Coyotes must have been extra hungry yesterday! Came running from a long ways off. This big male came into my calls from about a mile. Started the set with a couple howls. He came walking out of the draw to check it out. Followed it up with some distress and he made a B-line for us. I took him down with a neck shot arond 125yards.
Next set got interesting...
Used the same call tactics and just noticed this small (dot) moving from over a mile away. Got the binos up to double check and told my father inlaw (here we go again)
. This female came in trying to get downwind the entire time. Not to mention this whole time there were probably 150 cows spread out in front of us. So there we were with the coyote maybe 20 yards from being downwind and 30 or so cows between us. Did a lite series of calls and she stared right for us. I asked my partner in crime if he was ready and he wispered yes. I barked and she stopped. Im not joking when I say there was maybe a five ft window between to cows when he made the head shot. 135 yards. Whoooooooo.
Seems like a lot of room until you have both cows and the coyote in your crosshairs. Made for a great set!
