Walkabout In The Weminuche Wilderness

Herschel Smith · 05 Aug 2018 · 39 Comments

"There are no socialists in the bush" - HPS All of my physical training only barely prepared me for the difficulty of the Weminuche Wilderness (pronounced with the "e" silent).  It's National Forest land, not National Park.  The Department of Agriculture no longer prints maps of the area, so we relied on NatGeo for the map, and it's good, but not perfect. We have a lot of ground to cover, including traveling with firearms, the modification I made to one of my guns for the trip, the actors…… [read more]

Coyotes Everywhere!

BY Herschel Smith

Via Kenny and WiscoDave, this:

There aren’t many places in the U.S. where coyotes aren’t breeding pups, including Central Park in New York City, Scotten said. The canines’ native habitat was once the dry, open expanses of the western United States. But like humans, coyotes have slowly expanded their territory across the nation by quickly adapting to disturbances in their natural habitats.

Coyotes have learned to thrive in the same urban development that has caused other predator populations to decline. They can cross bridges, swim canals, and navigate sidewalks while hunting for food, Scotten said.

A coyote’s dream home, though, would be in a suburb like Bloomingdale, where densely packed developments are surrounded by farms and pastureland — a small taste of the open range prairies they used to roam.

“Now, especially in areas like Bloomingdale, the coyotes appear to be living in rural environments but coming in to urban areas to get food since its easier,” Scotten said.

Humans likely brought the first coyotes to Florida to train hunting dogs in the 1920s, but many scientists believe they now fill the role in Florida’s ecosystem that red wolves left behind. The animals help keep Florida’s rodent, raccoon and fox populations in check, but are known to prey on cattle, turkeys, chickens or unsuspecting house pets.

And humans too.  Like The Alaskan says:

Lethal control works. Alaska uses aerial wolf control to manage wolf populations as well as long term hunting and trapping seasons with generous bag limits. Wolves will have dramatic impacts on moose and caribou populations if allowed to increase in numbers unchecked. Natives in western Alaska will tell you that there was never any moose in western Alaska until wolf suppression was initiated. Moose in Alaska have been expanding their range because of wolf (lethal) control. State Fish and Wildlife personnel use aircraft to control wolf populations. Abundant moose and caribou populations are the result.

Your pig problems could be managed the same way. Aerial lethal suppression coupled with an open hunting season on pigs until you achieve the numbers, in terms of managed populations, that you want.

If eradication is your goal, then lethal removal is the only option. If the State is serious, your pig problem can be solved.

Remember, countless millions of bison, packs of wolves, plains grizzles and the prairie chickens (extinct,) were removed from the great plains with single shot front-stuffers (in large part.)

The scoped AR seems IMO, to be the best platform for ground based pig control. What fun!

We’re just not killing them.  If we don’t kill them because of gun laws, then they’ll kill your pets and sometimes hunt you down too.  Make your choice.

Aggressive Coyote Packs In Urban Areas

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 4 weeks ago

First, there is Texas.

Two joggers were attacked by a coyote in Frisco, Texas on Monday morning, police confirmed.

Sheri Devore and Marcia Foster were heading home from their 45-minute run around 5:30 a.m. Monday when the animal allegedly approached the two women and “lunged” at Foster, according to Fox 4.

“It knocked her down. I was like trying to grab her to get up. And the overwhelming thought in my head was: ‘just stay up.’ If you go down, that’s it,” Devore told the news station, adding the coyote didn’t appear to tire and “just kept coming and coming and coming.”

Fortunately, the pair was rescued by a driver, Michael Harvey, who was on his way to work when he witnessed the terrifying scene.

“Right before I got to the Panther Creek there, I [saw] two ladies in the middle the street waving their hands,” Harvey told Fox 4.

“There were like trying to move away from it in the middle of the street. Trying to get it to stop. Trying to make noises and getting it to stop to scare it off, but it wasn’t going,” he continued, adding he was surprised by the animal’s lack of fear “even when I [tried] to pull up on him blowing the horn.”

Next, there is inner city Charlotte.

