    So I was on my weekly drive again last friday and to my suprise there was a coyote walking down the ditch next to the highway so i did my normal drive way past him, turn around get my gun ready and go back down to where I was him hoping to get a shot routine. well there he was, I pu.led up to him and he just stood there at 20 yards like he was my lab waiting for me to let the tail gate down. so in my excited high school girl frindzy I decided to shoot him in the head and totally blew right over him. he darted and again like an excited teenager shot into the brush i saw him go behind hoping to hit him and again a miss. not suprised I had missed I jacked another one in as he cam outon the other side of the fence, still only 50 yards away, i finally settled down and put one in his shoulders. geesh what a bunch of embarrasing shooting. leave it to me to blow the easy shots! anyway here he is. really nice coat for this time of year. too bad im not a hide hunter.

    Nice looking coyote. Better load up some more ammo if you plan on going hunting again using the same technique. :)

    Does the state of Wyoming have laws which make it unlawful to do the following:

    1. Have a loaded firearm (live ammunition in breech, chamber or magazine) in or on, or discharge a weapon from vehicle
    a. a boat unless the boat is propelled by muscular power or is at anchor and the person is hunting, or
    any kind of aircraft or vehicle whether it is moving or stationary.
    Note: Ammunition may be carried in a magazine that is not attached to the firearm.
    b. discharge a weapon within 200 yards or cause a projectile from a weapon to pass within 200 yards of any occupied building. Owners, occupants, or persons authorized by the owner or occupant are excepted, subject to local bylaws.
    c. discharge a firearm from or cause a projectile from a firearm to pass along or across:
    a) a highway,
    b) a road that is paved, oiled, graded or regularly maintained, unless
    - the road is held under any active disposition under the Public Lands Act or under an order under the Surface Rights Act, or
    - the person is hunting game birds with a shotgun under the authority of a licence.

    If Wyoming does then what you describe is an unlawful discharge of a firearm. Think of this as a cannon fodder for the animal rights activists and politicians. We as hunters do not need any additional pressures on the sport of hunting; firearms legislation. We as hunters have a responsibility of due diligence to follow the laws which pertain to our sport!!!

    get over yourself dude. im pretty sure animal rights activists arent looking up coyote hunting stories on the internet and if they are who cares. they have no shortage of things they use as ammo against us. But to answer your question. yeah everything I did was illegal not to mention i was probably in the city limits of sweetwater station, wyoming about a mile from the nearest house even thought the population is about 15. but guess what i do it all the time im not unsafe about it i dont shoot when there are cars around or towards buildings. I am not gonna stop either.

    The worst thing is that you should never take a coyote that dumb out of the gene pool. We need them to water down the intelligence of the rest. lightbulb

    Obviously you have never been to wyoming Steyr. You can drive down the road with your full beer sitting on the dashboard as your driving and no one gives a F#%k. Its how this country should be. Thanks for brushing me up on my hunters safety though. Cheers~

    @ TikkaMike,

    It sure is a good looking dog you got. I couldn't see where you hit in the photo? What caliber were you using?

    @ Steyr,

    You really need to take a trip to Sweetwater Station, WY to see why everyone is poking fun at you. And if Sweetwater Station is too crowded for you, maybe you could take side trip into rural WY on the outskirts of Jeffrey City like Sand Draw, Muddy Gap, or Crooks Gap. :D

    First of all, who spells idiot that way? Second of all, I think you're the idiot for spending that much time and effort on an internet hunter safety lecture.
