I initially thought after this winters blizzards the antelope herds would have been hit hard. Unfortunate after finally building back up over the years. Well, in the last few months traveling back and forth between Aguilar and Colorado Springs many times I now feel the antelope herds were able to weather the blizzards better then the Division thinks they have. I continue to see large herds and many bucks often and in places I had never seen them before. To me in the area I mentioned they seem to be fine and it's unfortunate the license quotas are going to be limited lower then last year.
Antelope numbers are near normal in this corner of SE Colorado but I'm seeing *zero* deer. None. I don't think they all perished but I do believe they migrated south to the Arkansas. Maybe the winter will thin out the outfitters too. Big $$ for empty leases --- now that's a pleasant thought.
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.
