Re: Christmas \'yote

Nice yote. Is that a CZ you have there?

I shot a yote last night but I have to say it took alot of luck. I just went out and got him this morning and ranged back to the road I was sitting on, 543,542 yard with the Leica.

This how it happened. I was driving back from calling with my FX3, no luck, when I saw a black spot way out there. It was not moving but it looked to be out of place. I grabbed the Leica but could not get a range on him, he was too small and the field was flat, Saskatchewan for you. So I got the truck lined up so I could use the mirror as a rest and I grab my 243. I chambered a round guessed at the range dailed up 32.5" (I figured it was just over 500 yards judging by the half mile line on the section) and let her go. I heard a pluuuck and when I got the scope back on him he was biting his ass and then he was still. I could not believe it.

My next purchase has to be a camera so that I can let you guys see it. I will just have to get over my gun addiction.

On a side note the yote had mange and had chewed his own tail off and all the fur was gone off his belly and ass.

Re: Christmas \'yote

Sorry to hear about the miss. Those dang coyotes are a super hard running target. I've missed more coyotes than any other animal for sure.

Re: Christmas \'yote

Pictures really don't do it justice I agree. Looking at those rocks in the foreground you would think they are only beachball sized but in reality, they are the size of houses! Huge, huge country down there.

Re: Christmas \'yote

That coyote came in pretty sneeky and used every bit of sagebrush he could to come in undetected. The only reason I saw him is because I was elevated a bit on a hill and the sun was at my back.

Oh, it was more like 800 miles for one coyote but we did kill a ton of rabbits! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Christmas \'yote

They both went well. The guy with the rocky tag killed his at 60 yards 5 minutes before dark and it was a 175" ram.

The lady with the desert tag killed hers on the second to last day at about 250 yards and it scored 147". I wish I had pics but by the time everyone got back to camp with the horns and meat and cape, it was after midnight. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Christmas \'yote

Thanks.

No, the hat is not custom. It was the hat that FNAWS sold at their banquets several years ago. I just had to have one!

Was your Christmas good too?

Re: Christmas \'yote

I love those Foxpros. I've got to monkey around with them a bit and can't believe how much better they are than the old Johnny Stewart players we've used for years. But for the last several years, we've only used electronic calls for special situations. I really enjoy calling them in with hand calls better. Just makes you feel like you were more involved in the process. Kinda like reloading your ammo vs. buying factory stuff.

Anyhow, good luck on your next coyote hunt! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
