Did 30 plus in LE, then 6 years at well known Custom Pistolsmith company in NW Ar. Am a longtime Bowhunter with recurves and just recently went to compounds. Did ILF conversions on old compound risers for people 10 plus years and am slowing down to just hunt. Have a priority interest this time of year in Coyotes. I know the 1911 well, can help anyone with a question in this area if needed?

Know LE in and out but the newer LE is different from us Old school types.

I am not in any serious thoughts about LE because I am trying to forget most of it.:)

My priority is to enjoy life now with my wife of 43 years and my dogs. My old boy is 14 and going downhill on me. Captain Morgan is a schnauzer, Have a Jack Russell too, 11 years old.

Had some gunfighting in my days and had to retire. I have some mild PTSD from it, some time on the Mexican border etc. Primarily in Arkansas though.

Welcome aboard! Do I understand correctly that you hunt coyotes with a bow? That's dedication, if so!

The only Coyotes I have killed with a bow were the consequential contacts while bowhunting deer.

Not that dedicated to do that but 1% of the time.:)

I am shotgunning or rifling them 99% of the time and learning more than anything. I need all the help I can get to be better.

Welcome, Sam. I'm guessing it's Sam from MO, is that right? And the 62 could be either your age or birth year, I guess. Not a big deal, except if you're gonna talk coyote hunting there's a big difference between Missouri and some place like Arizona or Montana.

One of our active posters is a retired LEO in the Indianapolis area and we have several fair to middlin' pistol shooters, so those parts of your background will fit in just fine here. It's a pretty friendly bunch, so jump right in and let us get to know you.

Thanks, brother! I am in Arkansas, did some time of work in the Cochise County area of Arizona in the '80s.

It was very different then, you could hunt right on the border and not have your truck stolen.

Been in Arkansas since 1987 on steady. I bow hunt Colorado and have up there 14 times. Have killed a few Elk with a Bow. I always went on federal land solo hunting and in the Durango/Silverton and Pagosa areas. Yes, 62 years old and could go back high myself but my wife is on oxygen and hate to leave her alone. May have my daughter watch her this year, have to wait and see?

I am really getting into Coyotes and Bobcats. Passed on a Cat a few weeks ago because it was eating a gut pile behind my house from deer kill and figured it grossly unsporting to kill it that way but a coyote is a fair game. I have much fewer turkeys in my area since the yotes have taken over and fewer deer. I know the cat probably killed some of the poults but for some reason hold it in higher regard than a Yote. I have seen very few in my area but the yotes need cleaning out some.
