Gotta love it when your day starts out with a bang!
« on: April 27, 2020, 09:25:17 AM »
I suppose I'm too early for the varmint challenge, but couldn't pass up the opportunity to apply a little YoteBgone to our yard.  Was sitting at the computer when I hear my daughter say those magic words from upstairs:  "Dad, there's a coyote out there"

Grabbed my little pop gun and snuck to the garage door, found him on a slow trot heading straight away, while our trusty watchdog raised her head up to look at me like I was a criminal for waking her from her nap in the sunshine.  Yote finally turned a bit and presented a shot at about 130 yds, then he decided it was nap time too.  Not a twitch.  It's gonna be a good day.

It was a young male Yari, I would assume one of 2019's pups.  Used a .223 on him, my first AR build.  60 grain Sierra Varminter hollow point reloads are not terribly fur friendly (not a concern this time of year of course).  Only a little hole going in but did quite a bit of damage on the exit.

Good job, Roger! I keep looking out of our windows, to see if I can spot a woodchuck or better yet  a coyote, but I haven't seen either one.
