Went out to my coyote honey hole this morning. The snow hiking in was terrible. Every step was crunchy and every other step I fell into over my knees. I was about to my favorite calling locations when a pack of something started yipping and howling about a 1/2 mile from me. I decided to give it a try and called for about 10 minutes and didn't see a thing coming towards me. I figured it was probably a pack of wolves and they already had full bellies. I got up and started walking and about 500 yards downhill are 5 coyotes staring at me. I dropped down and let a couple shots fly but didn't connect. Even after I shot they weren't very nervous and just walked back into the brush. When I walked down to look for blood, it was apparent that they were coming to me and I should have called for a few more minutes. I'll let them rest for a week and go after them again after Christmas.
