This is what it looks like when preparation and hard work come together. We hunted our asses off and made 28 stands in 2 days. @craigsteeleaz called us 22 total coyotes over those stands. We had a triple come in and shot 2 of them, then another triple came in and we shot one. Two doubles came in today and we only managed to get one each of those. That said we didn’t miss one first-shot on a called in coyote the whole trip. 16 killed with rifle and I shot 1 with a shotgun. You can’t make up a better hunt. Thank you Craig and @predator_exclusives for showing us a time that we will likely never top. I will get high res photos and video up soon, just wanted to share this with you because I am so stoked. 🤙🏼#PredatorExclusives#HuntForMore#PredatorHunting#CoyoteHunting#Hunt_AZ
When out calling coyotes for a half a day with some friends. They were the shooters, I was operating the call / spotter / 3rd shooter ha! Anyways, 1st Stand of the day, 3 minutes into the call. Called in a yote heading to my shooter on my left, but that yote must've seen something he didn't like and disappeared. 2nd Stand, the wind wasn't in our favor, but decided to call it anyway, while walking up to a Stand, we walked up on a yote sleeping, he lifted his head, caught our wind and ran like a bat out of Hell, we were wolfing at him to stop or at least slow down to look back, nada. 3rd and 5th Stand, nothing. 4th Stand, 20 minutes into the call, we called in a smart yote, he appeared dead center 100 or so yards out behind some rocks, then disappeared behind the hill, and reappeared way downwind for a sec, got our scent, and left. It was just one of those days... 🤣 But all in all, it was a good half day out calling yotes with friends. With the photoshoot afterwards... Lmao!! 🤣 #CoyoteHunting#CoyoteCalling#PredatorHunting#PredatorManagement#BountyHunters#Foxpro#MadeForKilling#AR15#VORTEX#HORNADY#VMAX#NavajoNation#Utah#DeathDealerInc ♠️
This is for all the predator hunters who get hit with hate filled comments regarding a necessary endeavor, and it seems female hunters get hit with more of it at times. The logic and science behind predator management makes sense. Populations must be balanced for a healthy ecosystem. So here's a post from @brittanykichton - "I’m sure I’ll get lambasted for this, but people don’t understand the importance of predator control where we live. I know this isn’t the case everywhere, but we have an incredibly high population of predators here in proportion to prey animals and they are decimating our ungulate populations. They’ve already destroyed the caribou population and are doing the same to the deer, moose and elk in our area. Before finding this wolf, we came across TWO kills they had made in less than 24 hours-one deer and one moose and unfortunately that isn’t even one of the bigger packs in the area.. On average, they will make at least one kill every 2 days, and this time of year with the deep snow, the deer, moose and elk don’t stand much of a chance.
People also don’t realize that wolves also hunt for fun. They’re a predator, so if they see movement their instinct kicks in and they give chase, even if they aren’t necessarily hungry. We’ve personally witnessed this many times; the wolves make a kill, eat a little, and then leave the rest behind to move on to the next quarry.
So while it may be controversial for some, this is why predator control is absolutely crucial where we live. Our herd populations just can’t handle that kind of a strain right now. We don’t want to wipe the wolves out, but we do have to keep their numbers in check a little before the moose, elk and deer have the same sad end as the caribou. With a little predator management, we’ve seen an increase in the numbers and quality of our ungulate population. While they’re still struggling, at least they have a fighting chance now!" .
Received my coyote howler from @old_oak_outdoors . I’m really impressed with the quality and sound. It has a jack rabbit type tone that’s high pitched and raspy. Made from composite materials so this thing is made to last. I’ve been playing around with it , without the mouth piece and if you bite down on the reed in a certain spot you can get pup distress out of it. Thinking about adding an o ring to the reed to be able to jump from jackrabbit distress to pup distress in a matter of seconds. Can’t wait to take this call out!! #oldoakoutdoors#hunting#predatorhunting#predatorcalling#predatorcalls#getoutside
The bitter sweet side of hunting - having to kill beautiful animals. This is the quandary Australian hunters have, all our game species are introduced and they are destructive to our natural ecosystem. So it’s with sadness that this life must be taken to save 1000s of others. #huntingaustralia#predatorhunting
