Coyote total for the year

I am up to 22 coyotes so far this year. My daughter and i started about the 15 of Nov. I have had some good days one weekend my daughter and i took 7 coyotes. I got two coyotes christmas day afternoon. I am saving the money from each coyote a guy local gives me 20 bucks a dog and i dont have to skin them he even picks them up at the house.

I have saved every penny I am using it for a new scope fund. I have all the money in a coffee can labeled scope fund. Hopefully it will work I plan to let the coyotes pay for my new scope.

I will update the total as i take more probably not daily but i hope atleast once a week.

If anyone else wants to run their total feel free to. I am not posting this as a competative thing i just thought it would be cool to keep track of the dent we all put in the coyote population...

Re: Coyote total for the year

Got the big #1 a couple of weeks ago. Put too many holes in him with my 243 & 87 berger. Operator error.
What load are you using on your yotes?
Congrats on those numbers!

Re: Coyote total for the year

Depends on the gun-

.223 I use 55 gr ballistic tips
220 Swift 50 gr hollow points
.256 win mag 65 gr sierra's
257 WTBY mag 100 gr ballistic tips loaded HOT

Daughter uses eitehr

.243 80 gr cheap core locks
22 hornet 43gr ballistic tips

I just ordered a new scope for the .220 swift and loaded up about 140 rounds for it. As soon as i get time to go get it dialed in i will be using it for about all hunting except a coyote derby coming up for the I will use my RRA Predator. Cant afford to let any get away that day first place is to much $$$ to pass up.

I just got access to another big chunk about 3500 acres and the owner says there are several coyote dens on one section of it. He actually called me and told me he has had three barn cats get taken this year already and for me to kill as many as i can so i am working the weekend then Monday it is on the daughter and i will spend a majority of the day there.

Had a little whoopsie this afternoon my daughter missed two coyotes on two different set ups. She was using a mono pod tho and usually uses a bipod. So when we got home i put the bipod back on her rifle.

Re: Coyote total for the year

Im still working on my first. Its killing me. I have been out many many times since elk season ended. Have yet to call in a dog. I moved to Southern Colorado from Arizona and I am totally getting my butt kicked! In Arizona I would usually average about 10 to 15 depending on how much we got out.

Not giving up just yet..... Have a new snow storm coming in on Sunday/Monday. Gonna give it another college try

Re: Coyote total for the year

Dusted number 23 tonight after work I got off and only had enough time for one set up before dark. I called my first series and watched her wade thru the foot deep snow from about 700 yards she stopped and stared at 200 yards and i popped her.

I am headed out again monday to the new big chunk of land i got to hunt so hopefully i will add some more to my total and my new scope fund :-)

Re: Coyote total for the year

I honestly don't have a count, since we leave mange in the field and have already taken fur to "the man"
I know on a weekend back in Oct we dropped 19 on a Fri/Sat and this weekend we put down 11 so far.

I'd put the number close to 75 or so, with probably 65 on HD video. If we weren't filming, it would be well over 100+
