Heading out today for my first coyote hunt since last spring. Got a late start and didn't leave till noon and got to my area about 1:00. First stand I let the fox pro blast with some yote pup howls and then broke into rabbit distress. Heard a mad response about right when I switched to the distress and switched into pup distress. Started scanning and finally saw movement about 600 yards out coming off a ridge and moving across the prairie steadily stopping every once in awhile stopping and then moving in. It was almost a repeat of my last coyote from this stand last new years. He dropped down a depression and finally popped up about 200 yards out and stopped staring at the mojo critter I use. I had my 243 on this stand instead of my 22-250 put the cross hairs on his chest and dropped the hammer and he dropped DRT. A nice male but I had neglected to put my camera in my pack so no pic.
Next stand no action but on the third had a young female come from behind and passed me at about five ft ran towards the call and mojo then behind a tree and then back pass me the direction it came I tried a shot with my Mossberg 500 but it was akward as it was on my far right and I was sitting and missed. I got up ran the direction of the yote and caught another shot at her at about forty yards and caught her with a load of #4 buckshot. three more dry stands and headed home to my family and dinner.
I do loves the coyote hunting, hell I love hunting period!
