As has been suggested before, the last several paragraghs talk about the eventual merger and, probably, a new breech of S Beach.

WOW! In Plymouth I thought they were crazy when they started caging the plover to prevent predation.

Are these endangered species or pets?

Seems to me Wile'E coyote must have been munching on these birds long before there were sharp shooters. The poor 'yotes take the heat because we have over developed the coast and trashed the habitat. In my opinion we should let nature take it's course and concentrate on preserving the physical habitat.

Paranoid Jim, who occasionally manifests himself on my left shoulder, thinks those protected plover will be the end of all of us when they spread a hideous plauge on one of their journeys from South America. Or Maybe I just got too much sun at the clave:hehe: :hehe:

Drew and I saw a coyote on the causeway last spring. I don't know if anyone saw the sign at Larry's PX but it said " coyotes, foxes and Yankee fans use the back door." I guess they know a opportunist when they see one.

...and I bet the coyotes could help the fishin by munchin on a few seal pups too...

Anyhow, it's the seemingly time lapse geology we are able to witness, in that area, that fascinates me.

At pre dawn on Sat I saw a Coyote the size of a German Sheppard... casually walking thru someone's lawn in Chatham. Big enough to be a safety issue for those with small children.

I'm surprised at the opposition to put them down. Handful of Coyotes vs. refuge for thousands of endangered birds...shouldn't this be a no brainer:eyecrazy:

Pretty cool that they can swim across the channel tho

I saw a coyote Friday at the tub. They are pretty sharp animals.
They might just chase the Ironman on his early morning outings, especially if he has no waders on .

At least we are fortunate that they don't shut down the beach, as they do on Plum Island for months, to protect the plovers! Personally I have nothing against the coyotes....HOWEVER.....if they start carrying fly rods....shoot them! :smokin:

I say open the refuge to coyote hunters during the coyote season (beginning of November through end of February). I know a few guys who would jump at the chance, and the hunting pressure would likely drive off the coyotes foolish enough to come across the ice. Rifles chanbered up to .22 long rifle (most use a .17 Hornady magnum) or handguns up to .38 caliber (i.e. a 357 magnum with a long barrel for accuracy).
A member at Bass River Club fashioned a real sweet hat and mits out of one he took near the Dennis dump last year.

FlyDoc we'll make you the offical sharpshooter for the Forum. You must get your ID taken at the CAC.

I think I saw this same Coyote...or one just like him.

I was walking from the causeway up to the Rip Ryder and was just beginning the ascent up to the driveway entrance for RR. When out of nowhere, a coyote, at full gallop, appeared out of the bushes on the right, jumped clear over the road, and was gone just as fast as he had appeared. I was floored by his size.

And...no...there weren't any hallucinogens in my PowerBar.

But it definately made me think twice about all those late night jaunts o'er South Beach on foot.

Seuss- definitely has me thinking about packing my mini-Glock 9mm in my fly vest- but only for self-defense, should the need arise....
