My hunting partner Michael and I went to three spots last night. Nothing at the first two pastures.

The third was a cut hay field. When we walked up there was one already in the field maybe 150 yards away.

I set up quickly and missed him. Just couldn’t get steady.

We put the call out and a couple of minutes later she came back. Michael made a great shot at 184 yards. He redeemed me ! 😃 212995C5-B9DE-4567-9EC2-60EF277F6264.jpeg

East wind,No moon,No calling.
Watching 2 freshly cut Hay Fields that we have seen Coyotes in,while cutting Hay this week. Heard one start howling in the bottom of the big field about 11:00 & waited for him to come out of the bottom,up to the big portion of the field where I was. Snuck to within 150 yds & just rested on a Hay bale. Howled & yipped a few times to see if others were nearby,but no takers. Turned out to be a Juvenile(this years Pup).

2 missed

My youngest son Chris went with Michael and I. Nothing on the first set. Second set Chris missed one at around 120 yard. It was his first hunt and first time ever shooting off a tripod.

I missed one on the last set at 260 yards. Probably should have held a little high on it….may have shot low.

First hunt on this property. The owner says he has a pig problem and that was the primary target. Trust me he does not have a pig problem, he did however have a Armadillo problem and we worked on that pretty hard.

Stopped by a place I hunt on the way home from Jasper County for a set. Had a yote come in behind me at the 40 min mark, the cows gave him away. He was probably 200 yards plus, not sure the range finder died. I think I made a noise, and it spooked him, he stopped broad side and I missed. A big disappointment I have been in a dry spell and that one should have broken the ice.

Carroll County hay field cut today. It’s a 50 acre field with about 30 in hay and the lower 20 along the river in pasture with cows.
Calm, dark and very foggy. I guess the light shower we had this morning caused the fog.
Foxpro X24 call, vole squeak and rabbit distress

This field is across the road from my house so I road my electric cart over. Opened the gate at about 8:45 and pulled around behind the barn. One was in the field mousing around. I had to turn my scope on and rested my gun across the windshield that was folded down. Was about 100-120 yard shot. It was a young female.

After about 30 minutes of scanning the field I moved to about mid field and did a little calling. Saw one deer and the neighbors house cats.

I killed a big male in this field in May.

Cool weather forced my to hunt a set tonight. Hunted a place that has produced well in the past but I guess the yotes had other things on their mind. I hear some dogs on this property if not see some pretty consistently, not sure where they were tonight
