    While this was quite an interesting article. It reads like predator hunting 101. Considering that it isn's an equipment intensive way to pursue coyotes, and I am on a strict hobby budget, this article shines a ray of hope. I do have one question. Why is this method called pass shooting?

    Good article, and enjoyable to read.

    I've used this technique myself, but find it only works in certain terrain/cover when there is a relatively high coyote population.

    Controlled coyote population and too much sagebrush covering rolling hills with small ravines where I hunt them as of late. I could sit in one place high on a hill every morning and evening for a week and not see a coyote...gotta walk em out, call em in, or track em in the snow if I expect a sighting most of the time.

    Good article and good technique for lots of areas though.

    I guess I`ll have to do some more working. I do have a suggestion for your drop chart though. I zero the rifle ar 100 yrds. and set that at zero on the scope turret. I then zero ar 200 yrds., 300 yrds, ect and write the settings for each 100 yrds. range. If the target is 350 yrds out set your scope turret 1/2 way between the 300 and 400 yrds settins and you will be zeroed at 350. I also put the wind drift with a 10 mph wind for each yardage. That way you can easily figure the drift for 5 mph by simply dividing by 1/2, or as to the wind. Don`t forget to figure in wind angle. It sound hard and long, but with a little peratice you`ll do it in your head in less than a second.

    A Great Article, I always love the less is more approach along with articles that make you go.... oh yeah that makes sense.

    Everyday were out in the wilderness how many times have you ever heard a Rabbit squeal, and makes total sense that coyotes are on the move, covering as much ground as mentioned that coyotes so, only seems logical to lay up and wait.

    Waiting now for December.
