Re: Where to go for coyotes?

260,

Yes, Geoffrey Corn is the 'smith I referred to. I'm down in Carterville now, but will be moving back to White County soon. That'll be spittin' distance from Olney.

Have the deer hunters locked up all the ground there yet, or do they still let you bust a coyote?

Speedbump

I have plenty of ground to hunt on. The problem is, after deer season the hound hunters have them scattered to hell and back. I hope the hunters are tired and the yotes settled down by late Jan.
My buddy has acess to a lot of ground in WHITE Co. also.
Goeff is building my Dad a 260IMP in the next week or two for a F-Class gun. Should be a hoot.
Let me hear from you if you want to hunt. It's a 25 min drive from White.

Bill,

I think I remember you from a 500 yard match at Red Brush last year. If I recall, you were shooting a 308 tactical rifle in F-class & doing well.

The hunt sounds good. Not many hound hunters down here, & plenty of critters. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Yes the 308 does shoot well. I had Geoff build me a 260 tactical rifle for hunting and F-Class matches. It shoots quite well also.
What caliber do you shoot? F-Class?

Bill,

I mainly shoot conventional LR with a 7mmRUM and some Palma, both of which were built by Geoff & Joe in Oakland City. My service rifle is a Bill Wylde built AR-15.

Traylor did well with his 260AI - 6th in the nation in F-class ain't too shabby for a one-armed Hoosier! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

We have something in common, gunsmiths. I have a short AR built by Bill for a critter getter. I put 4 of 5 shots in .154 @ 200 last weekend with it. I know it's a fluke, but it looks neet on my shop wall. on good no wind days it is easyly 1/2 min to 500yards.
My Dad and I shot down at the nationals also and we saw how well Jeff shot (8th I believe). We came back the next day and changed the caliber form 260 to 260 IMP. Very impressive match cartridge. A 142 @ 2850 fps with 43 gr of powder.
Last day of deer season today, so will be out tomorrow checking to see i fthere are any full lazy yotes out in the open [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
