Well went out Sunday a.m. .. it was perfect weather til my land owners dogs walked past my blind. Lightly shushed them away and then returned back to sitting. Figured it would be ok.. til the Hispanic neighbors giant horse sized dogs came over.. tried to shoo them away and they just barked and raised hell. So I got pissed and threw a stick at him.. and he decided to stand his ground. I was so pissed. So I decided to walk to my back stand and hunt a trail and try to throw some scent around. Not even a hour went by and by this time I was so pissed I was about done. Wind started coming in hard and every factor came in to play on why I should just go home. Well as I'm headed back to the house, I jumped a doe and her fawn.. she ran maybe 10 yards and stopped. So I ofcourse I froze.. and like I expected, she was making her way to the opening on the pipe line.. then boom. Something spooked her.. 20 yards out I had a freaking coyote in stalk mode ready to pounce. Needless to say, after a .308 bthp went through his lungs.. he is no longer with us. I guess that explain why my deer population has shrunk when his den was about 30 yards from my old feeder and stand. So I head back to the house and not 16 minutes goes by and the neighbors gun rattles the woods. Story of my life.

Hunting in magnolia would be better in a gated community.
