Predator Hunters' Code of Ethics

Red Zone Hunting

The concepts of "zone hunting" are presented.  This is a decision tree for the ambush hunter for the exact few seconds before the first shot is fired and the events that can follow.  Zones are used here to explain what to do when and why.  Rubrics for making better decisions during a rapid-fire hunt, when to shoot, when to follow up, and when to run are also described.  This article is for the most part about hunting success, closing the deal, killing, and picking up animals, but also describes other expectations and positive results.

If you are new to hunting, or new to hunting coyotes, and have questions about setups, firearms, camouflage, or calls, read the "Thick Cover" article first.  Red Zone Hunting is an article about shooting, killing animals and closing the deal, and doesn't cover other important aspects of setting up an ambush nearly as well as the other article.
