Hooter's a virgin no more.....well almost!

Recommended Posts

Well............Deadeye invited old Hooter over to the Hobbs NM area today for some dog action. The morning started off "very" foggy. First stand we could hear the coyotes howling in the distant fog but they wouldn't come to the call. :unsure:

Second stand we are driving in to the area and jump several coyotes. By now the fog has lifted and they are moving around. Make a stand and no luck. Driving into third location............jump "more" coyotes. Park the truck to see if we can call them back in. Slipping into the call location and up pops another dog on top of a sand dune about 75 yards out. I guess it can't figure out if Deadeye and I are cows or what. We have the wind in our favor and the dog stands there just long enough for a 55 grain Nolser BT to find it's mark. :D Oh boy..........Hooter kills his first coyote! I guess you call this a target of opportunity, but hey...........I'll take it anyway I can get it. :rolleyes:

Thanks Deadeye for a great day of dog chasing! :wub::wub::wub:

I got a picture.............but for the life of me I can't get the darn thing sized right!

Hey Hooter,

 

How was the fur? Did you skin him or strip the tail?

 

I was curious how they are doing out your way.....

The fur........according to Deadeye was in good condition. Since this was my first coyote, I don't know good from bad yet. :unsure: Deadeye ended up with the dog. Said something about taking it out to the shooting range and using it for target practice. :o
