My Son And His 1St............warning Carnage!!!
Posted 12 June 2012 - 07:00 AM
We got to the ranch around 5:30am and made our way to the valley where BgBambo and I have called in a lot of yotes.
I played kitten dis. and at about the 8 min mark this coyote appeared looked like last years pup real scrony and nasty looking.
I had it in my sights but I didn't want to shoot it I wanted my son to have his chance.It saw me move when I swung my rifle to get it in the scope and it was look at me then the Mojo then me and it finally let down its guard and continued to the Mojo I wanted to see how this would play out I could tell it was a young yote and I was hoping it would commit I'm getting tired of shootingall the coyotes when I take my son.........I'm just a dawg hawg with every body else time for my son to drop one.
I had the video camera rolling but in my hasty to get the yote to stop again for my kid to get a shot I forgot all about the video so I got the whole thing except the shot that got him his 1st coyote I'll still put it up later.
I whooped the coyote to a stop just off camera and it stopped broadside and the rest is handled by Colby and his Savage 243.
Colby made a nice 80-100 yd shot he did hit it a little far back but he told me on the way home he was shakin so much he didn't think he was gonna hit it but he did and now he's hooked like I am.
This was a good morning as he gets older I want to spend more time outdoors with him. Next year he can hunt deer can't wait for that.

Nice job on the coyote. Why wait till next year to hunt deer? There's no time like the present and this season will be a good start. Congrats again!
He's been deer hunting with me but I don't think he can pull the trigger till he's 12 and that's not gonna happen till next March.

His best friend a 10 yr old is fighting liver cancer and had to leave for UC Davis last night for transplant surgery so I was glad Colby decided to go with me it got his mind off Chad for a while and he got to be the outdoors boy he was before Chad got sick.
So as I'm typing this Chads mom just called and the surgery went good and so far his body isn't rejecting the Liver and it looks like right now he will be ok.
So I ask that everyone prays for Chad Silva so that he can come home and be a boy and friend to my son.

The smile on Colby's face says it all. I bet he'll remember that first coyote for the rest of his life. It is always great when our kids can spend time with us, learning about nature (and how to hunt it too). Way to go!
Sorry to hear about his young friend. That has to be tough on a family to have one so young going through so much. I pray that everything works out well so that his friend can come home a happy and active boy again.
