I was muzzleloader deer hunting this morning (opening day). I had seen eight deer but none in range. Then a coyote came out of the brush at about 80 or 90 yards. He gave me a standing broadside shot but I didn't take it. I was still hoping to get a shot at a deer. I even told myself that with that coyote roaming around I probably wouldn't see any more deer. But hope springs eternal. So I let him go. Sure enough I saw no more deer. I did see two more deer when I went back this evening but again not in range.
