    California Predators

    Got my first dog for the year with a coyote challenge....also called in a few with a distressed cottontail. Had a great time we called in 15 coyotes in one nights time and managed to only take 3. Yea u guessed it, lots of missing going on.....lol. On one stand we had 5 coyotes running in one after the other!! We could have shot more if there was two shooters, but how we worked it was one held the light while the other shot.

    My buddy and I went out again for a few hours and managed to call two bobcats and a coyote. The second bobcat spotted us at about 250 yards and got away. We had a blast! We used the Jack Rabbit and baby Jack in distress calls. I used a Remington Model 660 in 222 Rem (triple deuce) to take the coyote. My buddy used his TC in 223 Rem to take the cat.

    Yea its lots of fun too. I use red and green led flash lights with 300-400 lumins. You can spot their eyes over 300 yards away! Real cool watching a set of red eyes coming at you at a fast walk or run. We can usually identify the animal within 150 yards with a red led and about 200 yards with a green led.

    How do you know they are coming in before you turn the light on?

    While we call we are scanning the area around us non stop with the hand held flash lights until eyes are spotted. Then we keep the light on the animal until he walks within range for a shot. The flash lights run on rechargeable batteries that last for about 5 hours on a full charge. We have spare batteries if we plan to hunt all night. The red led light does not scare the predators.