Proof of Charlotte’s fast growing inner city coyote population showed up Monday on a home’s security cam, when “a pack” of up to four was caught on video walking through a yard.

The sighting was in the Sedgefield area of South End, about 1.5 miles south of uptown.

Donna Ragan, who works with Charlotte’s Second Harvest Food Bank, posted the video of on Facebook, noting the “pack of two to four coyotes” was filmed at 4:40 a.m. Monday outside her mother’s home in Sedgefield.

A 30-second clip shared by Ragan features as many as three of the animals wandering at the edge of the camera’s range, including one that comes up to the porch.

Ragan posted the video as a warning to homeowners to bring their pets inside at night.

She believes the coyotes are hiding during the day in the wooded areas that separate subdivisions.

“They honestly can’t help the situation that they have been put in as neighborhoods are sprouting up everywhere and they don’t have too many places to go,” Ragan told the Charlotte Observer.

How sweet.  The furry hair balls with big ears can’t help it.  I guess they would be warm and cuddly.  Why don’t you take them in and give them a blanket and warm place to sleep?

Actually, the first attack was a lone Coyote, while the second account doesn’t involve an attack, at least, none stated in this report.  But the attacks have happened, or they’re coming.

You carry a gun all of the time, right?  Hey, I wonder if Scott would think this is reason enough for someone other than him to have an AR-15?

Coyote Attacks In Sundry Places

BY Herschel Smith
3 months ago

Dogs being attacked by Coyotes has become a routine occurrence throughout the country.  But remember, it can happen to humans as well.

The child had just gotten off her school bus and was walking toward her house, located in a wooded area, when the coyote approached her and bit her on the leg, the television station reported.

Multnomah County Animal Services spokesman Jay LeVitre said the girl was taken to a hospital and treated in case the animal was rabid, KATU reported.

Michelle Dennehy, an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman, told KATU that in general, coyote attacks are extremely rare.

“With any animal, and coyotes are no exception, we see more problems when, for example, they’re being fed and they become habituated to an area,” Denehy told the television station.

What he said is a load of crap.  Ask any Raccoon hunter in the South who’s killing the ‘Coons and destroying his hunting?  Or go out in the field to a deer stand just before dawn or walk into any field around me just after dusk and shine a flashlight around you.  Tell me who has all those eyes?

As for deer hunting, one commenter told you why there are so few of them now.

Why are there more coyote sightings ___________ (fill in the blanks.

Deer and coyotes have expanded their ranges since the White man. They love the landforms and uses we create. Had three or four setting on the golf course in Snotsdale by my office for years. Kept the rabbit population in check, Bobcats galore too.

Hunters don’t hunt them anymore also helps. We have a standing order in my hunt club that every hunter must shoot a coyote whenever they see one. If you get caught NOT doing that, your out!

(One area I had hunted Coues for years in had an estimated 97,000 deer in it in 2000. Eight years later it was down to just over 14,000. Fish and Game at their annual meeting said it was ML’s. Tags were no more than 50/year. They eat a deer a week in AZ.) … Trust them at your own risk, they appreciate the flexibility in your love of nature.

Folks, the country is going to have to deal with the notion of the hatred of guns and mankind’s dominion of nature as a moral mandate from God.  If America doesn’t come to terms with that, not only will the wicked humans in the inner city continue to prey upon other humans, but you won’t even be able to allow your own pets or children into the yard or on your porch without being closely supervised with an armed presence.  Perhaps you should ask if you can do that anyway?

As for deer hunting, it will perish as a sport if we don’t cull the Coyote population.

Why Are Coyote Sightings Spiking In Tacoma And Elsewhere?

BY Herschel Smith
3 months, 3 weeks ago

News from Washington.

“I’ve lived in Tacoma for 20 years. We’re experiencing definitely more activity,” said Sierra.

[ … ]

Fish and Wildlife suggest if people run into an aggressive coyote, make yourself look big, put your hands in the air and throw things at the animal if they get aggressive.

How about shooting them?  Oh, I see, you can’t discharge a firearm within the city limits without being considered a criminal by the cops.  Well, maybe there’s the answer to the question, yes?

