    Good grief - I thought I had it bad trying to stave off the hawks and owls. I simply cannot imagine having to deal with coyotes. How scary! Good luck and keep that pistol handy.

    grandfather had LOTS of problems with coyotes around his duck pond. There was a pack of 5 that would sleep in our neighbors yard(He LET THEM! [​IMG]) and sneak over to our pond and take as many ducks as they wanted before we knew it..

    Let me say this duct tape and a flashlight make that night shot highly successful! tape the flashlight to the gun and happy hunting.

    Those critters are tenacious and will be back.

    Too bad you don't have night vision on your pistol!
