Coyotes


The last 2 nights we have been working late harvesting and planting cover crops. I have had 3 coyote shadows, 2 young of year and 1 female, waiting for the rabbits and moles, mice to run from the vibrations of the equipment. Then the coyotes pounce. Pretty neat to watch. The bad side is we are missing 2 calves from the pasture. So, after catching 10 coyotes here last year i suspect a new batch has set up shop. Also while fixing a water line yesterday in the cattle barn dad saw a small fox run out of the barn! So after catching 5 fox here last year i guess the fox population is up too.
I cannot wait for the season to open.

Update, kids and i were in cattle barn just now and a little red fox ran right by Reed, then out into yard. Stopped looked at us, took a crap then went into the pasture and started mousing!
All three kids saw the fox today and the coyotes the last 2 nights. Talk about excited kids!
Its so cool to live in the outdoors everyday. You know as trappers we are some the the most blessed people still around. We experience the outdoor weather, animal habits, nuances at 4 am 12 noon or 10 pm like no one else does. Everyone should be proud just to be alive and outside. Plus take a kid with you!

10 pm update. Coyotes are out again tonight with the tractor going and the storms rolling in it seemed the coyotes were finding more to eat. I wish i could get pictures to go from my phone to the site. Tonight the coyotes were not afraid of the tractor slowing down and speeding up they stayed in the circle of light more and didn't run away but just walked to move out of the way.

If he can't do it, I know i have no way to do it. After all he's the one that uses a computer every day. I can barely sign on and type something.
