I've had a coyote hanging around for the last week or so. My daughter was out taking care of her rabbits Thursday morning and it came up to within 15' of her and the dog. Bold, bold, bold! He came back this morning around 10 a.m. but I couldn't get a shot off before my dog Reba ran him off. Darn thing showed up again an hour later, like I said BOLD, and I was able to drop him. I though I might feel bad, since I've never killed anything that I haven't planned to put on the table before, but I don't. I'm just glad I got him before he got one of my birds or worse yet one of my cats. Thanks for letting me share. I'm actually pretty proud of myself for not getting "buck fever" and missing the shot.
