Brother is having problems with coyotes but can't shoot them as the area he lives in is a no shooting area.

Read the wolf urine helps. Does it really help or is just some old wife's tale?


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Unless he’s smack in the middle of town, I’d say a crossbow & spotlight over an electronic call at night, and keep it to himself. For that matter, it’s rare for a single gunshot to draw much attention. The second is what has people listening.

Fish & Game will often trap them or have trappers do it.

Are they getting close enough to his house that he can get at them with a slingshot? Like NH2112 said it may be a job for animal control.

Wish I knew the answer. We have lots of them right in our area. They just walk right down the middle of the street like they own the place. They sun themselves on peoples driveways. Plenty of dogs have become victims. I have a 20 gauge shotgun ready just in case one gets a bit too froggy on my lot. The local animal control can't seem to do a #%&*$# thing about them. We hear them howl every night. Creeps me out.

Yes one was on the back deck.

He has a paint ball gun he loads with solid balls but the coyotes being so skittish it is hard to get close enough - only has one hit.

He lives out in the country so F&G/animal control don't do nothing.

It's been at least a couple of years since I've heard them howling here at night (assuming it was coyotes).

Freaky (turn down volume!)...

No coyotes here but I hear fox howls on a regular basis. It sounds like someone is being killed.

Maybe .177 would be a better caliber for the area? Quieter, at least.

Coyotes ate two of my cats. Scum. Get a .22 and plug them.

If one is that close to your house it'd seem you ought to be able to legally shoot it - it's not like you're hunting...

But, if they're so skittish you can't get near them what exactly IS the problem? I once lived in a semi rural area where packs of them would run right down the street, they never gave me (or anyone else that I know of) any trouble...

Consider: Wild Animal Trap: Armadillos/Coyote...5 in Overall Wd, 17 in Overall Ht, Steel

Once he has it in there, he can decide what to do with it... end it, transport it, or have animal control come and deal with it. Repeat as necessary.

I was thinking about what CyBerkut just mentioned. Maybe he can get his own trap and then "deal" with it as he sees fit. I hope he's able to find a solution. What kind of people are the local police? Does it have some salt of the earth people that would be willing to help him and actually get something done about it for him and others around him?

If he's in the country how about a quality pellet gun? Unassuming and no ruckus.

Zamzow, this is Canada where guns are evil.

The problem is it is a small pack and they are not so skittish if coming upon a person walking alone on one of the paths.

It is not unknown that they will attack people, https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/coyotes-kill-toronto-singer-in-cape-breton-1.779304

A cousin who lives on the other side of the region had one of his sheep taken by coyotes, yet couldn't do anything about it.

I would still like to know about how effective wolf urine is.

Yes, that's why I was offering quite options wink

That's something I've always wanted to get in to but never felt motivated enough. Something else I dreamed about in the Sears Wishbook.

Having your livestock eaten and not being legally allowed to protect them, your property and YOURSELF really ruffles my feathers. Perhaps that cousin of yours could get a donkey. I've seen quite a few informational videos of farmers and ranchers who specifically keep donkeys in with their herds to shepherd and protect them and they do so very well.
