    Cool pic, beautiful yote! I'm guessing it's not an Alaskan yote, judging by what appears to be corn stubble in the background. Right or wrong?

    Awesome pic, you tell that boy he impressed us all! I got a boy close to that age, I know how awesome it is to see them get into it like that and take charge. It brings a tear of joy to a proud Dads eye. Congratulations.My son saw that pic and told me he wants our next critter to be a coyote, so "he can do like that boy did"

    The look on your son's face is simply priceless. That could be on the cover of a magazine I tell you, simply a great photo.

    thank you for all the positive feed back & replies, i've shown this pic around here & got mixed/negative reviews from people who i'll call liberals, such as that's awful your son is to young to know what killing is all about & what are you thinking you can clearly see the trap on that poor coyotes foot & by the look on his face you can tell he is suffering, bla bla bla well i proudly defended that pic of my son & stated that i will continue to expose him to the outdoor sport & herritage of hunting,fishing & trapping. Hoyt you are correct this is not an alaskan yote but an Illinois/midwestern yote, i'm tanning it so my son can display it on his bedroom wall, he's very proud of it & shows the pic to his teachers & friends or anyone that will look at it then he tells the story, it's awsome to see the desire & fire when he tells it. i've been to alaska multiple times & knew after my 1st trip that i wanted to call this place home, i'm planning to relocate there pending my job search but being a single parent will only increase the difficulty but somehow we'll manage. Again thank you for the positive feedback & replies & may you all have sucess & memorable time in the bush with your loved ones.

    Keep up the good work with you son predatorhuntr, you're leading him down the right path and I'm sure you know it. I don't think you could stop him from wanting to get out doors and hunt & trap now if you wanted.

    Might Pass on to your boy, Coyote Killers are Very Welcome in Alaska,

    We could use more like you guys, moving on up,

    PS we can see that "Desire and Fire" in his eyes in that pic, glad he's proud of it,
    even if some don't understand what those critters, especially a big one like that do to the balance of the wilds

    "to know what killing is all about,"..... is exactly what you are teaching, and accurately I might add

    predhunter,

    Just curious, are you and son shooting them in the head?

    Congrats to you both on your success.

    no bushrat we shoot them in the heart/lungs this particular coyote died in less than 5 seconds, we dispatch them this way to prevent the mess associated with head shots, shot through the heart/lungs they tend to bleed out inside & die rather quickly. coyotes & skunks are the only thing i shoot to dispatch everything else thats caught alive gets the snare pole/chest stomp to prevent haveing to sew up bullet holes.
