Doubled on Dogs

This was one of those rare mornings where everthing falls into place. I have called on this ranch numerous times with little success.
I called, they answered, and came running. Decided to take the male when he was just over 200yards because the wind started to swirl a bit. As I was ejecting a round it hit my sleeve and fell back in front of my bolt. (Jam)
I was trying to stay calm as the second coyote was running straight away. I had to tip my rifle upside down and then rechambered a round. Got my gun positioned and took the shot as she was running over the hill below. Then i saw her tumble forward in a heap. 267 yards.

I was using my 243 shooting the 95gr Bergers. As you can see in the photo this round can be hard on fur. It entered just behind the sholder and you can see where it came out, wow. Second dog was hit in the back of the neck. Made my day!

Just wanted to share.
More to come!

    Very nice! Good job staying calm. I'm spending the week from Christmas to new years in northern WI and I'm bringing my freshly snow-camo'd ar I hope do do half as good as you!

    Awesome shooting! Yeah, the 95 gr Berger might not be classified "fur friendly" but a dead coyote is a dead coyote! Congrats.

    People don't understand it but I feel the same way. Don't get me wrong--I'll sink my time and energy into my big game tags but after a few days of big game hunting, I'm ready to call go call some coyotes! Having all winter to do it doesn't hurt anything either. A week of deer or elk hunting doesn't get me through the year. Good luck this week end. Post up some more results.
