Re: You quickest yote?

The quickest I've ever had one respond was about two seconds but it was going away from the call! We were calling a big bowl. It was windy and I put the caller out. I thought we could see pretty much anything there so I opened with a howl and the coyotes jumped up 60 yards from the caller and headed out of Dodge! I was able to get it muted and switched to distress. The male turned around and come right back to the caller and my son shot him. Learned a valuable lesson there as well.

    I had my scope turned up to full power and didn't get him in it until after my brother whiffed the first shot. I let a couple rounds go after him as he sped away but did not connect. Dang thing wised up and wouldn't come in to calls anymore so I never did get on that dog again.

    Moral of this story- keep your scope turned down or a shotgun handy!
    I was never a fan of packing a scattergun with my calling rifle, until I had one come in slightly behind me and noticed it too late, he'd have gone home with me if I'd had a shot gun handy. Bought a used 870 at the pawn shop on the way home from that trip.

    Keep em coming guys, we should throw in "your biggest F#*k-up" on a coyote stand too. I like knowing I'm not the only dumb-ass out there!
