Went deer hunting Saturday morning. Saw four, three does and a little button buck fawn. He was a cute little fellow.
Went again Monday afternoon. Didn't see anything.
Went again this (Tuesday) afternoon. Didn't see any deer. Did see a coyote. Didn't get a shot at it. He was at the end of my open shooting lane which made it a 180 yard shot. I didn't shoot hoping he would come closer. Instead he went back into the brush and I never saw him again. I regret not taking the shot. I have shot deer at that range but a deer is a larger target than a coyote. I figure I probably had about a 50/50 chance of hitting him. With my .30-06 and a 150 grain Remington CoreLokt, a solid hit anywhere on his body or head would have killed him. The last coyote that I killed with it was hit just behind the rib cage. It nearly cut him in two.
I have been getting a lot of pictures of coyotes on my game cameras. Here are some of the ones I have gotten just in the last two days.
Went hunting again this afternoon. Saw two, a doe and probably her six month old fawn. Not ready to shoot a doe yet.
