    All my EDC shit is in a backpack within reach, I have a tin of Skoal in my left sock, an iPhone 7 in my left front pocket, a white handkerchief in my right rear pocket, a wallet in my front right pocket, an Omega Speedmaster on my left wrist, a Fitbit Charge 2 on my right wrist, glasses on my ears and nose, a S&W Model 60 in an IWB at 4 o'clock and a gold wedding band on my left ring finger

    No photo from me. I no longer have an EDC need. I seldom leave home, but if I do, I select carry options based on my perceived opinion of the potential threat. That said, I spend most days/nights in the house in comfy clothing or pajamas. I am never more than a step or two from some type of personal protection so I don't bother with pocket or belt carry unless I go outside. If I go outside in the daytime, I carry differently than if I go outside at night.

    As I write this post, it is 20 degrees outside on the way to about 15 degrees. When my dogs need to go out overnight to pee, I will be just inside the door watching. I am a wimp regarding the cold*. The dogs will have to take their chances with the coyotes.... and hope I get the door open with rifle at the ready should the need arise...

    * = Example: I have on flannel pajamas, a sherpa lined hoodie, a sherpa lined canvas vest, and a hunting cap with fur ear flaps in the down position. I am still a bit chilled as the temp here in my room is only 74 degrees.

    On topic: I have my G22 & S&W Performance Center ported .45 ACP here on my desk and a Gerber Strongarm and a SOG Field Pup along side...plus several paper clips and about 5 flashlights.

    Update - 3 AM, 5 hours after above post: Temp is now 12 degrees. One of my well house heaters is very old (the other is near new). It quit working sometime during the last 2 hours. Well house had dropped to 34 degrees. Fortunately, last Spring, I bought several high quality heaters when they went on sale and put them in storage. They are the same model as the one I have working already. I unpacked one and its now in service. So much for not venturing out in the cold. I'll stay up awhile and monitor the warming progress.

    On topic: I stuck a Bersa Thunder 380 Plus (15 +1) in my jacket pocket for a companion during this little project and carried a Streamlight UltraStinger along with a Schrade Ultimate Survival assisted folder. :cool:

    Nothin at the moment. I just went outside, in the cold and dark to deposit a bag of trash in the big bin. Didnt get attacked by persons, coyotes, mountain lion bob cat or bear. come to think of it never have. Although I did see a mountain lion years back up by the barn. Sometimes I tap on the back door, empty handed, glass to shew the birds out of the cat food. I venture out into the timber with nothing but my pocket knife. ..... :bigeyes:The need hasnt risen since 1969 to shoot any one.

    Frank,

    I like your post #10 (above). I am killing time before the start of LIVE PD, so I decided to pen this little story.

    I think my OK coyotes might be more aggressive than your MO coyotes. They often come up to my barn and carport to eat my feral cats (I estimate at I have lost about 50 cats to the coyotes and owls since 2010). They have attacked the neighboring rancher's dogs twice. 2 years ago I went out about midnight and had two bracket me in the driveway - one to the west and one to the east. I had only a Glock G22 with me at the time. My G22 has no light. I had a good clear 10 yard shot at the east one as it was right under a security light. It took me a few moments to comprehend my situation and I yelled as I drew my pistol. The coyotes stood their ground. I dropped the east one with the first shot. The west one howled and moved behind a large lilac bush. I did not go after it into the dark. I went into the house and got a shotgun with light mounted and went out in the front yard looking for the one that moved back but found nothing.

    I shoot coyotes from a 2nd floor window set up just to shoot from. I mow out 125 yards for a wildfire break and to be able to see what is out there. I don't call the coyotes, they come up on their own. One neighbor has set out poison on his large ranch (after making sure that I knew to keep my dogs safe - which was nice but my dogs have never gone on his property) which has cut the population somewhat but as recently as 3 weeks ago, I had 3 distinct packs on my small farm/ranch - all with 600 yards of the house. I would rather be armed when outside than not.

    Sidenote: My post #7 above shows 3 items. I used the flashlight to see in the well house which is very dimly lit while I used the knife to open the sealed box to get out the new heater and had the .380 just because it made me feel better... :D

    Here are two rascals that came up to within 100 feet of my well house at 2 AM in April 2014 that did not seem to care if I was there or not (I was trying to ambush a skunk that was eating cat food overnight - waiting for it to get well away from the house). I did not let them get any closer. I don't normally photograph the critters but these were unusual as the #2 did not seem to care that I had just killed the #1 and just stood there looking at me..

    Good shootin'!

    Your 'yotes must be either really brave or really dumb. Ours scatter like rats when people show up. Of course, they get shot at a lot around here...

    Springfield XD Mod 2 45 ACP or XDs 9 mm, depending on outfit,
    phone for light and communication, and with electronic Bible
    a $20-30 one-handed opening knife (Gerber or S&W usually) because I hate losing expensive knives,
    extra mag
    CC permits covering whatever state I'm in,
    keys--a decent last ditch weapon, when wielded effectively.

    Them are some pretty helathy looking coyotes in the pic retired1. There are a lot around here, hear them a lot but dont see them often. Mostly on my game cameras. Biggest problem here are wild dogs. they have done more damage than coyotes. Only coyote I have shot was deer hunting a while back. Black Powder season and I was returning to the house when we ran into each other up by a pond. It came around a cedar tree and froze about 45' in front of me. I used my one shot, saved me from having to unload it and waste pellets. Biggest threat to the cats are owls and hawks. they seem to like the yellow ones best. I see bobcats and fox quite a lot. I dont bother them or the owls or hawks. Have 3 bald eagles that have been hanging around for a few years. Starting to get a lot of bear reports. Looks like they are moving back in the part of the state along with Mountain Lions. Coyotes and white tail deer along with bears are good at adapting to the changing area. New York City has a thriving coyote and deer population. looks like you have a hand on the situation at your place, if thats possible. I think they will be here well after the human population is gone.

    Seems like the only effective coyote control is wolves (latest example I know of is Yosemite NP). Considering what wolves need for food supply, that probably ain't a doable answer.

    [Oops. That's Yellowstone NP.]

    The rise of coyote populations is linked to the decline of wolf population. Might be a case of the Cure is worse than the disease. Human population has pretty well screwed up the balance of nature.

    We would need to proceed in the wolf's manner: track coyotes to their dens, dig them out, kill pups and all. Not for the genteel.
