    Birds went nuts 12:54am almost exact time as his last try for chicken dinner. But this time I had my SKS 7.62 x 39 ready but the thru shot was NOT clear and the bullet through path would have been close on neighbors house so he escaped AGAIN

    I'd put some leg traps for that Bobcat all around the coop.

    Well the next morning at 10am my wife says "Honey, there is a coyote coming up the hill" he was heading for the fence, my chickens free range, so I grabbed my SKS and TRIED to sneak onto deck but he heard me and as I rounded corner he ran. So I took a shot at him, through the trees I would get glimpses of him as he ran, so I took 3 pot shot in the direction he was running. Unfortunately, I had no clear line of sight so he got away. However on the 2nd shot I think I nicked him because he didn't show up on his the path he was running after 2nd shot. So maybe I just scared him enough not to come back
