If it's cold, like we've had here the last few days and overcast or sunny they can be out and active all day. When it's cold like thirty degrees or under they really have to eat to keep their metabolism hot. Now if it's a blizzard or really ugly they'll hole up, but again, if really cold but otherwise mild their out all day. Yesterday, Wed. I saw about seven coyotes on the flats while hunting antelope.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
