Cotote @ 1457 yards

I was spotting for Recoil as he was trying to hit a stick at 1435 or there abouts. He had just shot two rounds that landed within inches of each other when I hear COYOTE. I'm zoomed in too far with the spotting scope to see it but as Tyson barks at it to get it to stop I hear recoil let loose another round. He says it looked like I hit it so we hike out to take a look.
Just below where he was shooting at the stck I spot this laying in the bottom of the wash



That red spot on its shoulder is the entrance and it left a dallar size exit. It still went over 50 yards after the hit=Mostly downhill.
Recoil was shooting his Savage 300WSM with Berger 185s @ just over 3000fps. This is toped with a NF with the 1000 yard reticle that works very well BTW. In this case he was dialing though=43 MOA up and 8 MOA for the wind. Some may call it luck but Recoil works very hard to make his luck

Pic from the coyote back to the truck....It was getting dark and pics where taken with cell phone 5s, had to put a yellow x where they were as you could not see them.

Re: Cotote @ 1457 yards

Damn Fine shooting. They are pretty small at that range. Nice going!! I have taken a hand full over 1000 the farthest was 1200+. It takes a well seasoned hold and trigger break to pull that off.

Congrats!!

Jeff

Re: Cotote @ 1457 yards

I didnt see it getting shot but they where claiming it to be a big one= I was the first to spot the carcase and had to laugh as she was definatly not a big coyote but a better shot I have not witnessed.
Looking though the spotting scope I didnt have perspective of the stick he was shooting at, what I thought was a 6' stick was only about that. I could put 2 fingers and my thumb in the 3 holes ( the group was spaced the same as a bowling ball) he put in the hillside.
Four years ago I was teaching him how to shoot longer ranges= These days I'm the student! He has that Savage 300WSM flat out shooting!!

That's amazing. I couldn't imagine hitting one half that distance.

Re: Cotote @ 1457 yards

It realy helps when they walk into your target you already have 4 rounds into The wind was playing some funny games but he has been practicing a lot and getting quite good at hitting what he is aiming at.....with the 300WSM. The tag soup he had last fall kinda put a fire under him
Last weekend he handed me his 25-06 for a 250 yard coyote milling around some newborn calves. My excuse for missing is I had to shoot left handed but the shot broke clean.....I still cant believe I missed a standing coyote @ 250 yards

That is an amazing shot. I am still trying to crack 1000.
