Re: Trying to get into coyote hunting. . . sort of lost

If you're in an agricultural area, look for animal producers as places to hunt. It doesn't matter if it's chickens, pigs or cattle; when these animals are raised in quantity it will attract lots of coyotes. Around here, it's mostly cattle so I scout for coyotes by looking for cattle producers. When I've found them, I've found coyotes, guaranteed. And as a bonus, you can also guarantee that you've found a landowner who wants his coyotes shot.

You might also want to check out coyoteschool.blogspot.com as an educational source.

That is my experience as well...

Turns out we are heading over to Alberta to visit the in-laws for Christmas they have a pig farm appr 3/4 mile south and cattle ranch right across the road...

I don't have to go far to find coyotes there last time I was out I watched 7 bedded down 500 yards behind the house (taking my 6mm-284 this year for these guys) and only walked 300 yards from the house across the road to set up shot the first one @ 40 yards it came in from over 500 yards used my Primus Ki-Yi call taking my Foxpro FX3 and Jack in the Box decoy this year...

Rifles I'm taking this year are...

Robinson Arms XCR-L with 18.6" barreled uppers in 223 loaded with 60gr Sierra HP's & 6.8 SPC loaded with 95gr TTSX
Sako 85 Grey Wolf 22" barrel in 22-250 loaded with 52gr Speer HP's & 55gr Ballistic Tips
Older made in Germany Voere long action 22" barrel in 6mm-284 loaded with 70gr Ballistic Tips

Here is the coyote I shot 300 yards across the road from the house used my T/C Contender carbine in 223 loaded with 40gr V-Max @ 3400fps (leaving it at home this year also have a 204 Ruger barrel for it now) temp was -34 C = freaking cold...
