In the late 70's and early 80's, at the age of 6, I followed my father
chasing hounds, trapping and predator calling. This took place in
Southern Indiana. The predator calling consisted of your coon hunting
head lamps, a shotgun and an old Johnny Stuart electric with one or two
hand calls in the mix. Witnessing my dad shoot the first coyote recorded
in forever in Indiana was the start of a huge addiction from a very
Then moving to Wyoming in 1981, the predator hunting increased. Like
Indiana, predator hunting and trapping helped pay the bills, very
enjoyable but always serious. The new tactic was the same calls, a super
shooting rifle with a scope that collected light and a 4x4 pick up with
dual roof mounted spotlights. This style of hunting killed my first
coyote a the age of 11.
Living in the middle of several sheep ranches, predator work never ended
and learning never ceased. Eventually, the need to solve trouble calls
in sheep herds lied to a more advanced style of hunting and calling,
such as locating, denning, use of dogs and a variety of special sounds
and calls. For the last 11 years I've worked for Johnson County as a
full time ADC Agent. Although rewarding, the stress and demand of this
job is more than most think. I've had the privilege of co working and
retaining knowledge from many friends of the trade. Starting with my
father, my hunting partner David McCartney since early high school, 45
year full time co worker Bill Dixon, co worker and contest partner Rock
Buckingham and co worker and contest partner Calvin Taylor and several
others. I also take time off to bow hunt big game and guide bow and gun
hunts for elk, deer and antelope.
With a varying smarter coyote, all tools become necessary to get the job
done. In my case, it is a lot of tools such as airplanes, choppers,
trapping, snaring, m-44's and most importantly calling and denning. The
FOXPRO products have delivered well for me for a lot of reasons. FOXPRO
products are tools and sounds are tools. The wide variety of quality
sounds and ability to change them up at will is second to none. Even in
the more open country in the west, the shotgun has come into play for me
more and more due to quality sounds and a good remote. Thanks FOXPRO.
I'm glad to be part of the FOXPRO team.
