Wile E. Coyote down!
« on: November 26, 2016, 05:35:44 PM »
Went deer hunting this morning.  Nothing moving but around 8:30, I spotted some movement that I was certain was not deer.  It was two coyotes hunting mice.  they would nose through the grass and then jump on the mouse.  They were about 130 yds out.  As they made their way towards me, they would walk a little ways, stop and look.  Finally, they got close enough for a shot, and I put the crosshairs on the closest one.  It went down, but apparently got up and ran while I was getting out of my blind.  When I reached the stop, I could see clumps of hair, but no coyote.  I first looked around in the tall grass, then I started looking in the taller brush to the south, and just about 10 ft in, I found the dead coyote.  It was a female, so at least I put a small dent in the future varmint population.  It was about a 60 yd shot, with my 12 ga.  Yes, I know, definitely overkill, but coyotes were not my main prey.  I may have the hide tanned, depending on cost.

Good job Louie!
I took the one I got on opening day.
$75.00 bucks and I skined it.
The guy said he would have skined it for $5.00
It took me an hour and a half.
I should have let him do it.
Although I had never done it, so I'm glad I did.

Good job Louie!  That yote has some nice color - would make a great hide if you decide to have it tanned.  I've hit a couple over the years with 12 ga slugs too - she looks to be in pretty good shape for having an ounce or more of lead thrown at her.  I hit one in the spine with a slug about 30 years ago - darn near cut him in half.

I am having the hide tanned.  Saturday evening, I took the coyote to the guy that processes my deer, he's also a trapper, so I figured I could get some information from him.  I didn't get a chance to speak to him directly, but I did talk to him today.  He gave the coyote to a young man he has been mentoring on trapping, and the young man has already skinned the coyote.  When he gets enough hides, he will send them in to be tanned.  When he gets them back, he will call me.  I asked how much it's gonna cost me, and I was told about $40, which sounds very reasonable to me.  Now, the waiting part is gonna be tough.
