Vontae Davis – Apparently, the way that Vontae prepares for and beats Peyton Manning…is to prepare for playing against Tom Brady. More proof that you don’t have to be…you get the point.
The Exchange Int – We’ve been visiting with a childhood friend that has started something pretty amazing. More to come on The Exchange later.
Awesome – In the form of a Craigslist ad. Leave it to a dude in Enid, OK with a ’97 Jeep he’s trying to get rid of, to create one of the most epic internet shopping thrill rides…ever.
Wildgame Innovations – With their Game Feeder and Trail Camera division based out of Grand Prarie, TX, we’ve been using a few of their products and have been more than pleased. More to come for Wildgame Innovations as well.
The other day, I got the bright idea to try and call in a few coyotes. I was also going to use a little bait to try and coax them in even closer. I had the cameras set up, bait set, and everything ready to go. Looking back, I know now that I should have packed it in once the electronic call went on the fritz, but no…I had to tough it out. The next tell-tale sign that I should have just turned right around and gone home, was the fact that I forgot to take out my field points and put in the broad-heads. Did I give up? Hell no! I was going to stick this shit through to the bitter end…no matter how stupid this was going to make me look.
So, without a predator call, without the weaponry to get a good clean kill by opening massive wounds, I was still able to bring one in fairly close with the bait. I first caught sight of the coyote sneaking in at around 95 yards. He was pretty cautious and it took him a good 15 minutes to make up the 65 yards that I need to eliminate between me and him. Finally I was ready to try and take a shot. I drew my bow back. As he was moving around the bait, I tried to give a grunt to make him pause. What came out of my throat sounded nothing like a grunt, and more like the crack of a high school sophomore’s voice, instantly alerting the coyote and sending him running for the hills. No shot…no kill. Let’s take a look at the train-wreck of a hunting video.
