SBruce, Thank you for responding and in such detail...I appreciate that. Had never heard about yote contests. Pretty interesting, sounds like fun and sounds like they have all the bases covered to keep folks honest. Congratulations on 1st Place.
When I was a kid everyone seemed to hunt them and we had lots of deer. Now I see them all of the time and don't see many deer. I don't keep the pelts and like to try new bullet loads on them, the only issue is that I rarely recover a bullet.
Called him into me, he came running in and got into about 20' then he turned as he spotted my dog and ran, by the time I fired he was approximately 35'. I had been sitting in the shade and he had the sun in his eyes as he approached.
