Re: How Many Coyotes Did You Kill In The Last 12 Months
In the last year a total of 3. Too many people where I live and too much hunting pressure. The coyotes are all "educated" which means that turning on a caller = sayonara hunters.... So I have sniped them and it is time consuming but better than nothing.
Usually nothing closer than 140 yards and for quite a while nothing closer than 250 yards all the way out to 450 yards. But I'm hunting a sheep farm. About 2/3 is in hay production and the coyotes don't like to come out into the open, so I am set up on a high spot and tend to shoot them right at the tree line at the edge of the fields. A tower stand would be better, but it is the usual battle of priorities.
I did get 4 deer this last season on the same property, including my first buck and I share the meat with the family on the farm and they help me with processing.
