Coyote's are growing in population down here, becoming fearless pests in some areas. A farmer I know was surrounded by a pack of about 20-30 one night, they wanted to eat his dog. He and a friend both had shotguns, kept them away without firing, but he was spooked by their aggressiveness and numbers. No natural predators other than large dogs and people in this region. My sisters older German Shepard went after 3-4 in her back yard this past summer, in the city......dog got a mouth-full of fur, and they ran away. Not sure how she would of come out had they all attacked? I've got a fearless, very dominant, 140 lb female Great Dane raised on a northern Maine farm. In her prime she wouldn't hesitate to take on a bear, let alone snap a coyote in half in 2 seconds. Point being.........it's nice to have a good dog or two around, keep the riff-raff away and or signal. Good companions, but they are work.

Hunting accidents, I've read about them locally, guys falling out of tree stands and breaking their necks or idiots mistaking them for game. Don't understand someone mistake a man for a deer or moose, crazy...to say the least. Fishing is more my thing unless I need meat to survive. Had visions of your lake producing walleye for lunch, how the heck does a Canadian lake have only bass....fished out and restocked?

Close, but no cigar JPM. Here's a link to my exact location:

https://maps.google.ca/maps/ms?authuser=...dg=feature

I am very excited to get a pair of dogs in the spring. Mostly to keep the bears n coyotes and deer and rabbits out of my gardens and berry patches and fruit trees. A little companionship on some of my longer solo trips would be welcome as well. I don't see the coyotes as a pest quite yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they get a little too used to my new house.

My lake is at the height of land, spring fed, flowing out at each end. It is the top of the area's watershed. There are some perch in it as well as some rock bass, but none worth eating. Once bass get into the smaller lakes, they choke everything else out quickly, including pike and walleyes. In fact, my experience in the north of Ontario, is that the majority of backwoods lakes are pike and bass only with no walleye. The walleyes stick to the big lakes and rivers at the bottom of watersheds with trout (rainbow, brown, speckled, lake, and splake) staying in the clearer higher portions of the watersheds which are mostly toward the Algonquin area. Unless you are close enough to the great lakes, in which case there is room enough for everyone. And yes, there was a lot of lake stocking mischief that happened up until the 60's or so, that resulted in devastated fish populations, carried out ironically by fishing camps.

Oh, and to answer you question from the doomtard thread, no we have no shower. We have a 32 liter stock pot (as seen on the vids on the barrel) that we use for "baths". I am planning on building a bath house this spring with a rocket mass heated cast iron tub and a solar heated gravity fed shower system.

Popcorn is now being served.
