Missed my first coyote today

i was pickin my way up the side of the ridge today around 1pm when i jumped 2 deer just off the top above me. They headed out the ridge top to my left. A couple minutes later they came back, stopped above me for a second then headed straight over the top away from me. I stood there for a moment wondering why they did what they did, then i caught movement to my left. Just a little lower on the ridge then they were was a coyote walking right at me. It was fairly open timber and i thought sure he would pick me out standing there beside a big oak. he didn't and continued toward me. He stopped behind a tree and i got down on one knee and ready for when he came out from behind it. when he did he looked right at me and froze. I knew if i was gonna get a shot it was gonna have to be now. He was standing looking right at me from about 60 yards. I tried to hold at the base of his neck, but the sites pretty much covered his whole body. KABOOM! he jumped straight up in the air, wheeled around and disappeared back over the top. when i got up to where he was i saw i had shot right under him. The bullet tore a line in the snow right between his paw prints. What i wouldn't have given for my rifle at that moment! First coyote i ever got a shot at in pa. Just thought i would share! WF

Hopefully, you will get another opportunity.

Good luck for the remainder of the season.

My brain is like a sponge; lots of holes for everything to fall out.
