Newsletter For The Week Of November 13, 2019.

Coyote (Spencer Siitia Tuinei, The Beehive)

“I was getting ready to stand up and walk myself back to the Jeep right before Eli whispered, ‘Two o’clock. Thousand yards.’

I checked my scope. I saw orange. Just sand gusts. I looked up and saw Eli slowly gesturing with two fingers to look closer.

It was a dog; slender as a knife, scampering adeptly across craggy floor and scruffy underbrush. The coyote paused--I thought it heard me stretching moments ago, but instead the coyote sung a long call, a howl. I doubt I will ever hear anything like the howl again: not a bark, but a cry--a cry with a strange honing resonance, traveling farther distances than a dog’s howl. The coyote howled while prowling in its’ bouncing trot, pausing for another beat. Three more appeared, all tapering directions and trailing with speed in a calculated formation. A team.”

This Is The Place Podcast (Chris Rawle, Meg Walter, The Beehive)

Cougars are everywhere in Utah and the DWR has tips to avoid being eaten: pretend to be a statue; make extended eye contact and talk about your day; have better posture. The turkey tale of Mendon, UT, is revisited and compared to Toms River, NJ, where turkeys are pecking out their own reflections in windows. A questionable Utah marketing campaign goes awry and of course, it centers on a bad avocado pun.
