    Hey there. so far on the year I have been blessed to take down a great buck and two coyotes. I managed to get this one on film (kinda) :). I have an extreme passion for the outdoors, hunting, etc. and over the past two years I have started to get in to filming my hunts. I am always by myself and I am the type that hunts first and films second.

    I consider myself a good hunter but a very amateur filmer/editor. I wish I knew how to do it better, but at least the majority of the hunt is captured and I am able to relive it in the future.

    Hope you all enjoy and I welcome and feedback you all have.

    Not to discourage anyone because I love hunting and trapping them as well, but keep in mind that coyotes have adaptive breeding and by removing some, the population can actually grow rather than decline. They are incredible animals

    Mercy that is a gross looking coyote. They really need to go if that is what they look like.

    That is interesting okcaveman. I have never heard of that. They are so incredibly thick on the properties that I hunt this year. I have never seen so many on camera!

    This is new info to me that I learned and I makes sense. My trapline has a linear distance of only 1.5 miles, and in the last 3 years I have taken 35, 37, and 41 coyote. The year I got 35 a guy got 17 just 1/4 mile from me. It seems the more we catch the more there are, and were hammering them in relatively small pieces of property.

    That is really interesting! It seems like all of the properties I hunt are up in population. I know they swing a little bit as the rabbit and other small game's population swings. I just figured we were in an upswing right now.

    very interesting info. on my 20 acre farm I have taken 10 this year, both day and night hunts. I will sit on my roof and pop them when they cross my pastures. it is nice I can have a cold adult beverage and still hunt.
