Not using the fox anymore
« on: July 06, 2018, 08:55:07 PM »
 I had read that using real fur for a decoy rather then a picture .

I have been having a dry spell getting the coyotes to come in under 500 yards. I have been using a fox pelt over our fox pro for quite some time with  diminishing effect.

 Today I went out to our old river brakes area to do some early morning calling. I got out there shortly after sun up.

Very first place I got on to BLM land I hid the truck and made a set. Bang had 4 coyotes pop up over a ridge at like 800 yards. They charged in to around 500 and stopped and set down. I messed with them for an hour and, they never made a move and I let a hail marry shot go and ran them off...I had the fox skin as normal.

Next spot I left it in the truck ,and used Kugo, the Montana coyote decoy .

Bang same thing , 3 coyotes popped up and started in.

But this time they kept coming. That is till the got distracted probably by a mouse or something. I could see they where pups, when they lost a little interest I would hit a coyote howl and get them back on tract. It took a long time but they got in to my comfort zone. I barked to stop them, but the just kept milling around and would not stand still, soon they got "Under" me and I could not see them. One gave me a shot at about 150 and I took it.





 

You would think it would be easy to find, Nope tall grass and grand stands of sage made it difficult .
The next 3 set where the same multiple pups coming in in there good old time. They all slipped in but would give me a shot.






 



 



 

 





 



 

AND only one of these

 

 

 



 

Just a bull snake

Dogs are getting wise, huh? You figured that out and made up for it, D. I thought that looked like a rattler when I first saw the picture.

Bull snakes down fall, spend there life trying to look and act like a rattlesnake.
They even coil and shake there tail and make a hiss that sounds like a rattlesnake.
 People kill them thinking there a rattler , its a shame the bull snake hunts and eats rattlesnakes, as well as mice and vermin..

Yeah on that, D. I haven't killed a snake in many years but used to hunt rattlesnakes. rattlesnakes are now protected here unless they present an immediate danger.

  :wink: Yeah, I think so. They are good eating but I haven't hunted them since they became protected.

 I knew a fella that was keeping some big eastern diamondbacks and milked them for their venom. He got drunk and was handling one of his biggest ones when it bit him. He was showing it to another fella I knew. The fella that got bit wasn't excited, claimed he was immune because he had been bitten so many times. An hour later he was dead. That happened here in town.

I tried to buy the snakes but the dead guy's landlady wanted a fortune for them.

So, are you planning on some more decoy changes, D?
