If you can "Picture" this...
Mid February IN MONTANA' An actual traffic jam on the river.
Who'da figured ?
The boy and I went to check ice the other week and this week we thought we would do a coyote calling/boat trip on the river.
We got at the ramp fairly early but not before sunup.
Thinking there was no rush, WHAT 4 other boats where already in the water and dispersed someplace on a 149 mile peace of water a 100 yards wide, the river.
Well OK but DANG. We push off there is BLM/State land inter mixed with a lot of private land along the river, we had to find Public as to not be trespassing by bullet.
Found a few spots but where foiled by boat traffic. Found some more and yup more boats of fisherman already there. A wonderful day for just being out , to bad we did not have our fishing stuff with us we found and marked some great looking spots to come back to and fish.
We did make a call that did produce a responder but it would not commit to come across a 5oo yard stretch of flat grass. The 6mm did a very valiant try but the little movement from the boat can take the MOA out of a rifle at 500 yards. The coyote almost went dead and never saw us and probably never herd the shot. A puff of dust in it's face and it trotted back in to the brake wondering what the heck???

Anyway some pics...

Sure wouldn't have expected that much traffic, D! A certain coyote should count its lucky stars.
