Default Nice to be wanted :)

Got a call from a landowner that got my number from one of the farmers I do some coyote hunting on. She explained her situation...
A coyote that keeps hanging around her estate home coming up close to the house. Having small children and dogs she was understandably worried.

With the neighbourhood having a few larger homes (estate style) in the area, I decided to bring along my shotgun instead of a rifle....
Last week after work I went there twice and both times spotted the coyote in the bush but sneaking up on him was too tough. With it being so dry at the time, every step I made, the leaves and twigs would just snap under my boots making it impossible for me to get close enough for a shot....I told the owner to keep an eye out and when conditions improved (got some rain) I would be back...

Fast forward to this morning........She texted me letting me know that she seen the coyote again... With a good wind and the moist ground I made my way to the back of the property shortly after 4pm..... My plan was to walk (still hunt) the area into the wind in hopes of spotting him before he spotting me.... I did bring my calls along and was planning on using them later on in the hunt but that wasn't necessary.

I took my time still hunting the area with shotgun in hand. I knew my pace was good because the squirrels were out and about all around me.....Slow and steady I traveled a few hundred yards before I spotted this ugly looking thing coming through the forest floor toward me... As it neared the 30 yd mark it started to change directions at which point I let out a soft wolf sound stopping him in his tracks...
Needless to say she is very happy....
