    WOW! - Coyote John - Predator Hunting


    Hadn’t realized how long it’s been since I posted something here.  For those that sent me e-mails and pointed out my lack of blogging I promise to try and do better in the future.  For those that make this space available to me at no cost I sincerely apologize.  This past season (I stop calling and killing coyotes in March and bobcat and fox season closes the end of March.) was an exceptionally good one for me with plenty of fur on the ground.  However, the best part of the season was that I made two new calling partners - Sarge and AZBuckeye.  Sarge and I had been out many times and we always seemed to be able to call them in - just never able to put them on the ground.  Either he or I would not see them soon enough or they never presented themselves for a decent shot.  That finally ended on our next to the last calling session.  I set the Scorpian (gofoxpro.com) out about 30 yards in  front of us and started with the jackrabbit in distress.  About 5 minutes into the call I heard a shot and then saw a coyote do a nose dive into the dirt.  Although he was dead he obviously didn’t know it as he got up and ran about another 40 or so yards.  The other highlight of the season was with AZBuckeye.  He and I didn’t get out near as much as Sarge and I did - but - I had the privilege of calling in his first ever coyote.  As a matter of fact three came into that stand.  And yes he did shoot and yes he did kill it, not only his first Arizona coyote but in fact his first ever coyote.  I also learned that when we go out again I had better be on the ball, as his young eyes and quick reflex are a lot better then these old eyes.

      Went out last night with my Coachgun. Got a jackrabbit at about 40 yards or so. If I can, I may go call this evening with that shotgun and see if I can score on a dog or two. Aguila 12 Gauge Shorts did the trick, the recoil is less than a 20 gauge and the spread stays pretty tight out to about 50 yards…… even with the short barrels.
