Re: Trail camera Fawn..
I'd been, while out coyote hunting, noticeing that while the water was still in the pond on hot dayy and evenings, that the deer where actually lying in the edge of it.
Went down and looked and coyote tracks all around in. (when the water was in it)
We had a bad sorm here a couple of weeks ago and the electric was off for right at, 3 days. Me with no generator was about to go "wackco" with the heat in the house at night, about 88* nearly most of the night.
So, I feel asleep one evening, (no electricity) I had to get OUT! I jumped on the 4 wheeler and thought I'd go back and cool down and watch the moon and just kick back a bit and try and get cooled down.
Where I was at, I could here generators running for miles around the hill top.
All I took with me was a few sodas, ciggs and my pistol.
At about 2am I was near this pond. (got somewhat of a 4wheeler trail near it)
Was bored and gave out a "howl" to see if any critters might be stirring. At what seemed to be 500+ yards away, I heard a deep-down bark.
Didnt pay much attention to it til about 5 mins later I heard a "growl" behind me!
Hit my flash light and there stood 6 coyotes 20 yards or so behind me.....and I can tell you this, they wasnt there to greet me, they was sneaking up ON me!
Only think I could think of was to grab my 9mm and yell out, "get out of here" and took a shot at the bigger one....I bit concerend and they didnt "disperse" as normal!
Fired one round and came back to the house to bet the proper "firepower" and hunted til day break.
I figured that this pond was a watering hole for the "beasts" and thought I might get a pic or two of them. 2 days with the camera and no "beast" pics. lol
