re: Dealing with coyotes
Got stuck on dog pack hunting coyote TikTok the other day and it was wild. Saw a pack of greyhounds catch up to one with a good 30 yard head start and go to town on it. Never realized that farmers/ranchers used dogs to fight take them down.

re: Dealing with coyotes
Hang raw bacon off the back fence at night then wait for them to show up and then spot light and shoot.

I’m told dogs (at least a single dog) are not the answer. Guy told me coyotes run in packs and one will tempt the dog to chase it while the others in the pack lay in wait. They attack as a group and will hamstring the dog and then kill him when he can’t use his back legs


Border collies must be able to avoid this. I use to live out in the country and had a shite ton of coyotes. My BC, even at 6 months old, would run through the woods when they started howling and even when she saw them out back would take off after them and be gone for an hour, you could hear them yelping at her but BCs don’t typically bark much.

My in laws live out in country with a lot of coyotes and they also have a BC, runs all through those woods although she’s about 14 now and stays around the house. I’ve been hunting and have witnessed her crashing through the woods going after 2 coyotes once

re: Dealing with coyotes
Rogan had a coyote expert on a few years ago and it was one of the more entertaining podcasts I’ve ever listened to. The guy’s name was Dan Flores. Highly recommend.

One of the things discussed was a tactic they use of having one coyote come out of the woods to lure a dog to chase him. He then leads the dog into a waiting ambush by the pack.

Border Collies and Australian Shepherds are similar and a couple of coyotes came close to taking down our 45 lb Aussie, who was probably 6-7 at the time and in very good shape. So, I wouldn't count on them being immune to coyote attack. Now, there's no telling how many times she encountered them before she was attacked.

Our Aussie got into more than her share of scrapes with other dogs, bigger dogs mostly. She was quick and sneaky and determined to always be the alpha female, but her fights were to determine the pecking order. They involved a lot of shock and awe, but not much damage. It was different when she found herself on the menu. I put a stop to her roaming at night after that attack.

Yes. They are prevalent everywhere.

Coyotes are amazing. I hate them, but you can't deny how cool they are. They are impossible to eradicate. Their litter size and breeding intervals vary depending on local population density.

We kill 100s of thousands of them a year, and they just keep increasing in number. It also doesn't help that we have nearly wiped out all the coyote's natural predators. Then, think about how we cleared pastor land and started piling up defenseless prey for them across the country. It has really never been a better time to be a coyote.

re: Dealing with coyotes
If you can find some
Gopher bait
Lace meatballs
If you put a flag next to the meatball (like we do on deer ranch) you pick up the dead coyote to get your flag back
Almost instant death
I bought a 5 gal bucket of it when it was still available but it’s hard to find now

re: Dealing with coyotes
I was playing City Park North years ago and a large coyote decided to sun bathe on the 14th fairway. Our drives didn't chase him off and our golf carts approach didn't faze him at all. He was defiant and refused to move. I Don't carry a gun in my golf bag. We called the clubhouse to run him off.
We were told there were about 8 of them living under Kennedy High school.

re: Dealing with coyotes
Poisoning coyotes is a fruitless effort and puts poision in the food chain. Quit doing it.

Had a rancher down in La visiting family when I had taken my then maybe 2-3 month old BC to the park. He came up to me and iirc was from Wyoming but don't remember. He has several of them on his ranch. He said occasionally they will pack up and chase off a lone wolf from his stock, I don't remember what kind of animals he had.

I told him same thing in last post except my dog was younger but she roams the woods and I was worried about coyotes. This is the only explanation I've ever got but not sure if there's any truth to it. He said same thing others have said, coyotes will lure a dog out and then set a trap. His opinion was, BCs are so intelligent they are actually aware of what's going on. Now, I'm sure many of BCs have been killed by yotes, but maybe that's the case or maybe it's luck. My BC died at a year old unfortunately from a seizure, only thing vet could determine was she had an aneurysm. My inlaws however is still alive, I've owned or grew up with 5 BCs over the years. The one I speak of was the first one I bought myself and lived with as an adult.

re: Dealing with coyotes
I walked out of the side door on our garage one night. It was a very windy night and our house is on top of a hill. At the other end of the garage stood a coyote sniffing the wind, which was in his face. I quietly walked to within two feet of him and clapped my hands, stomped my feet and yelled. He disappeared in an instant, like a ghost.

I usually soak 5.56 rounds in bacon grease. Coyotes eat them right up.

Bonus: once they’re dead, they don’t go home to Allah.

re: Dealing with coyotes
I told the story here once about taking our chihuahua out early one morning at just about daylight and a coyote trotted through less than 10 yards from where I was standing. As it passed the pup, it dipped its head and grabbed him. I jumped and clapped my hand on my leg and yelled at it. It dropped the pup and ran off the direction it had been traveling. If that coyote had actually been hungry, we would have never seen our dog again. Fortunately, he was up to date on his rabies shots, and the attack didn't really seem to phase him longterm. He did beat me back to the porch, though.

That dog was one tough little shite. I believe that incident spooked me more than him!

re: Dealing with coyotes
There was a time when coyote trapping was prevalent. I wish that could make a comeback. It's a really fun experience.
