Ransey Outdoors, in its Paramus location on Rt. 17  for more than 60 years, is closing up shop there due to high rents that usually only chain stores can afford.
The owners are looking for a new spot not far from the Towne Square site.
The Paramus store, long a favorite for hunters and anglers seeking equipment, was a location for several episodes of "The Sopranos," with Tony getting the store after its owner couldn't pay back a loan.

Al Ivany of the state Division of Fish & Wildlife says there are from 3,000 to 6,000 coyotes statewide and sightings are not unusual.
