Yotes Beware!


The final day of deer season for the 2011-2012 year found us with a bit of desperation hanging over us.  My Dad and I have waited around and let many deer walk this season forgetting that we needed to put some meat in the freezer.  We figured we could just walk on out to the club and take the first doe that came along on just about any afternoon.  Well the deer were not cooperating with our plans.  It is legal to feed deer in Georgia and our deer have gotten into the habit of coming to the feeder soon after it goes off.  For the past two days no deer were coming to the feeder on our #1 doe stand.  Tonight we found out why.

Pictured above is a very large coyote that my Dad took with his Thompson Center .308, shortly after this predator cruised right under the feeder looking for an easy meal.  We have been hearing these coyotes all season and tonight one finally showed itself.  It was not exactly what my Dad was after on his final deer hunt, but it did make for a pretty picture.

Reid and I were on the other side of the club taking care of a little business of our own while Dad was managing our predator population.  We were lucky enough to take about a 140 pound doe with only 30 minutes of shooting light left in our season.  The freezer will once again be full.

I am going on record as of right now that all coyotes have been forewarned.  The game call is charging and my varmint rifle is sighted in and ready.  I have been educating myself on the practice of calling in predators and I have nothing but time on my hands until turkey season.  Its time to take down some of these deer and turkey killers and I plan on doing just that.

I look forward to blogging about some yote hunting success!  Stay tuned!

Just finished with deer myself and ready to whack - or try to whack - a few dogs. They are pretty darn sharp, though

I HATE coyotes! They sound like ghouls when they get to yipping outside my window at night. It is creepy! One less 'yote is ok with me! Good luck on your future hunts!

Can you come up here and hunt some of these ugly hogs?! They are ruining my riding trails! :)

I'll never forget when a coyote was in our front yard and daddy was about to shoot it through the window screen of the trailer.... then LINSEY just had to come home from disney world at that very moment and scare it away.

They better stay away from our farm or Donkey will be after them!
