I am in Georgia on vacation sitting on the back porch listening to the crows fight when I see movement in the woods, the family already thinks I always have guns and hunting on the brain so I ask if they ever see coyote around here and my sister hugs her little Yorkie and says "NO" and everybody laughs and pokes fun at me and we go on about the night. This morning we are heading up to the store to pick up some groceries and all of a sudden a coyote pops out of the woods in front of us on the road right behind their house. My sisters husband is own his way to the hardware store to build a gate on to their deck lol.

I hear them at night when we shoot under the lights at the club. I've heard adults and lately, pups. I know there around the neighborhoods in some places out here in the "edge" suburbs. My dogs are large so I don't worry about them much, but I've warned some neighbors with small dogs that red-tails aren't the only predators in the neighborhood anymore.

IMO, shooting registered targets at the club is like eating a "registered cheeseburger". It's the same cheeseburger, but you pay more for it and everyone knows you ate it...

They're everywhere, one of the few animals that are content to live in close proximity to humans.

Though their diet consists mostly of mice, they're a threat to small pets and small game. But so are predatory birds, such as owls, hawks and eagles. Coyotes sometimes get blamed for the birds' mischief.

They will occasionally bark like dogs.

When it's wet, I find coyote tracks near our house and have seen them cross our yard in broad daylight.

First one I ever saw, out in the middle of Ft. Leonard Wood, MO reservation quail hunting, just me and an English Setter in `76. About 50 yards away. I remember saying to myself, " What`s a dog doing way out here? ". Then I realized.... Seen plenty of them since, including the one that blew up the right front quarter panel of my Prius one night outside of Birmingham, AL. They are indeed EVERYWHERE!

I live in Los Angeles & when I depart late nite to go dove & quail hunting I always see them in our neighborhood. Often I try to run them over, but they are too quick!
Rarely run across them in the field as they are pretty smart.
Plan to be relocating next year to a rural area & very much look fwd to thinning their population.

Have lost several cats to them over the years...want some pay-back!!!
