Coyotes in the Woods
I was just reading the comments on a Field & Stream survival article. Several hunters are saying they’ve been stalked by coyotes while making their way back to their trucks at sundown.
I know a lone coyote ain’t nothin’ to be afraid of. But a pack is another thing. There are coyotes in my woods, a lot of them. I never see them, but I hear them all the time when I’m hunting.
Sometimes when I’m on my way back to the house, I hear something rushing through the tall grass, or sometimes I’ll glance to the side and see something moving. It could be a deer, or it could be a coyote or even a cougar.
It scares the crap out of me. I’ll often yell a series of foul words in hopes of scaring it off, whatever the hell it is. But if it’s with a pack, I reckon it will not scare easily.
I’m always a little jumpy when walking back to the house at sundown. It’s creepy out there.
