Cool. Actually I am headed to Vermont tomorrow morning for 11 days, and then I will be back there for the opening weekend. I am probably going to stay from Friday till Tuesday, just get in 3 1/2 days of hunting.
I have not gotten out to look around yet but with as wet of a spring as we have had there should be a really good acorn crop on the oak brush and it really does seem to make a difference in the deer patterns where I hunt. I also neen to get out and look at the pinon trees as it usually takes a pretty wet year to get a good crop of pine nuts to go after. It's a lot of work but they sure are good after you roast them up in the oven.
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.
