Went out for a walk with the hound today. He is 13 years old and still pretty spry for his age. Well 1/4 mile into the bush we come upon 3 coyotes feeding on a fresh kill. I was not armed but hound didn't care, he is a walker/rotti cross and hates yotes with a passion. He charged right away and scattered them and then was gone for 2 hours chasing and doing what he was born to do. Sooner or later his age will catch up to him. Pretty sure i won't have to ever put him down as he is out most nights keeping them away from the house and i have no doubt his age will trip him up sooner or later. Anyways the fresh kill was a pretty new fawn:

Foot in pic (Size 9) for scale. I collected what was left and buried it down 3 feet with the backhoe to keep them away:

I hate coyotes, I try to kill them anyway I can. Have killed 18 since last May, mostly with snares.

Stompy, we have had a 700 acre pasture highfenced for 30 years, the coyotes learn that it is a feed factory in May/June, in a few years you will need to check for slides quite often during this time of year, also it will become a bobcat magnet, they are just as bad as coyotes on fawns

I know all of this and check very often.
