Re: Equipment setup for calling night and day?
Night vision is useless if it's not universal. You, your partner and your dog have to have it....
Don't use a light that's too bright. I use a half million white or a million candela red.
For the most part, night hunting is really good for educating coyotes. My buddies and I kill probably 95% of what we call in the daytime.... Maybe 40% at night.... Except cat and fox... They're easier. The 40% is just because I'm not stupid enough to shoot eyeballs in the dark at 200 yards. That's how accidents happen.
Sometimes we use a lightforce walkabout with a red filter.
I shoot a Krieger barreled 6 WOA during the day with a mark 4 PMR.
And a 17 hornet at night with a Leupold 6x42 German #4 reticle. If I don't have a headshot at night, I don't shoot. Period. Fixed power scopes transmit light better.
During contests I shoot a 243 day/223 night. 75 gr and 35 grain.
One gun man? 22-250 50 gr SOFT POINT Bonded bullet.... 10x scope.
One light? The walkabout!
