Neat animals aren't they. I'm lucky enough to get to see them fairly often here, though usually not in such large groups at a time. Maybe 10-20 at a time mostly. I saw pretty big groups in New Mexico when I was there.
I was there years ago for Deer hunting, and saw them everyday as I recall. Some groups were really big... too bad we didn't have Antelope tags, saw a heck of a lot more of them than deer, LOL. That trip was sort of a bummer otherwise...
They are a blast to hunt. I live in CO and ever since I started hunting them in WY I have never hunted them in CO. There are so many there it is nothing to see a couple thousand in a weekend...might be some of the same ones over and over but still real cool to see all the animals. I actually have a doe tag for CO this year during a last season in the eastern plains.
I'm jealous, ha ha. One of my fondest, if not favorite, memories of a hunt was with my young son working a decoy for me out Antelope hunting with a bow. It was a crazy day, and a complete blast, LOL. He's an adult now, and his favorite thing to go for is Antelope; I think it is in his blood now, ha! Too bad we don't get drawn more often here though...
When calling coyotes, more often than not they will circle on a target they are
coming into and approach from the downwind side. Presumably they do this in
order to align what they smell, with what they are hearing.
This means that you should always have your downwind side camouflaged and have
an open shooting lane. If the area is heavily covered the coyote could come in
take a look and be gone, with you none the wiser.
