Re: Coyote in Quiznos.
Cruizin, I think you might have something figured out.
I tried refers today and they didn't work. Maybe I should rephrase that, I tried refrigerators today, and they didn't work.
A 14 year old I know has been chasing coyotes for the last two years and we tried to find some this morning in 15 below wind chill. The wind was so bad there was very little chance of calling anything in but that didn't matter to him and I respect that ambition. We made three sets before we were so cold we couldn't make any more but the effort was certainly worth it.
We sneaked up on a big tom in full strut and watched him for 10 minutes doing his thing. We "eased" up to 2 other flocks of turkeys that were feeding on the edge of corn fields. We had the local crows going ballistic, and we saw sand hills, eagles and deer.
Anyhow, the last set we made was near an old dump site and the best place for me to call from was an old refrigerator that was laying there. Lucky for me they had removed the door so I didn't get trapped inside. I was thinking as I was calling this was the perfect set up for a chicago coyote but it was not to be.
Yup, the cooler is the way to go, the refer is too much...
BTW, I gotta tell you this young gentleman is one of the best guys I have ever hunted with. He is safe with a gun, respectful of his equipment, enjoys the hunt, and said something that impressed me. "A bad day hunting is still better than sitting at home playing video games."
I will hunt with him again.
