Dead Coyote

I went out to hunting this past Monday and Tuesday. I did not see any deer or hogs other than fresh tracks that occurred overnight. I heard coyotes howling during the Tuesday morning darkness. I never thought I would see one show up at my feeder eating deer corn at sunrise. I saw two of them but only had a shot at this one at 106 yards. I shot him on the left side of his neck exiting out the right ribs. It made my hunt worth it after dealing with cold misty rain and 20-30 degree weather.

If you want to have some fun buy a cheap caller and call them fuckers in. Its funny as hell watching them dart in to what they think is a free meal.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

I haven't shot a coyote in years. I see them often, but somehow enjoy watching them more than shootin them.

Doc,

I was using a .308 with 170 gr. Federal Fusion softpoint. I was hunting deer but when coyotes are in the area, its a lost cause. They usually push deer away from your hunting area.

They are just very difficult to hunt. When I do see them, I am never in a position to shoot them. I'm seeing Bobcat and Coyote tracks all over there. They are a bunch of them out there and have taken its toll on our rabbit and turkey populations lately.

Sorry, to hear about your family cat. I tell you I shot a hog a few weeks ago and the coyotes had that hog stripped to bones in less than 3 days.

I agree. You have to give them credit on the smarts. I hunt a many of nights for hog and I hear those suckers all around me, howling and goin crazy over a fresh meal, but seldom do I actually see one.

Going to Llano next weekend and will be doing some calling.
The amount of fawns lost to predators annually is ridiculous. They did a controlled study and it is something like 40%. Kill them all!!!

I need to get a call so I can blast them. I've seen a ton on my property and they are pretty plentiful up here. Not much besides hogs and coyotes.

Yep. In the latest Predator hunting mag they had the actual numbers and it was insane the amount that was lost to predators.

Don't forget to stop in at Cooper's, and the Llaneaux Seafood house has a chicken fried steak with crawfish étouffée instead of gravy.

Give me a dollar.

I had the same thing happen on opening weekend. I had 2 yearlings and a large doe come down to the feeder and the large doe saw me and ran off. the yearlings were eating the corn when a coyote came up and ran them off. he started eating the corn, and paid the pirce of a .270 cal meal ticket to the throat.

I blasted one in South Carolina on Saturday morning. I was shooting free handed/standing --- 210 yards with my 30.06 (Marlin MR-7). My brother was standing there and was pretty impressed. Lucky shot, I'd say.
