Call me crazy! After one of the worst storms in the Midwest history, I jumped at the chance to go call coyotes with my cousin, Mark Shumate. I had just finished cleaning my driveway when he arrived. I gathered up my Mad Ultimate One coyote caller, my Thompson Center Encore, barreled with a 204 caliber and off to the big snowdrifts we went!

Temperatures 18 below at night, midteens to low 20s in the day equates to a perfect scenario for calling coyotes. We had two down by noon and then decided to make it a “family affair”. We contacted Troy Dawson, my cousin, and told him we were headed his way. The afternoon yielded two more kills on film, one by Troy and the other by Mark.

Set-ups were short and sweet. Always using the wind for a down wind appearance by the coyotes. Great times, cold weather….call me crazy! I’ll be there.
