Famous Coyote – Welcome to the Showbiz

Last week I got a phone call from a TV producer that was in South Texas filming a show for the Animal Planet, not a Soon to be Famous Coyote hunting show more of a reality show, and he was having a tough time getting a coyote on film and he was wondering if there was anything I could do to help.  They had been hunting with a certain south Texas “outfitter”, yes I use that term very loosly with this particular person, for 8 days and had yet to get a coyote on film.  They were down to their last day or 2 of filming and were scrambling to get a coyote on film and the producers in LA were starting to panic.  After harassing him for not making the show about me and for not calling me sooner, I told him I could probably get him a coyote but since I wasn’t involved with the show he didn’t want to hunt with me.  My only other option was to get him a coyote that was already mounted and let him use the magic of television to make it work.  I was about half joking, but he got all excited and was all for it.  It didn’t take long to find him a coyote and the rest was up to him.

Quick, there’s a coyote.  Shoot him!!

Hmmm.  That dead coyote just got up and walked away…..on 2 legs….doh

Famous Coyote's 15 minutes of fame are over already

I’m sure all businesses get strange phone calls, but it seems like being in the outfitting business I get more than my fair share of strange phone calls.  I’m not complaining.  I love my job and really enjoy taking people hunting and talking hunting with people so I’m happy to help anytime I can.  I have to admit that this call definitely ranks up there in the unusual requests though!!
