Well I decided to take a walk this evening on a few of the properties I regularly hunt, to do some turkey scouting, and look for some sheds. I almost always take my shotgun along with some turkey loads just in case I were to run across some groundhogs, which is pretty common, or a coyote, which has never happened before. I was about 200 yards into the second property walking in a brushy creek bottom, when I saw this girl about 20 yards in front of me digging at something in some thick briars. I immediately reacted, pulled up, and shot. She took 4 turkey loads at 20 yards through thick brush before she finally stopped moving, with the fourth shot being a 10 yard finishing headshot. Shes about a 40 lb female, and my first coyote kill. The funny thing is, I have never seen a coyote track or any coyote sign on this property, and I actually was just there two weeks ago in the snow, specifically hunting them. Guess sometimes its better to be lucky than good...
