    Anybody else ever do this? I never pass up coyotes while deer hunting, and never pass up bobcats if they're in season. I figure heck, I'm hunting..... might as well enjoy myself. Besides, the darn coyotes usually screw up my deer hunt anyway. Might as well whack em. This deer season, I got zero deer with my rifle (got one with my blackpowder) but 3 coyotes & one bobcat. It was a great deer season.:wink:

    I did shoot the mangiest coyote anyone's ever seen. I did him a great favor. That poor thing only had hair left around his mane. He looked like a scrawny lion.

    I only saw a coyote 1 time while I was deer hunting. I would have shot it, but it came out out from behind me and by the time I had my gun up it was gone.

    I always leave my options open as a multi species hunter. If I'm deer hunting and coyotes come by I start hunting coyotes. I killed on the 4th day of our gun season this year. My wife had been wanting me to bring one in and have it mounted so I did . She is now wanting me to get a bobcat. I have never seen a bobcat while deer hunting. So I guess after deer season is over I will start hunting for a cat till season is over in Feb.

    Regardless of what i'm after, i don't pass many shots at a coyote.
