Re: Long Range Hunting

I have a Wild and if you are sitting and glassing for varmints it works excellent but for calling coyotes where you are moving every 15 to 20 minuets it is to big and heavy in my opinion. The 243 improved would be a good choice with the heavy bullets.

Re: Long Range Hunting


I love coyote hunting so much I sold the family farm and moved to Arizona two years ago because I kept running out of coyotes to shoot at in Indiana.

For calling, I use a 17 Remington with a 27" Lilja barrel. I push 25 grain Bergers out the muzzle at 4,300 FPS. Sighted at 200 yards, at that speed, I can hold dead on a coyote out to 250 yards and only be 1.25" low. For calling coyotes, it's a rare coyote I can't entice inside of 250 yards with a couple of pup howls or squeals.

When I go looking for the longer coyotes, I go to the irrigation circles. my YP 1000 can't range the coyotes much past 400 yards, but it will range the wheels on the spigot, out to 7-800 yards. Having a spotter for coyotes is a big help, someone needs to see his reaction on impact to tell where he was hit. A coyote hit with a large bullet that passed though, can run a long ways. Hit low and drop one in the heart, and he will fold up 60-100 yards. But hit a little far back into the liver and he will hunch up at impact then line out and may run close to half a mile. Don't give up your search too quickly, hitting one may be the easiest part.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?

Re: Long Range Hunting

One would be hard pressed to beat the capabilities of the military laser rangefinders even if they are not eye safe.

You don't have to worry about ANY weather conditions interferring with their operations at all.

You must use them with caution as per where they are lasered and should have a good back stop when doing so.

There are many in this country being used and the price is between $3000.00 and $3500.00 when you find one for sale. Most LR hunters and shooters like them so well, they hold on to them.

You will see them for sale from time to time.
