I agree. It would suck to try to sneek in on a bull with a bow just have someone shoot close by and spook the whole herd. I haven't looked at the ML regulations. Are ML hunters aloud to hunt all the same units as archers?
Yes archery and ML hunters hunt the same units during the season. I agree it would be nice if they changed the dates like Still Hunter said but until they do archery hunters need to deal with ML hunters during the 9 day ML season.
I do like ML hunting. Haven't done it for years. My question is do you prefer traditional style gun or the new styles with scopes and all the new high tech. You can definitely shoot much further with more accuracy with the new styles compared to 20 years ago. Personally to me it takes more of the challenge away. That being said I prefer a compound over a recurve.
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.
