Dave, shot one last night just before dark and the story it told me was that I am blind. Waited till sundown to call a coulee that has always had coyotes in it. The sun was down, I was facing southwest in a side coulee about 300 yards east of the main coulee. My idea being that I wanted to bring them from either up or down the main coulee and funnel them them up the side coulee to where I was. Started off with a prairie dog chirp. After 7 minutes went to an alley cat yowl. Now I was about 3/4 of a mile up the main coulee. After a few sequences of alley cat coyotes started howling at the top of the coulee I figured another 3/4 of a mile. I was at the 15 minute mark and thought I would howl back. Then I thought, why do that. They already know where I am and I know where they are. I thought to just sit tight and see if anything howled back to them that might be close to me. So I just sat there for a minimal of at least 5 more minutes in silence. It was starting to get borderline as far as shootable light goes. There was a small erosion cut bank creek in the bottom of the side coulee I was on. I caught movement of something that jumped down that cut bank. I thought the movement could only be a bugs bunny down there or I had a coyote coming. I sat up on my sticks and in a couple of seconds his head popped over the cut bank looking directly at me. The caller was halfway between us in a direct line. I would not have seen him if I hadn't seen the original flash of movement. I popped him in the chest. Big Male. That was at least the 20 minute mark. Why did a big male take so long to come in? Why did he sneak in? Then I thought maybe he came from a long ways. Maybe he was one of the ones howling way up the coulee. But I had been watching that way. And to get to the cut bank he jumped over he had to cross about a 100 yards of grass and sagebrush about 150 yards out in front of me. And if he was with the group that was howling why didn't any other coyotes come with him? I had a friend I hunted with 50 miles north of me for a couple of days and everything we called in was a double. He called in another double yesterday. I can't remember the last time I called in a double. I am starting to wonder and worry about how much I am missing and not seeing.
