Weekday mornings this fall is my time to hunt out of a blind I have set up on some private property that my friend owns.
I was wondering why I stopped seeing all the turkeys that I was seeing a couple weeks ago (I was regularly seeing the Four Stooges from my blind).
Well, this morning, a police car with its sirens blaring rode by on a road that is about a mile away. The woods LIT UP with coyotes in ALL directions. I mean, I heard them in front of me, in back of me. I tried counting them by the sounds of the howls, there had to have been at least 8, maybe 10. And some of them were no more than 100 to 200 yards away from me. They were real close. Heard a couple farther away, but most were super-close.
I knew this place had coyotes in the past (I even saw one during fall turkey season last year), but the ladies must have been seriously busy having pups the past year because this is by far the most I've ever heard at one time.
No way I'm going to be able to get rid of them by hunting. I might have to take the trapping course and get a license.
