    Default Found that last coyote of the season

    I took this coyote on one of my last stands of the season.....so in mid March....
    He came in to some dying rabbit sounds. He appeared on the trail about 5 minutes into the calling set. I first seen him on the trail standing there looking in my direction, he must have seen me move or something because he got a little spooked and headed back into the bush only to reappear in the opening below. He stopped broadside so I took the 150 yd shot......
    At impact he did a spin and took off running. I thought I hit him well but when I went over to impact area all I saw was a little bit of hair and a little bit of blood.....
    I followed his tracks as best I could but with very little blood and the hard snow I eventually lost his tracks in the hard spotty snow that was there at the time. I was a little disappointed especially since I knew/thought I hit him well but I know sometimes it always doesn't work out......

    So out for a turkey hunt in the same area, decided to go look around again and I find him about 120yds from the original shot.....Not sure how I missed him the first time around but judging from the results, looks like I did... Until next season...

    Right on Frank. What's going on with its face? Looks like it was cut at some time.

    No, not cut.......I moved his head with my boot and noticed the fur was detaching from the skin.....I guess after 6 weeks it's expected.
    Pretty proud finding him as this has been my personal best year, with 15 recovered....
