I turn the caller on at 0605 and start scanning around....about 1 minute into the call I catch a glimpse of something to my right moving away from us. One minute after that we get a coyote coming in from that same spot to our right. He gets about 30 yards in front of us and slows down just to take a quick look in our direction. As soon as he looks back towards the caller and decoy I get him in my crosshairs and start barking at him but he wouldn't stop!
I take a shot and I hit him a little high and towards his rear. He starts spinning around biting at his tail and my buddy takes a shot at about the same time I do and he still won't go down....might have hit him in the gut since he was spinning around....by this time he's jumping and spinning and my buddy says "head shot"....bang, he's down. I look at my watch, it's now 0607.
We end up doing three more stands but no other takers.
Everyone said after my first one it would get easier...I wasn't expecting a 2 minute stand though!! I'm sure there's more shutouts in store for me.
Sorry, not the greatest quality picture...Rick, you might wanna ask Santa for an iphone...lol
