5,000 Coyotes Experience Helps You Learn At Predator University
We had time for only one stand there on this trip and merely “educated” one coyote that Tony called out of the brush at 347 yards --- and I missed.

Mobile shooting platform.

Tony also took me out for a night calling adventure, my first ever. We knew I had very limited time to do this as I was leaving at 3 AM for my next destination, 8 hours away and I needed to get some sleep first. But I really enjoyed the experience and look forward to a longer session next year. Tony has rigged a swiveling shooting chair with a rifle rest attached to the wooden platform on top of his truck. He would stand next to the seated shooter and call while we both turned to watch the bright beam of his spot light. I had a shot at a spot just below one coyote’s eyes, not quite knowing where to aim…was it facing us or turned right…or turned left? And then I had to leave for the night.

Tony's carry strap.

I shot 4 coyotes in the two days and missed…well, never mind how many I missed. It was not a proud moment for my shooting skills.

Tony also makes and sells predator hunting gear. He has a line of open reed mouth calls that brought the coyotes running. He also sells a unique quiet call lanyard and a coyote carry strap. Tony runs instructional and guided hunts, with daytime and nighttime hunting for coyotes and bobcat. We saw a lot of cat sign up on the ridge where they bed and den in small caves along the ridge. Tony also has hog hunts and jack rabbit and prairie dog shooting to fill in the time on a trip. And he’s a really nice guy to spend time with!
