New yote hunter and hooked!
« on: January 18, 2017, 06:22:04 PM »
I've always shot coyotes but never just went out specifically just to hunt them. The older I get (32) the more I just want to be out hunting so naturally I've been looking for ways to extend my hunting season. Sooo bought a coyote call and a "how too" video with great audio and proceeded to test my marriage. I'm happy to report that you all inspired this new hobby and I have called in 2 coyotes successfully to date! I know it's not a lot but hey, feels like a win and my son (8 years old) almost was ran over by a male so of coarse he's now all about it.  Anyways thanks to all of you that have posted "how to's" and "how nots".

He is! He has had his own .22 since 4 yrs and got his first shotgun this weekend at 8. He will be a heck of a hunter someday. hunting is like Christmas for this kid! It definitely keeps me motivated to step up my game and do things by the book.

I've been to the green but just for lunch maybe twice per year. I retired the night life and fist fights when I had kids. My name is James Hyde

Just for the heck of it.

In 2009 I was elk hunting in Utah with a group of super duper top O the line world hunters. I was definitely the "wild card" and the youngest. We were out on four wheelers scouting when the head Elmer Fudd called a halt, pointing out a coyote about 400 yards out. The leader looks at me and says "well, show us what you got." The rest of the group chuckles and winks at each other. So sounding like a pro I say "what's the range?" In a confident tone. And someone pulls out the range finder, " 369 yards" he says in a laugh.

So up til now I'm just kind of being a smart aleck playing along, well I must have used my best John Wayne voice because they were all waiting. Standing behind my four wheeler and shooting free hand I raised my Ruger mkII 30-06 and squeezed off a shot. I lost the yote with the recoil and couldn't see it at all, thinking I missed clean but not wanting to tip my hand if the yote just disappeared and no one wanted to investigate, I'd just play it cool and let em think what they wanted too! They just kinda looked at me and said "you dropped him!" In a somewhat reverent tone. Still not believing them I cooly leaned against the four wheeler and waited for the guy to go check (my wheeler was blocked in). The guy gets off and picks up the coyote by the tail! I was grinning ear to ear!

When he got back we all surrounded it and saw that I had shot it right in the head! Offhand! At 369 yards! In the wind!

They slap my back and say it was the most amazing freehand snap shot the've ever seen. From that point on I was one of the guys and they still keep in touch to this day.

When I think about it I just laugh cause I was aiming for the heart!!!!
At least I have a picture to prove it, and remind me that a little BS never hurts.
