December Arizona Predator Hunt

Arizona Predator Hunt
Ian holds his fist in the air, pretending it was the bobcat he missed.

Ian Chappel came all the way from Pittsburgh, PA to hunt with us in Arizona. He had never hunted predators, so every experience and predator called-in was truly a new experience.

“I honestly expected to see predators standing on the side of the road, but I did not expect to get this many.  I didn’t expect to see them come in so fast and hard to the call!”  -Ian Chappel

We will have more to come on Ian’s Guided Arizona Predator Hunt, after we get done with the other guided predator hunts we have scheduled.

Guided Predator Hunt-October 2013

wind

The #1 factor in calling predators???  Might just be, the weather (aka wind)!

And we had plenty of it on this two day guided predator hunt.

Sean & Sonny flew into Las Vegas, NV from their home state of South Carolina on Tuesday October 1st.  They had a 2 day predator hunt scheduled with us.

The first day we called in 5 coyotes despite the wind, but we were only able to get shots at 2 of the coyotes.  After fighting the wind all day, we decided to hunt the next 2 mornings and shoot prairie dogs in the afternoon.  (FYI-we did not charge them for the 3rd day because the conditions were horrible.)

The wind was howling on the second day.  We called in and killed one grey fox, before deciding to head out to shoot some prairie dogs.  It was a great choice, because the wind was horrible, but the p dogs were out!

The 3rd morning was colder and the wind was blowing out of the North.  We managed to call-in 2 coyotes and saw 5.  We bumped 3 coyotes laying up out of the wind, which was horrible luck, because they were right near our stands.

Calling in the wind is a grind!  Most predators will be hunkered down and almost impossible to bring to the call.  If you have to call in the wind, be prepared, because it’s going to be a long day.  It’s about making the most stands possible and being ready for the predators to respond quickly.

Sean & Sonny learned a lot with us.  We know they will be able to take what they have learned and apply it on their own hunts.
