Predator hunting has always been an interest of mine but I haven’t ever really pursued this type of hunting until this summer. As you all know the summer months can be a sportsman’s worst nightmare when it comes to finding things to hunt but as I found most states have some kind of predator hunting open year round. So as the buck fever set in over the summer I got the urge to try something totally new to me. I went out on my first coyote hunt just about a month ago and let me tell you it’s quite a rush. As I made my way to my elevated box blind with one of my best friends in the world we decided that we would sit up there as long as it took to take a coyote, and that we did. We got to the stand in mid afternoon and saw nothing for a good two hours. As we sat and waited a strong thunderstorm rolled in and literally shook the entire blind for a good half hour. Sitting there discouraged with the weather we continually called with our Cass creek Ampli-Fire but had nothing come in. right before dark we decided to call once more before leaving the stand. This time it worked, right as we called we saw a white flash in the dry bean field about a half-mile away. A few seconds later we saw a coyote cross the road in a dead sprint right at us. As he approached us I hit him with the rangefinder and got ready for the shot. At 150 yards he stopped as we hit the call one more time and turned broadside. I pulled up on him with my open sighted AK-47 and pulled the trigger. As I heard the beloved whap you hear when you hit your target the coyote dropped. The 7.62x39mm round had done its job and it had effectively hooked me on the sport of coyote hunting forever. As my first ever predator hunt had come to a close just as the sun was setting I couldn’t believe how effective the Cass creek call had been. Without that call we would have never been able to call that coyote in. The call is unique in its field in the fact that its an all in one package. The speaker and calls selector are all together in a small easy to carry package. Don’t let this fool you though; pumping out 120db it can literally cause hearing loss. Honestly there should be a warning on the label stating that it should not be used inside, take it from my roommates there ears rang for days after a 6am wounded rabbit wakeup call.
