Default Learning Curve Coyote

Gang,

I had a crazy stand last nite. I sat in my car and watched “Pluto TV” on my phone for over an hour as I waited for the rain to stop. When it did, I ventured out to try my new Pulsar Axion. The first seat was empty, so on to location number two.

This farm has two fields to hunt. As I approached the first, I could see three coyotes moving around the field.I had to finish my approach and they were gone. Rabbit distress brought one back but it did not commit. I howled a few minutes later and it came back but walked over to the second field. I packed up and walked over to that field.

Numerous deer were in this new field. I began with rabbit and then howled. The coyote appeared again and made his way to the far end of the field. Now, there were 4 coyotes together! I played pup distress and they all came running toward me. Here is where it got interesting... due to the landscape , I could not take a shot! For a half hour, the coyotes were running around the field.I was switching between scanning with the Pulsar and finding them in my ATN scope. Finally, a shot opportunity arose and I took the shot with my Howa 1500 in .223.The telltale “whump”indicated a hit and seeing the downed coyote through the Pulsar was a nice bonus.

Here is what I learned on night #1...

- it’s hard to see where you are going on the approach without redlights
- Those coyotes would never have tolerated 1/2 hour of scanning the field with red LED as they ran around
- finding game after the shot is easy with the thermal... no more searching (Now,where did it go?)
