KeokukCoboy,

Everyone takes away what they want from hunting. For many yrs I chose to give the coyotes & the Reds a free pass. To just observe & learn from them. I was a killer when I was a young hunter. I got right too it & did not care about learning from my quarry. Observing many hundreds of them in their natural setting. Has been much more rewarding. Versus, just going in for the kill. By observing, it no doubt has made me a better & more rounded hunter.

The year I joined I.S. is the year I became a predator hunter. Good or bad , pursuing coyotes is about the only hunting I do anymore. I havent shot a pheasant, quail or a deer since. These were hunts I use to enjoy and that are still there if I wanted to get back into hunting them. In my quest for coyotes I have learned many different ways to make me a better hunter overall. They are a tough animal to outwit day in day out. In Iowa,its even tougher but they can be made to come to a call if the hunter does his homework. I dont mind getting my butt whipped while calling a yote to the stand as long as I learn something from it. By far this has been my best year,its beginning to come together for me. I really love the challenge this sport offers and hope to continue till I can no more. O.P, again I wish you luck this weekend and for the many great hunts ahead of you...success

This is why I rarely go after dark calling or running hounds at night . I like to see what is going on and action vs reaction.

Thanks for sharing your experiences and insights. I've enjoyed reading them and actually learn something myself. I have been trying to get into predator calling, but have yet to have any luck. I'll keep trying and hopefully I learn something new each time out.
