the trapline has been a mess for about a week with the weather snow to rain scenario......ive had action with a opossum that set off the sea shell set but got lucky a rock stopped the jaws.....then a small this years coon we caught & then let go a day after that......then the next day we had a visitor at three sets that tore them up after I had set off the foot holds in the wet weather....well Saturday was a wash out so yesterday I got up did a brake job on my grandmas car then we hit the trapline for those repairs.....today we had #14 when we did our check....forgot the cell so it was just an after the fact photo shoot...….time to go find some pheasants after two days in the house...….BANG BANG!!!!!! thumbup1

just like Samuel Jacksons wallet in Pulp Fiction my dogs collar should say BAD M$#%#^ F%#$# tt2 …..15 minutes into the first field in the drizzle Super Girl puts a rooster in the air we take with one shot......we then take a 30 minute walk thru a path in the woods we hadn't been on...…...after that we get back out into the tall grass field and I take her down another lane...…..we get 10 feet into it & she goes hot so I just stop & the second she starts back towards me a hen comes off the ground between us I let fly...…..we walk another 40 feet and shes still hot so I stop again.....this time she flushes a rooster about 15 yards with a giant sticker bush between me and the bird...…...the first shot thru the stickers not even a feather...…..then as soon as im ready to unload round 2 as its clearing the heavy brush rooster #2 leaves the ground less then 10 yards in front of me...…..im still on the other bird and pull the trigger not even close as that bird startled me...…..so now I turn back to the one that's just left the ground and down him with the last load in the gun...…...50 minutes 30 walking in the woods and we had our limit of 2...they were holding tight today with the drizzly/rainy weather for sure…….get back to the truck get some coyote ammo to try some sets...…..walk out about 100 yards on the other side and she puts another rooster in the air for a total of 5 birds for the day...….it kept drizzling on us the whole time so we came home early to rest up for tomorrow......BANG BANG!!! thumbup1

went to larger woods today that i been waiting all season for them to close this gate......they do it right after the slug slingers wrap up gun season so it was most likely shut two days ago......so we walked out about 3/4 of a mile maybe more to this cut thru....in the second pic the wind was in our face and to the left.....we were facing to the west just like the pic so the wind was from the northwest & the caller was out in front of us down the lane about 50 yards.....we called rabbit for 10 minutes then I made a couple howls with my howler & let my dog walk out a bit...….she goes over the hill to the right messes around comes back & stands behind me...….I then start up a fox distress & I just went with the first one which I didn't know was gray fox distress but it was.....about 3 minutes later this gray fox comes from the exact spot my dog just came back from......first thing I think when I see it is we called a cat......he turns to leave as I stand and as the cat looks back he turns into a grey fox...…..as soon as he sees im not what hes looking for he starts to run & I light him up with the Benelli at less then 8 yards......Super Girl gets in and gets a mouth full of fur & its over......I think im gonna have this guy done up in some sort of mount...…...GREAT DAY OUT...…..BANG BANG!!!! thumbup1

well yesterday I thought I seen a cat & today I actually did...…..my dog treed a small wild cat while doing our check this morning.....the digger coyote I thought we caught two days ago wasn't the digger...….now the coyote along with that cat is getting on the logs to get at my bait from the back & also the coyote made another dig spot in the leaves as well...…..now that he seen those set off traps for two days this one could be a challenge......also had fresh coyote tracks right out back in the snow in the patch of woods right behind my house this morning even after taking 14 coyotes so far they are still running my back yard & traps...…..BANG BANG!!!! thumbup1

missed a coyote free hand with the Remy 223 the Friday night before Christmas as I caught it on the way back to the truck standing in the trail we had walked out..…..had to shoot thru some weeds so it may have been deflected but I missed that one at about 75 yards...….the next day Saturday I seen a grey fox run out in front of us on a grassy trail while we were walking out to call...…..lit the Benelli and thru lead but it was a no go and missed at about 45 yards.....went out last night and called one up in a corn field about 200 out but he didn't like it and as soon as I seen him and moved the gun on him he left as quick as I seen him...…..made another set on the way back out and as we walked north I caught two coyotes about 300+ yards away and 100+ on the other side coming straight south towards us.....I immediately drop in the grass next to the field get the shooting sticks and call out...…..i hit rabbit and scan out and they are both closer but behind a knoll in the field & the one looks right towards me then puts his head down and I know hes coming with the other one in tow...….I get my gun and light shinging just past the knoll in the field and he walks right into the light trotting about 110 yards out…...i lead him and let lead loose & hear the whop as he falls....I stand looking to play double down and try to free hand the other over the knoll.....I cant see it and after I scan back I think I see my coyote leaving BUT now cant see my dog so I cant shoot at anything for safety...…long story short me and my dog chase this coyote 300+ yards thru stuff we shouldn't have and had to leave it due to vision and density of the brush......it bothered me all night so today we went to look for it.....walked my dog in this thick stuff right where I brought her out last night and in 20 seconds shes got the coyote found and I finally see it only 20 feet away & still barely could find it in the daylight in this thick stuff and then I finished it with the Benelli...…when I first got to it I didn't think it was the one I shot but then see the hole in and it was perfect right behind its shoulder BUT about two inches low IMO with a pencil hole in quarter out the other side BUT still must have missed vitals and I couldn't believe it was still alive let alone able to get on its feet and still where we left it last night....absolutely WILD to say the least..we definately get an E+ for EFFORT on this one...….BANG BANG!!!! thumbup1

I would like to THANK Leupold for the GREAT customer service they provided on my VX6 Fire Dot thumbup ..sent them a letter about my gun hitting the ground hard once last season and how it was my fault & losing my scope sock on another hunt I was using it due to drizzle at night as well as losing my rubber eye relief cover at some point and they took care of it all & then some even though the scope still worked just fine when i sent it in...all i wanted was a review after i knew it had been down hard just to help prevent any potential problems from arising this season..first they fixed the scope by replacing a lost eye relief rubber, as well as replacing the internal circuit board for the Fire Dot & the battery cap in addition to that as it lights the Fire Dot up......then when I got it back they sent a new scope sock and a set of Leupold aluminum screw in scope caps/lense covers all FREE of charge......cant ask for anything much more then that IMO......BINESS!! thumbup1

I have also watched the baiting thread guys have great success for the last several years and decided I can watch only no longer thumbup ....so this season im gettin in the GAME myself...…….started a clean up and intend to make a dirt enbankment backing to shoot into.....still have to get an alerting system but the clean up im doing will keep them inside the woods and feel a bit more at ease when on my bait.....we shall see...….i came to the conclusion with the fact I caught (14) coyotes across the lake in the first 45 days of a 150 day season last year with just a few sets and had to quit when my boat motor water pump went down and I called it a season on the trapping......well this tells me there just may be a few more for this season to trap and bait in right out back tt2 ...couple views from my bathroom window down then from the bait site back...BINGO DINGO!! thumbup1

p.s. my hunting buddy doesn't do much during the clean up get ready crap just supervise BUT when it is her turn its GAME OVER!! thumbup

Looks like a plan. Is last picture from planned location looking toward back door of your garage? Hope all this activity is not disturbing your pup. lol
