Wow... I would have thought that someone would have atleast known someone that had gotten a fall bird. It sounds like you two might be our best bets so good luck come November 13th! I hope you both get a bird. Are those tags either sex or do you have to be more choosy? I want to see some pictures in a week or two.
I thought about buying a tag, but didn't want to spend the 22 dollars it cost to get one. I had two flocks of turkeys under my stand, but with no tag, it was no go. It did make me realize how hard it would be to get one with a bow and no blind. I'd have to pay attention and catch them way off coming in and draw my bow waiting for them to get close and then shoot. No way I could draw my bow when they are under the stand and get a shot off. i tried to get my blackberry to video them and it was impossible. One saw me and led the others off and I moved just slightly. It doesn't look like they were looking up but they see everywhere.
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.
