    Man I love living in Wyoming. The sun was out and the winds were light so I loaded the Savage 204 in the truck and packed some gear.

    About a 110 yard shot

    That 204 is a wicked little round, 32gr Noslers a 3950FPS sure open those little guys up. They arent out in force yet but every once in a while I would be able to sneak up on one or two sitting out in the sun and get a 100-150 yard shot.
    I saw an awesome dark colored coyote walkin around an old dog town at about 350 yards but didnt get a shot and left my FoxPro at home. By the time I realized what it was and got set up, he realized what I was and took off. By the time I got him in the cross hairs he was heading for the next county and about 700 yards out.

    Congrats on this years first p-dog. What scope do you have on your 204? Also what part of Wy do you live? I'll be moving to the Sundance area in a few years.

    The scope is just a Mueller 4-16x, it has a large dot in the center of the crosshair, not exactly what this 204 needs on it but it was a spare scope I already had. I would like something with a target cross hair but for hunting coyotes and p-dogs at close range it works well.

    I live in South West Wyoming, Rock Springs.

    The best years of my life was when I lived in Wyoming. I still missed the trout fishing , varmint shooting, pronghorn, mule deer, and elk hunting, backpacking, and all the public land to do it in.
