Surrounded by COYOTES while hiking alone

Probably not the scenario to be in for a hiker, but what if you’re on a hike.
And, you get this feeling that something is near you, not by another human but by a pack of howling coyotes.
When we hear coyotes howling its usually from a safe distance.
How would you handle a pack of coyotes howling closer to you?
Most of the time when I’m on a hike, I carry a pistol and depending on the state that allows me to carry my AR-7 or Keltech 2000.
In this video a hiker is unarmed on a hiking trail with coyotes nearby, how would you react?

Here’s the excerpt from Jessica Kirsh Youtube
“This is raw, uncut footage I captured with my GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition on my very first solo sunset hike as an Arizona resident. All of the sudden on my way back down a trail on Lookout Mountain ? in Phoenix, I found myself surrounded by howling coyotes in every direction! ?

Now at this point, I had only lived in the desert for a little over a year. So this was my first experience hearing coyotes howl this intensely, where I wasn’t in the “safety” of my fenced in backyard.

Watch me try to be as stealth as possible getting back to my car parked at the trail head! ?”

Have you seen a Coyote with Five Feet before?

Well, this deformed coyote has them.

In a Facebook post shared by Mac Frederick, we see a coyote with five feet. This beast has a strange mutation that has given it an extra foot. These incredible pictures and x-rays prove the five-footed coyote is for real.


The above and below x-ray photographs show the skeletal makeup of this one-of-a-kind mutant coyote.

What would cause such a deformation in this otherwise normal coyote? A genetic defect certainly caused the growth of the extra foot. Could it have been influenced by toxins this coyote came in contact with, or was there a mix-up during gestation? The reasons for this mutation may remain a mystery for some time.

Coyotes has a big Impact on Deer Population

When coyotes pack up, big game is no match for these killers. Witness this stunning game camera footage of a whole pack of coyotes on the hunt.

Seeing fewer deer this season? Well a coyote pack this size or larger just may be devouring your game.

A single coyote is a formidable predator. Now, combine multiple coyotes, and their killing power increases to large game with no issues. Craig Kavajecz shared on Facebook a video that just may shock you. At least eight coyotes by our count make their way down this trail in search of prey. Now, that is a team of killers with a swagger.

If coyotes are in your hunting territory, let them know who’s boss. If not, expect to see less game next season.
