Needing to ask what is a good way to keep the coyotes away from my house. They are not scared at all. They are not scared of my two big outside dogs at all. They started coming in close to my house about a month ago usually around 10 at night until about 4 in the morning. I have shot in the air when they get too close. I can not level out my shot because I have cows and horses and I can not see where they are in the dark. I can not let my little dogs go out after dark. If I do I stay close to them. But this only causes the coyotes to come in close later in the night. I mean really close! Within 20 yards of my front door. I have pot belly pigs in the barn but they do not seem to mess with them. I have considered they may be rabid but not like I can say come here let me check ya out. Anyone else haveing problems with coyotes? And what can I do about them? I do not live close to the woodline. I have about 15 acres of pasture between my house and woods.
