I was turkey hunting yesterday morning in a draw. From across it to the right in this pic I saw her headed to my left.



Since I had the decoys out, I thought... hey, I'll make an excited alarm call and see how it reacts to the decoys. Well, it worked, but she didn't go towards the decoys. She came towards me. I was thinking once she got in a clearing that if I had a clean shot I would take it. When she got there she turned right towards me, looking right at me, and kept coming. It switched from offense to defense pretty quick. Once she got about 4-5 yards from me and closing I decided that was close enough.

Did her a favor. As bad as I hate coyotes, I don't want any animal to suffer. Good job.

Coyote? I guess you didn't read the post heading. That, my friend, is a bonafide chupacabre.

Good job on the Chupa!

Just a word of warning...you really don't want to handle these if at all possible. The condition is caused by the sarcoptic mite (Sarcoptes scabiei). They were not indigenous to North America and were introduced intentionally to kill off wolves and coyotes. This initially had a pretty good impact on the population, but as you might expect, there were survivors and animals more resistant to the mite that passed on their genes. Now, it is just a horrific menace, still can be fatal, but as we know, the coyote population is doing fine. The wolf population also recovered and was subsequently lowered by other meants.

The reason you don't want to handle these is because the mite can transfer to you and/or your clothing. It can result in a condition called 'scabies' in humans and can transfer to your furry pets.

^^^ I appreciate the warning, I figured that I shouldn't handle it. I laid out a rope next to it, used a couple of sticks to roll it onto the rope, tied it up, dragged to the bone yard, and cut the rope. sick

I went to see a client a few years ago and she was sitting on her porch. She told me that her house was infested with scabies and we should not go in there. I assumed she meant fleas but now that I know what this is, Iím glad I didnít go in there.
