    Allen: I just dug up your article and really enjoyed it! I must have drank some of that water too! A few years back I shot a nice four-point buck and a five-point bull elk with relatively calm dispatch. But, when the first coyote came to the call, Coyote Fever about overtook me! We call coyotes all winter long but it takes them a little longer to prime-up here so we usually start hunting them in October. Thankfully, October is almost here. I'm worried about starting the DT's if I don't get out and call some coyotes! I also shoot a .204 when calling coyotes but I use Berger 35 grain bullets. My son usually has his .243AI along also for the occasional long shot. Anyway, thanks for the fine article. Hope you get a truck load of coyotes this "season"!

    Tim....That sounds like a good combo. My son and i usually carry 2 different guns depending on the terrain. I am getting itchy to star killing the little devils, in fact i started a little early on one smarmy dog that had the timerity to think he was out of range here in my back yard. whacked him @ 460 with the 6x284. Good hunting! AJ

    Allen,

    I am hooked, but very undereducated regarding coyotes. I shot my first two off of a gut pile this year and now its all i think about. I would love to take a lesson or three from you if you are ever willing to share information. Please let me know either way.

    I have been hunting coyotes for 45 years, I can tell you 2 things to make sure you do everytime. Watch the wind constantly, remember you are hunting dogs with the best nose there is, second stay concealed , stay in the shadows and always wear a face mask, it always amazes me on these predator programs how many of them do not conceal their face.
