Jim Hartman got out to his hunting spot northeast of Forada at about 5:30 a.m. on April 21, the first day of the second turkey hunting season in Minnesota, where he set up a couple decoys.


Toms started gobbling from the roost not far away just before 6. As Hartman was answering them back with his call, a coyote attacked one of the decoys he had set up.
