Dogs still vocal up your way? They have shutdown down here in south Georgia. Very tight lipped right now and denning is in full swing. Having more success going back to rabbit distress. Males are hunting hard to feed two mouths.[/Q

They are still vocal if you can get in close, but we aren't hearing multiple packs light it up.

Let one slip in behind us on weeping woodpecker, he took off when I turned around and saw him. Then switched to rabbit and had another come in around 250 yds, saw another come down the hill, but he winded us and took off. The third could've been the same dog we saw first that had worked around us.

Coyote came out of woods on pond dam, seemed very uninterested in the call. Got my thermal on him about the time he stepped off pond dam into woods.

At first set we did have a huge sow come into field. We treat hogs as targets of opportunity and tag teamed her with the creedmoors.

Just got a new ICOtec GC-350. Tried it out this afternoon. First set up was on a road along a fence line. Started with the ICO Young Rabbit and had a good sized yote checking it out within minutes. He started going away from me and I used the opportunity to get my rifle into position and switched to the Mouse/Vole sounds to turn him around. He came back, but kept to the edge in the brush and finally spooked and took off. I never got a clean shot, so I passed. Didn't want to educate him. At least I know the caller will draw them in.

After a couple of dead sets we moved to another property. Rabbit distress yielded no results so we used a locator howl just to try to see what was in the area. Within 5 minutes this female came in silently. She was a poor female most likely from nursing. Her bag was dried up and I would guess her pups were not nursing any longer.

Raining but we thought we would try it. Met at our staging point to wait rain out. Wouldn't stop raining so we decided to scrap the hunt. Before we left I powered up my thermal to scan the field next to the house we met at. Two dogs in field. Played pup distress 3 and brought them in on a string to within 150 yards. One of the pair started circling downwind so I barked and stopped the pair and we both..........missed.facepalm:

Several coyotes located with foxpro howls. Moved several hundred yards to close the gap and howled again. No response. Opened up with Tony Tebbe Den Raid. After a sequence of that waited several minutes before a coyote broke cover and entered the field. She moved up a wooded fence row towards us and unexpectedly jumped over into the fence row and we never saw her again. We know it was a female because she squatted to pee while we watched her. We should have taken the shot when we had it.

We were riding around shooting pigs and really hadn't planed on hunting yotes. Killed a few pigs before dark. After dark we drove into a field and could see a couple of nice sized pigs in the back. Checked the wind and it was perfect blowing right in our face. drove to about 150 yards of the pigs and stopped. As we were getting ready to shoot the pigs they spooked and ran off. I thought we had spooked them. I saw some movement just over the crest of the hill behind them, and it was this little female sneaking up on 2 big pigs. I put the lip squeak on her and got her to stand still we double taped her IMG_0829 (1).jpg

Used a lone howl that brought one through the peanut field on a string. She was about 30 yards away when I dispatched her. Another female was at edge of field, pup distress locked her up till my hunting partner was able to dispatch her at about 125 yards.

First set was on an overgrown field that was unplanted. Knee high grass. Called in a pair that locked up at about 300 yards. Was running some new James Bostock sounds and they came in to them but we just couldn't close the deal. Second set was with some educated dogs. We threw these new sounds at them and had a female step out of the woods on top of us to the Boss Pup Panic sound. The 6mm creedmoor promptly dropped her. We kept calling and her mate came into the peanut field but ducked back into the woods before we could get a shot. Heard 3 groups at this location while running coyote vocals as well.
