Few years back: A pack of 7 attempted to circle me as I walked out from my stand one sept night. Arrow in one hand, knife in the other, I cut the lead dog off from the pack and chased him across the field. They get stupid sometimes. The key is be meaner then they are. Pretty well always carry a gun now, even if it's just a 22. Could have had yourself an extra yote.

I'd yell, "Bad dog! Bad dog! Go away!". (Thank's Marty's)

First, did you have a deer costume on? If not:

Best to curl up into a ball into the fetal position because you're done if a 30# coyote puts you on the menu.....especially during a super moon!

You definitely wouldn't want a mini sledge in your hand.....best to throw that in the bush and get rid of it ASAP!

Probly a teritorial thing getting close to mating season warm weather will sometimes start them early.
Stand big make noise and dont back down its a dog not a bear
One thing to remember is rabies beginning stages there is no visible signs ie foaming from mouth staggering etc , but they loose there fear get aggressive
hammer will put them down just fine in a pinch but would definatly be packing a gun from now on

Some animals will behave differently than expected.
A single dog is not too worrisome but get a few together and it doesn't feel too comfortable. Carry some sort of gun. I guess one of the smallest repeating arms you can legally carry would be a Mares Leg or ranch hand in 22 or 22 mag.
At 20 feet a 22 would have done the job easy.
You were setting snares this time , when you check snares what gun do you bring along?

You could have let him take a small nibble, it'd be a good argument for an Atc. It would be harder to argue against if you can point out a few scars. I jest somewhat but I'd like to be able to carry a pistol.

Hand to hand combat!
Cave his head in and then tell an awesome story.

I always have the 10/22 with me minimal.
Shot a few over the years that were just outright aggressive...one on one is ok still scarey though but man when you get three running around you running in and out the little 22 sure puts calm to the chaos.

You need to get him close - close enough for the hammer!
Seriously though , a .22 is light and works well fir that stuff

Yeah, I can be a sarcastic SOB sometimes. Glad to see that you have a sense of humour.

That type of incident is highly unusual and I would find it concerning as well. The immediate thing that comes to my mind is RABIES! Animals lose their natural fear of man and become aggressive. Territory or not, the coyotes around here run and will quickly vacate the area when you come across them. There's a lot of hunting pressure here so that helps to instill the fear of man in them.

It was probably a once in a lifetime incident but if you have a crazy coyote in your area I'd definitely carry a rifle with me......maybe even something like a .223 so you could shoot him at a distance if you see him.

Here's another theory to think about......Maybe he was a hybrid Coydog, a mix of coyote and dog. A coyote without the natural fear of man from being part dog might explain the odd behavior. Just putting that out there.....

If he's a man eater, hang a whole bunch of snares up around you like the legendary "Wall of Death" and just use yourself as bait!

Call out, "Here nice Puppy. Come to Daddy."

I got charged by one about ten years ago. We saw each other at about 50 yards and he started running at me, I missed the first shot, reloaded and put the second one in him at about 10-15 feet. He was covered in mange and scabs, hardly had any hair on him at all. I don't know if he had rabies but it was unnerving. It's just another good reason to pack a gun.

Nah it's not rabies. These things are caused by no Hunting zones such as canada's national parks system!

Your initial advice was no joke, it was correct! Also don't forget to cut your own guts open so it's easier for animals to eat you. The blade must be no more than 1.5" in total length (as this is the size studies have shown is the largest size of genitalia attached to antis/lieberals et al who promote such systems of thought. Another study has shown that those suckas are in fact, ball-less and have no spirit).

LOL!!!!

Now, now... Can't be all that uncommon as we have many reports right here alone. That doesn't even include many famous stories of Coyote attacks such as the Woman that was actually killed by yotes.

As for me? Nothing to close to actually being attacked. Had a couple come in whining with hunger pains and sounding like any other begging pooch when doing up a Deer this past year though... It was after dark so I didn't bring them in/make a play for them.

If it were mid spring I'd say territorial behavior, protecting a den with pups.

This time of year I'd suspect rabies.

That's one of the key symptoms. The infected animal looses all natural fears.

With high fox and Skunk populations it is something to consider. And the higher those two populations the greater the concern.

Of course it could just be a Coyote some tree hugger has been feeding.
Either way, not an animal I would trust.
