if shooting at coyotes that are coming to a call, try a bark sound to stop them. will only stop for very short time but enough to get a decent shot
Any coyote that is shot at and missed will be a lot smarter next time
At least your out and seeing them

I believe he's talking about grouse or woodcock since this is posted in the Grouse and Woodcock forum.

I'm also heading out shortly for an afternoon grouse hunt, (we've always called them partridge), while my Christmas ham bakes in the oven.

Merry Christmas back at ya John.

Actually, educating the birds makes then tougher to hunt as well so, good advice. :P

I saw two grouse. One on the fly and one that disappeared in a flash. Could have easily smoked a cottontail but didn't feel like messing with it. I also had the camera but it bolted just as I was ready to take a pic. All I heard was water splashing as it disappeared. I think the bald eagle I saw was also checking out the rabbit.

My property is so wet right now it looks more like spring thaw. Very noisy and difficult to get around in most areas due to the water and the recent windstorm that took down quite a few trees. But it was a perfect clear blue sky and mid 30's temperature. Very nice Christmas hunt.
