View Full Version : Coyote Success!

Finally... after trying all last winter with no luck, I opened 2007 with a dead dog on my first stand!:uh: Our recent scouting came up pretty much empty, so I decided to take a pass on the duck opener and headed out to make a stand or two with the FoxPro (too darned hot for ducks anyway!). I was at my spot in the dark and when I was getting my stuff ready at the truck, I heard a calf bawling and figured mother nature had started the coyote calls for me! I set up on the edge of a freshly chopped corn field and put the FoxPro about 50 yards in front of me (field is only about 100 yards wide where the corn is). I was ready to go when the light was just breaking day. I started off by playing an interrogation howl. I waited about 5 minutes, then switched to cottontail distress. It was only about 2 minutes and this male 'yote got to the middle of the field so fast I didn't see him until he was about 5 yards from the caller. I muted it and got my rifle up, when he pounced right onto the FoxPro! He realized there was no rabbit and started moving away. I had to lipsqueek to get him to hold still, then in my excitement I put the shot a few inches further back than I had intended. No trouble though, as the 35gr. Berger from my .204 had plenty of extra punch. He spun a few times and took off into the woods before I could decide to shoot again. It all happened so fast I just kinda sat their in disbelief at first, playing the shot over in my head. It's probably a good thing it happened fast, as I had no time to come totally unglued!:rf: I went in 5 minutes later and he was piled up just 20 yards into the woods. Tiny entrance and a dime sized exit. I was please with the bullet performance, for sure.

I still can't believe it. 10 minutes into 2007 and one down. Maybe I actually learned something last year!:CF: Nah... I think I'll give the FoxPro credit for this one.:rf:

Nice work on the coyote. Pretty exciting stuff when they come out of the woods looking for a kill. With one under your belt I think it is time to go after 'em with the front stuffer. I might even try a muzzle loader this year. That would be cool.

Looks like you can teach an old dog new tricks/ :up: Good job Barron. Only one problem, now you started something you may not be able to control as coyote hunting is a disease just like Goose hunting. You may never be cured.

Sweet Baron, Congrats on the nice looking howler! Not a bad way to start the year off!
However, it won't be long before you'll have that foxpro in the baby's crib playing Disney toons instead of hunting ones!:rf: :rf: So enjoy it now -LOL

Nice job. That probably gave us all about 20 more ducks to shoot. Keep up the good work.

You might be right Bones-ey!!! LOL!!!!!:rof: :rof:

Here's another pic of Mr. Howler. I haven't shot enough to know, but I think he was a good sized one. I should have weighed him. Had a pretty decent coat I think, for early fall. You can kinda see a dark smudge where I hit him. 3" further forward and he'd have been DRT. Maybe next time!
