Default Shotgunned 5 coyotes, live pictures!

On our first coyote calling stand this morning at about 10:00 am we had a large female coyote show up to Pup Distress 3 sound on my X-Wave about 15 minutes into the stand.

She stopped about 100 yards out so I switched sounds to Vole Squeaks on volume 25. She started trotting closer and my hunting buddy for the day on his first calling stand ever dropped her with a 3" 1-1/2 oz load of TSS #3 shot.

Two stands later we were sitting about 30 yards apart with our shotguns and I had my X-Wave sitting between us about 15 yards out in front of us.

I started out with Adult Rat sound and at about 5 minutes into the stand a coyote ran up to the left of my Foxpro and crossing right in front of my buddy.

This is coyote #1 on this stand.

Still coyote #1 on this stand.

The above picture is #1 coyote on this stand a split second after my buddy hit him with some TSS #3 shot.

After the first coyote got shot a coyote about 400 yards away challenged us so I hit my #4 pre-set button and it is Male Coyote Challenge 4 sound on full volume. I let the Male Coyote Challenge 4 sound go for about 20 seconds and then switched to Pup Distress 3 sound on full volume, it is my #2 pre-set sound.

Within 30 seconds I saw a big male coyote heading our way from the direction that I heard the challenge from.

In the above picture is coyote #2 running by looking for a coyote to fight with.

Just after this picture was taken my buddy's TSS #3 shot dropped this coyote.

Pup Distress 3 was still playing on full volume when the below coyote which is coyote #3 for this stand showed up.

This #3 coyote was moving from left to right and stopped at close to 60 yards away. I shot this coyote with a 3" 1-5/8 oz load of TSS #2 shot.

#4 coyote for this stand was also heading from my left to my right and it stopped about 70 yards away. I held just over the neck and chest area of this coyote that was standing broadside. The 1-5/8 oz load of TSS #2 shot dropped the coyote straight down dead.

Here is my noob coyote calling buddy with the 4 coyotes that we shotgunned on one stand.

All it takes is one great stand to make my day.

Great pictures, good story, Bob. Good way to break your new hunting partner in. Must have been wild and western during that action.

Awesome shoot. Was wondering what you set for your #1 and #3 pre-set buttons . I like what you set for your 2 and 4 pre-sets. Keep up the good work.

My four pre-set sounds.
#1 pre-set is "Coyote Pup Screams" at volume 40 for stopping coyotes.
#2 pre-set is "Pup Distress 3" on volume 40 for calling coyotes.
#3 pre-set is "Vole Squeaks" at volume 25 for coaxing coyotes.
#4 pre-set is "Male Challenge 4" at volume 40 for challenging coyotes that have just challenged me.
