What is the best way to hunt over these cows. I was thinking my 300 win mag at a distance when there is no good fur but for now my .223 and or 22-250. I was also thinking about stalking around back and catching them as they transit to and from the carcass.
Thanks for the help, I need to connect with some coyotes as it may lead to good deer prospects in the fall
wow... you have a great opportunity to do some long range shooting,with your 300 mag. I use 150gr. Sierra Spitzer Boat Tail or Hornady SST 150gr. Nosler brass IMR 4350 73grs. mag. primers .Ref.Hodgdon Powder Company,data.hodgdon.com Them coyotes will not leave untill you shoot them all,I have my scope set at 10X and have got them at 500yds.sleeping in the sun with a full belly,the magpies,crows will only help you with the bait pile,good luck,makes me drool I have shot alot of coyotes over dead livestock.
Have Fun,Its better to pass by a poor shot and wait for a good shot.I am not there to scare them.
