    I haven’t had a chance lately. It used to be something I did during the off season intil the kid showed up.

    Ditto what @No_Regerts said. Coyote hunting was easily one of my favorite type of hunting. Kiddos, business matters, other work, etc., has pretty much curtailed that though for now.

    I’d love to shoot a few dogs. Need a partner to show me the ropes.

    Yeah, and I decided my brother likes to drink too much to be a viable hunting partner.

    To clarify about my brother, I mean too frequently and in excess.

    I really should take the hundreds of dollars in calls and decoys out to put them to actual use besides sitting in an ammo can.

    Problem is you have to get a license and I don't want to pay the Nanny State anything.

    My call uses MP3 audio, can reach out to 300 yards + and can turn a decoy on and off as needed. Yeah.. I really should use it.

    Unfortunately, there are tons of them around my place. I don't get much in the way of sleep this time of year from having to be up all night keeping the coyotes away from the livestock. I just came back in to soak up some warm air and coffee and will head back out when my bones stop rattling...

    When you get back in the saddle, can I tag along some time and learn the ropes? (Schedules permitting...)

    I'm right about there. Time is tough, but I could make it if I had any clue of what I was doing.
