long shot on Coyote
« on: February 25, 2018, 07:47:31 PM »
   Saturday morning I went for a ride around the block. The Coyote crossed the road and after getting a little closer I used my 7mm Rem to try a shot. The rock pile was 671 yards and the Coyote was a little further away so I set the scope to 700 yards and held about 18 inches into a quartering wind. At the shot he dropped and kicked a little then lay still. A local guy watched me shoot and drove up to me and said if he hadn't seen it he wouldn't of believed of it. He then asked me a bunch of questions about my rifle and said he was hunting coyotes too but would not of even thought about trying a shot. A couple hours later I drove the snowmobile over to get the Coyote and ranged the shot at 735 yards.    Later in the afternoon I called a coyote in and missed it 5 times with my old .243. I was laying in the snow and shot before I should of. I BLEW IT

Notsams - Great story...it was the yote time to take a dirt nap...great shot with your 7mm Rem Mag. Only Dutch would attempted a shot like that. How could you see hime? was he moving in the snow?....what grain bullet did you use in the 7mm RM? Ouch, 5 times? well after the first shot, the yote put it into another gear getting away....how far was yote #2 away from you....you might want to think about a dope sheet and tape if to the inside of your buttstock for both rifles....

My "Mel Gibson shot" was on a antelope at 318 yards and again at 340 yards in high crosswinds winds 20+ mph. Thank goodness I have read somewhere many years before I went on that trip to tape a elevation (drop) and wind (drift) chart onto my Sauer 200, 25-06 buttstock....that is the only way I would have gotten that antelope....had the Leupold VX3 3.5-10X scope on 9X power, only way I could see him....and to beat all, the first and second shots were only 1 inch apart and they were a little far back (hit in the mid section of the antelope.....

BO   yote #2 was at about 200 to 250 yards. He was sneaking in trying to get downwind of me. I didn't have a rest so I layed down in the snow and it was very awkward to say the least. The Yote was in a crp field that has grown up to brush. I was hiding by a 3 wire fence and when I first saw him I knew I should crawl under the fence so I could use the post to steady the rifle but I didn't.   My .243 is sighted in 3 inches high at 100 yards and that puts it about 5 inches low at 400 yards, but I don't know where it hits at 250 yards so I need to shoot it at 250 yards to find out.            The Coyote I shot with the 7mm Rem mag was in the wide open field of snow. He thought he was safe but my rifle shoots very good out 800+ yards. The only bullet I shoot out of this rifle is the 160 grain Accubonds. It's a great bullet and I have a custom turret for that bullet.
