We set out again this weekend for some coyote action, packing the HD cameras and a new stick by Chad Dixon at Long Rifles Inc. Some fresh powder, cold temps and not much pressure yet, has provided us with some excellent footage yet again.
Disclaimer: These are all still shots taken with an HD video camera, the real HD video footage of these hunts may give you a full fledged halfer ;)
First set of the day,
setting up on a sand-hill overlooking a meadow,
we spotted what we thought was a lone dog...
having the sub zero temps we've been having, this dog responded to the distress, exactly how we wanted her to...
This one came in next but held up about 150yds out... simple shot with the new hammer LongRifles Inc. Just built us!
the 3 this set provided us with,
This one is hard to explain, the HD video is not only worth 1k words, but 1K pictures as well, simply because the following does not show the action of us using a combination of spot/stalk/ambush, combined with our Reese Outdoors handcalls that got us our quad @ this set. Here we are below, A single file line to keep a low pro through some rough terrain, working our way slowly into what turned out to be an amazing set.
slowly gaining some elevation on a knobby point, we glassed before making a set,
using a closed reed call, from Reese Outdoors, we lured the first victim out of the brush.
what happened next was nothing short awesomeness, running 3 suppressed 22-250's not a single spoiler was fired, here was our FFP as seen from the location of one dead dog.
zooming out, you can still see us in the middle of the picture... or maybe not.
a fully zoomed out screen shot of where the third coyote was taken, by us across the ridge (we are still in center of the picture)
My man Keith sent this pill right between the eyes at 235 yds, and seconds later, sent another into the back of the head of a runner at 265...
Last set of the day, provided us a double, along with some coyotes that committed, maybe a bit to aggressively,
keep it comin,
his final stance before the kill shot.
coyote number 2 closes in,
he never knew what hit him.
Thanks for the view fellas, hope you enjoyed it!!! All this footage will be brought to the screen, either by HD youtube, or a MUCH better DVD than our first!!! We've gotten some amazing footage the past couple days, and the quality of the shots are phenomenal!!!
GET YOUR CAN ON.
