It’s been snowing and windy for the past couple weeks so I haven’t been out. Most backroads are blown in, so I don’t have many stands I can even get to. Checking the forecast, this morning was supposed to be -40 with the windchill, and relatively calm with a 5mph wind from the south. Perfect to call a dairy farm I’ve had great luck at.
I got a bit later start than I’d like, arriving about 1/2 hour after sunrise. Walking in 1/4 mile to where I wanted to set up, the snow was blown in deep in spots, but there was a ton of coyote tracks and trails. I set my call about 40 yards out into the field, and had just got back to the brush line when a coyote howled in the next quarter. I howled back and after a couple replies they went silent. I turned on Bebe cotton tail at a lower volume, and it wasn’t long before I saw a line coyote coming to the call, about 600 yards to my northeast. He was taking his time, and as I’m hunting in a rimfire only zone I was using a .17 WSM and needed them close. Eventually the big male stopped about 80 yards downwind of the call facing me and he fell over stoned at the shot. I switched to pup distress and it wasn’t long before another coyote came out in the same spot the first had come out. It was moving faster, and was followed by a third about 80 yards behind it. They worked their way in, and when they got to about 100 yards I shot the lead coyote, again facing me, and again it fell over dead. The third coyote stopped for a second, then it kept coming, and I shot it about 5 yards from the second.
This is my first ever triple, and super happy to have kept things together and been patient enough to make it happen. I was a bit of a BMag sceptic as it’s such a clunky gun, but it certainly has the power for coyotes if you shoot them right!

This is the farm I deer hunt as well. It’s fall rye and the other day we counted 50+ deer in 40 acres. Coyote hunting got me access, so it’s a great spot all year! Keeps the farmer happy and the deer safe.
