Took my two youngest boys and a nephew hunting this weekend. Matt my middle son was the shooter he is on the far left. After missing him opening day went found him again at first light on Sunday. He is on cloud 9 to say the least.
Thanks guys. The kid holding the head is my youngest son. He is pretty proud of big brother. He put a great shot on him and I'm proud of that but was more proud the evening before as we had this buck and another that was wider but a year younger at 75 yrds. They were both chasing different does and he couldn't quite get the shot he wanted. With about 15 minutes of shooting light left he pulled his gun down and whispered. " Lets seek outta here and try again tomorrow. If I put a bad shot on him he might get away." Works for me. It sure helps with his decision to own the ground and he knew he wasn't going anywhere.
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.
