Another great day of hunting. I want to personally thank Thomas Fields and Jake Willcut for inviting me to hunt with them today. We walked back in 1/2 mile for our first stand of the day and managed to call this male in on the five minute mark to a distance of 40 yds. Due to a "technicality" no one was able to connect at that time. When he figured the gig was up he trotted away but stopped at 220 yds from me at the top of a knoll. I got lucky and he didn't. The ki-yi did the trick.
He had a great pelt and was rather hefty. I am planning on doing "something" with him but I am not sure what. There was no damage to the pelt at all. Both of the boys got a rush as he came running in that soonand that close. I think they're hooked! We did three more stands but with no luck. Again, I want to thank both of these excellent hunters. Everybody knows how hard it is to hunt in groups of three, but these guys were great and it paid off. Not to mention that they carried the coyote all the way back to the truck for this old man. My hat goes off to them and may we have some more hunts coming. See ya in the woods.
