What a week we had

January 18, 2015

After a surprisingly uneventfull week end, considering the perfect conditions, our week started with a bang.  Actually two of them.

 

On Monday morning Dédé started the ball by shooting a coyote.  He was hunting with Francis and Fred and they called in the dog on their second stand of the day.  I could tell you all about it but the video does a better job so here it is:

 

For my part, I was hunting alone a few klick from them and at the time Dédé

 pulled the trigger, I was in the middle of my longest coyote hunt ever. A 2 1/2 hour game of hide and seek that ended with a 439 yds shot.  My longest shot ever on a coyote.  A 33 lbs female with an amazing color and pelt.   I'll probably get a rug made out of her.

The hunt lasted so long that the ATN Camera ran out of batteries so I don't have the kill shot on film but i have a bunch of footage that will be turned into a NHB Moment that will go online this week.  For now, here's a picture of the coyote.

On wednesday it was Dom's turn with a variety pack. 1 fox and 1 coyote in the same afternoon.  I've seen the first cut of his fox video and it is great, we'll have it out shortly, we're just putting the finishing touch on a few details.  Here are the photos in the meantime.

 

And finally on Thursday I get a call, it's Francis.  Guess how far? he asks...

-850 I guess ( I have learned not to underestimate him).

-657 he answers back and starts laughing.

I think he likes the 26 Nosler

Here's the video of that hunt, which was Fred's first time behind the camera.  He did a great job.  Finding a coyote, at 600 yds, in the small 3 inch screen on our cameras is hard work, in the blinding sun, It become near imposible, so I kept laughing while listening to the video.... because I've been in that situation.

This was a big week for us, I hope your enjoying the videos.