Coywolves In Rhode Island

BY Herschel Smith
5 months, 2 weeks ago

WWLP.com:

WESTERLY, R.I. – (WPRI) — A New York man, who was visiting Rhode Island with his family, said he is still shaken after witnessing a coyote attack one of his dogs in the backyard of the home they were renting in Westerly.

John Burke and his family were renting a home on Kimball Avenue, which is near Misquamicut Beach. On Tuesday night, Burke was rinsing off in the outdoor shower when he heard his dogs growling from the yard.

That’s when he said he saw a coyote, face to face with his two Jack Russell terriers, 5-year-old Razz and 12-year-old Whitey.

Burke watched as the coyote snatched Razz up and run into the woods. He said he began running after it.

“As fast as I could,” Burke recalled. “I was screaming, ‘Razz! No! Drop her!'”

He followed the coyote through backyards and into the woods. Burke eventually caught up to it, but that’s when he realized Whitey was right behind him.

Burke said he went to pick up Whitey, and by the time he turned around, the coyote and Razz were leaving his sight.

“Coyote comes out right in the driveway, Razz decides to make a right and she goes into the brush. Coyote goes into the brush… she makes a squeal,” Burke explained. “Never to be seen again… until we found her.”

Burke said the Westerly Police Department, Misquamicut Fire Department and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) all responded to the scene, but could not find Razz or the coyote. The family put the message out to Westerly residents on social media, asking for help finding Razz.

Burke said it was a dog tracker that eventually found Razz’s remains more than 24 hours later.

He said the coyote that took Razz was anything but ordinary, even describing it as looking more like a “coydog.”

“It’s not a 20 pounder that’s going to hop over your fence and eat your chickens,” Burke explained. “This is something that I was smacking it in the face with a towel and it didn’t care. It was going to eat my dog no matter what.”

Now coping with the loss of Razz, Burke wants future vacationers and current Westerly residents to be aware of the incident, so it doesn’t happen to anyone else’s pet.

But it will indeed happen to other pets unless you’re prepared.  Do you have access to a gun at all times?

And how many times do I have to say this?  There are no Coyotes left.  They are all Coywolves, an admixture of Wolf, Dog and Coyote DNA.  They have the size and aggression of a Wolf, the lack of fear of humans of a Dog, and the adaptive capabilities of a Coyote.

Georgia Woman’s Dog Attacked By Coyotes

BY Herschel Smith
5 months, 3 weeks ago

AJC:

Trish Gallup was walking her three dogs Friday morning in Smyrna when one of them, Radar, just started running.

She told Channel 2 Action News that a pair of coyotes took three bites out of Radar, leaving Boomer and Tracker unharmed. Pictures showed the missing tufts of hair on Radar, an 85-pound Labrador.

A picture of a coyote on the path at the River Line Soccer Park on Oakdale Road was posted on Nextdoor, reports Channel 2, and many people responded saying they have also seen them around.

Wildlife experts told Channel 2 Action News that an attack on a large dog like Radar is unusual.

What isn’t unusual is coyotes in “transition areas” — think treelines or areas where cut grass fades into other types of vegetation.

Dr. Tina Johannsen with Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources told Channel 2 that they have received 650 calls into their regional offices about coyotes this year, which is a standard amount.

“They’re just going from point A to point B looking for something to eat,” Johannsen said.

Aren’t we all.

Johannsen recommended keeping cats and small dogs fenced in or on a leash.

She also wanted to remind folks that it’s legal and encouraged to kill the creatures.

For a second year, the “Georgia Coyote Challenge” is in effect. Those who kill the most between March and August could get a lifetime hunting license.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported that a spokesman said 83 hunters turned in a total of 195 coyotes during the 2017 challenge period.

That’s a big dog (in the video) and yet they still attacked him.  And note that what was once a lone predator is now roaming in packs.  Again I say, these aren’t Coyotes – they are Coywolves.  Killing them is the right way to handle them.

But there is this warning.

Animal advocates groups criticized the “challenge” by saying it doesn’t work and is inhumane.

