Default Thousand Yard Coyote

No, I didn't shoot him at a 1,000 yds. but I did see him coming from that far with the Phenom 640. When I started the stand, the wind was NE but it was a long stand and by the time the coyote responded and got within range, the wind shifted to the SW which put my scent going toward where he was approaching. Humidity was 71% and temp at 30 degrees.

You can tell when he stops right before I shoot that he has smelled something he doesn't like, which is me. I knew his next move would be to turn around and leave, so I killed him at about 150 yds. It was a nice male looking for love in all the wrong places.

A passing but relative thought----Think how many approaching coyotes do all that stuff when you can't see them coming due to the terrain. They still react, but you don't see them. Good to keep that in mind. Kudos to you Double Up for being involved, and sharing your hunts.

Thanks to both of you, and you're absolutely right Possumal. There no telling how many are actually called and never seen.

My experience tells me that it is at least 50%, maybe more, depending a lot on the terrain, and how you make your setup. Heck, even in relative open country, I have watched three or four coyotes appear and disappear, and then appear again much closer to my sit down spot. A really big coyote can disappear like a ghost just by running in a shallow ditch caused by erosion. Trick is to choose your spot where it is next to impossible for them to get to where they can see the source of the sound without you seeing them first. Tricky but doable.
