Haven't heard a coyote in weeks... until tonight. They were very close to my house when they started their howling session, maybe 50 yards into the woods at the edge of my property. Way too close. They haven't gone near my coops and I don't think they can get in if they do but SIL lost her cat to them several weeks ago, and my neighbor is afraid they might get his cat. Lots of diffused moon light tonight, easy to see and I'm packing my 10 million candlepower flashlight and a .44 mag I'm sitting in my computer room with the lights low and the door to the outside open so I can hear shuffling in the leaves, so I can periodicaly check BYC. Anybody else on watch tonight?
