We do, of course, have coyotes in Georgia. State Parks and WMAs are off limits. In addition to the experience of having a bear wander through my camp in a state park (several miles from the nearest road), I am aware that there are coyotes in Georgia. They are only about fifty pounds, so why is this a carry issue?
