Got this fellow last sunday here in kentucky. He & two buddy's came in to some female invitational howls. This was my first coyote with my new savage predator max1 in 243.
here's his pelt with a 500 watt light shining on it after I cased him out
I shot one several years ago. I hit him low and opened his belly with my 7 mag at 565yds, and he ran over the hill. After a pretty good chase I got within 50yds and finished him with my 22 mag. I was really excited, until I got up to him and saw the mange on his belly. I ended up having to ditch him. There have been 3 taken from that area, must have crossed with a dog somewhere along the way.
