View Full Version : Cow Lot Coyote...

I was on my way home from elk hunting and decided I was going to stop by a local ranch and ask permission to hunt coyotes. I have always wanted to ask just never have spent the time to stop in there. Well today was the day. He looked at me kinda weird when I said "I call them in and shoot them" He gave me permission with a " I guess it would be alright".
So I ran home and grabbed my gear. I was leary about making too much of the scene so I set the gear up 50 yards from the barn and hunkered in some near by junk. I hit the caller with a baby pig squeal and almost instantly, I saw this dog about 1/4 mile out in the pasture and he came running in. He stopped 30 yards from the decoy and took a 22 250 to the chest. The whole hunt took about 15 minutes.
I saw the rancher on the way out and he asked, "I heard you shoot, did you get one?". I said "Yep, right down by the barn". He said Well I'll be, you come back anytime!
Gotta love when a plan comes together.

Awesome! A successful hunt is always that much sweeter on a new farm. Good job on impressing the rancher and sealing your permission!:cool:

Sometimes it only takes a few minutes! Give'em hell buddy!

GDB... great dog man! I don't know if I could stand watching a dog come in from that distance. I'd be a shaking mess...yes, I do still get excited when I hunt!

Great job. Coyotes love to hang around any livestock yard. They eat the afterbirth, dead animals, and even the cow crap. They especially like eating the new-born animal manure as it is so rich after their birth. If you find livestock in good coyote ground, you have found coyotes. Great job, most ranchers won't let you set up this close to their operation but I think you have a friend for life in that rancher.

Looks like a young female. good job!!!
Ok Gander whats a bigger rush: 50 geese feet down 10 yards and out? or a pair of fast charging yotes to the call?

No question a coyote coming to the call! Even more rush then that... is night calling them, having them try to climb in your lap and take the call from your lips. :TT:
