Re: Camouflage, Concealment and Coyotes

I would have to say that the truest thing said is that long range shooters don't need a lot of camo. The best camouflage I have ever found was 600 yards. Having said that it is still very important to shoot the Coyote and not just shoot at the Coyote, I like to keep the learning curve very steep for the Coyote because even at 600 yard they will learn if you give them more than two chances. I shoot 22-250 A.I. with a 1:8 twist and shoot 80 gr A-max. I have to say that camouflage is for the hunter and I am the first to admit I much more a shooter than a hunter. Having said all that the articular was still very enjoyable and a good read.

Good article, but after hunting with hounds and calling since 1974, i've found that movement will bust you faster than camoflage...

No arguments here, fellas. I'm not sure if you read the entire article or not. Movement is a key element in concealment. As far as scent goes, you'd better use the wind to your advantage. There is no effective concealment for scent that will overcome a coyote's nose. I joke that I'll buy scent-lock clothing for coyote hunting when I learn to hold my breath for 20 minutes on stand.

Good hunting to you guys!
