Spent a few days out west calling Coyotes. We usually don't go out there this early in the year but with work schedules and such we had to push it up. Seems to be a few coyotes out and about.

Well I give up the pictures won't post. We ended up killing 33 coyote though. Plus its probably good Leonard can't see the skyline. Lol

Good Hunting Chad

Hey! Where's the pics?

I was hoping they would show a little skyline so I can guess, (figure out) where you were? [Smile]

UTDUDE;
As long as you blur out the sign in the background that says "DONNA'S RANCH - WELLS NEV." El Bee won't have a clue as to where you were at.

Lol. KoKo that's funny you mention that. My brothers and I had a good laugh about that when we stopped there to get gas. Remember the line by Robert Duvall in Lonesome Dove when he's talking about getting a poke. We joked that we could stop at Donna's for a poke.lol

Sounds like a great time! The coyotes, not Donna's [Big Grin] .

Does seem to be a few coyote about. Me and Tim went out last weekend and killed 17 in a day and a half. But, only ONE pup, out of that 17 coyotes. Could be a fluke. But about 7, 8 years ago, something like that, we went a whole season and only killed 2 YoY for the whole year. Coyote numbers were way down the next year and took a couple years after that to come back.

Hope I'm not seeing the same thing again.

But, a few weeks ago in a completely different area, we saw plenty of pups. So, even if it is bad news, maybe it's not going to be as widespread as it seemed to be last time?

We shot about 10 yoy... But most were adults. Should of killed over 40 coyotes. Missed a few easy shots shaking off the rust I guess.lol I did shoot a whopper that had to weigh over 40 lbs. It really was a great time, hell anymore just getting away is worth it, killing a few Coyotes is just bonus. It wasn't to bad though for 4 1/2 days of calling.

Good Hunting Chad

Believe it or not, I'm not very familiar with Wells. Too many Utes, for one thing.

But, as I recall, there was a street, kind of a dead end. and there was a bunch of pastel high fences around the parking which prevented the casual observer from monitoring the comings and goings. I was never a customer, so I can't remember why I happened to be there? Just my little idiosyncrasy, I never believed in paying for pussy.

When last I was in the area, on the Ute side by Wendover, was treated to several interesting "things". First, came across an open area where somebody had butchered a steer, always figured it was rustling. Second, I marveled at the brown UPS vans negotiating those back roads. Third, we were treated to an ariel display of B1 bombers flying some interesting low level maneuvers, you know, following the terrain?

Figure out how to post those pics. Hey Fred!

Good hunting. El Bee

I saw Chad's pic tags, they were properly formed. He was doing that part right.

Only thing I can think, the pictures aren't actually hosted? Looked like the url was pointing to a storage share or something.

Zero..... Didn't even take a spotlight...All day stands mostly daylight until around noon-2pm each day the wind really blew the first 3 days. 5 taken with the shotgun the rest were taken with .204 Rugers. Didn't that big Male picture show up.

Yeah that sheep camp is the way to go. Wood burning stove, queen and double size bed. Not roughing it by any means.lol

edit: yeah, I overlooked the big dog. Sorry

They're still about a month away from being skinable I'd guess. That big one looked pretty good though. And yes my gawd there are ALOT of rabbits out there this year. And lots and lots of Chukars too.

Oh and I forgot we called in a BIG Bobcat too. Came in to about 75 yards. Really pretty one.

Chad, don't get me started on those cats! You know how I feel about chickenshit regulations prejudicial towards non residents.

<sigh> The Good Old Days!

Good hunting. El Bee

edit: that is the single reason why I might consider moving to Nevada rather than Arizona. The cats up there are far better, and more of them than AZ.

edit: PS on the big cat. Did he lope in? Rather than sneak in from bush to bush?

Yeah I agree about that bullshit law. Actually kind of funny we had just called and missed a coyote when it came sneaking through the brush, at first I thought it was another coyote until it hit a clearing then I knew right away it was a cat. Just kind of slinked away like it thought nobody had see it.lol

Hell yeah you had a good time! Glad to see it.

My Dad was a resident to the west there and just started to trap bobcat right before he got sick.

Pretty simple explanation for the non resident hate. Not a satisfactory explanation. But simpl...

Good going.

That is one big male for sure! Anymore, I like getting one big-old-male more than a double of yoy's.

Edit;I need to learn to spell "good" sheesh

Thanks Dave, yeah it really was a good week not just killing the Coyotes, spending some time with my brothers. Don't get to do that as often as we used to.

Lonny yeah those big Coyote are nice except dragging them back to the truck.lol

Yeah Dave don't wear much camo anymore. I do have alittle Sitka camo that I bought for hunting ducks and geese that doubles for Coyote Camo when its Wet or Cold, that and a couple Camo hoodies but that's about it.lol
