Scent cover

Interesting about the non use of scent cover (I use scent eliminator). Around here the coyotes only come in down wind. You get the odd young pup that doesn't know any better, but most mature dogs will not let you use the wind.

Matter of fact, when I lived in Corpus and hunted that area they were so thick you didn't need cover scent. New Mexico hunting is much easier with cover scent. I have had dogs come in close down wind with scent eliminator but without it I'd be SOL.

I shoot a 22-250 Rem 700.
Here in OK most of my shots are under 200 yards. I like to git'em in close.
We started the Oklahoma predator hunters association in the spring of 2007.

My main gun is a Striker in 22-250 with an occasional hunt with my 223 RRA. Those long guns are heavy. ;-)
I use custom calls about 95% of the time gave up on using an ecaller. I like to keep it light and easy to move around.
I hunt wooded areas in WI in the SE (state forest) and E central WI (national forest).
Most are under 100 yds. SO far from 30 yds to 248.
My favorite hunting ;-)))

Mike

YoteFever, Tell me alittle bit about your Savage Striker hunting for coyotes. I have a 22-250 striker, too . Do you hunt off of sticks or a tall Bi-pod? Do you use a pistol scope or a rifle scope on it? Do you have an aftermarket trigger, we've tried adjusting the factory one, blaahh.

I got it from another silhouette shooter and he had a rifle basix kit that I installed, still not real happy with it.
I just put a McGowen 15" flutted barrel with a 9 twist. I just made it to the range with it and it looks like the 75g Amax worked the best. Will be headed 'up north' to test it out on live critters.
I use sticks with a Lupy rifle scope and it works great out to 248 yds so far.

Thanks, that sounds fun. I tried to eye up on a running coyote once with mine, but it has a pistol scope. Not much F.O.V there. I wished I had a 1-9" on mine, way more versitile. Merry Christmas
