Default Predator during Deer Season

I was Hunting the last day of our Rifle Deer Season and it was going into the last decent light left in the day,I was watching 2 Doe's in the very back of our Field being chased around by a Young 4-Point Buck....hoping they would come closer but with the fading light I knew it probably wasn't going to happen?
I had plenty area to cover so I looked behind me at the Food Plot above the Pond,then checked the mowed path along the long field to my left and then looked in the other 3 Food Plots in front of me scattered across the Field from the Sanctuary of my ladder stand nestled in a nice Big Green Pine Tree!

I look to my right and saw movement in the Food Plot out to my right about 75 that a Coyote,no it's a Fox!So I slowly raise my Browning A-bolt Hunter .243 Rifle and watch the Red Fox work it's way across the Food Plot to a mowed path in the tall Golden Yellow Barn Grass,he turns right and walks up-hill disappearing for a few seconds behind the tall grass then re-appears in the next Food Plot that leads from my stand out about 30 yards and He is it at the end of the Plot when I let it a little "Bark" and stops broadside looking away so I take off the safety aim at his shoulder area and "Boom" the Male Red Fox drops right there!

Getting a coyote while deer hunting still feels like a sucessful hunt to me. Ironically I have seen deer on 3 different coyote hunts and coyote on a deer hunt. I shot that coyote with a 357 rifle, DRT. Coyotes sometimes bug me on spring Turkey hunts too.

Nothing wrong with taking a nice red home with you at the end of the day.

Once tanned they make for a beautiful wall hanging !!!

Congratulations bud !
