Removed 3 off a larger ranch today. 1st 3 sets were quiet, even though I would have put $$ on at least 1 coyote at each place. 4th set the mangy female comes trotting into the call & sticks her nose on it then turns around and thwaap, neck shot. That happened so very fast as she popped up perfectly down wind and should of busted me when I saw her at 40 feet passing me like I was a nobody! The other 2 are of the same female at a different location. Called for 17 min, wrapped it up & bunched my stuff up to stand and a pair just pop over a down wind rise looking right at me....OH Pooo. Call is off, remote in pocket and I'm froze as they try to figure me out. They turn heads and I sit & get sticks back up, freeze as they see me & turn sideways so I get the rifle in the sticks as they start to come torwards me & drop over the hill crest. I slowly get the remote out and flip the call on a preset sound and the female is 60 yards facing me so I drop her and figure the male is gone. Nope he hears the call and pops up over the crest and I let a round into it, see it run then crash into the ground. I collect my goods, drag the female to an open spot and go to get the male. WHAT....nothing but a 4' long crash spot on the ground where he went down. "No way" I think. it has to be piled up right here. Nope, no where to be found. I track it and find 4 other spots it crashed into the ground on going down a drainage. I spent 45 min tracking to no avail and am bummed.
