    I always have my call a good 75 yards from my ambush spot. He didnt even need a hunter orange cap with that do going on.

    A few minutes before sunset…in a mountainous terrain…heavily wooded…maybe down in a holler…or on an east facing slope. Some stars may already be visible.

    But yes, you have to ID your target.

    On the bright side, it was probably a new state record!

    Sadly this kinda shit happens way too often and gives anti-Gun/Anti-hunting advocates ammunition for their argument.

    On the other hand…If it was a 50 year old hot babe I could understand why a MILF would be mistaken for a coyote.

    How many hunting “accidents” are the result of the deceased sticking their dick someplace it didn’t belong?

    My dad was always a deer hunter. Being color-blind he was particularly careful. One year we were out hunting and he told of seeing a spot of brown that looked like a deer among some evergreen trees.In the interests of safety he wanted a better look, so he spent the next half hour sneaking up on…an evergreen tree. :Dad, they’re not good eating!”

    Happened around Here; Bubba put out the Caller in his Backyard, aimed towards the Woods. Within 5 Minutes, he was Taking Fire from the Flank and the Coyotes ran for Cover. I could Hear him Screaming at the other dude to Stop.
