Default defense against coyotes?

This is a little different question. I don't know if you gentlemen have heard of increasing coyote attacks on small pets in the L.A. area? Supposedly there have recently been small 50 pets taken by coyotes in the west L.A. area I'm in.
My question is about when walking in areas in the hills where there are houses. I have a property out in the S.M. mountains, there are houses dispersed around there. About every time I go out there I see coyotes, they are fairly close and don't seem to have much fear, evidently no one has been shooting at them.
So if I'm walking around out there, or walking my dog, what's my best defense?
I don't have a concealed carry permit, so I can't hide a pistol. With the houses around I obviously can't be carrying any of my AR's.
I got to thinking about air guns. I wasn't aware until I started looking into it that a Benjamin Bulldog 357 air rifle can kill a coyote. Nice, but then, if I can't carry an AR, I probably can't carry an air rifle around either.
That got me thinking about air pistols. There is an Evanix Rex-P pistol that is fairly small and evidently has enough power to kill a coyote, but it seems to be single shot if I'm not mistaken.
I'm also interested in the Tippman TIPX paintball pistol, which can shoot pepper spray balls. Check out Salt Home Defense Gun (same as the Tippman TIPX), they have them on Amazon, but they don't ship to Kalifornia.
It seems like a coyote hit with a pepper ball would probably run off, but then what would be the penalty from a LEO if I use the thing while walking my dog, and a neighbor calls the sheriff?
Obviously there's a variety of small canister pepper sprays, but those seem pretty ineffective against anything that's not right up close to you.
Of course I already have many knives, I always have one on me, plus I have a few extendable batons, and I have a small flashlight style stun gun, but again, a coyote has to be right up next to you before any of those would be any good.
Any thoughts are appreciated. Btw, I'm not on this forum all the time so it might take me a while to reply to any comments or insults.

You're over thinking it. Just be aggressive and a 'yote will leave you alone. I live on hundreds of acres in the SMM, worked as a surveyor in the area for many years and have never had a single problem with 'yotes at any distance.

You need to understand that discharging an air gun or paintball gun is the same as discharging a firearm and that's illegal in the SMMs in LA County but not in Ventura County. So, it depends on where your property is.

If you are truly scared of them, bear spray or pepper spray and a big stick is probably your best solution. The fact you are admitting to having extendable batons in CA means you either are exempt from the law or you've just admitted to a crime. Since you are not a LE, I'm guessing you are not exempt and just like making public admissions of guilt on the internet.

I'd carry bear spray.

Try the loud whistle or air horn just to see what reaction you get.

Just a few years ago, we had a pair of young males hanging around, my wife and I were on horseback and we had our 90lb RR with us. The yotes were watching us and I did not want them attacking our dog when we turned away from them, had the wife and dog stay put and went after the yotes, they got up but were not in a hurry, I rushed them twice with a big horse, to get them to move along. When we finally got some rain they went back up into the hills. I carry bear spray when on foot, the drought and fires have pushed them out of the mountains again.

Yotes do not play fair if three get your dog in a triangle attack, sorry, they win. Bear Spray and go for their face.

I really wouldn't put that much thought into this. If you want to carry some bear spray that's as excited as I'd get.
I have them on my property all the time. I've seen a few and they want nothing to do with humans.

Coyote activity around our house in Anaheim Hills has been way up.. used to never see them in the day and now we do.

So far they have left our dogs alone (Whippets, so 30-40 pounds), but if I could I would smoke a few to get the numbers down.

In the Santa Monica Mountains early often, I see coyotes all the time (and in my street), two were especially interested one morning in the hills, a few rocks and a charge ran them off.
But, I kept checking my six as I finished my hike.

We are having the same problem in San Diego. I’m adjacent to two wildlife corridors, so the coyotes roam freely with in neighborhood streets. There’s scat everywhere. I have two 25 lbs dogs that I walk in the evening. I carry a high lumen weapon light, an airhorn, and bear spray. I’ve been stalked many times but the light and airhorn seems to ward them off. So far I’ve not had to use the bear spray.

While driving, I also made it a point to try and run them over while flashing high beams and blowing the horn. Of course they are too fast.

I passed a 50 lb male in the MCX 2010 parking lot yesterday. If the Marines aren't allowed to thin the herd who is?

I live in the city but have seen & encountered many coyotes.

The most interesting one was a couple of years ago. I was letting my Lab out in my back yard around 1:00pm. I walked toward the back of the yard & I saw a coyote casually laying on the grass - just like a dog. I approached him, figuring he would run off before my Lab saw him. When I got about 5 feet from him, he just looked at me calmly. But when I clapped & yelled at him, he sprang up & jumped over the fence into my neighbor's yard.

