    I think it says something about your success rate that NOT getting a yote is newsworthy...keep it up, you'll keep getting more

    Like the mountains and view, I'm jealous, I always say "A bad day hunting is better than a good day at work"

    Went out again this evening, I took my 5 year old daughter with me. I had a Coyote charge in bouncing like a deer threw the sage brush, it stopped about 10 yards from me. but all i could see were its ears. it ended up going down wind of me and it was outa there. She got to see it all, it was very cool, afterward I asked her did you see it? She said "DAD WHY DIDNT YOU SHOOOOT IT!!!" it was great!

    Priceless!!!

    My daughter (17yo) and I were hunting deer last winter and a coyote passed by disappearing into the brush. She googled and downloaded a dying rabbit call to her iPhone and called it back out. He won't make that mistake again!

    Priceless follow up.........and to the first post and in general I believe even an uneventful day hunting is still a PRETTY good day.

    Living where I do in western Colorado, I think I'm a lucky man. I think you are too. Great pic of that red dog, nice background too.

    Maybe it's age or maybe it's just overal maturity but I can go hunting and not take an animal. I'm pretty content taking pictures and just seeing wildlife and being at one with nature.

    I like to solitude and no one atound to pester me, like my wife......:)

    Could be why I farm too.

    I worked at ranching and as an outfitter for almost 30 years before back injuries forced me to find another way to make a living. I really miss the solitude of the ranch.
    I'm with you on the enjoyment of just being out hunting. I was out hunting marmots last weekend when I came upon this coyote. I picked up my rifle to shoot, and he just stood there looking at me, from maybe 40 yards? I wished hem well and watched him go. That felt better than shooting him would have.
    Now you couldn't have told me that 30 years ago.
