Yotes (and my wife) gone wild!
« on: May 23, 2016, 07:09:45 AM »
I had one heck of a week last week.  I got my deer head back, got two of my ducks mounts back, killed a hog and leveled three coyotes.  Last Friday morning I chased a sow in the field and harvested her at 175 yards.  I threw her in an unused spot in my field 350 yards from the house.  Saturday afternoon I noticed three coyotes heading across the field toward the dead sow.  I told Sonya we could keep the slight rise in the field between us and the coyotes and put a sneak on them.  As we slowly crested the rise, I saw the top of the back of one along with it's ears.  It finally moved enough to see its whole body so I took the shot with the .22-250.  It dropped in its tracks.  Ten seconds later one went running across the field at break neck speed.  I heard the crack of Sonya's .204 and instantly the yote dropped.  I couldn't believe it.  She threw up a hail mary and it worked, 275 yards running and she connected.  Was it luck...of course, do we care...negative!  Finally the last coyote came out confused with all of the commotion and she dropped him at 125 yards in his tracks.  This is the first time we have ever taken yotes with the .204 and it worked like a charm.  Lastly, we watched two more yotes come to the dead hog later that afternoon, but they never got close enough for a shot.

Hogs and coyotes are both detrimental to whitetail deer...Keep up the good work.

WoW!! Fantastic shooting!  That must have been some wild fun.  I wish we could shoot coyotes year 'round.

Hey, what load was she shooting from her .204?  What rifle/scope?  Did it really drop it in it's tracks? 

Keep having fun!

Nice shooting KB and Sonya!  That is gettin it done!  I love it.  @--0--0118

Nothing wrong with a .204.  275 yds is stretching it out but that shot must have connected somewhere special! Awesome!

Jaeger - She was shooting 40gr Accutip-V Boat Tail from Remington.  The rifle is a Savage with a 3-9X40 Simmons scope.

Russ - It was a spine shot and it required us to dispatch him with another round.

Jaeger - Her second one dropped in his tracks also and was not a spine shot.
