JF where the heck are you???? Not sure if you know I'm in Wyoming and unless we're up in the mountains...trees are hard to come by. Open is all we've got around here if its' not in the open...yote isn't dead...
Ever seen hunters use dogs to bring a yote in so they can shoot it???? Sometimes they use a pair sometimes just one... BUT dog lures the yote in close and hunter nails it... Not a hound either, not some dog who can run miles or whatever...no dog who has a double suspension gallop....sometimes a cur, sometimes just a good retriever...dog circles out like he's going to chase the yote then comes back...over and over a few times till hunter can get the yote in his sights....kills the yote... I watched one guy get six yotes in one sitting (an hour maybe two) and that included a shot that missed and the dogs brought that same coyote in for the kill shot. NOW take the dude with the gun away and add a kill dog to that mix an ambush would be rather easy. Dogs seem to be the Kriptonite for the Coyotes. If you haven't seen that stuff and you're into predator hunting I'd definately look up a DVD that has it on there. SURE is something to watch...
BTW JD I think the record out here for size of yotes is something around 50lbs? Hard to say for sure though, lots of people run them down in helicopters or snow mobiles and will leave them...we have so many I guess that the bounty can be had and still end up with enough for the need to control them by other means.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... Author unknown...
