Spring break, and I'm avoiding the crowds on the streams in favor of some quiet time over the honey hole. Been seeing a LOT of coyotes lately. Saw 3 yesterday. Two disappeared into thin air before I could take a shot...there's some defilade that aids in their getting away. The third that showed up managed to dodge two rounds out of my yote hammer. 225 and 425yds...both shots were a little high and I realized that my scope was dialed up 4 clicks...oops.
Adjusted fire and was out early this morning. Feed delivery truck was there and making all sorts of racket and I was thinking that nothing in its right mind would be around. WRONG!! First one took it's last bite for breakfast as the bullet dropped him at the table. Second showed up a little later. I tried to get this one to stop before hitting some thickets, but no luck. Turns out it was after the same thing the first one was after and died not more than 5 yards from the first. Both males, and the lighter of the two was loaded with ticks and other weird sores...blech!!
The farmer came down with his high-speed drone and flew it out into the field and snapped the above photo. No selfie this time...I was rushing to get these into the freezer...bone collections that serve in the name of education.
