i have also been haven problems with coyotes around my house and neighborhood. i have alittle dog that stays outside and everyother night he and my neighbors dog will bark all night, when they do that most of the time you can look out my backdoor and see them. me and dad have killed two or three in our yard and my neighbor has shot at that many or more. i belive that they a den close by we have looked around for one but we havent had any luck. my dad has been thinking about getting a trap and soaking some meat in antifreeze to put in it. i dont know how well that will work. i heard those calls worked really good. which kind is best the mouth calls or the audio calls ? where could i purchase one at ?
