Yesterday morning I hunted a farm in Pike county. Got in early and had 3 birds going off around 6:15. Had one heading my way until a hen started yelping in the bottom. watched him follow her back up the hill he had just came down.. After about 20 minutes I caught movement out of the corner of my eye, and here comes a coyote. He is paralleling the ridge about 20 yards down on the hillside. I clucked a couple times to get him to look up the hill, and he locked in on my 2 hen decoys. He dropped low to the ground and was puttin the stalk on them. I just let him keep coming til he was 5 yards from the decoys and as he raised up to charge them I let him have it with 2 ounces of hevi 13 #5 shot. Nice sized male, I would guess 35 lbs. The farmer told me to take them out if I get a chance. He was glad to hear I got one. sam-r261 UP.Browser/184.108.40.206 (GUI) MMP/2.0
I got one in Scioto county last year that charged across the corner of a hayfield at the decoys. A buddy that regularly hunts with me has killed 5 in the past 3 years the same way. Was glad to get him before the poults hatch and fawns are born. sam-r261 UP.Browser/220.127.116.11 (GUI) MMP/2.0
