    Seeing as she's in Broncos country I think that would be very hard to keep quiet

    I've been a few times, some family and friends are really big hunters. Some of my favorite gear that I use for all outdoor activities is a brand these guys showed me called Kuiu. I use their stuff for skiing, hiking, backpacking, biking. Basically if I am doing something outdoors, I am wearing it. That stuff is awesome.

    Have thought about it more than a few times, mainly for coyotes. Can hear them in areas...and know how much a predator they are of young deer and moose. $$$ for coyotes.

    Was driving though what I think was Fletcher, VT a few months ago and saw a huge coyotee swinging from a tree in a front yard.

    They've made a comeback in New Jersey too. They were extinct here up until the 1980s, but I saw one in the late 90s, and it's getting more an more common people here are seeing them.

    Coyotes are all over here in the local woods in Westchester. We had one kill a deer about 100 yards from my front door a month ago.

    My mother in law has an 80 acre farm in souothern CT. She used to raise sheep but after losing so many to coyotes they've given up.

    You'd think that the lambs would be ones killed but it usually was the mother who died defending her young.

    My father in law used to keep a rifle next to the window overlooking the field where the sheep were. He took several long range shots at a few coyotes but never got one.

    There are no outdoor cats in this area any more. Coyotes and fisher cats took care of them.

    Hey fwiw...if anyone ever thinks about picking up a pellet gun(squirrels...etc)...FORGET IT!..lol. Man my $50+ toy is a $50+ waste of $$. Should've saved the slip & returned it.

    Coyotes take deer and moose calves bigtime. Saw one in the middle of our road ~100yds off from VFW Pkway(W.Roxbury, MA) ~midnight several nights back in mid 90s. Of course there was some reserve just off an ajoining pkwy... ~1mi away...plenty of deer used to hangout...sooo.

    Try a Sheridan pump, works great on squirrels. Just an FYI though you'll never get rid of them. I took out 26 a few years ago and they kept coming. My father in law killed over 50 around his house and he's still overrun. The neighbors will just move in.

    They breed year round , I've read that they are the only animlas besides humans that do.


    Edit- Wow I just checked the current price of a Sheridan Blue Streak, it's around $200 now. Crosman bought out Sheridan.
    I've had mine for over 30 years I think it was about $50 back then. It's a quality USA made piece though. I doubt they are still US made now.

    Nothing against hunting but I think I'd have a hard time shooting a big animal like a deer or something.

    My neighbors are HUGE hunters. They travel yearly to Africa and go on these safaris. I think their living room alone has like 70 animal heads on the wall.

    They are very good about it though. Apparently when they hunt the villages in the area in Africa literally use every single part of the animals they hunt. Food, clothing, even bones are used for stuff.
