    do you have a dog - our dog chases the coyotes off. They have been getting quite brave lately and sounds like we have a lot more this year - we'll be shooting a few - hope this keeps them at bay. We have trouble with coons and skunks getting ours.

    Already tried that, didn't work.

    I don't have a good cliff or natural arch to work with and when I tried to pull it up into a tree the limbs kept bending. I did manage to sling half the block and tackle into the Judge's pool when the rope broke and it is sort of like the baseball in the Sandlots movie. I ain't even going to try to recover that thing!
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Hey Nate, I didn't see this post from a month ago. We don't need to corner that coyote to play with your carbine, just find some free time and yell. We'll run to the range and make sure it works.

    I have new toys you have not seen to.

    I'll bet you're glad you snagged that thing when you did!

    In all reality this one is a big dog. He needs a good killing and not just a sting in the butt.
    He is fast and sneeky. You do not know he is there until he is halfway gone already. In one of my past encounters with him he was there one instant and gone before I could get the gun up. The neighbor that saw this incident said the coyote never even slowed down. He simply grabbed the hen on the run and never looked back. Wings were still flapping when he hit the bush on the far side of the yard.

    I have the 12ga by the door with #4 up first and 000 buck four shells deep behind the #4. Still I have little hope in catching him in the open. I am sure I will have to call him in and ambush him from a blind.
    I know this is an old thread but since I just joined, I thought I would share my opinion.
    The 22 will do just fine on a coyote, dog or anything where I live. My Dad once dropped a coyote with one shot at 75 yards on a dead run, with a 22.
    I've ended more large dogs, raccoons,opossums for killing my chickens with the lowly 22.
    Shot placement is key to humanely terminate anything. If you need a 12 GA for a coyote or dog, you shouldn't take the shot (IMHO).
    I prefer the 22 because its not as messy when you have to dispose of said vermin. also cheaper!
    Anyone that has dogs, please keep them up or on your own property! I don't enjoy your animals destroying my property.
    Thanks!

    .22 did in the neighbors pit bull who was trying to get through a 10' fence panel after our rat terrier. 1 shot directly behind his front leg. he did make it to the driveway of his owners rental place before he died. Called the police because I knew trouble was on its way and the neighbor showed up while I was on the phone with 911 and they have him recorded threatening to kill us once again. in the past 2 months it has been their 1) horses twice, 2) the dog twice, 3) a hog ( yes, I said hog) , and 4) a chicken( ) they never found the chicken.

    Not "all" kids. My kids just got new .22s for Christmas. Their gifts to me included a new belt and holster for my .357. My 12 year old daughter just made 4 loaves of bread today.

    I had to remove two 10-12 yr. old boys from my property yesterday shooting .22's. I explained to the parents I was just about to use my rifle range they were behind. I felt like the Grinch of Christmas. But, the more I thought about it. What could I have done? Invited them to use my range? Not in this day and time, one accident and they'd own "Slippery Hollow". So, had they asked permission the answer would of had to still be NO! It is a shame....

    Your a good Mom! My boys got their Henry Mini Bolts two years ago for Christmas. They were 8 and 11 years old then.
    I made sure they understood how important firearm safety is.

    This year they got stainless 10/22's for Christmas.

    When my youngest one was 7 years old, he was the first one to shoot my 4' GP100 and when he gets old enough or I die it will go to him. He is as accurate as it am those at combat range.

    One time we had a opossum get into the chicken pen. The vermin didn't stand a chance with my boys on guard with their Henry's.

    I've been told by several people if a dog kills a chicken to use the chicken as a dog collar for a few days and it will never go after another one as long as it (the dog) lives

    Oops... forgot a note.

    People also say nail a tin/aluminum pie pan to a wooden post and any slight breeze will rattle it and scare off predators. But if you have deer in yard it might scare them off as well.
