The hunt is in the books 3 coyotes dead and 1 cat.
Several shot and not recovered almost everyone called in coyotes! Securpro,Hammer and myself killed coyotes!
They were all called in and killed on sat! Rich shot a nice cat sat also, I missed one coyote and forgot to load my gun on a 20' coyote! That click is the loudest sound in the woods just ask Linemansteve he did it the next day also LOL. All in all it was a great time.
We meet some new friends and made awsome memory's. Doug brought his little terror he's a machine. Jeremy brought his squirrel dogs and killed several.
Thanks to all who made this happen and Securepro and Slag for the great meal.
Special thanks to those who donated prizes especially those who have never even made it to the hunt! Without your support it wouldn't be as big a success.
Thanks Pat for all you do and Ed and Rich for keeping it alive.
Jim you were missed greatly everyone talked about you and hoped you get better for next yr.

I will let everyone else tell there story's! Stay tunned pic will be coming in soon.

Thanks for the kind words, Dan.  I thought about you guys this past week.  Sounds like you guys had a great time!!  This coyotes look healthy (before you guys busted them)!!

Had a great time...though my 250 and I have a date at the range this week. I called in three and missed two of them (no shot taken on the third). Not sure what's going on there, but I WILL get to the bottom of it. Can't wait until next year :yoyo:

I shot a cat on Thursday afternoon.  Shotgunned it off a log (witnessed by Weedwalker) but when we went looking for it.....it was GONE! Lost in the thick stuff somewhere. Apparently not enough shot hit it to seal the deal. 

I left Friday due to a good friend's father dying and I needed to get back home. 

I'm already looking forward to next year.   Congrats to all who attended.  I think everyone had a good time.

The family and I had a great time as usual at LBL,  :highclap: We didn't get there till late Friday but had a great time Saturday. 7 minutes into the first set we call in one of the fastest coyotes ever seen, he came full throttle down the hill in front of us all the way to the call/decoy did a 180 without missing a step and right back up the hill :shrug: I didn't even get him in the scope long enough to even consider a shot :rolleye: I guess hitting a 40mph coyote in the woods is not my forte... He did circle around us and popped up in front of Jessica for a split second just to show off..

9 minutes into the second set that big girl hanging from the tree crossed the field of death about 75 yards out.. :yoyo:

Love hearing the hunt stories, and wanted to attend the LBL hunt this year but work got in the way.  I live just a few miles from the LBL, and hunt there often.   I'm coming next year if you fella's can put up with someone who is just as coyote crazy as you fellow fanatics are.  Lol.    Conrats to all on a great hunt.

Always enjoy the stories and the photos from LBL.  Sounds like it was a good year for cats.

It sure was nice getting to see you all again. I had a great time. Called in 4 coyotes and a bobcat. 1st coyote stopped about 50 yards out, so I lip squeeked. Apparently he's heard that before and was going to run off so I took a hail mary shot with the shotgun. I knocked his front legs out from under him but he got up and ran off. Couldn't find it. 2nd one circled me too far out for a shot and busted me. 3rd one, somebody with the initials of CCP flat out missed it at 40 yards. :shrug: 4th one, same unnamed person with the initials of CCP was jerking on his trigger with the safety on while the coyote ran away. :confused: The bobcat, Semp knocked it off a log but we couldn't find it.
I didn't get to kill any, but just getting to be there with good friends is what it's all about to me anyway. I finally got to meet Ronnie (centerfire223) and see all the rest of you. Slags dinner was good as always. And we had good weather for most of the week. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.

Another great year at the annual LBL hunt. Many thanks to all who attended and contributed to the meal and prize drawing Saturday evening. It was good seeing everyone again and getting to meet Ronnie (centerfire_223) and his son, Drew.

I had a new experience this year; squirrel hunting with Jeremy and his dogs on Thursday. If you ever get the opportunity to hunt squirrels with dogs I highly recommend you take it. It is great fun and a lot of exercise.

Well I guess I have finally recovered enough to tell my side of the LBL story. First off I want to say thanks to Pat, Tony and Casey for allowing Drew and myself to stay with them at their cabin. It was great finally putting faces to names of people that I have talked with for years on here. One thing I will have to say about these three, is they know how to eat. Some great cooking went on, and I got my first taste of smoked bologna. Now that is some good stuff.

Another thanks go out to Slag for an awesome stew, the best I have ever eaten. By the way Slag I can't find the recipe on here, could you post that again.

Man how time fly's, it didn't seem like it had been 8 years since I was last at the LBL hunt. Got to see a few old friends Richard (CCP) Joel (Weedwalker) and Semp. Also got to make a whole lot of new ones or at least I hope I did. They are certainly friends in my book. Couldn't find a better group of people to hunt, hang out and shoot the bull with.

Now for my LBL 2016 hunt, I can say the LBL had my number this year. Can't think of a year out of the 5 that I have been out there that I didn't call up a coyote until this year. My son and I got out there on Thursday night a little after dark. We saw two coyotes on our way there, so I had some big expectations for the next day. On our way out we stopped to get fuel, so we picked up a Subway sandwich while we were there. Well that was a bad move, not on my part but on Drew's. I told him he should have gotten the club but no he had to have the cold cuts. Which may have not been that cold. Cause before we ever got to the campground he was complaining about his stomach hurting. On our way walking into our first stand the next morning, he was chumming up a bait pile in the woods. So only 2 stands that morning with him sick. Then it was off to Dollar General for some pepto. I dropped him off at the cabin where he went unconscious for about 5 hours. I went out and made 3 more stands with nothing to show for it. Though I did find some fresh sign. Later that evening, Drew and I tried it again but he was still weak and we called it quits before dark.

That night we went out and done a little howling but I think we were a little early. Never got an answer to some of the sexiest howls I have ever heard. Even if I did make them myself. So the next morning we headed back into the place where I seen the fresh sign. Saw where a coyote had walked in my tire tracks from the night before. So I new we were hunting a good place. Every stand I expected to have a coyote come charging the call but every stand I got disappointed. We did manage to get a coyote to answer back to some of those howls but he never showed himself. After a hard day of calling, 18 stands to be exact, it was time to admit the LBL had my number this year. But I will have to say I had the best time of my life, got to spend time with my son doing something I love to do. Truly a weekend I will forever remember.

We both had a blast and Drew said even if I didn't make it next year, which I am planning on not doing, he was coming with or without me. So watch out LBL, I'll have your number in 2017. Look forward to seeing everyone again next year. Once again it was a pleasure seeing everyone and meeting all the people I had not met.

Jim! Glenn told us why you hadn't been down and said he couldn't understand why you didn't just trade that ford in at the local GM dealer.

They said my Ford was worth two or three chibbeys and the boss wouldnt let them cut the deal so I drove away. I guess his logic was that if there was a Ford setting on his lot the Chevrolets would get over looked and rot away. I mean you know...best selling truck for 39 years so far :eyebrow:
