    Default Pretty proud of my pup

    I could only hunt until 830am so I had my dog loaded at daylight looking for fresh tracks. Dad calls and says two coyotes crossed the road heading behind the barn so by the time i got there they were long gone into the bush.


    Soon as my dog hit the track he was going ballistic so I let him go. About 2 minutes later he's in the bush so I made the long walk to the back fence line between the two bushes were they usually cross.

    5 minutes later hear comes one of the coyotes along the fence line right for me, stopping every few steps to look back. (The dog was running the other coyote) I let it come to about 100 yards then I shot as I was worried it was going to wind me if any closer. One down

    I figured the other one would come same way so I waited. I could tell my dog was right on the coyote just by the way he was barking. My dad was at the barn listening and heard me shoot so he started to watch . Hes always got the gun nearby. Then I hear a shot from the barn. Dog still going nuts in the bush long ways from where the shot came from so I wasn't sure it was us.

    Dad ended up shooting the coyote on his laneway about 75 yards from the house. This third coyote was trying to sneak out the house laneway to the road LOL

    Next thing I know the dog is heading north to the next property where it's the last property before the major road. I just got to the paved road to watch the coyote cross. Thankfully the dog was a piece behind it and I got there in time to tackle my dog in the ditch before he made it across the road. Cant hunt over there so that coyote lives another day.

    Dog wasn't very happy but I took him back to the farm and let him trail the two dead ones and he was happy again lol

    Then the snow started pretty hard so I quit, was late for my appointment, got reamed out for it but was still so worth it haha

    Both these coyotes got head shot so pretty graphic photos but the one my dad got was a very old coyote. All canine teeth are wore down to nubs and missing a bunch in the front. Both males too hides were decent I skinned them both.


    That's 4 coyotes in 3 days shot in that field. I got one Thursday night and Friday night as well just sitting near dark. So many turkeys back there I think the coyotes are trying to get them when they roost as the noise they make flying and falling out of the trees every night. Find alot of Turkey kills in the bush.

    The one from Thursday night has mange or was rubbed real bad. I made a bad shot at 340 yards and luckily hit him again before he made it into the Bush. Very small coyote and in rough shape, didn't post that photo as .22-250 made a mess

    Sounds like you have a great hound. Well done.
    I’m suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    he looks like my bonnie( passed) Pup. She loved to run the jack rabbits out on the plains.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    Congrats. It is nice to see a single dog push them like that. They occasionally turn on the hounds when I get out with some guys my way. Any concern of that with your dog? Just noting that there turned out to be 3 of them and one dog so I was wondering if that ever happened. They never hurt the dogs as far as I know, but occasionally hold or push them off. Mainly happens with the younger dogs as well to clarify.

    I'm not too worried running my home block (dad, uncle and neighbouring farms that are all side by side), as I can access any side of the bush if need be and they are relatively small sections and coyotes usually don't hold up in there, Just circle a bit until the dogs push them out . My dog isn't a fighter, he will bay but wont get in there and tussle. My buddy that has 4 hounds just lives down the road from my dad and I could have got his dogs if need be.

    I wont run him by himself in the larger swamps around that I know are holding a lot of coyotes. We usually only go in there when we got a full crew and all 5 hounds.

    Only time we have had problems with being out numbered is after dark, we figure 5 coyotes were circling my kennel with my dog in there as he was going bananas one night and looking at the tracks in the morning.
