Hunter's instinct

Had a little drama on the farm tonight. After closing up the chickens tonight we heard a ruckus in the field behind the house. A pack of coyotes sounded pretty close. I brought the eggs in and came out to feed the dogs. J ran in and grabbed his shotgun.

We put the spotlight on the field and not far behind the coops I spotted five coyotes. After a couple shots they ran off to the west. We drove around the section to see if we could see them. Making sure they really took off and weren't coming back for a second shot at whatever tasty morsels were lying in wait.

Instinct sure kicks in during one of these moments. I was tracking those guys by their eyes. Don't even think of coming near my little rooster Henry. Don't even think of it.
