Smaug1 Posted January 4, 2005 Share Posted January 4, 2005 First of all, a grammar question: in my Topic Description, is 'effect' or 'affect' correct? I don't know why, but it bugs me not to know... I live in flat Northern Illinois. The only good places to cache seem to be forest and nature preserves. Actually, there is a nature preserve right next to my subdivision which I used to go hiking in at all hours. My wife and a few other people in the neighborhood have spotted a coyote, which by all accounts is a monster. She said his head is about 6" above her hip level, and she's 5'6" tall. Coyotes are new to me. My instinct is that they're pretty harmless to humans, kind of on the same level as a racoon or something. On the other hand, he is a monster, and these are probably lean times for him. Should I avoid the woods altogether? Not avoid & bring a good stick? Not avoid & bring a 6" bladed Buck knife? At times, I've been tempted to disobey the law and pack some heat in the form of my Glock, but I don't think Officer Friendly would believe my honorable intentions. (or care) I think he'd cart me off to jail cheerfully. What would you all do? Thanks for reading. Jeremy Quote Link to comment
