Luckily my birds have been locked in for almost a week due to the cold weather. The coyotes were after our dogs. Son went out to get the dogs in because we could hear them barking and came running back inside there was a coyote just on top of the hill looking down at him and the dogs. He shot at it with his.22 to scare it off. The dogs were now inside. I was looking for our spot light and he came running back in the house again, right after he had fired the gun he heard something bark to his right down by our barn. Calling the federal trapper today. Going to call a guy I know who has friends looking for a place to hunt coyotes.
