Man my little Stephens pup was burning a coon down last night. Ran him around 550 yards till the coyotes came in and ran him off the tree. He sure sounded good tho, coyotes start around 1:35 and get worse.
One came in on my young squirrel dog back in November. That's why I'm trapping them now. I try not to set where I think somebody will have their dogs. I caught one this morning with five traps out. That made 10 since Christmas.
You gotta really watch it wth a feist. Around Febuary Coyotes start denning up around here. The males get real protective. I've had them chase my feist back to me so close I shot one with a pocket pistol. They can tell that's it's a small dog by the bark. We've had them come in on 70 lb coon hounds and cut them up. Hound feist or cur.....if they want them they will get them. When my feist smells or sees one, he will come back to me and walk beside me for 5-10 minutes, and then go back to hunting.
