    My calling partner, Jim and I attended the annual Campbell County Coyote calling contest again this year. It was the 16th annual event held in Gillette, Wyoming. It is the same one we took 1st place in back in 2006 with a total of 13 dogs.

    Anyway, it started Friday night and ran to Sunday at 2pm. It is a 2 day/night event. This year, a total of 55, 2 man teams entered the contest. It ran Dec. 5th thru the 7th.

    We took a total of 12 coyotes this year to win 3rd place. First place was 19 coyotes and 2nd place was 13 coyotes. The top 10 teams got paid.

    The FOXPRO FX5 is our go to call !! :cool: It draws them in like they were on a string.... ;)

    We used Lightforce spotlights and Nightforce scopes. The lights are every bit as good as their scopes. If you are gonna call at night these two are a must have !!

    We were shooting 243 Ackley Imp. and 243 WSSM Oly Arms AR-15





    This is my calling partner Jim with our first night and Sat. day haul of seven.

    Well, that's only half a truckload. I suspect if you had killed a whole truckload you would have come in first.

    Congratulations

    Nice. What sounds do you use, the sequence, and what do you do with your volume? I know this is definately being nosey but I have a Foxpro and try a lot of different stuff with it. We are way down on numbers right now because of mange so there is a lot of skill and luck to get things to work. Unfortunately I am short on both.

    How many times are you able to get a quick follow-up shot? Do you think the semi-auto AR helps?

    Thanks.

    My callling partner owns and shoots the AR. Yes, it does help. Many times we have called in 3 to 5 coyotes on a single stand and it was the reason we'd have more than 2 on the ground.

    It is a beneifit as much as the shotgun I keep in my lap while shooting the bolt rifle. picked up doubles with it some too... even got 2 with one shot once. #4 buck in 3 1/2 mags is hard on them :-0
