Well, sometimes your goals for a hunt change within seconds. That was the story with this mature male Coyote. We initially spotted the song dog about 200 yards away in a bean field. He was coming our way but re-routed through a brushy draw. I tried my best wounded mouse impression, but it sounded more like a leaky balloon. At that point I told Kyle to give me the camera and do his best rendition of a wounded mouse. This boy came flying in on a string looking for a free meal. He froze at about 18 yards and I sent a predator arrow and a Rage 2-blade through the lungs. He went about 80 yards and curled up.

He is a gorgeous mature male with a full coat. I have to thank my partner for his coyote-calling expertise. In my opinion, anytime a hunter has an opportunity to take a predator he or she should do so. There aren’t a whole lot of other hunters for these types of animals, so we should do our part. The area we were hunting is riddled with yotes and I am excited this one decided to be coaxed. Happy Hunting! -JJ and Kyle
