Predator Hunt

This past Monday, one of my neighbors mentioned that he’d been hearing coyotes on the north end of his place and asked me if I would see if I could “eliminate” the threat. So, early yesterday evening, taking my camera and .17 HMR, I set up a “hide” near a water trough that can be seen in the picture.

Beginning a series of calls, nothing came in, but I did have a strange feeling that something was watching me.


Sure enough, as I eased around, there she was, looking right at me. As I took this picture, she was trying to figure out why this thing that looked like a pile of leaves was making those funny noises.

No coyotes yesterday, but I’ll keep trying.