Pick up your dog and get him to **** near the house.

Not much game for them to eat this time of year so fluffy looks tasty......and your just a dumb human in their mind.

Hit and run ......and your missing a dog

Lots of coyotes around here.

I rarely have to do anything. Seems a couple of 100lbs German Shepherds frothing at the mouth trying to get the coyote makes them go away.

If I were hiking it would be with a walking stick. I have chased them off before by yelling and waving while charging them.

Have you checked to see if the area of your property is zoned for hunting? some of areas of L.A. County are zoned for shotgun hunting.

Missed the quail and hit the coyote. Oops.

Ever shot anything with a wrist rocket sling shot? Easy to carry, and a 5/16” ball bearing hits pretty hard. I certainly wouldn’t want to take one, and I’m a lot bigger than a coyote. Gives you some stand-off range compared to any kind of spray, and they’re pretty fun to shoot.

In los angeles county the law for discharging a firearm has an exception for defense of person or property from a wild predator animal, (coyote).

§ 13.66.040. Discharging firearms—Restrictions generally
Latest version.
A person shall not shoot, fire or discharge, and a person, firm or corporation shall not cause or permit to be shot, fired or discharged, any rifle, shotgun, pistol, revolver or firearm in the general direction of any house, camp or place of human habitation, or in the general direction of any public highway, road, street, way, park or premises, unless the place from which such rifle, shotgun, pistol, revolver or firearm is shot, fired or discharged is at least one-half mile distant from such house, camp or place of human habitation, or is at least one-half mile distant from that portion of such public highway, road, street, way, park or premises toward which such rifle, shotgun, pistol, revolver or firearm is shot, fired or discharged. The exception in Section 13.66.010 to destroying or killing any predatory or dangerous animal does not apply to this section.

(Ord. 7381 § 1 (part), 1958: Ord. 1769 Art. 3 § 304, 1929.)

§ 13.66.010. Use of weapons permitted when
Latest version.
This chapter, except as otherwise provided in this Part 1, does not prohibit the discharge of any rifle, shotgun, pistol, revolver or firearm of any kind, or the shooting of any arrow or other missile, when necessary so to do to protect life or property, or to destroy or kill any predatory or dangerous animal.


(Ord. 7730 § 1, 1960: Ord. 7381 § 1 (part), 1958: Ord. 1769 Art. 3 § 302, 1929.)

Bear spray.

For a more lethal ranged alternative...
PocketShot = sling shot that fits in pocket. It can shoot 5/16 steel ball bearings at 300 FPS and, with an adator, can shoot arrows or crossbow bolts at 130 FPS.

Unless you are an exempt person (LEO or BSIS licensed security in uniform while working); it is illegal (misdemeanor) to import, make, transfer, or possess pepperballs in CA. [PC 22900]

ACME used to make some good stuff for getting rid of coyotes. The anvil was favored IIRC.
Clearly the OP doesn't live in shoot/shovel/shut up country. Too bad.

Totally weird, I would have sworn you were asking us how you could defend yourself from Yotes.

Actually my dog used to go out and run with the Yotes at night, until they came into the yard and ate her food. Now she picks them up, shakes them and drops them - dead. No mess, no blood, easy to bury.

Carry a bucket of paint and a brush. If a coyote chases you, paint a tunnel on a nearby wall, run through the tunnel with your dog, then wait for the coyote to splat against the wall.

So far I’ve not had to use the bear spray.

While driving, I also made it a point to try and run them over while flashing high beams and blowing the horn. Of course they are too fast.

I'm in San Diego as well. Seems like we loose a small dog or cat on average every two to four weeks. I've had one jump the back fence to get to my little 20 pound dog - was able to scare it away. Found out they were sleeping in my back yard!

It does not work

Bear spray works as does a good walking stick

Ah yes. Interesting choice.

Portable hole/man hole cover combo sounds about right tho.


Now back to our regular programming.........

Golf club.

3-iron is ideal.

Totally legit to carry around and VERY effective on 2 and 4-legged predators.

And it is cruel. Blinding a coyote is inhumane. Bear spray is better, and so is a nice stick.

The subsonics I use don't make a bang. Pssstt. Check out the different types available. The loads with a 60 gr lead bullet work great for me.

In OP's situation ^^^^ this is the answer along with pepper spray and a good knife. You can find golf clubs cheap at thrift stores.

If you run across an exceptionally hungry yote that decides your dog (or you) looks like a great meal, a full send with a 4 iron will change it's plans in a hurry.

Not to mention they generally will stay away from 2 legged creatures.

Either my dog or I are able to defend ourselves, I'm just asking for some thoughts, but by all means flame away.
Why don't you try using a 'Kung-Fu Coyote Chop' on them?
