Wish I had some info on the 58s but in order to keep my 12 yr old fired up about coyote hunting
I have to leave my .243 in the truck. He doesn't take kindly to me shooting coyotes out from under him. Go figure. So I packed the shotgun and he had the M77 .223 shooting a 55 grain Speer sp. Fifteen minutes into the first stand this big male showed up and gave him a 125 yard quartering shot into the shoulder. The coyote was instantly flattened. Tiny entrance hole, no exit.
Five minutes into the second stand this guy came sprinting in from our left flank. I rolled him at 20 yards with a load of 3" lead BBs before he was able to eat the caller. He didn't even wiggle. It was nice to finally get to use the shotgun this year.
Third stand produced nothing. Eight minutes into the fourth stand this big round male came walking over the ridge towards us. Another quartering shot into the front shoulder with the .223 at 120 yards. The bullet entered on the point of the shoulder and at least part of it exited out of a dime sized hole in the top of his back. The pictures don't do him justice. Honestly the fattest coyote I've ever seen. It looked like he had just swallowed a watermelon.
The rest of the day was a bust but it was still a great time.
The boy's back in school this week so hopefully I can get out and get some info on the 58s.
