    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Hey guys,</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;&nbsp; Here is a story for you. Yesterday morning a buddy and myself ventured out in chase of that early spring gobbler.&nbsp; The morning started out great birds gobbling on the roost going crazy.&nbsp;We had them ringing the morning air.&nbsp;Then&nbsp;they pitched out of roost and the woods grew silent.&nbsp;After about 10 to 20 min. of giving an occasional yelp or cluck. We&nbsp;sat to see if we&nbsp;would possibly get a feeding tom to stroll by. I heard&nbsp;something coming up be&nbsp;me it was getting very close like 10 to 5 feet close.&nbsp;My buddy was&nbsp;sitting a little in front of me about 5 feet. I&nbsp;whispered to him to slowly turn and see what came in. I was waiting&nbsp;for him to give me the look&nbsp;that says TURKEY!!! He mouths to me COYOTE. I asked him again to confirm at this time&nbsp;it is VERY CLOSE. He again&nbsp;mouths COYOTE with wide eyeballs. The movement&nbsp;heads to my right. I turn and&nbsp;see it. point and pull the trigger. It went down. This is&nbsp;only the second coyote that I have seen&nbsp;in the wild. My buddy was dieing with laughter. He later tells me that it could have given me a&nbsp;kiss on the ear.&nbsp;A little sarcasm of course.&nbsp;It's hide&nbsp;is&nbsp;not in that bad of shape considering the time of year. I am going to have it tanned.&nbsp;Maybe to make a possibles bag out of it.&nbsp; I have to do something with it, it may be the only chance that I will have to take a coyote. I am an avid ducker and I may have just helped in other&nbsp;ways also. &nbsp;</P>

    <P>Had the same thing happen last year turkey hunting with my partner John.&nbsp; We were back to back on a big tree, me calling when all of a sudden he whispers that he is going to "kill this coyote".&nbsp; I leaned around the tree just in time to see him smoke one on the dead run about to attack our decoys!&nbsp; This past fall I was meeting another friend of ours at the marsh.&nbsp; I was about 100 yards from our meeting point when his gun roared.&nbsp; He shot a coyote that was stalking along the edge of the marsh moving away from me...</P>
