Re: Unusual Coyote kills?
During early June of this year, my eldest son and I saw two wild hogs in the wheat field west of my house. We each chose a hog, and I counted down from five to zero with the intent that we should fire simultaneously at "zero." The two hogs were working and walking around and at the time to fire, "zero", they were standing one in front of the other. Our shots rang out as one LOUD shot and both hogs went down. Range about 260 yards. We drug them out of the field to the edge of a mesquite wood about 300 yards from my back porch. 4 days later, I saw a coyote on the carcasses. I ran into the house and got my rifle, sat down at the table on the back porch, put the bipod legs down and rested my elbow on one of the chairs and just watched for a few seconds. The coyote would look up and all around then his head would go out of site behind the hog and he would feed about 5 seconds, then the whole thing was repeated. I steadied, fired the shot, and when I came back from the recoil, nothing was there. No coyote, no tail wagging, no nothing. I walked out there and to my astonishment there were TWO dead coyotes lying there one behind the other. Both mine and my sons shots had gone through the first hog killing it, into the second hog killing it, and then I had killed two coyotes with one shot feeding on their carcasses. Talk about your double double!!! Oh, the best part is that my wife witnessed the whole thing.
