressive.

We adopted a wiener dog when I was a kid. The reason the farmer had to give him up was that he killed three of his prize peacocks. Peacocks aren't exactly small.
