Re: Longest Coyote Kill
Good shooting, guys! And, good question from Cold Finger. Many of you posted your ranging technique but it would be interesting to know how you all are getting your ranges. The 650 yard coyote my son shot was on the snow. Even with a carcass to range on, my Leica BRF's (1200 yard technology) couldn't get a reading. We had to range a standing cow but in those conditions it still took several tries to get a range even on an upright animal. I've since purchased a PLRF 05 to try for my 1000 yard coyote. From what I've seen of the PLRF, I think it would have bounced the 650 yard coyote or the carcass pretty easily in the snow but have never tried it in those conditions since. These were in flat fields. Broken terrain makes it much easier to hit a range. Please include your ranging equipment/technique for your shots. It might shorten our LR coyote learning curve.
