Default First coyote of 2009

Bobcat and I went out and started 2009 off right.

We went to an area that Bobcat had scouted, but never hunted. When we got there we quickly noticed that it had recently been logged nearby. I wanted to take a look ďover the hillĒ and found a downhill slope that was logged with reprod along the right side.
The wind was light from our left to our right and Bobcat set up downhill about 50 yards from me. He had the Foxpro about 25 yards away on his right side. I couldnít see Bobcat, but wanted him closer to the call since he was shooting his shotgun. I hunkered down behind a fallen log and didnít really have a great field of view.
I ran a hi-pitched cottontail sound for almost a minute, but didnít like it and I switched to DSG. After about another minute I tried to reposition a bit so I could see Bobcat. What I saw was the shotgun come up and go BOOM! I quickly looked to the left and saw the coyote just as the shotgun went off again. BOOM! Spinning yote, right in the mud puddle. The dog came to 25 yards when Bobcat raised to shoot and it died only a few yards away.

It was a small male with a ratty hide. I drug it out of the puddle and Bobcat went for the camera. It was the only dog of the day.
