Shot 2 coyotes yesterday evening
Went out coyote hunting with my dad and ended up shooting 1 on the way up there. He was off the road about 150 yards just looking for mice. I had my .220 swift with 40g BT at 4400fps. Just as my dad stopped the car, the yote was runnin over the hill, but 1 well placed shot up the rear was all he could handle. That little bullet made quite a mess for an entrance wound, no exit wound. We drove up the road a little ways more and there was another one standing off to my dads side. He had his .270 WSM with 140g SST's. The coyote was standing there at about 100 yards, but my dad forgot to take his safety off and right as he was squeezin the trigger, the coyote took off. Ha ha ha. 3 shots later and that coyote was doing mach 10. Not to bad, not even to the hunting destination yet and we already seen 2 coyotes and shot 1. After a while we stopped at an old bridge and decided to glass some big wheat fields. I saw a yote standing at the edge of a field some 450 yards away. I really wished I woulda had my 25-06 with my target scope because I held a little over that coyote with my swift and who knows where I hit. Ha ha. I need to get that swift a 6-18 target scope and then that coyote woulda been toast. Oh well though. On the way home we went by an old farmhouse that breeds pheasants. I happened to look up and see a yote coming down the hill towards the barn. I did not have time to rangefind it, but knew it was inside 350 yards so I just held dead on. Coyote dropped dead in its tracks. Later rangefinded it at 325 yards. The little 40g at 4400fps really tears them yotes a new one. I drilled the big female right behind the shoulder. The entrance hole again was devastating, but no exit wound. Overall it turned out to be a pretty decent night for coyotes.
