Hi, I have all the birds locked up except some culls and once again have noticed them being picked off one at a time. Either Fox or Coyote or both. I have tried everything to trap them but they don't fall for it. So, I need to know HOW do I do a Stake Out? Can someone please give me a step by step for it or at least a general idea of how to do this with some kind of success? I know there are hunters out there who could do this no problem, but I don't hunt. I am a pretty good shot when target shooting and even managed to take out a feral cat but that was during the day. I think I know the main path they are taking but I have literally 100's and 100's of open land around me and they are on at least 3 of the 4 sides surrounding me. 2 areas are the most traveled. I can see the thick path in the back of the coop (North) and a whole bunch to the East. What is better to shoot them with, 22 rifle with a scope or a shotgun? And how close to the path should I be and where am I supposed to sit/hide? Should I stake a cull bird out to lure it and if so, where should I stake it out? In the natural path or out in the open? I won't know which direction it is coming from so will staking the cull out in the open be better? If I am going to get a good shot, I will need a moment to site in and it's dark outside. How do you get off a good shot in the dark? Do people just sit outside all night waiting? Dang, it is getting cold too. How do I know when to go out there and when to come in? If I wait until the birds are cackling then it will most likely hear me and run, right? Any all all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
