Fawn killer down
« on: March 23, 2018, 08:33:25 PM »
So there I was this evening, sitting at the dining room table after supper, watching ten deer in the back meandering around my food plots when all of a sudden they start acting nervous and turning back to the woods.  Was watching them through my binoculars from the table, when I see something coming across the yard right behind the deck.  Figured it was the dog or one of the cats, but refocused and see a pair of yote ears just above the railing.  Happened to have my 10/22 in the corner (have been struggling with a feral cat lately) so grabbed it and a mag and headed for the door (any gun is better than no gun).  As I head to the door I see there's actually 2 in the yard.  Snuck out the front door and around the corner and still see one sniffing around the woodpile about 40 yards out, got a good view of the back of her head and neck and squeezed one off.  The plain Jane 40 gr solid point dropped her in her tracks.  Couldn't see the other one so went back in to get some shoes and gloves.  Go out and realize I spined her, she could only move her head.  A quick shot to the melon took care of that.  Picked her up to take her to a gully in the back and see that other one trotting out of the woods about 100 yds out.  By the time I drop the first yote and shoulder the gun it's back in the woods.  Decided to grab a call out of the garage and see if I can pull it back.  Started some pup distress, after a few minutes didn't see anything so decided to take care of the dead one.  Looked to the west and there's one about 150 yds out staring at me, dead downwind.  It turned and hit the afterburners, the .22 lr couldn't catch up, not surprised.  At least have one down.

OK, I gotta ask - what was that yote doing in your undies?   --099-780  --099-780  Seems like that'd be enough to kill anything, no?
