I'm exciting to get into it a little more this year.  Bought a bunch of gear last fall (decoy, headlamps, scope-mount lights, electronic caller).  Last year i was using my 30-06, but a few months ago i won a .223 in a gun raffle, and i've added a bipod and one of the scope-mount lights to that.  Can't wait to try it out soon.

Rule no. 1 of predator hunting: Always have your shotgun with #4 buck ready, especially when you hit the mouse squeaker just to see if anybody is right around close.

Sorry for being a bit skeptic,but I see all that great technology and I wonder if the hunter also gets better. Could you reach the same amazing results with an old but very precise carbine with a 7.62 bullet at 400 yards? This modern -sometimes- laser guided equipment is great,but isn't the hunting sport more about learning about the prey and honing the senses of the hunter, than it is about making that technology guided shot?

Had two coyotes push 11 deer to me yesterday. First time in my life I liked a coyote! If I could have gotten a good shot at either coyote, I would have taken a coyote over another deer! The one was blonde and the other was the normal gray color.

not nearly so simple, wish it was.  a 7.62 would blow one up, no reason for that, would be like shooting a deer with a bazooka.  Coyotes are very smart, results of calling mirror those of musky fishing, not sunfish off your dock.

Calling coyote will teach you things about hunting that deer will never teach you and that technology will never allow you to bypass.

This is kinda saying it's not sportsman like to fish with a fishfinder.
Shouldn't the fisherman just know where the fish are and hone their skills not using speed/temp probe either

Be it far from me to call this "not sportsman like", but I do understand what you say. Your suggestion would surely separate the boys from the men.

Put a carcass out last week and it’s been getting hammered. Put the motion detector out today and the .204 is ready to bark. Game on. IMG_0864.JPGIMG_0865.JPG
