I'm sure they are in happy land with good cover and a steady water supply. It's tempting to use antifreeze but I just can't do it.

It's also tempting to run some gasoline or propane into the tunnel and light em up. That would be doable but again, it's in the city limits and with a previous criminal record I'm not sure I want to chance it.

I'm taking cgrand's advice (over my wife's advice ) and ordered a Excalibur crossbow. I can set up in the barn and won't be more than 35 yards away. Not sure what happens if I get mommy and/or daddy what I will do with the pups. We'll see.
Well whatever you do the gasoline and light them on fire plan is terrible, don't do that one.

sweet!

we ran about 50 bolts thru my brothers mission yesterday and had a blast
up to 40 yards and I'd say you're in the kill zone
Just keep your thumb on your off hand under the bow string...I have a nice souvenir from the day!

My niece saw a silver/gray dog a couple days ago (40ish#) eating a deer carcass on the side of I540 between Leesville Rd. and the airport. Her dad and myself (based on her desciption) believe it was a coyote.

1. Find some memory foam (from an old mattress)
2. Cut it into 1 1/2"-2" chunks
3. Pour bacon grease, old cooking oil, pig blood or hog lard over it
4. put it out where the coyotes can get to it
5. Coyotes WILL eat it
6. Coyotes will die from stomach blockage because they will not be able to digest the foam

Sounds like a very slow agonizing death.

This trick works well...BUT..it is illegal in most places due to the likleyhood of Rover and/or other untargeted species eating the foam.

It is legal to hunt coyotes in NC. So I would just call them in and shoot them with a Crossbow. If you Shoot them legally you might be able to sell the fur to a trader I know people who used to get $25 a coyote. Also, If you go less legal .22 subsonic at night on that much land nobody will know a thing have it buried before morning.

PA just passed a law putting a $25 Bounty on coyotes that are killed. It is a nice little incentive to shoot a few.

I read that. Here in West Carolina they passed a law that there is no season and you can shoot them at night even with spotlight or night vision. I think I am still married with the new crossbow that is arriving today but may be pushing it if I get the NV that I want.

sadly the population has exploded. they are pack hunters and as the numbers grow human lives will be lost. again very sadly small childern are most vonerable!. Rumor has it the insurance industry transported them east to deminish the white tailed deer herds and ease Deer vs auto claims, I read a story of a young able bodied young man from Ga was taken to the ground by three of them and was able to reach his firearm and get them off of him,, we must aid in contoling this population !

We have them in Johnston County as well. A few weeks ago I had four of them cross the road in front of my truck. They were moving pretty quick. I slowed down and they stopped and turned to look back at me when they were about 250 yards away. This was only about a mile from my house.

I have tried telling my wife she needs to be careful when letting our Pomeranians out at night and in the early morning. We have a perimeter collar system and the dogs will not leave our yard but they would be easy pickings for a coyote.

Thats very close to me Im off of falls of neuse. I used to work in Youngsville and would hunt on a parcel of land behind our main large warehouse. I heard something running and 3-4 deer come running through the clearing. About 15 seconds later 2 coyotes come in after them. I was unaware until that time that we had them in the triangle.

I just wanna shoot a big ol bear

I have a couple of thoughts on this. I'm pretty sure a pellet gun does not fit under the category of a fire arm and can be used inside the city limits. It may vary by locale, but it's worth checking into. I once filled a rat's hole with starting fluid thinking it might make him come out. I learned that it is heavier than air and filled the hole. When it didn't come out I decided to throw a match at it to see if that would make him run out. When that match hit the ground the KABOOM was WAY more than I expected. It shook the adjacent buildings and honestly scared the crap out of me. Needless to say, the rats did not come out and I never saw them again. A can or two in the yote den might give similar results. If you try it, DON'T DO IT FROM CLOSE RANGE! I don't know what the neighbors might say either. Good luck.
Mike

where I live a pellet rifle is considered a firearm. I know from experience.
