I don’t know how old he was but there was some years on him for sure, I think he was on his down side of
The old dude was loaded up with scars and all his teeth where right down to his gums. He was smart let me walk right by him at like 10 yard and I didn’t see him till I was on my way back and he still didn’t move.
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.
