Biggest coyote I've shot yet.

Got called in to do some coyote control for a local dairy farmer out here in Saskatchewan. They've got a pile of dead animals behind their yard, and the coyotes, of course, have been helping themselves. The farm is in a "Shooting Restricted" zone (no centerfire rifles), because it's about 10 minutes away from a small city.

Just walked out into the field at daybreak, didn't even start calling yet, and shot this big fella at around 115 yards with my new Savage 93R17 TRR-SR.

No headshot here, aimed for the shoulder, hit the shoulder. Bugger ran about 100 yards, which isn't bad for being hit by a 17 grain VMax. He weighed in at 46 pounds!

Great shot. Hard to get one past the mid 30 lb range. Is that a Boyds tactical stock?

That's the factory stock. I'd say it's safe to assume it is a Boyds' as it looks identical, and I know Savage does use Boyds' stocks on some of their other rimfires.

Interestingly enough, it isn't synthetic but is actually a laminated stock that has been epoxied over, textured, and painted black; and it seems to be a good deal stiffer than any Savage factory synthetic I've dealt with.

Nice coyote! Congrates!
I have a.big one around here that I've been trying to get for several years now and just can't get him to come in or when I see him I don't have a weapon with me.