Killing them doesn’t decrease the numbers, and besides that, even if it did, we shouldn’t do it.  Or something.

Gunfire Becomes A Dinner Bell

The Outdoor Wire:

Ethologist Dr.Valerius Geist in British Columbia is the former program director of Environmental Sciences at U. Calgary, and he is known world-wide for his studies and writings about large game animals. Val recently sent me an e-mail about something that hunters should be aware of.

What prompted Val’s e-mail is that he had just received a newspaper article from Germany http://wolfeducationinternational.com/wolfe-am-hochstand-auf-der-lauer-wolfe-at-the-high-stand-in-wait/ reporting that German researchers, analyzing photographs of traps, animal feces, tracks, and other traces, found 60 wolf packs are now living across the country,13 more packs than a year ago. Overall, there are now between 150-160 adult wolves in Germany.

In Val’s research on wolves and their relationship with people, which I described in an earlier article, http://www.theoutdoorwire.com/features/230658 he found that in countries where most people don’t hunt with guns or own them – Siberia, India, Kazakhstan, etc.– wolves are more likely to attack people. Whereas in North America, where firearms ownership is greater, when people fire shots toward wolves, typically they keep their distance.

The German article, however, reports something different.

German hunters are reporting that when they’re out in the woods, and they shoot a red deer, fallow deer, roe deer or wild boar, wolves immediately show up. It’s common knowledge that predators like wolves, coyotes, and bears will feed on the remains of game animals. However, in Germany the wolves don’t seem to want to wait until the downed animals have been dressed, they aggressively approach the carcass and the hunters.

[ … ]

According to Val, “This is the first report I have ever heard about wolves being drawn to hunter’s gunshots. However, that bears can and do attack hunters is definitely known in North America.” A number of those we contacted agree.

These are some of the responses.

Jim Low, a retired Alaskan game warden, says, “A gunshot on Kodiak Island attracts bears.  Many deer hunters have killed deer on Kodiak Island only to have a Kodiak brown bear show up and want to dine on venison.”

Joe Hosmer, former Pres. of the SCI Foundation, agrees. Joe says: “I have seen this black tail hunting on Kodiak Island. When a deer is shot the bears come running!  The hunter needs to give up the deer and move on,” unless you also have a bear license.

And then there’s this.

Hunters approaching a kill or a blood-trail with their single tracking dog are in danger of losing their dog to a wolf pack. In 2016 in Wisconsin, wolves killed 41 hunting dogs. https://www.wpr.org/record-number-hunting-dogs-killed-wolves-2016

Be careful out there.  A good dog will give his or her life for you.  And I’ll give mine for my dog.  After all, a man can’t live forever, and it matters how he dies.

Around these parts, a Coywolf doesn’t howl.  When I’ve been out with my dog at times, I just see their eyes.  They don’t announce their presence.  That’s why I carry a gun with me wherever I go.  I intend to make sure neither of us has to give our lives for the other.  I think General Patton had something or other to say about that.

Bears Just Don’t Care, And Coywolves Only A Little Bit

BY Herschel Smith

Charlotte Observer, news from Atlanta.

A Georgia woman screamed in fright as a bear climbed through an open window and into her minivan, tore up a child seat and ate her lunch.

“A bear beat me to my lunch today and is now hanging out in my van for over an hour and I have set the alarm off multiple times!” Carrie Watts posted on Facebook with her video of the bear.

Watts was working as a caretaker in a home Tuesday on Lake Burton, in the northeastern corner of the state, when she looked outside as the large black bear munched away., Atlanta Fox affiliate WAGA-TV reported.

The bear ate her sandwich, chips and cookie, Watts told WSB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Atlanta.

“I panicked. I started screaming,” she told WSB-TV.

She set her minivan’s alarm off multiple times to no avail, Watts posted on Facebook. The bear stayed in the vehicle for an hour before leaving, she posted.

I don’t think a car alarm is going to do the trick dear.  In other news of Coywolves, they are where you might least expect them.

