Re: Longest Coyote Kill

My longest yote is only 362 steps (no rangefinder) about 12 years ago. Made a hasty range estimation based on the rough 440 yd perimeter of the 40 acre field, held over and planted it dead center of the sternum on the small coyote as it stood facing me. Used my Savage Tactical 7mm STW with 140 gr ballistic tip shooting prone with a bipod.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.

Re: Longest Coyote Kill

Neat to hear the stories guys. I'll never forget that dog Eric, man that was a haul and a half to get him to the top of that butte--and then skinned!

Re: Longest Coyote Kill

880 yards (he was standing right at the half mile fenceline) with my savage model 10 in 308 win, wind was 22mph left to right, 20 below zero, last February. Held 8 mil high and 6 mil left, made a small prayer to the hunting gods, squeezed the trigger and 1 1/2 seconds later the unsuspecting song dog spun around 5 times ran ten yards then piled up dead as a doornail...
I think I was almost as suprised as the coyote was.... Previous to that my furthest one shot kill on a coyote was 740 with my 25-06, and that was on a windless morning everything was perfect... Took the time to get a good rest, range him and dial in my elevation...
I never actually expected to hit the bugger With just hold overs and all in that wind (I know that probably isn't the best hunting etiquette... .... Shooting when you aren't sure you're gonna make a clean kill and all). However it just amazes me how sometimes when you remove all that pressure on yourself and overthinking the whole shot, then the muscle memory and subconscious take over and everything just works.
I have been known to clean miss coyotes at 100 yards on gimme shots on occasion because of the whole overthinking it problem...

Re: Longest Coyote Kill

My longest Coyote kill was this year, the last weekend of August. It was only 83 yards. OK, that is not really "long range".... Unless you do it with a bow and arrow! We were elk hunting in Oregon and on the way out we spotted a coyote mousing. He never saw us. My buddy ranged him at 83, so I drew back and let the arrow fly. Wack! He went about 150 yards and that's all she wrote.
