Running Yote

I just started hunting these dogs in South Carolina and had a yote run for about 30 yds down a ravine. I am hunting in mountainous territory. I us a 22-250. My loads are a 50 gr nosler b-tip at 3500 fps. it was a verry bad shot in the guts. My Greman Sheppard finished it off for me. Have any of ya'll had one run like this?

Re: Running Yote

heck yes. They are tough as nails. I shot one with my AR a month ago as he was running away. I tracked a decent blood trail till dark:30. Then I and a friend took it up in the am again. About a mile away we lost it. On the way out we saw a yote mousing in a wheat field below us. So we went to the truck an got a rifle. Then set up and dumped him. It turns out it was the samer yote. The night before I had hit him high in a rear leg, and put a hole through an ear as well... Yep you guessed it, it was one of those "spray and pray" deals.

Anyway the last two have been with the .338 and 300 Bergers. Never tracked them far...

These critters are extremely tough. I have made good shots and have had them run 20 or 30 yards. They also camo real well in brush making them hard to see after they fall.

Thanks guys. I thought I had gone nuts. I guess a dead yote is a good yote. The good thing is my dog is 95 lbs and runs like the wind. My 7mm rem mag is goin on the next hunt.

That 250 will get the job done. No need to burn all that powder.

Re: Running Yote

That is true. will a 40 gr v- max do or should I stick with the 50 gr? Max distance is 200 yds.

Either one will do if you hit them more toward the vitals. But if it were me I would either have some 50's or 55's in it. The larger bullest will do a bit better in wind, but yoy probablt wont notice a difference at 200 and less.
