Dawn got this lil pocket dog , a white TacoBell pooch. Cost almost as much as my last rifle. Anyway, last night about 10pm she goes out front with the lil pooch to let it relieve itself. Comes in a few mins later breathless and paralyzed with fear. After a minute or two when she can talk she told me theres a coyote in the front yard and he growled loud and moved toward me. I dont think in 22 yrs I have ever seen her so full of fear. We have had coyotes in the front yard often, almost daily or nightly, as they poop right next to my front stoop 5' from the front door( some kind of coyote challege? ). I took my 45auto and a flashlight and went out but the yote was gone. I guess today I'll be moving the rear porchlight to the end of the house and designing a silencer for my Marlin :)22LR. I may get another hide for the wall(havent got the first one back from the dang taximan yet!).

I just love life in the suburban wilderness.

Wow you had better move that light and get that growling yote. We sure don't want anything to happen to the star E3 chef especially one that knows where Bellefonte is.

If it didn't cross your mind the yote was inviting your dog to its dinner. I'd be packing a little more power next time I'd step out side to walk the dog and have it on a leash. That way you can reel in the bait and unload a clip into the varmit. ;) I hope you get your new pelt soon.

Here is how you do it, Silver.

You invite your worthless buddy Eastman down to hunt and tie his worthless rear side to a tree and use him for bait..

Naw, that won't work, even a coyote wouldn't eat Eastman


o:) :peace:

Just me, little fatty

Am still night hunting the yard yote.

But, heres a link to the coyote I picked up from taxidermist today. I got it in Oct 06 while elk hunting with Dawn north of BlackHawk CO. It was a long wait for my first ever Colo trophy :

Answering my own post again as I so often do. I now have good evidence by the dozen new holes in our screen door that wile e coyote is trying to enter our home and eat the real dog, the orange cat, or the taco bell dog. I got home today and wife showed me our screen door with holes dug from the outside. When I went out back to have a looksee I found poop close to the stoop so I know ol wile-e is getting in the yard(which I suspected anyway).

So I got out the ol dbl-wore-out 22 revolver and cleaned and oiled it and loaded it with 9 fresh sub-sonic rounds. It was fun cleaning and oiling it up and trying to tighten up the many loose areas on the gun. It's an old old H&R 9 shot that was a gift form a friend.(Not sure why friends give me their handguns...) The gun is off by 6" at 25 yrds, but an in the house shot for defense will go where put and not disturb the neighbors. And it's not as loud as either 44 magnum or my 45auto. Maybe I otto buy some snake shot.

The CCI .22 snake shot loads aren't very potent. May I suggest the CCI Quick Shok. They are .22 LR Super Hollow Point - 32 grain and are designed to fragment into three sections on impact, tripling it's stopping power.
