Umpire Farm s near Gerlach Nevada

I decided to drive to "Umpire Farms " today but first try out a road 5 miles before that called (not kidding)on the map " Bad ass" road. It was a waste of time. So made my first stand on Umpire Farms rd under a heavy snow fall. Three minutes into the stand a big old coyote trotted in from up wind of me 75 yds away. I should'ev barked at him but instead I fired 3 shots and heard the 3rd one hit.I stood up and he was rolling on the ground and howling and I put another one in him. Ran up to him to see big holes these 55gr V-maxes created but he still wasn't dead and still howling looking at me. Dang what a tough creature ! I finished him off with a shot to the head. Pictures to follow.

    That is a bit messier than I would have expected.

    Were the big holes from exits or from entrance splashes?

    Again, glad you got to shoot one...
