I was walking in Monday night on the east end from blind 6, and thought I heard something in the marsh grass beside me.I stopped and listened ,nothing.I figured I'm hearing thing's, but 20 feet more down the trail I am definately hearing something in the grass moving beside me ,I shine my flashlight ,nothing. I start moving again and this coyote start's howling (20 yards )boy that will get your attention!Then the rest (I'm guessing 2 or 3,maybe more ? ) start with the yipping,and squealing while the howler starts barking .They stayed in the same spot(fork of the road ,so to speak where the trail goes to 5,3, and 4 )and carried on for about 10 minutes.I didn't fear for my safety as I was travelling with Mr. Browning. What I am concerned about is that most of you guys have a dog with you.I can see the potential for a messy situation. I think you would be wise to have your dog on a lead for the trip out.It should also be noted that I set a personal best time for my trip back to the truck !
