Brave coyote in NW Arkansas!

Well Dad was putting the horses up at the barn last week and leading the youngest one in the barn when the horse jumped. He could not figure out why the horse jumped and looked in the field and saw a coyote standing around 25yds away. He climbed the fence and the coyote stood there he yelled at it, then waved his arms the ole song dog never moved. Dad got a knife out (his words I wont type) and started walking towards the coyote about that time my labs come running in and chased the coyote off well its close to dark when all of this happens dad yells at the dogs they come back after a 200yd lil chase. Then they come back so does the coyote. Well this happens about 4 times and the coyote comes right back after the dogs and then stops. Dad did not have a gun at the barn, but he took one back up there after all of this...pretty brave coyote if you ask me! I have watched hunting vids where folks use dogs to coyote hunt and draw the coyotes in closer just as this happened.

What do you think? Brave coyote, just wanting to play, rabies, trying to lure the dogs out?

Went up around the barn/arena and setup and called a coyote in a few days later, but could not get a clear shot of the songdog.

Coyotes will use a female in heat as a decoy to pull dogs out to the pack so they have a nice warm meal.

They are smart, and know what they are doing. I agree with Tony, it's probably a lure.

I knew they would do that, just odd that before the female labs were in sight of the coyote and dad was walking towards it in the field it just stood there. If I had been there my truck would have been REAL close and one of my 1911s or the AR would have been put to good use. He left an X2 with turkey loads up there so maybe he will get a shot at one of the little critters.

I've seen that one. Bad thing for the pack that time. Lured our Ridgeback out. Three dead yotes later, they gave up. He was fine.

If coyotes are used to humans they become complacient. the barn areah has probably become a usual feeding areah for it with plenty of mice, rabits, barn cats, etc. to feed on. If it became hungry enough the fact that a human was around was not going to deter it from its usual buffet areah.


We have them in the rail yard @ work and they dont pay attention to us at all when they are hunting. sometimes walking within -30 feet of you and not even giving more than a glance in your direction.

havent had a problem with them yet in the 2 years theyve been there and the ferrel cat and mice population is prety much non exhistant any more.
