Re: Under 1/2 MOA with Sierra 52gr match
Not tanned pelts. We skinned the coyotes and then turned the pelts inside out and rubbed them with salt. This will preserve the hides, but not as well as tanning.
They were shot South of Plentywood, Montana. The dog on right was shot about a year before the other. Both were shot by my Grandpa with his .223, a Remington 788. I am holding a Winchester M670 in .270, which was my 'yote gun at the time. (An excellent coyote cartridge...just ask Elmer Keith [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ) Range was ~150 for the bigger dog and ~100 for the smaller one.
The call we used is an old wounded rabbit call that my Grandpa has had forever. I have no clue as to what brand or model.
Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but you can't help but smile when you see one tumbling down the stairs.
