coyotes
« on: February 10, 2019, 03:29:17 PM »
     I've been trying to thin the coyotes out in my area again this winter. I snared 2 and called 1 in and shot it on my land. I also shot 2 others on neighboring propertys too. A local farmer with cattle gave me permission to hunt behind his farm. 1 morning last week I saw 9 coyotes behind his farm. Yesterday morning I shot 1 at about 750 yards with the 6mm Creedmoor. It ran off but I could tell it was real sick. It ran very slowly for about 500 yards and disappeared in a field ditch. It was -20 and the snow is deep so I didn't go after it. This morning I saw 5 coyotes and 2 fox. I dropped a coyote on my 3rd shot with my .243 at about 400 yards. It was still alive but laying in the field so I got in the pickup to drive a little closer but it got up and started walking away very slowly. It layed down again in a low area and all I could see was its head every so often. I finally got another shot at about 500 yards and missed with the.243 again. I pulled out the 6mm Creedmoor again but I couldn't get a shot because he was in line with a rock pile and I was afraid of ricochets. He layed down again about 600 yards away. I could see the side of him was covered in blood. The cattle were bellowing and I left the area for about 20 minutes but when I came back I couldn't see him again. It was -20 again this morning. next weekend it is suppose to be warmer so I am going to go into the area and try call them in.

Sounds like fun there, in the hills around here we are lucky to get a shot at a yote over 100 yards. Most are in the 35-50 yard range.

Keep at it sounds like you are knocking them down with some long shots. Around here a long shot is maybe 300 yds in most places.
If it's brown it's down

That sounds like fun.  Having said that, I would prefer a 100yd shot as opposed to a 400-500 yd shot. The two coyotes I have shot were at 50 yds, with a 12 ga slug.

Whew, 9 coyotes in one morning!  Yes, I would say they definitely need to thinned out.  Sweet shooting in those conditions and at those extended ranges.  Best of luck knocking a few more down.

I saw somewhere that you may have a hybrid ( coy-wolf ) and they are bigger .

I read that to. I also saw the WI DNR is admitting the wolves here are also breeding the yotes. JUST WHAT WE NEED.

Yep, I could not find that article. Based upon how big that deer was and the mess the pack made I would not be surprised if it was one of those mutants

the yotes here will pick the bones clean, but not rip the bones off. it's a perfect skeleton when they finish. wolves won't leave anything
