My first longish range coyote 552yds

Well I guess to a lot of people this is considered medium range but I was pretty excited to beat my old record by 200yds.

I got this coyote that was laying down with a stiff quartering to me wind. Not sure of speed because I had misplaced my Kestral. Forecast called for 30-50km/hr but guessing it was around 20-25km/hr.

I had my Bushnell 4200 cranked up to 24X and number 4 mildot was the holdover. Held on the coyotes rear thigh and punched it behind the shoulder. Heard a nice whack but had to do a short recovery. The coyote was slightly quartering me so the bullet travelled to mid body exit instead of straight across.



I was shooting a Savage 12FV staggered feed .22-243Win. Shilen 28 in 1 in 8 twist using Retumbo and 80gr Berger VLD's for 3350fps.



Can't wait to get some more a little ways out there.

Any day you can take out some Coyotes is a good day no matter what range.

I'll try my best, actually would like to shoot a double on running coyotes out past 500yds. Two coyotes running straight at each other and take both as they pass by each other.

Really though I'll leave the running shots to the pros. Stationary broadside is what I wait for. The best running shots I have seen were on wolves at 300 and 515yds. Big high fives on those.
