Eased into a pasture with cows and found some shadows to set up in. Started with a invitation howl and waited a bit. played mature cotton tail in distress and had one come out of the fence row I had just walked down on my way into the field, he was close no more than 30 yards when I shot him he was flopping around doing the death flop and got up doing his best to hop off on three legs and falling down a time or two. The cows got in the way and didnt allow a real good follow up shot

The Predator Outlaws got out for a couple of sets. First set several had been seen on game cameras. Ran a few Rick Paillet female howls and got a vocal response. Waited a few and hit a few bars of Den Raid. It didn't take long. A pair came in so hot I couldn't stop them with a bark. My hunting partner shot one but it made it to the woods. I couldn't connect on a running shot on the other.

Had to go to a meeting out of town for a few days and there was a rifle range and open terrain behind it. I walked around and found a few tracks and some old scat and decided to give it a try. I set the call out and ended up on the top of a berm on the backstop, kind of a awkward position and a little uncomfortable. No response to the howl or cotton tail. I had seen some hog sign so I gave piglet a try and had one show up and flat out missed shot just a little low

The night started out well had a group respond to the call right off the bat but they were pretty far off and never showed. Moved to the other side of the farm and away from the chicken house and had 4 come to the call I could only see 1 of the dogs just the top of his head and ears and was not exactly sure of what I was looking at before I could get a good look at him my buddie had 3 dogs show up I could not see due to terrain features and shot one. He says he hit it but I don't count them as a kill unless I can touch them.
The second stop we had what sounded like a pretty good pack respond to the first howl and then it went dead nothing else. The call batteries were going dead and it effects the quality of the sound so I figure they knew something was not right.

stopped on the way home and hunted a field that has produced well over the years. Nothing better than killing one on the way home from hunting with my buddie. I'm afraid there has finally been enough development to push the yotes on down the road. It's a sad day for sure

First set was text book perfect. Set up on a pasture with a wind in our face and thick clear cut behind us. Invite howl got the pact to respond then Jack Rabbit in distress had them come on the run straight to the call. The lead dog just about ran me over I missed the only thing I can figure is I shot low max distance was no more than 20 yards. the other 2 sets were dead. Even when we miss or get busted its a rush when they show up like that.

The Predator Outlaws haven’t been out in a while but we were contacted by a cattle producer telling us he had lost a calf to coyotes. We ran a couple of sets in two different pastures and put the beatdown on these using vocals. Three more south Georgia dawgs down.

Went to a friend's house, and called a set. His back yard borders a good size creek and is good for a set every now and then. Started with an invitation howl and then moved to crying kittens. There enough houses around that any cat or kitten sounds produce a yote one out of three times. Sure enough I had one just show up dont even know where he came from shot him and he hit the wood line listened to him scream for a while.

Man I hate crippling anything.
I do too. I have seen Yotes take more devastating hits than any other animal I have hunted and run off. I am sure he died as I have heard those sounds before, I prefer a clean kill just doesn't always happen. I see some pretty interesting things with thermal as far as wounds and killing go. Blood and body organs show up since they are hotter than the air. I had a friend shoot a yote one night and he ran 400 yards or so before he died and left a trail of body parts that was truly amazing. I have called up more than one 3 legged yote over the years and I am sure those lost their legs to gunshot wounds, never killed one though they stay out of range. Yotes are a tough and smart animal and a challenge as well

The Predator Outlaws got out for four sets. First two were dead but the last two had some action killing these three. Pup distress was on fire and we took no prisoners, back home by 10:00pm.
