I was at my Kansas hunting property a couple of weeks ago mending fences and burning CRP when I decided to go down in one of the hardwood draws to look for morel mushrooms. I always carry some kind of firearm because we kill every coyote we see. I was easing through the draw when I heard my land partner at the other end of the draw on the UTV. I decided he may send something my way up the dry creek bed so I cozied up to an elm tree and waited...a whole 30 seconds and there is a big coyote headed right at me using the creek bed. It gets to about 15 yards coming right at me and stopped...winded me but never saw me. Dropped her with the Rem 597 HB 22 mag using Hornady Critical Defense Ammo, 45g FTX. I love shootin' coyotes.
