This was one of those rare mornings where everthing falls into place. I have called on this ranch numerous times with little success.
I guess if it worked out every time it wouldn't be such a rememberable experience ;-)
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.
Nice shooting! I know the pain of a jam when the second coyote is still out there in range.
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!
I changed to a 100g Nosler BT and it is drop dead deadly on coyotes and fox with very little fur damage, so far.
