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.

Coach you still gotta go one better than that, from the story of killing two coyotes with an aluminum rod, I read. hee hee hee

Re: Unusual Coyote kills?

Yeah, my hunting buddy and I occasionaly get competitve. It then becomes a fire first game, then giggle like a schoolgirl while the other attempts running shot. Which is then followed with an "I showed you" or long string of cussing in frustration. Lol

Re: Unusual Coyote kills?

Howdy,

No sir, no Barnes bullets. Just 150 Nosler out of a 7WSM and my son shoots 130 Nosler out of 270.

Boy I hope to even get a chance to duplicate that some day!!!

Best to ALL of you!

Coach

Re: Unusual Coyote kills?

Oh Yea ,, 270 my favorite long range rifle.
130 gr Yes
Mine is a Model 700 action and everything else is built around it.
An Old gun smith in 1978, by the name of Barnet, in Pasadena TX made it.
Made the stock and put a Douglas barrel on it. scoped 44 mm, with a paralax adjustment. It's not only beautiful but deadly, if you can see it, you can shoot it.

I have shot coyotes out to 400 yds running, with this rifle. The first coyote i shot at in tx, was with the 270 and that critter was moving, and zig zaggin. It took me 3 shots.
My son was laughin because I was a cussing a blue streak the way he was moving.
LOL... It was trying to get my chickens in daylight. I grabbed the rifle and stepped out the door and he was already moving a 100 yds. shot & missed . put another round in , he's 200 or more yds. now I missed again WTF. So i load another round and I can barely make him out now, he's so far away, cranked the scope up and followed him on his turn and wham! got him ,, hee hee hee. It was a standing shot too.
That was the longest shot for me.

Howdy,

You better beleive it counts!!! Good job SBruce. I once ran one down with an old pickup. Later that day I fixed three flats from mesquite thorns though. I still think it was worth it. Lots of FUN!

Best to you and good shooting.

Coach

Re: Unusual Coyote kills?

Snomobile is great fun, but kinda hard on belly pans. Doesn't hurt a quad one bit. Kinda dangerous on a dirt bike, but what a rush!

Now if I could just figure out how to shoot a pistol with one hand (the weak hand to boot), then I could just ride up beside them and blow em off their feet without busting up the belly pan of the sled.

What a blast! Sometimes, if the snow is over a couple feet deep, it just mashes em down into the snow and they'll get up and run the other direction in the track. Then I gotta turn around and go at it again.....reminds me of that old carnival game where you hit the pop ups with a mallet and they just pop back up again.
