Today, I was reminded why I hunt predators.
As soon as my buddy Justin hit the caller, a doe whipped her head up from her bed 50 yards in front of me on the other side of the river. Thirty seconds in, as she’s analyzing the sound, she turns to look behind her.
Out of nowhere, a coyote leaps into the air and pounces on top of her. It latched onto the back of her neck and she stood and started to buck and kick. The coyote lost its hold and the doe ran into the middle of the river. The coyote chased her and stood on the bank yipping at her, where he got a 50-grain surprise from me.
Hands down one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen while hunting. Only wish I could’ve caught it on video, as it was so surreal to see, and doubt I’ll ever see anything like it again.
We didn’t get any bobcats won again. But we didn’t get skunked, and we saved a few deer and calves in the process.–Adam
