Decided to go out today out to the 7C's ranch and do a little coyote control and enjoy some quiet me time away from the family. After getting a late start I loaded up my gear and daisy dog and hit the road. I left my house at around 1pm and after a 45 minute drive I was at my first stand. I set the caller on a pile of old wire and as I was walking to my spot I looked up and see two heads up on the horizon. I drop down and pull my binos up and see two pups playing about 200 yards away. I play Push Buttons on the caller hoping pup distress will bring in mom and dad but i forgot to turn on the call. So I do some pup distress on my diaphragm call and the pups come about 50 yards closer and sit down. I get steady on my shooting sticks hoping to get a 2 for 1 special an send the 95gr VLD down range. A pup drops in his tracks and the other goes into a frenzy of pup distress. He moved at the last minute and only caught some fragments is my guess. I chamber another and just as I touch off he makes a break for it and I miss. I sent one more before losin sight of him.

After searching for the second one and not finding him we head to stand #2. We're rounding a corner before we get where were going and daisy gets tense and starts growling. We move up a few more yards and a coyote bolts through the sage. 3 shots later and he disappears over the hill.

View from stand #2. Other than the coyote we bumped out nothing showed up. After making it a mile down the road realized I left my phone there so I had to drive back and find the sage brush i sat in to find it. And well it took a while since theuy all look the same. But I found it and headed back out.


After the phone ordeal I headed a different direction than before because my gut had told me to stop on the way by the first time. So I parked the Durango and we headed to stand number 3


Notice the dirt bank in the center? That was another den. I was hoping the coyotes would come down the drainage from either the top
Or below but after a series of howls a pup came out
Of the hole howling his little head off. I lined him up and dumped him on his 125ish yards.






On the way to stand 4 I ran into the rancher and his crew branding calves and have him a progress report and showed him pics. He said I was a stone cold killer but appreciated it since those "cute little pups" would eventually be gnawin on his calves. Stand 4 was a bust but the view Was worth it. all in all Seen 7 killed 3 possibly 4. Not a bad day happy Memorial Day everyone.

Haha nope no mercy when I'm around the only difference between the big ones and the little ones is ya have to have better aim for the little ones. The VLD'S made a nasty mess on the other two pups. I have some different angles on the head shot one but try are too graphic for the forum

I thought about trying the old barb wire trick but decide against it in case I snagged an adult. I wanted a wingman to cover me in case the fit hit the Shan and i got more than I bargained for

About as fun as going out and having to put down some dumb young calves when coyotes get a hold of them. Not all calling is about fun some of it is for predator controll and when a rancher calls and says he needs some take out you have to oblige or he will find someone who will. Coyotes are coyotes and pups will grow up to be PREDATORS. If your offended move on. This is a PREDATOR HUNTING FORUM not the cute puppy channel on Youtube.

Sometimes you have to go out and take care of some problems. Bragging all over the internet about something that is pretty offensive to a lot of people is in poor taste. At least one of the other sights pulled the pics of the dead pups.

This is just the kind of things that libs in your home state can use to set seasons on coyotes, restrict e-callers and night hunting. We've already lost the use of decoy dogs, hounds or even just having your bird dog along on a coyote hunt.

Killing coyotes is pretty offensive to some people. It don't matter if they are pups, if they just killed a calf, or if they attacked some little girl. Some things are better left untold but to make claims it makes you sick? C'mon pick a side. With all this antihunting coming from hunters why worry about the anti's?

I call and kill adult dogs. Those are like picking off squirrels if you guys thing that makes you a coyote hunter then go for .I want a challenge that's why I don't kill the ones I find in the fields they are to easy like shooting pups out side a den.I thought this a hard core calling forum a person would think it was with all the custom call makers.
