Default Coyote hunt turns into a Memorial Day I値l never forget!

I woke up at 5:46am, just restless and annoying my wife with my tossing as turning. So she turns and glares at me and says 堵o hunting or something, just get up! So I thought well it痴 a cool wet morning I値l try some coyote stands above my hometown here in Oregon!

First stand I set up and it felt good. I was feeling like something was gonna come in but after 25 mins headed back to the truck !

The second stand my waterproof boots were soaked, got down in one of my old favorite draws to call and set up! Wind was excellent , and some light fog rolled in, I played some rabbit distress for ten mins , and then did some howls . At the 20 min mark I知 thinking I should just go home and started to look for some kind of critter to shoot. Scanning and scanning for a ground squirrel or rabbit. I spot these 2 whitetail about 500 yards away walking away, so I swing my gun over to look at them through the scope. And my heart starts pounding when I spot these to big cats marching across this canyon!
I instantly go back to the rabbit and watch them, stop.. and look.. and then keep walking away. I go to my foxpro controller and go through the sounds I致e never used before. Trying all kinds of weird mountain lion sounds. Finally hit one that makes them turn and start running for me. I waited 8 mins and spot a head poking out of some brush at 100 yards. All I see is her head and I put the crosshairs between the eyes , squeeze the trigger and I don稚 see any movement after the shot ! 20 seconds later I see the other one take off running ! I get the sound on the fox pro going and 5 mins later the other comes back in broadside and smells his partner and I put it right behind his shoulder and he ran 30
Rans and dropped dead ! Called my wife and she got my dad and younger sister up and we all went and retrieved my cats and got some good pics ! Long day of pristine skinning and we even cooked up some back strap. Taste like pork !

Fantastic seems like too weak a word to compliment you on this accomplishment. I feel sure you will never come close to forgetting that hunt. Thanks for posting.
