    I was letting my dog out to do her business tonight and when I opened my back door there were two 'yotes about 10 yards from my patio, looking right at me. My dog immediately started barking and was fixing to charge outside to defend her territory. It's a good thing I was able to close the door before she got out. At less than 4lbs, she'd be a quick snack for a coyote.

    By the time I got one of my rifles out of the safe and got back outside, the coyotes had retreated to the tree line, about 100 yards away. Unfortunately, it was too dark to take a shot. I was able to catch them in the beam of my Surefire a couple of times before they disappeared.

    Normally, I carry my G36 when I let the dog out at night but tonight, of course, it was detail stripped on the kitchen table. I definitely could have tagged at least one of them had I had the Glock in my hand.

    This isn't the first time coyotes have been on my property; I've just never seen them that close to the house. I'm sure I'll get another chance.

    Put your left-over table scraps at the 100-yard treeline everyday at 5 PM.

    Then sit by the window with your rifle for an hour.

    You should be able to improve the neighborhood in just a few days.
