HARLEY TENORIO

ATHLON OPTICS PROSTAFF | MAIN FOCUS: PREDATOR HUNTING

Whether it’s cold early mornings or fighting sleep night walking, coyote hunting is my passion. I started hunting about 7 years ago and it all started with calling coyotes. You can follow my hunts on Facebook or Instagram.

About Me:

I grew up in a small agricultural and ranch town in SE Colorado where I soon realized how important managing coyotes would be for ranchers. Predator management became one of my main reasons why I got into predator hunting. I started hunting my sophomore year of college when my buddy introduced me to coyote hunting, it was all downhill from there. During the winter, we would day hunt 4-5 times a week and then a couple nights on top of that. My passion has lead me to chasing coyotes across the plains of SE Colorado to the mountains of the Western slope, and into the desert of Utah.

I remember watching a pair of coyotes walk across a frozen lake. I went straight to a rabbit distress hand call and we watched this pair run in, but to our surprise another coyote came out 20 yards to my right. Without hesitation I swung my rifle over and dropped him right where he stood. I had hand called my first coyote and I was hooked. The feeling of outsmarting a predator was a thrill and a rush.
