    Wow, I am not gonna move to North Carolina unless I have a $10,000 night vision scope, drones patrolling with night vision, and a small army of people that can hit a bulls-eye at 1,000 yards on a consistent basis.

    Coyotes around my place run in a pack almost every night. I've only seen a single twice. One was injured or diseased, and the other was in the middle of the 2011 drought. I killed the one with the swollen up leg.

    Greybeard, I would have wanted to kill all of em'. Someone here must have taken out all the coyotes because we haven't seen any in quite a while.

    I do know of a neighbor with one of those night vision scopes that cost thousands of dollars...and at times I have heard what seems to be a 300 mag...and often in the middle of the night.

    I think it is my neighbor!

    Wish I could afford one of those sniper rifles!

    Here we can bait them and spot light them. They came on the farm once i emptied my PAP m92 ak47 variant on them. They have never been back in 5 years. They dont live far, i hear them almost every night but the don't set foot on my territory. They are actually pretty smart and if they understand that they are trespassing they stay right off. They know what waits for them here......
