Re: Longest Coyote Kill
My personal long for coyote shot was just over 400 yards using a .204 with a 35 grain Berger bullet. It was thw second of a double that just sat down and wouldn't budge no matter what calls I tried. There was little wind and it was sitting facing me from a sage flat. I was on a grassy hillside with a few scattered sage. I held on the coyotes nose and the coyote ran a few yards behind a clump of sage. I watched closely for several minutes and never saw the coyote leave so I walked down and found it right where it disappeared. The bullet had performed perfectly but it definitely left me questioning whether I had enough gun for that situation.
My son took a coyote New Years Day at 675 yards off a cow carcass. My Leica Geovids barely gave me a reading on an upright cow near the carcass the evening before. I can definitely see the benefits of the Vectronix PLRF that Broz used on his coyote. Anyway, Ben had his drops worked out when we got there at daylight the next morning. It's terriblel to have to live vicariously through your sixteen year old kid! Oh, .243AI with a 105 grain A-max on Ben's coyote.
