So my son and I get up and get moving for turkey this morning.  I hear a gobbler and we get set up.  I call lightly and I see a coyote.  He spins and gets into 'stalk' mode.  I'm about 7-8 yds from my son.  I whisper "There's a coyote, get ready"  He says "Where?"  Well, he's on the decoys so I call a little bit again and he works down to about 20-25 yds away from us.  I'm whisper/yelling at my son "Why aren't you shooting???"  He is fidgeting around like a 13 yo is apt to do.  Finally I see the coyote has had enough and figure the gig is up.  I get my gun up and fire, rolling him. 
My son says "Now I see him"
After we started walking, he confesses.  "Dad, I forgot to put my contacts in this morning.  It was early and I wasn't quite awake yet." 
When I look at the smiles on all the children's faces, I just know they're about to jab me with something.

Just think, he is only 13 so it is only going to get worse. Just wait until about 15 or 16 and all he can think about are the girls. [biggrin]
