well that was messy

I have been deer hunting all week and had put a stock on a deer I ended up passing on. I decided since I was going to pass on him i would see how close I could get so as I am walking up a draw I see something looking at me above the brush. I pull up the Bino's and its a coyote. so I drop down with my rifle across my pack and cant see the coyote but his curiosity got the best of him and he took a few steps foreward and I could see half of his face ad his neck. I had my 338 win with 225 ttsx loaded in it. I wasnt sure of the distance I thought it was 2-300 yards so I put the cross hairs on the center of his skull and let one go...turns out it was 200 yards... No saving the pelt on this pretty Male.

good thing Barnes dont open on thin skinned game! this could have been Gory...

    Wow, nice shot! You don't get too many runners with shots like that.
