    Went out tonight. We got set up, started calling, see two coyotes, get ready to shoot, and my thermal dies! FML. We go back to the truck, change batteries, and head back. We call, spot a coyote, but he's not interested and goes and beds down in some tall grass about 350 yards away. We figure since he's up wind, we might as well try to stalk him. We get within 60 yards and squeak, hoping he'll pop his head up. Nope, not interested, so I take a shot. It hits him low and breaks his front leg. He runs a few yards and I drill him in the chest.

    They were everywhere last night. We saw them six out of seven spots and got shots in four of the spots. My buddy was on the gun after I got mine and he got one after missing the first two spots. The one he got was a pack of five that came flying in from 800 yards.

    Yes. I now have a set and my partner has a set of new batteries in our jackets. I really need to get a rechargeable battery pack. Hopefully, momma will get it for me this Christmas (if not, I'll order it on the 26th!).
