Raven help
« on: December 22, 2016, 05:53:15 AM »
Got this 36 pound male, yesterday morning. As I was calling, a raven came flying in, cawing.  The bird was out about 75 yards, and the hill that I was on dropped off just beyond him.  When he kept wheeling around out there, I decided that I had better get the rifle headed in that general direction....yep, it was a coyote.  When he showed up I was ready!

I always watch the birds. They say that not every magpie has a coyote, but every coyote has a magpie. Congrats

birds are great tattlers,when I see a magpie flare I ve learned thats about the distance a yote might spot me..Birds and hawks are many times the first responders,they also attract wiley..good job on the yote
