This is the first I have posted in a while cause I have forgot to hit "record" on the 3 before these since my last post.
Forecast called for rain to start at 11pm and I got home from an engagement at 8:30. Suz says "are you going out". I said, "can't decide for just 2hours which equals 2, maybe 3 sets". She says (AGAIN) "You should go since you won't be home next week, and they are calling for rain the rest of this week".
Wind directed me to this particular pasture just 5 miles from home. By the time I got there it was already drizzling but I talked myself into going for 1 set since I was there.
Got set up about 100yds from the suv and hit field mouse distress and I made 4-5 howls. At 3 minutes I see one coming then it disappeared into a hogback. When it reappeared, there was a branch in my sight line and the next thing I know it is walking into the hog back. Came back a couple minutes later with a buddy and died. 120yds. Male


I stayed in set with howls, distress, puppy sounds with silence mixed in and a while later I see another committing. It came to within 10-15yds of the dead one. I barked it stopped and it died. 130+yds. Male


I decided to stay a little longer with the same sounds as before. I could see on occasion 2-3 more in the pasture across the hollow but they did not seem interested to commit. They went out of sight, so I gave them what I felt was long enough to show up with no takers.
I decide to recover and get pics of the 2 dead ones. On my way to them I stopped a couple times to scan and saw one of them. Got prone and could not see it because of a hump a few yards in front of me. I crawled forward and found it in the scope. I barked, it stopped, I shot and it ran about 100yds before crashing. Double lunged and still went that far--never ceases to amaze me. If these 75 gr vmax hits bone they are DRT, this must have went between ribs going in as I have seen this before. You can see the other one I killed next as this one was faltering.
I moved down the hill about 20yds to get on the fence line for a steadier rest. Could not see it so grabbed a call and let out some rabbit. Here it comes. I bark with no results 2ce then did the "Korey" hey. It stopped and fell over. First was an unbred female at about 150yds. Male at about 110yds. was the 4th killed.
This set was almost 90minutes long and is the first time I ever killed 4 from a set--only killed 3 from the same set 1 time and have had very few with 2 kills. A great way to end the season as I prolly won't go in April or May unless called for calf/lamb killings.

Congrats on a strong finish to your season. Good stuff, thanks for sharing.
Night hunting predators is almost the most fun a man can have after dark.

I guess Suz should get 90% of the credit. Tehe
She and some friends just spent a week in your neck of the woods/sand—Nags Head.
