    Juliet, we will avenge that cyote

    Right now my dad is golfing {he is the only one who knows how to use a gun} and my mom goes out to close up the chickes for the night. A bird screaches an alarm call and my mom clapped her hands. Then, a cyote runs off from the coop and has our only ee in his/her mouth. My mom is tracking him/her down by the feather trail. Reasurance?

    I [​IMG] whatever did this

    It will be back.
    Set a leg trap if you have one. If not have the gun at the ready. It may be time to take some gun use lessons for those who don't know how to use one.

    Gamo makes very good adult air rifles. For predator control, this is what i would recommend. There is no loud boom to scare your chickens or your neighbors. A head shot is a kill shot with these. They come in .177 and .22 calibers.
