Default I cheated today, nice to get lucky for once

I wanted to do some calling today but really should not be in the sun.
RMSP meds make me burn in under ten minutes.

SOOOO

On the road at 3 AM trying to beat the sun.

I got to my destination and out in the field about 40 minutes before sunup. Nice and cool but mosquitoes from hell.

I took two thermacell just for this, work mostly.

Made several sets with no takers and the sun kept getting higher.

I was thinking I need to give it up and get home but "Just one more set".

I was walking out to a good looking spot, Dang saw a coyote.

About 250 yards out doing the coyote thing and not paying attention tp me.

Should I set up and call? Hell no, set down put the sticks up and shot it. Cold dead where it stood, on the far side of a sea of mud and salt grass, sorry no pictures today. Home by 10...Big smile

Thanks for sharing the hunt even if Weasel will get after you for no pictures. Keep the Forum alive, even in the off season.

I love it when I see them before they realize I am there. Situations like that I will simply bust out a Verminator Tweety and see what kind of reaction I get from them. I never miss a chance for furthering my own education of what or how they will respond. Some of my best stands are when I never fired a shot.

Good story, Furguy. Old Weasel will just have to give you a pass this time. I can't stand the heat and insects at all any more, so I admire you for even getting out there.

Pass given! Getting out there and getting it done under the circumstances beats a picture. Good going!
