I went down for weekly out of season hog/coyote hunting on a property in Bosque County, Texas. The property is 1200 acres, but most of the action happens inside of 60-65 acres that are cultivated, right now of which half is in oats and the other half is a newly sprouted hay field. So when nothing came to my caller at another part of the property, I headed down to the oats field to see what was going on. So as it turned out, hunting them alive was much easier than hunting them after they were dead. When they would die, they would fall down below the level of the oats and no longer be visible on thermal. The oats were so tall that thermal was useless until I walked right up on them and that meant my headlamp was more useful for the search than was thermal. I found only 3 in 2 hours of searching. With the help of the buzzards, the landowner found 3 more while collecting the carcasses with his tractor. So 6 made for a good day!
