I am a Canadian,and as for reading this post , I missed the part were the gun was loaded in the vehicle,shot across a highway,shot from inside the vehicle. So whats next? Someone please get a LIFE.

Re: stupid coyote

Could this have been a domestic raised yote? Once a friend of mine stopped to shoot one and it acted just like this one did for you. It just stood and looked like it wanted to come to him. His little girl was along and asked him not to shoot. So he put the rifle down and called the yote like a dog. It came right to him and got in the truck. It was obviously a raised pet. They took it home and hoped to find who raised it and return it. No luck. It pretty much acted like a dog except while eating it didn't want to be messed with. After a while they retuned it to where it was found and turned it loose.

I raised a pair of abandoned pups once. Don't know why moma left them , maybe she got shot but she did't return after two days so I took them home. They never did trust me and I turned them loose when I though they could make it on their own.

Re: stupid coyote

interesting broz,

I don't know, "calling to him" never occurred to me, I wouldn't think so but you never know.

Yeah, I would not have thought to call it either if I wasn't aware of my buddies experience. Even then, I would have been pretty leary of a yote that approached me. Could be a sign of a sick dog too.

At one time I had an 80 acre pen where we kept 30 yotes to train out puppies to track and chase them. I use to have several coyote hounds and train them too. Our home was right in the middle of the pen. At times we would have 3 or 4 laying in the yard waiting for some left overs after dinner. Or we could throw an apple out and they would chase it down and fight over it. One old female would follow my wife about 40 yards behind her as she took walks. She knew she would get a treat when they got home. Pretty interesting animals and in many ways just a dog. Don't get me wrong, I still hunt them and have taken my share and then some. I just found this ones behavior interesting.

I will not judge or get involved in the method of taking a yote debate. But will say , Mike becareful, shooting a yote sure would not be worth loosing any hunting privledges or paying a fine over.

Nice looking yote!! Now go do some reloading and check your zero.

Jeff

Re: stupid coyote

GREAT JOB MIKE. I agree, you saved us a few deer. Maybe these guys can stand in the crosswalks and tackle J walkers. These BOZOS just rub me wrong.

Re: stupid coyote

my tame coyote always wore a collar. sometimes you catch an animal in a bind and it doesnt react normally. often a coyote will stop behind a bush as it thinks you can't see it. thats when you hope you have an interlock.
