I just worked two different 5 night hitches from 6 pm to 6 am and liked what I saw. On 9 out of 10 of the nights I saw one or more coyote pups. For the middle of August they seemed small.
We finally got some rain this year after having 4 years of drought. During these nights I saw quite a few rabbits, rats and mice along with the coyotes that I saw. Last year I only saw one coyote pup all season so I am pretty excited about the 2010-2011 coyote calling season.
