    coyote on wing strut

    How do you secure one so that it does not go crashing through the roof of your neighbors house. I have a long history of things flying out the back of my pickup so I am a little concerned. Tips tricks and pics appreciated.

    Cram his head between the two struts or tie to the jury struts. Seen videos and pictures but certain people here don't want other certain people getting a hold on such media.

    Put him in a Hefty garbage bag and put him in the baggage compartment. Make sure you tie it shut tight enough so the fleas can't get out....

    Had 2 forty pounders in hefty bags the other day which got me thinking CG with all my survival crap. If I got one more what next. Fortunately I was low on fuel so question answered. Steve do you tie neck to front jury or behind front legs to jury.

    I tie on the struts when we're gonna drop them by the ground crew vehicle. The most foolproof is to tie (or zip tie) the front and back feet around the base of the struts. You can drag by the ground vehicle and let them drop.


    If it's ten below and you don't want to open door and window and lean out, than use 550 cord and tie them around the strut with a bow knot and leave one side of the tail long, loop it over the door and close the window on it. When you drag the drop spot, pull all the strings and let em drop.


    Don't try to drop them in the bed of the pickup. A 30 pound coyote can make a single cab's roof touch the seat backs.

    Mark,

    I want to hear that story, from the owner of the pickup!

    Put dead stuff in the pod!! best way to keep plane clean.

    Toss the front legs over the front strut, loop around body behind shoulder, then tie to front strut. I like to put stuff at Jury strut to keep them from sliding up and down. Add bungie action to keep things from moving while in flight.

    Removing the stick and putting a stick box over it allows for loads to be carried forward inside. Passengers can sit on loads also- be surprised how easy it is to ride on two deer when you need to!
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Gunner I assume the body of the dog hangs below the strut when tied around the base, is that correct? I like that better than uneven weight at the jury strut. Have you ever had zip ties break. I like the quickness of zip ties and I bet they hold tighter than 550 cord. I imagine those zip ties get brittle in the cold. Don't plan on dropping any but the idea sure sounds like fun.

    Rather then Harbor Freight zip ties, a little searching can turn up some high quality ones, even in all stainless.....used in securing cabling on solar system installs.

    I'd use these, as many as needed, they can be daisy chained to get any needed length, and best of all they can easily be worked with gloves on. https://titanstraps.com/ https://www.cabletiesandmore.com/sta...cable-ties.php

    FWIW:This is how we did it back in the early '80's. Ultralights, pusher ultralights especially, make the ultimate coyote getter, slow, and capable of a lot tighter turn radius then any fixed wing light plane. The gunner/pilot pictured was a customer of mine, back when I was selling the Pterodactyl line of ultralights. He figured out real quick, being a sheep rancher like he was, this configeration worked real well. I went out with him a few times and acted as his hauler, I carried up to three at a time, lashed to the hang cage sides using my tie downs rope.

    But it’s easier to get them to grab onto the zip tie and kill them when you get home. Or if you decide to catch and release so you can get him another day.

    That's what I was wondering. I'm not a hunter, although I have a licence (requirement in my country) and a riffle. Anything I've shot in the past I've left for those more hungry.

    About 35 years ago, A friend and his Grandfather went bear hunting. My friend had a Nissan pickup. They got a bear treed near the access road, and Grandpa decides to back the truck under the tree and then they'll drop the bear into the truck with a rifle. Well, the bear lunged a bit upon being shot, and landed on the cab. The drop was on the order of 12 - 15' and crunched the cab pretty good. Totalled the truck.

    Well, in the 70s we'd get up to $40 a pelt when the fur was good.

    I never worried about fleas much because of off-splashing of the Dursban we'd use on the cows.

    Ok guys I am starting to get some kind of picture and the one that sticks to mind is the coyote bikini. Case texted me 4 coyotes and one fox bungeed to his plane. It was informative but I thought he was bragging. Steve that pistol shot is beyond the pale. I have givin it a thought but I fly low just not that low. Heard story of a local workin the yotes with an ultra light. Bet that works well but hell I am freezing doing this can't imagine. If you want to make money at this have blankets made with the pelts. Price tag in Jackson Hole 12 grand for one with a dozen pelts. I make throw blankets for the back of the couch with 8-10 pelts which sell for 2 grand. Got a waiting list. People like fur but are afraid to wear them in public.

    I knew I could get you guys going. Son got married last summer and the head of PEDA was at the wedding on the brides side. Don't think she sensed she was standing next to a natural born killer. Wife kept giving me the look. Love to go to Yellowstone and look at wolves. Wolf lovers, you can tell them as they stand next to the road with radio collar locators and huge spotting scopes. Always stop and look through their scopes and once again I don't think they sense who they are talking to. Wife giving me the look again. I know I am socially unacceptable but I know how to behave, parents beat it into me. Neighbors daughter was a coyote biologist for awhile in Yellowstone. She knew my game. Probably liked seeing all the coyote body parts sticking out of my garbage can as did all the people who walk my neighborhood. Biologist told me that when coyotes get hunted their litter size increases which I comment " So your saying I am good for the coyote population". Now she was giving me the look.
