Lyle Sinkey says he usually shoots coyotes as soon as he sees them, but for "some dang reason" he decided to call this one in.
Below the YouTube video Sinkey recently posted of his coyote encounter, he wrote, "As he got closer (20 feet), I expected him to bolt. But as you can see in the video, this rascal came in hot and latched a hold of my boot."
Sinkey, who lives in West Monroe, Louisiana, is a camera operator/editor for Duck Commander, so he's no doubt had his share of wild and crazy outdoor experiences. On his Facebook page, Sinkey said the close encounter was "all good" and that his turkey hunt turned into a coyote hunt. I've reached out to him to find out if the hunt was successful or if the boot-biting coyote escaped unscathed. I'll update here once I learn more.
