Coyote hunting? We need to have a talk about focusing your energies where they're most needed! How about a few more deer. You can come by me and stay for a few weeks. Deer are eating me out of house and home lately and at least the coyotes eat free roaming cats! All joking aside because I realize we've got way too many coyotes too, I love my Red-shouldered hawk photo. Thank you for doting on me and posting treats for me to find.

I tried to resize the photo before i posted but figured out if you click on it you get a bigger picture.So far this year i have taken 10 deer,the season goes out tomarrow and hope to take at least one more(hopefully 2)I would love to come and do some population control,if IL nonresident tags were a little cheaper i would be there.The place where i'm coyote hunting is right along the river,i saw an osprey but wasn't quick enough to get a photo.One reason i like to hunt near water is there is so much wildlife to watch.

I believe this is the same type we've seen perched on our clothes line pole in the back yard. I've just not been fast enough to get the camera. We're only a few miles from a big water reservoir, and we do also have a nesting pair of bald eagles there. I have a feeling that's where he hangs out. Beautiful!
