Default sometimes I wonder why

Why I try so hard to do everything right on each and every stand. From scouting to stealth to set up to a T. Then I hear a story how some beginners go out with their new caller, 3 guys by the way. Just flippin through sounds to see what was on the caller and call in 5. And kill three of them. And they were in an area only a mile or so down the road from a property I call and I think a few others do also. So, not coyotes that have never heard a call I am sure. Just when you think you are getting good at it and probably better than others, you start to wonder if it is better to be lucky than good.
Nothing like a dry spell to make you wonder what you are doing wrong, but I know the next few stands could all be winners.

Sounds similar to our year. A lot of new guys hunting in our area. We still do things the right way knowing that we will put more fur in the truck, but you are right sure gets a guy down and out. You said it best, my favorite stand is always the next one. Good luck.

I hate dry spells, went out a few weeks ago, called for 2 days like crazy, saw nothing but crows and antelope. On the way out of my last stand I came upon 6 dead coyotes piled on the side of a two track....drove me nuts!

i hear ya! but their time will come...lol.

its the drug of the sport. try it once..just a little bit and you get that rush and you are hooked. you are in it for the ride, the ups and downs and hard to quit, no other drug like it!

(just my theory/opinion. its what happen to me. i was deer hunting 5yrs ago. i spotted a coyote about 150yrds out. so as seen on tv, i puckered my lips and squeaked "thinking ya right", the yote stopped, turned and came a trotting in...then another from the brush he came out of! 2 yotes! my heart started pumping, 1000 thoughts through my mind, what is wrong with me i thought...settled in best i could and boom 50yrd shot yote down, the other lived to tell about it.)

my name is Tyson and i have been hooked for 5yrs and counting.
"In the early 70's a predator was pushed south for the crimes it committed. These predators known as coyotes have eluded many hunters. There is a group of men who escape into the open plains and thick timber to hunt these coyotes. Today, these men survive as hunters of coyote hides. if you have a coyote problem, if no one else can help and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the C-team."

The one Hunters that go out and get "Lucky" think its going to be that easy each time they Hunt....we know better and Love the Sport,that makes Us stay at Predator Hunting just because we love the Outdoors!

Some times Coyotes have boundries and no matter what we do they may not come our way....other times everything comes together because we take the time to Hunt "Smarter" and out think those wise Predators and we score a nice old wise Coyote!

I love reading the Stories of succesful Predator Hunters here and hope they learn from their mistakes and Ours too!
