Back to LBL 2014 pics
« on: March 01, 2014, 09:16:44 PM »
Jon, and I and another hunter Scott went back to LBL February 24 - 28, 2014 for some coyote hunting hoping for some better weather.  We arrived late Monday evening and stayed in A-24.  We hunted hard on Tuesday the 25 and heard some coyotes and saw plenty of sign but did not see a coyote.  Here I am on one of our stands . . .

On Wednesday morning on our first stand Jon called in a coyote.  He saw it coming down the far hillside at about 100 yards, but since he had his shotgun it was too far for a shot.  Scott was out to Jon's left about 50 yards and I was to his right about the same distance.  The coyote came in to Jon's left downwind and Scot shot him at about 35 yards with his .243.  Here is were Scot was set up.  You can see the dead coyote out in front of him.   . . .

This was Scott's first coyote and he was really excited!  Fur down!  WTG and good shooting Scott.

Over all Jon called in 4 coyotes and they all came in to Scott's setup.  One smelled us and turned tail without him getting a shot.  Another came in from toward the lake and he heard and saw it coming, but he had set up too far back from the holler and the coyote went down out of his sight before he could shoot.  When it came back up it was not where he expected it and it took off without him getting a shot?  Another one came in near the truck , but we quit the stand too soon and Jon saw it take off as we headed back to the truck?  They are tough!!  Scott actually saw two more in a field across a creek from where we were, but we couldn't get them to come in?

Here are a few more pictures . . .

Jon and Scott.

We hunted hard til Friday afternoon and finally headed back to WV Friday at about noon.  We had really good weather and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!  The mornings were cool and in the 20 s then it warmed up in the afternoons to the mid 30s.  Just wish we would have had this weather the first of the month so the rest of you could have enjoyed it with us. 

The only coyote I saw was the one Scott shot???  But, that's OK, it was great to see him get his first!!

Looking forward to next year!!

Froggie, overall I'd say you all had a good trip.  Glad to see him get his first as he'll be hooked for good now. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
