Spent three hours in the stand last night and saw absolutely nothing not sure if my scent was getting thrown around or it was just one of those nights. Finally I broke down and started doing what I do best spot and stalk the first pasture I hit I spotted eleven doe's in one corner wtf, but I also spotted something small on the opposite side and the body language told me right off the bat it was a coyote! Not sure if some of you guys remember my last post about the coyote blowing my hunt well this was that coyote she was trying to howl back at some other yotes in the distance but this yotes howl and yelp is rough almost like she lost her voice that's how I knew it was her. I missed her once already this week, she worked her way to a dirt pile and laid down on top of it I had a good cross wind and couldn't tell if she was actually laying there or trying to take a nap. I was able to get right around 150yds and she still wasn't moving which told me this damn yote is out cold.... I laid there for a while and changed thermal to black hot took a deep breath and took the shot but to my disappointment I was low about three inches and she ran off. I thought I hit her because she didn't really dart off and the mound look liked it was covered in blood but it ended up being the bullet and the heat it generated. I checked the area and could not find her I sat on the dirt pile looking around and then I started walking back and you guys won't believe what she did next she came back out and smelled my track on the mound and ran back to the tree line she popped her head back out again and I drilled her on the third shot at 119 yards this time I was on white hot.... She had the mange and it probably had her weak and making bad decisions looks like she made her last one. After I retrieved the coyote I checked southern part of the property and immediately spotted some pigs eleven to be exact. The sounder heard the quad and started to move the pack off the property I shut the quad off and put a pursuit angle on them and got within range before the left the property, I grabbed the nearest t-post and set the rifle on my forearm I waited for that sounder to stop and I drilled her at 129 yards the group ran off but not far I hit a second one but the thermal for some reason shut off by the time I got it back on I couldn't tell where it went but it didn't go down. I found some more hogs later through the night but they where on the wrong side of the fence and all I could do is watch... mad

Sorry for the long read, I'm giving them a break for a few days I have to get my self back on schedule for work. crying
