    Did you shoot that first one in the head? Bleeding from the ear? What's up with his skint tail? How about the rest of the story? Calling? Over Bait? Stalking? Evidently your pretty good at this. How about some tips posted under the thread Coyote Hunting Tips. Thanks.

    The bottom coyote was bedded down around 220 yds & when I started calling he popped his head up & I took head shot, went in his eye & out his ear. Tail was normal, prolly just full of burrs. Other was called using pup distress, chest shot. Had a 3rd called in perfectly & I stopped it at 150 yds for my buddy but he missed & it took off, I don't like taking running shots to educate them, most times a single miss can be called in another time later date.

    Love hearing about that "sleeper" 6 Creed! I have used it on a groundhog at only 90 yards; but the devastation of the 105 HPBT was dramatic! Have also taken it West for prairie dogs and it will reach waaay out there and tag em hard! Congrats to you for the fine yote kills. That's one animal I really, really want to whack!
