Re: Longest Coyote Kill

I got one a few weeks ago at 653yds. I've shot steel many times way further than that, but that was my first real long range animal. Ranged it, dialed it, held the wind and dumped it on the spot. 30 Gibbs. 155gr SMK. I was pretty happy about it.

Have shot a few at 350+ over the years with 22-250 with holdover guesses.

This was pre electronic consumer laser range finders. It took me 4 shots with the iron sights to get the on the desired impact point. With my new purchased Chinese SKS. I paid 68$ for it in the factory cosmoline. I could keep most of my shots in a 3'x3' square. Many of them in a 1'square.

Obviously that is in no way sniper accurate. But we were amazed at how well it shot with surplus ammo.

Hopefully, soon I can afford a long range rifle and scope so I can learn how to make the kind of shots y'all are doing. The math is kind of daunting to me so I'm looking at the Horus reticule and the Ziess 1000 reticule.

395yds. Remmy 700 with a Brux tube and tuned factory trigger in 270win. Trotting across the aflalfa field. Bang, flop. Tiny hole on the near side... big mess on the other side.

Re: Longest Coyote Kill

Doubled up this morning. Went out set up and started calling with my 13 yr daughter. I saw a Yote running across the wheat stubble at about 1000yds running straight to us. I wanted her to shoot so i kept calling and he stopped at 200yds or so. I told her to hold on him and right before i said shoot i saw two other coyotes on the hill the first one had came from I told her to hold off a sec. I ranged the yote at 619yds. I cranked the scope put the crosshairs on the one i was going to shoot. Both the coyotes on the hill were sitting watching the one in front of us. She shot rolled hers with her little 243 the one i was going to shoot stood i lit off the 257 WTBY and then a second later heard the bullet hit. It was a great morning we got 7 coyotes total today. I have pictures of hers it was her first called in she has shot a couple during deer season but never with me calling so it was cool. Got all of them skinned stratched fleshed and salted before i came in tonight so i will be busy tanning the hides this week.

How do i get a picture to post on here???

Thanks Fella's
