    Good for them having "guardian dogs"...

    Obviously the old man thinks predators are more of a problem than she does.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    He was saying that in the past they have not had Coyotes that would bother the sheep. They ate some cats but left the sheep alone. Now there are what he is calling "ROGUES" starting to show up at other farms.

    Sounds to me like wolves or Coyotes with a heavy dose of wolf genes, are moving in and taking areas from the smaller Coyotes.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    I know a large sheep farmer with 5 Great Pyrenees dogs. All fully grown dogs that live out with the sheep year round. We wouldn't dare run hounds around there for fear of his dogs killing ours...

    Yet the coyotes are still thick there, he has a deadstock pile.....if you bait them...... they will come

    Sound like David's farm as far as the dogs, but I don't know anything about a pile of deadstock.

    Well if David decides he can get the wife on board.

    I'm out that way a fair bit.

    Dead stock piles just increase the population, they have more food so they make more babies, it is increasing the carrying capacity, bury the carcasses or have them taken away to get lower the incident of coyotes.

    No kidding. Same with ppl who set up bait piles for coyotes. Most of the time they are just feeding coyotes. Deadstock fees are almost 100$ per head, no wonder some farmers just dump them out back.

    It sure cuts into the thin profit margin, and it just encourages bad practices.

    If David is dumping dead stock in the back forty, all he is doing is paying off the coyotes. The coyotes have a ready supply of dead sheep, so why chase the live ones. Problem comes when the dead stock/baitpile runs out.

    Yep, I was talking about that with my dad, his dad used to get paid for dead stock as they would turn it into dog food and use the hide for leather, it got used, now you have to pay for it.

    I was sitting turkey hunting one spring, there was an odd smell, could not figure out what it was. As the sun game up and no birds around I decided to move, turned to get my bag which was a couple feet behind me and found out I was about 5ft away from a bloated up beef cow that was dragged out into the bush, at least it was not leaking yet.
