Seeing as I can't shoot or do much of anything else for a bit, I took my youngest boy, Donny out to see if he could get a chicken thief[Gotta love the preventative problem thinking :wink: ]. Donny picked the call he would use and it was the first he ever received from guys on the net. He found a comfortable place to sit with a decent view[we got a lot of decent views].

After I had found a spot to sit he started

4 minutes later after way too much movement and noise :roll: a big ol' dog came in over to his right and the varmint never even see him :shock: . The old boy walked back in the bush and I did what I normally do[sat and chuckled], Donny blew his call for 2 of the shortest blows I've ever witnessed and the old boy came around the bush and I saw the lad in this position

Bang and then, "Where the [L] is he, Where did he go, Did I hit him, Let's go look and what are you laughing at". After the tears quit rolling down my cheeks and another bunch of really quiet questions I figured the chances of another one of the 6 zillion coyotes coming anywhere near us were just a mite slim :roll: , so we wondered over the 150yds to where the coyote had been standing. As we got to within 35yds a magpie flew up and it never ceases to amaze me at how quick they can find a new dead critter.

Had to take a couple hero pics

Loading was easy.

The dang thing had teeth that had eaten way to many grouse

I feel much better about the health of our poultry now that I have another coyote shooter in the family :D

WOW!!!! What an exciting story with great (& some fuzzy) pictures! Another Chip off the Ol' Block. You know I'd have saved the lower jaw for Doc and his knife crafts and the upper canines for my "projects".....but I know all you do is feed the magpies their portion. :roll: My congrats to Donny for his expertise in calling and shooting. Very good post.

what pride you must have felt.
Your son was knowledgeable, patient and crafty.
Great job on both your parts.
We do not have near the dogs here, but I am determined to get out and do some calling this winter.
