That gets the adrenalin going LOL, been there before done that.
A tree stand is good, or pop up blind, right? I got a good partner, my 17 yr Old Grandson Dillon. We watch each others back. Besides all that, you saw the picture of my new knife... didn't you? A get the cat off your back, knife.
Thanks for the info, Buck. I'll look for a call like that. I was hunting last week a couple times. My partner and I called in some yotes, but our set-up spots are getting smaller with all the foliage. I used my pop-up blind that time. More than one yote started yipping within 50 yards of us; it sounded like something else was fighting with them too. LOL we were pumped up for a shot, with both of us carrying shotguns. I stopped calling and wondered if I should stop calling altogether at that time. I started to use a squeaker call and a yote popped up from behind me about 20 yards away, just long enough to see him and they were gone.
My Grandson said, "Grandpa this is what I love about hunting. You never know whats coming in, or when." LOL