A coyote has been terrorizing two East Bay neighborhoods, killing at least four dogs and injuring several others in people’s backyards in the past month.

One of the attacks happened last week in Danville when a coyote leaped a six-foot high fence of a home and went after two dogs who lived there. Though the dogs survived, other pets were not so fortunate.

Nine-year-old Lucy is recovering from surgery after a coyote attacked her in her own Alamo backyard on July 6. Kent Molinaro says he was in shock when he looked out the window and saw his Jack Russell Terrier.

“I see a coyote with Lucy in his mouth,” Molinaro said.

[ … ]

“All of a sudden he made a funny bark and I saw one of the two dogs being carried to the back fence of the yard,” said Danville resident Dave Bruce.

As the dog was being attacked, another pet nipped at the coyote until he dropped him.

And much farther to the East.

Police in Burlington, Massachusetts, are reminding residents to be vigilant after a coyote possibly attacked a dog on Thursday night.

Authorities said a Winn Street resident reported that a wild animal, potentially a coyote, came into her backyard at about 8 p.m. and grabbed her 9 pound Maltese, pulling it into the woods.

Responding officers searched the perimeter of the woods but were unable to locate the dog.

“This was a very unfortunate situation where a resident lost her beloved pet,” Burlington Police Chief Michael Kent said.

[ … ]

To prevent those attacks, police recommend the following tips:

  • Keep pets on leashes at all times if outdoors
  • Do not approach, feed, pet, or try to interact with wildlife
  • Don’t hesitate to scare or threaten wild animals with loud noises or bright lights

Hey, does a .45 ACP count as a loud noise?

I guess the moral of the story is that a bear just doesn’t give a shit about anything.  A Coywolf, only a little bit.

Man And Dogs Attacked By Coyote In South Carolina

News from Tega Cay:

Quintin Huseman said he was running near Lookout Park and Shoreline Parkway in Tega Cay on Saturday morning with his two dogs, Gracie and Lilly, when they were attacked by a coyote.

Lilly’s bite wasn’t too bad and Gracie scared the coyote away.

“It happened really quick. The coyote snuck up on her,” Huseman said. “By the time I turned, it was already coming towards me, and all I could think is, it was rabid.”

Huseman said he called police to report the incident.

“The concern I have is the two dogs are 90 pounds each, the coyote is probably three-quarters of the size of one of the dogs,” Huseman said.

I’ve never found it to be an issue at all to carry a gun with me when walking my dog.  I do it all the time.  Running is a different story from what I understand.  I don’t run so I don’t know from first-hand experience.

But runners ought to find a way to carry a gun when running.  There is equipment you can use.  Get it.  Develop a discipline of wearing and practicing with it.

It may save your life or the lives of your beasts.  Oh, and by the way, it was probably not a Coyote.  It was probably a Coywolf with mixed DNA.

Coyote Attacks Teenager In Massachusetts

BY Herschel Smith
8 months, 1 week ago

Via reader Wynn, Foxnews:

A coyote attacked a teen in the woods of Massachusetts over the weekend, Boston 25 News and other local media reported.

The incident happened in Swampscott, northeast of Boston, on Saturday night and paramedics rushed the 17-year-old victim to a hospital, according to the station. The circumstances surrounding the attack were unclear.

The Swampscott Police Department took to Facebook on Saturday evening.

“This evening in a wooded area between Burpee Rd and the upper Jackson Field, there was an incident involving a coyote bite,” authorities said.

They went on, “We urge residents to use extreme caution in any wooded area in town.”

Swampscott police said that they and environmental police searched the area but didn’t find the animal.

They also listed several precautions people can take when dealing with an approaching coyote.

“Walk with a walking stick, carry a noise maker, walk with a buddy,” they said in part.

Probably not a Coyote – probably a Coywolf.

Yea, I carry a noisemaker.  A very loud one.  And I walk with a buddy too.  His name is 230-gr .45 ACP fat boy.  He doesn’t mind it when I call him fat boy.

Say, don’t they have all of that gun control in Massachusetts anyway?

Meanwhile, TCJ correspondent Fred has joined a union and is on strike for better wages.
