Re: Need some advice

Hi Nathan223, set-up sounds great... just add a few decoy items and those dogs won't be able to resist. In Alaska ALL furry things are season and bag regulated. Some areas more so than others. No coyote shooting from May to August... hides are too valuable to 'shoot and release' in the off season. I use a Savage in Ruger .204 with 32 grain hp and chest shoot. We have a growing number of wolves also and at $400.00 to $1,000.00 for prime pelts I switch to the 40-Grain Berger HPBT for deeper destruction on the plumbing. Whole furs, not furs full of holes bring in needed income for a lot of us so we try to avoid exit holes even if it means a missed shot. Montana decoys canvas coyote full-color are so irresistible to old Wiley they almost seem cheating. Try them set out with a chicken or turkey wing hanging from a limb or pole over them ( check with Game regs first ) next to your FoxPro speaker. Put the decoys at 90 degrees to one another so Wiley has a full-body view from any angle of approach, get settled down 30 to 50 yards away with a clear field of fire to the decoys and be ready to shoot BEFORE you make your first call. I've seen them come so fast that you have to on track or they will literally tear-up your set. Young and dumb are easy ones to take any time... old and wise toss everything out the window when they see feathers and the silhouettes. Unbelievable to say the least. Have great shooting and keep your powder dry, Bllly

I use the FP Prairie blaster, with the included decoy, and or with my quiver critter if on uneven terain. The volume and control is outstanding. As for a .223 load, the 55 gr. Vmax is a great round if you liek the exit wound, but if not, the varmint grenade is awesome, with dead right there performance.
