    Here is a pic of a coyote that came running after a dying rabit sound made by my crass creek electronic call. She came out of a thicket less than 10 yards away running by the downed fence. She was met by my 870 and a 3in shell with 00 buck. It didn't even move after being shot, it just toppled over and went sideways. I may have pics of the beutiful area I hunt if they develop, including a pic of it laying where she was shot. The worst part was dragging it 100 yards uphill to the car through waist and chest high grass. I bagged it and weighed it to be 41lbs on my Rapala scale. I am going out again soon to find the pack leader. TWRA trapped on last year that they guessed as 65lbs, and the people around there report to see some big ones. There is a dense pack that kills domestic animals and calves and that is why we are working to thin them out.

    We had some trouble with coyote's and coydogs when I lived in Texas, but I haven't seen nor heard one here in NC. Not saying their not here, just that I haven't seen one.

    41#'s is a big dog, we have a ton of yotes here and a lot of bobcats too, so when your calling you sometimes get a bonus cat, 2 years ago my son and I both killed a bobcat with our bows while deer hunting, about 2 weeks apart, that was cool.
