Coyote at 1041 yards with my 6.5-284 Norma

Sunday morning a friend and I decided to go coote hunting. We parked the pickup and walked to the top of a huge grassy flat. I set the foxpro for a coyote locator call and a few seconds later we heard several of them answer us. We eventually glassed one out of a large sidehill. I laid down prone and got into position and threw him the lieca 1200. After q few tries he said "1039". right about then the yote takes a few steps up the hill and lies down. He re ranged the coyote and found it to be 1041 yards. I looked at my drop chart, and dialed 22.7 MOA into my scope, and guessed on around 3 MOA of left wind. Once he had a good bead on the coyote I let it fly! The bullet hit just over the coyotes back. He stood up and ran down the hill about 50 feet, turned around and walked right back to where he was standing. I held on the bottom of his brisket and touched it off again. I saw the coyote dump over, and around a second later I heard that wonderful crunch sound. That is my first yote over 1000 yards, and there will be many more to co e, thanks to the accuacy of the 6.5!
