All of a sudden I noticed that it was really starting to rain. I couldn’t believe it, but the sky didn’t look bad so I thought it was just a passing shower. Then I said to myself, “Wait a minute” and took off my ProEars. It was silent. What I was hearing were the drops of water from last night’s rain falling from the leaves. Then I took off the ears, it was as if I were deaf! They were so comfortable that I forgot they were on, and I could hear every snap of a twig. It was as if my hearing was amplified 10 times. I could hear everything, and when I took them off, it was as if I could hear nothing. Fantastic. No coyote was going to sneak up behind me with these ears on.
"The scent confusion that I had read about had this coyote so absorbed that he ignored me and went back to smelling the grass. "
Packed up and started following the trail of the coyote. I was amazed that it left a very clear path through the grass and brush, and I was able to follow it quite a ways until I came into a maze of paths that could have been created by deer that morning. So that was it, and I headed back to the Jeep.
"Everything felt right and worked well even though I screwed up and let my guard down. If my rifle was ready I would have had an easy head shot and that coyote would be history."
