    Got a 5 pt the day before gun season with my bow that I grunted in, then went up to northwest MO and got this beautiful probalby 3 1/2 yr old 10 pt during the middle of the gun season. The gun is my pet Rem 700 LH LSS 30-06 Ackley with fluted Shilen 25" #5 taper barrel. This gun is just a death ray on deer. I have been using 150 gr BT, but I am going to try the Sierra 180 SBT. Hope to get 3000 fps, and should hold together better. The coyote was trotting through so I drew back and bleated and shot when he stopped at 35 yds.
    No long range shots this year, but the potential is there in north MO farm country (4 to 5 hour drive). Congrats on the kills so far and wish everyone good luck this year!

    Great looking deer and yote. Sounds like you’ve got that ’06 dialed in pretty good. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Great bowshot on the coyote and in my book 35 yds would be a long shot on a something the size of a coyote.

    Highly unusual but, I saw one just about like that one two winters ago behind the house. Missed its partner and was so shocked by its color I didn't another shot off. Was at about 30 feet. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Hunted for it the rest of the year and the next and never saw hide nor hair of it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    The picture came out dark (I was using a self timer). I had to mess with editing the color, brightness etc to get it to look good. The 'yote wasn't really unusually colored, just a good winter coat. Of course, that wouldn't explain the collar.....ha ha!

    I agree with charles on smackin all the coyotes we can ,I saw a pronghorn hunt where they showed coyotes doing sweeps for fawns and the hunters sat and watched.PATHETIC !
