I am glad we don't have alligators, snakes, giant spiders and that usually it is early enough in the year that most of the bugs, mosiquots & ticks, are not out yet. Mid to late April it is beautiful in MN as everything is turning green and the mornings are ususally still fairly cool.
It is very interesting to hear everyone else's encounters when hunting.
Rob that is quite the hair raising encounter you and your son had with that coyote.
