I’d rather have a coyote

How can you not be excited when you are checking trail cameras? The suspense, the unknowing… one of the first pulls of the season gave us quite a shock.

A dog.  A big brown, pit bull looking dog at the Sky Condo.

It looks healthy enough but the last thing we want is a dog up there.  Is it friendly? Who knows but now we may need to carry more protection than we usually do when we are checking the cameras and making tweaks to the food plots.  I would rather see a coyote; they are skiddish of people and don’t tend to come out in daylight hours.  Plus, you can shoot them on sight and resolve the problem.

Dad thinks he knows who own’s the dog but regardless, it doesn’t belong running in the woods.
