There is something special about sitting by a small, tranquil lake in the evening time, watching the ducks and egrets, surrounded by clouds of mosquitoes as you wait for the occasional beaver to swim by in range. I had been hunting at the opposite end of this small lake (few acres in size), but seemed to have wiped out the beaver that live on the opposite end. I would see other beaver crossing the lake some 300-400 yards distant, but could not reasonably hope to hit one of their tiny little moving heads at that distance. So I moved to the opposite side of the lake. Here is one example of the beaver action for the night.

I then moved on to the next property and camped out there for a while. I was able to see hogs (what I really enjoy hunting), but they remained about a half mile away on the neighbor's place. What made the night interesting was that the cattle would not stay settled. I figured it was my intrusion and maybe it was, but it was also apparently that one of their own had died a day or two early and was just about ambient temperature, down and bloated. They never moved far from this cow. Also nearby were two baby fawns. I would see their heads peek up above the grass every once in a while when the cattle would come close, but then the heads would disappear below grass level. These would be my first fawns to see for 2018 and I was a bit surprised they had been left so close to a dead cow (about 75 yards away). So I started blowing my rabbit distress call and sure enough those to 'fawns' popped right up and were COYOTES! They were small coyotes, but coyotes. I called to them for quite a while before one finally came to within reasonable range and in a safe direction of fire relative to the cattle...
