Glad to see a few of you starting to get the fever too. I love to hunt muleys, especially old bucks. Over that last few years, I find myself passing a lot of muleys and coming home deerless. I really enjoy just being out there and hunting them. Don't get me wrong, if I see a big one and get a good shot, I'll take it but if I don't see a old buck, that's OK too, I'll just keep enjoying God's creation while hiking over hill and dale.
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.
