Re: collared coyote
We hit a coyote in ND about 3 years ago, the bullet just slit his belly skin, never dumped his guts. Left a drop of blood in the 3" of snow about every 10 feet.
We drove around the section and found his track and let Skip my 3 yr old Jack out on the track. He wind tracked that coyotes trail over a mile and a half. (we followed him in the truck)
We hit a hill over a 160 acre crp, and spotted the yote in the middle, I took one shot and the coyote went down. (appearently heard the sonic crack of the shot and dropped to hide) We drove down to get him and no dice.
after 5 minutes of looking I ask Red if he sees Skip. Dam now I think I lost my dog in the jungle of grass.
A couple minutes later out comes this yote, out of a cattail slough on the end of the crp with Skip running 40 yards behind him. We didn't miss that time, but it was quite a barage.
If you ever want the best little hunting buddy ever get a Jack Russel.
