    I have been hunting a farm for years and was told by theland owner that the "nasty" neighbor would never let anyone hunt his 600 acres. Well I met the "nasty" neighbor a couple weeks ago and after a nice conversation I had permission to hunt coyotes!

    I headed to the farm late Sunday afternoon and set up in an open pasture against a water tank looking down a fence row. Put one call and decoy in the pasture 60 yards in front of me and another call on a fence post. I ran crow gathering on the Fury and started eastern cottontail on the Shockwave. Set the remotes down and looked up to see two yotes running at the decoy. That fast. I picked up the rifle to realize the scope covers were still on. The first yote picked up the decoy and bolted. I got off a shot at him and missed. The second yote ran across the pasture to my right and I got off a few running shots (love the AR). Quick check and I missed on all shots.

    Still had about 20 minutes til dark and decided to stay put and let things calm down. After 5 minutes started coyote death and let it run. 5 minutes later and I look to my right and along the tree line 150 yards out I see a coyote. This time I didn't miss! Nice clean male.

    I had two separate packs calling on either side of me as I walked out of the pasture. Give em a couple weeks and I will be back!

    Nice to get a place like that where the Coyotes have never felt any hunting pressure. I does not surprise me that two Coyotes showed up so fast...they have never been shot at.
    Go back and kill about a dozen more. I bet that place will be crawling with them in late Summer after the pups get out and about.
    If he cuts a lot of Hay they will be in the hayfields just about dark in June.

    Good PR work makes the difference. Few landowners object to predator hunting.Unless the land is leased to game hunters. Nice work give it a week and return.
