WOLVES!!!!!.....I would love that option!
I have actually thought about a guided trip somewhere to just do the wolf thing.
The calendar year is some 53 days old and I have 21 coyotes down.
I have pretty much been out every morning since the cows have started dropping calves around here.
Almost all of my shooting is "road hunting", patroling the areas where the local ranchers are keeping the cows. I have calls also, but I HATE that noisey crap!
These dogs are savvy, and run several hundred yards when they see a truck.
We just stop, get out, set up a rest and wait a few minutes. Their curiosity gets the best of them, and they eventually expose themselves.
Inside 200 yards, they get the .204, anything beyond that and it's the .220 Swift.
On windy days, I just take the .243 with 58 gr Hornady VMax, or the 100 gr Light Magnums.
I am pretty much Hornady's best customer. I love their factory loads....they all shoot "minute of coyote" in my rifles.
I quit reloading several years ago when I quit benchrest shooting. I still own 3 rifles that I have to reload for, since no factory stuff is available.......I have a few loaded up, so I doubt I will have to borrow a loader.
Anyway, hope the weather breaks up for you soon and you can get out amongst 'em.
