Bumped a hen with at least 2 poults size of baby chickens. Did not like the coyote I bumped 100 yards later. Hope they're safe

No gun to shoot the yote? Or no shot?

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.

It was just there in the grass and tore off into the woods. Heard a few deer run off with it, lol

Have been seeing poults for the last 2weeks or so, both here around the house and up on the mountain. Most are little bigger than quail size. Jumped a hen yesterday on the mountain with eight or so that probably weren't but a couple hours old. She was off the shoulder of a gated road setting on them. She stood up and tried to lead me off, trampling a few I'm sure. I backed out best I could to let her re-group, hoping she did not injure them. She was nested 10ft in right next to a good puddle. Have been here 13 years and always see poults by this time each year. Biologists actually have our season set just right. Lots of breeding mid to late March, well before season. Good hunting throughout season, right up till the end. I'm confident I could hunt hard gobbling, "willing" Gobblers for at least the next two weeks.

Mowing today I saw 3 different hens with poults..one of them was probably 10-12 so looked like a full clutch. The smallest ones were about the size of a baseball while the largest were a good bit bigger than a quail and could fly (clumsily) but could get off the ground. Signs of a good hatch in my area.
Leave it better than you found it.
