I began coyote hunting in late October. So far my partner and I have killed roughly 30 coyotes this season with the best yet to come. Here is a pic of a double we called in and shot. Also shows a good pic of the kind of custom rifles we shoot.
Not so well. I just got started though. It's been warm and windy here for what seems like forever now. We're suppose to get some colder weather in a couple of days though. Hopefully things will turn for the better then.
I just made a new call the other day too, and if they can resist it, I'll be surprised! This thing sounds awesome.
Havnt had too much time to go yet so I have just been going out around my house. Actually, I have sat in the same stand twice so far and I have gotten two coyotes. So not too bad! I already posted a pic of the fist yote but it was on the main forum. I will post the one that I shot this evening here. Was shot at about 100 yards. I am beginning to be a super big fan of the 6.5 Grendel AR. With the 100 grain ballistic tip, the coyotes are anchored when you hit them even if you get an off shot on one. I hate hitting one a little far back and watching them run off. I like to get the satisfaction of seeing my kill and what it did to the animal. The Grendel has been hitting like a HAMMER! It is not fur friendly but I dont keep the fur. Just do it to try to help out the deer population around here.
My Grendel set up is so light in recoil thanks to the brake that I can see the yote get hit and fall. Its pretty awesome.
I haven't been able to call any in...I've probably tried 10 stands with no luck. I've seen probably 12 just driving around on dirt roads in the desert and I've shot at two. I missed the first one due to a stupid mistake of putting the wrong yardage pin on him and shot over his back. The next one wasn't so lucky, and he was my first coyote with my 300 WSM at 240 yards. I don't think I'll shoot anymore with the WSM until summer hits and their coats aren't as pretty.
Just got out for the first time last Friday morning. Called this adult female in, she arrived in just under 4 minutes and was rewarded for being so prompt. 100 yards, 1 shot, with Ruger MkII .223, 3440 fps with a 50 grain V-max. Don't get many "long" shots calling in my country, lots of trees.
.264 Win. Mag. ; 257 Roberts; .223 Remington and many others.
