    Coyotes killed our family dog!

    Well over the weekend our little Boston Terrier was attacked and killed by a pack of coyotes. My 8 year old boy is pretty upset as this was his little buddy. Now my boy is dead set on killing coyotes so I am going to try and get some snares and see what we can do. My question is, does anybody have any suggestions on what type of snares to buy? We also have a lot of deer on our property so I want to make sure I get something that won't affect the deer. This will be my first rodeo as far as snaring goes so any and all advice is welcome. Thanks guys.

    I have never used snares for coyotes but sorry to hear about your dog.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    You can get deer stops for your snares. But you might also try footholds and take care of them that way. Deer just pull right out of those.

    Sorry about your dog. I haven't used snares either, coyotes like deer trails to so you catch deer once and a while. Not sure how to prevent that, someone here should be able to help you out, good luck.

    I would set snares and break out the rifles. NO MERCY!!! Lol. Sorry about the dog, they got our ranch neighbors dog a couple years ago. Been full on assault on them buggers. Any in range get a lot of bullets heading their way.

    Sorry about your dog, that's a bummer. I'm thinking a spotlight and a rifle would solve a few problems.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I have tried to call them in on a couple of different occasions and have not been able to get them in. The only reason that I am going to try and use snares is so that my boy can participate a lot more by actually learning how to set snares, checking them etc... I think he will get more out of checking the snares everyday since we have not been able to get them to come in to a call, which he can get bored of when nothing comes in. Plus he has been with me hunting and has shot his .22 a lot already so I am thinking this should keep him motivated to keep after the yotes.

    Very sorry about your boys dog. We can hardly keep a house pet alive between the coons, coyotes, bobcats and mountain lion around our house. We lost two of our three cats in the last few months.
