    And I found Wile E. Coyote on the prowl...for geese...
    Wile E. thinks they are duck-billed...web-footed Roadrunners.

    Coyote photo was taken in SW Wyoming - near HWY 191.

    I only shot him with the camera.

    I shot a 'yote with my S&W .44 about a year ago - out in the hills near Riverton, WY.
    240-gr. Remington JHP @ 1,400 fps - what a mess - he was about 30-yards away. (From 1st base to second...)
    He was scrawny - mangy - unhealthy looking...

    I shot a wide buck like that one last year his daddy near took the lead but my decoy blew over and they spooked . Dam saskatchewan wind The one I shot was alot smaller but I had guessed him in the mid 70 s and he woulda been but I lost One circumference under the prong and it cost me 7 to 8 inches . He scored just under 70 . I watched the big guy for 2 hours 2 days before the season and then messed up my hunt lol . 100 yard muzzle loader for any decent goat is darn good. Here is my buck [​IMG]

    Not to many people would pass him up and I probably should have waited until the bigger one came back for a second chance. Notice this buck has the rare fighting back spurrs . [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] My friend shot this one an hour after me on the same day scored 79 6/8
