Default The Old Vetern- Coyote

Sorry about the misspelled Veteran. Stupid fingers.

I posted two other coyote shots in another thread that were taken at some distance. I was fortunate enough to get some shots of this wily ol' Coyote as he/she was walking down the road. I was only about 75-100 yards when I took these.

That typical coyote alert look in the last shot appears as though it is looking for a sound.
Were you using a call to attract the coyote.

I would love to get an opportunity like this. Hunted them for many years with a rifle and now it's camera only.

Nice shots.

nice set. not often you are able to get this close to coyote without a blind and/or call. at least not where i grew up you couldn't.

Thank you both. The only blind I used was just "blind luck" and being in the right place at the right time. I have seen more coyotes at the refuge this year than years past, which I'm told is a good thing for the refuge. I didn't use a call. I think the sound of my tires on the gravel road or just the fact that I was there peaked enough interest for a look. The coyote didn't seem the least bit concerned by my presence. He just took a quick look and then headed off into the brush.

Thanks for your comments, they are always appreciated,
Steve

Great photos - our coyotes are always too fast for my slow fingers and slow brain! You certainly captured the personality, as well as wonderful use of light to get so much detail!
