Spent the last week out chasing Whitetails and this is all I came up with. hammer Saw lots of deer and even a few pretty good ones but not the one I was after.

About 5:30PM yesterday afternoon my deer started looking to the south west so I figured some cows were coming since I had seen them every single hunt for the last week. I was surprised when I saw this Yote come bouncing through the cactus and Cedars but didn't think I had a prayer of getting a shot off before he would be gone. I tried anyway and leveled the cross hairs in about a 1' square opening between a Cedar and Mesquite and told myself when I see a shoulder I am going to touch off a round from the 6.8. About the time I clicked off the safety I saw him and sent a Accubond his way. I just about busted out laughing when he folded in his tracks because all the odds were stacked against me ever getting a shot off much less hitting him. Total elapsed time from when I first saw him till when I was able to grab the rifle and find a shooting lane and touch off a round was maybe 6 seconds. After the shot the casing started bouncing around in the stand like a ping pong ball and to my surprise all of my deer were still standing around wondering what the heck just happened and then they went back to feeding so I had to wait till dark to go retrieve him.

Really didn't want to touch him but I knew I couldn't leave him there where I hunt so I snapped a few pics and got rid of him elsewhere.

You better wash up good after touching him. Your hair might start falling out.
Good shot

We left early this morning around 7:30 and it was a light rain for about 30 minutes. Enough to keep the dust down but not enough to cause mud.

Good shot.

One thing you want to remember is lip squeak. Killed lots of yotes doing this when they are around and I don't have a call. A lot of times they will trot right on in.
