Day 4

Morning Hunt

I hunted the calvary creek stand again this morning. It was actually pretty slow. There was some young bucks chasing and that 10.5 year old buck we nicknamed ODB (Old Dirty Bastard) was being a pain in the ass again this morning. He is just a tank! With perhaps the ugliest rack I've ever seen.

Old Dirty Bastard - we are guessing at least 10.5. He's been here for as long as I can remember. Nobody would ever shoot him.

 

I stayed in until 10 am. I usually like to sit longer during this time of year but it was slow and I wanted to kill coyotes.

My buddy Greg has never been on a predator hunt, and since we drove I brought my .204 custom build AR-15 and my calls. So we ate a quick lunch and headed to Kent's Canyon's. We got set up and called two dogs in within 15 seconds of turning on the call. I folded up the first mangy dog with a frontal shot. We called a few more spots and saw coyotes but they wouldn't come in. I guess my first shot really put them on guard. We'll go back out in the next couple of days.

Greg and I called this dog in within the first 15 seconds of hunting

 

Afternoon Hunt

For the afternoon I hunted a ground blind at Kent's South Pasture. This is a really neat area. No trees, just sandhills and sagebrush covered hills next to a big winter rye field. There are always giants in here and the trail cam pics show this year is as good as it gets.

This is the area we are hunting as seen on my HuntStand App.

 

It was warm and windy and I had very little action until shooting light was gone. A small 8 came in followed by a big mature 8 that was a shooter. It was just too dark to shoot, no video light either. So I didn't get any footage today at all.

I've got three days left. The deer are around, they are just not cooperating. It will happen, just have to be in the right place at the right time. and if it doesn't happen I may have to shoot ODB!
