Although I live across from a park, I am zoned rural. We have a lot of deer and turkey, very few fox and 'yotes.

So I'm wondering where all my bunnies have gone. I decided to set up an Amazon Cloudcam and got a nice shot of a coyote. I figure I'll track his patterns a bit before I dispatch him, make sure it's not a mixed husky or similar.

I decided to set my trusty driveway alarm ($10 Harbor Freight) to notify me when he's out.


Here some fat guy is setting up the alarm's transmitter:



Here's the suspect entering:

It's under his nose in the 3rd video.
Bastard ran off with it.

Plus a bowl of antifreeze could hurt an animal not intended for and is a painful death by kidney failure.
Took care of a guy who chugged a gallon of full strength anti-freeze years back. Nasty way to kill ones self. And effective.

Just shoot em

I'm assuming he had drunk too much for making him drink a bottle of Vodka to fix, or it was too long afterwards?

So I set up a nice Hide last night from my new under construction kitchen. Setup a table and put blankets over most of the windows. I had Saran wrap on my opened window where my AI/AX in 6br w/75hr vMaxes waited. The ambient light and lit reticle S&B scope would have made this easy. The coyote didn't show, so I followed 4 deer with my reticle as practice. Wife thinks I may have lossed it.

Have a beard traps are great- fill the trap with old bones- chicken- ribs- all
Sorts of stuff

Close trap

Now animals cannot eat the food but they will try

Get a motion sensor to turn on a light in the TV room so you know there are animals at the trap

So I have my hide setup, dark windows, shooting bench, even down to the saran wrap covering the opened window. After whipping the old man in Scrabble (486pts) , I arrive home around 10pm and am changing the battery on my Schmidt Bender scope when my 'yote saunters across the back yard. He's probably 50 yds out when my 75gr vMax slams into his chest. Probably dead before he collapsed. Looks like no exit wound, I suspect the VMax fragmented completely, releasing all energy into the chest cavity. Gradous spun up a 6mm BR Kreiger LV 10 twist,.

Nice coat, decent size.

I had a similar instance also. Kept having cats come up missing, which I hate also but they are great at keeping mice away when you are surrounded by farm land. Neighbor down the road had animals come up missing also. I shot 3 of them. 175gr. BTHP does a number on them. Here is one at 390yds (pup) ended up getting 2pups and the mother. I got the pup first thinking it would lure the others out to help it.
