Default @*#! coyotes

It has been the 8th night in a row I have been woke by my dogs barking like crazy. The first night I checked it out and seen nothing so I figured they seen a racoon. I was incorrect when at roughly the same time the next night they were at it again. I looked out and seen 5 coyotes feet away from my dog pen. I chased the away I thought, but an hour later they were back. I called the game warden and followed his advise of using loud fireworks and shooting a loud and sparking shells out of my shotgun he gave me and it didn't work either. I was told if I feel they are threating towards me or my dogs I can destroy them. If they weren't by my dogs I wouldn't care, but it just bugs me that my barking dogs didn't scare them off, and I got less than 20 yards away with a rifle and they just looked at me. Is there another way to scare them off, or should I just dispatch them. I hunt coyotes, but am kinda curious why I can get so close to them. My neighbors have a few goats, but they seem to leave them alone, but I think I need to take action before it gets worse. Thank you for any advise.

My first guess would be one of the female dogs may be coming into heat, yours or one of the yotes.
I would definately do my best to take as many out as possible.
Coyote numbers are increasing throughout the U.S. and the dangers of attacks are on the rise & increasing.

Good Luck

On my way to "VOTE" yesterday, I spotted a really small doe running accross the road approx. 150 yars in front of me
as I got to about the 50 yard spot, a Yote running at full throttle crossed the same area heading for the doe.

I am gonna set up tonight and take them out. I'm not gonna take a chance, I am gonna pop them all with my 270 and be done. I dont want them running off so i figured the 270 will pin them right there. I have noticed that there number are rising fast. When i hunt the state land i never used to see any, but the last two years I have seen quite a bit at all times of the day. My neighbor is on board too, he is gonna help, so between the two of us I think we can knock a few off. Thanks guys and I will keep you posted. I hope we get all 5.

I found a small buck this morning mauled about 75 yards behind my house. It clealry shows that it was chewed on by what I am gonna say were the coyotes. I had the game warden out and he took it, but am I allowed to post a picture of it on this site?

Tricky, don't see why U can't post that pic

PLUS, Coyotes will multiply quickly over the years if you don't thin them out. If i were you, I'd stay up real late one night..... IF YOU GET MY DRIFT...
ALSO if you deer hunt, deer don't take nicely to coyotes, if one comes in range of my stand, he/she is down, period. Me and Coyotes don't get along....

My good friend lost 2 full size german shepherds to a pack of coyotes in one encounter. Those rats may be after your dogs for food. Good luck at the ok coyote corral.

I was gonna set up tonight and take them out, but when I came home for my lunch break I had them in my back yard. I got two of them but the rest scattered. I neck shot them both with 22 , so I was a little quieter, dropped both where they stood. I couldnt get a clean shot at the other but will nail all that I see by my house. The first pic is the buck I found, and the other two are the dead yotes. Both shots were around 25 yards.
