Well Donny and I went out this morning with the intent of shooting a coyote. He had even made himself a hide to try out :D
Image

it was a nice morning with a slight breeze from the west. Don has been waiting patiently for months to try his new gun on a coyote. :evil: We were trying an ambush first thing and Donny's patience ran out when a coyote stopped at about 330 yds. :lol: :lol:
Image

I quit chuckling as it did that tail twirl thing they do when shot in the toque. :shock:


I took the next shot at a dandy young specimen
Image
:oops: :oops:


Then off to try some calling and I got to see
Image

Which was the direction he came from on a rope. He even gave a deep male howl to let me know I was facing the wrong direction initially. :roll:
Image

Donny showing off a fairly nice coyote for this time of year.
Image

Then we went over to where I knew any coyotes would come to where he would watch and I looked at this.
Image

and this
Image

Of course a coyote came over this knoll behind me :twisted:
Image

So I quietly and slowly[back will hurt for a week] spun around and shot left handed which as usual was a pretty poor idea :roll: :roll: I connected but we had to trail it for 60 yds to retrieve it
Image

What the young scamp looks like all camo'd up.
Image

and by the time he had to go to piano lessons :roll:
Image


So I guess the season is on cause I sure had a ball today. :D :D

:shock: You two are a sniper team of your own! Donny needs to become a (coyote) bounty hunter, if there is such a position. Job well done TT and Donny.

Jeff, you'll have to settle for hunting pics as the body won't allow trapping this year, I will try snaring but that will be in a bit.
longhairboy, I do have a lot of targets but even here the odd crow or magpie gets used as a target. :lol:

tt- you guys make it look easy. Looks like a great hunt and memory maker. I hope you get a little gas money from them so you can go do it again :) !!

PC, it is that easy :shock: . I've never said it was hard cause we have toooooooooooooooo many coyotes and with my way of making a living we got more land to hunt than we can cover. One of the reasons I went to Ky was to see why everyone couldn't do it. I learned right away the "Why" part.

Trappintime, you may have said it before and I just missed it, but do you use an electric caller or a hand call?

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Cat-man I'll be nice this time and just say,"Electronics have no place in my outdoor life" :wink: . The game I chase hasn't really got that much more sophisticated in the past 50 years so I see no such need to use new technology for me to enjoy the good life. To each their own but as you can tell by Swamps reply, I have been a mite vocal about it in the past. :shock:

Donny was shooting his new .243 with loads he made himself[with supervision :wink: ]. I was using my 22-250 and I'll be danged if he didn't have less pelt damage. :D

haha! I don't doubt that a bit...... that 22-250 is honking right on and I am sure the extra velocity talks a bit more when it smacks home. Both are great rounds.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Both of those guns are super animal anchors! What bullet is Donny shooting through the 243? I shoot Sierra 85gr bthp's through mine and pelt damage generally aint so bad and the bullet passes through predators. I am not sure how much the hollow points expand, but I'm thinking it is not significant on animals. It's also my favorite deer load. :wink:

Donny loaded 55gr Nosler Ballistic tip spitzers for his coyote hunting and I use Sierra Blitzking 40gr in the 22-250. Both have given me excellent performance in the past.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Wow those should be screaming through the air!!!! I'm sure they work very well, as well as eliminate much of the need of hold over. That's cool that he loaded his own shells. I think it just adds a little something to the experience. :wink:

When you live out here in the boondocks[prairie] it's a good idea to know how to make a shell :wink: Driving 50 miles cause you are out of bullets can get more expensive than a "woman" habit. :shock:
