A word from the wise (and the members of the DNR)...if you value your pets, your children, or YOURSELF, kill every single one of those mean varmits that you see. I know of people, pets, and children being attacked by coyotes.

True story, 2 years ago I was deer hunting in WV. It was early, probably around 6:00 am and daylight was just breaking. I was about to climb the tree in my tree stand when suddenly a coyote came running at me as if he was going to tear me to pieces. I put a round from my .30 cal. carbine through his head.

Also my brother-in-law says that just about everytime he is in his tree stand 3 or 4 coyotes run around the tree not intimidated at all by a human presence. They are evil, and will attack anything.
