Woke up from a sound sleep at just after 1:00AM by a strange noise last night. Thought may have been a stray dog out side so laid in bed for a few minutes to see if I heard the noise again. The dogs were going crazy barking in their pens so decided I had better get up and go get them inside and lock the out side access door. When I walked out to the living room and the door to the pole barn there was Kare putting her boots on to go lock the pups inside. She had also heard the noise but had a different take on it than I did and her take made more sense than mine.
She thought in may have been a coyote that got in the electric fence I have around her flower gardens to keep the deer out. Makes sense to me as our dogs have gotten in the fence before and made some ungodly noises.
So I guess this old fellow is going to be going out with the caller and decoys just to make sure no coyotes are in the area. think I will invite Eric for a early breakfast and coyote shoot.
