Went coyote hunting with my oldest son this morning. The first one came in after about 5 min of calling and after I shot him my son turned the call to the distress call and the female came from over 400yds and I dropped her 30yds from her mate. The were both within 60 yds of me when they died! Temp was just above 0 with 4 in of fresh snow and 3-5mph wind. My kid complained all the way out about my lack of camo. So after we got back to the truck I asked him if he wanted to wear my camo next time he went out. ;-)
BTW I shot them both from under the tree just over my right shoulder and had just drug the female to where the male bit the dust.

Nice yotes. Look bigger than what we have here. The cows woke me up last night bellering like crazy so I walked out back and put the spot light on em and there were 4 yotes among the cattle. Of course they were gone by the time I got my gun out. What do you think them yotes weighed?

The male was heavy. 40 to 45 lbs. The bytch was not as well conditioned. she might go 35

No I didn't skin them. They are already blowing some coat and that 22-250 blew some big holes in them at that distance. I went back later to get my shooting sticks and there were 2 fresh sets of tracks going right by where I shot them. I hauled them to the dead pit so as not to contaminate the area. It is a well traveled course between their den sites and the rest of the ranch. They use a ditch back there like a Hiway!

Finished the day out hunting geese with my buddy in the San Louis Valley. It got a lot colder than that by dark! Found out that my Benelli SBE doesn't like to cycle when it's below zero, so the geese are safe for another year, and I will be douching out the SBE real good today.
The best part was when my kid told me that when he calls coyotes with his friends they all have a theory and most of them have proved to be wrong. I just told him do it the way you want and see how it works.......it worked and my son thinks that, I think, he is a pretty smart fella.....a very good morning!

Yep, I can see it now. 3wY and his son having to carry me back to the truck after I am frozen solid in the sitting position, nothing moving but my eyeballs. I ain't made for that.

Nice yotes 3way. Calling yotes is one of my favorite activities when I go out west. I have had many good hunts in the Owyhee desert out in Idaho. We don't have as many here in Tennessee but they tend to be bigger in size. Maybe it is the mild winters and abundant food or opportunities to mix with domestic dogs. I'm not sure. I have shot or trapped several males over 60 lbs. I saw one last week that was exceptionally large near the edge of town in the industrial park. It is definetly more fun to call out west......open space and big country. I love it! They won't usually cross open ground here to come to a call but take a route through the timber......shotguns with #2 buck or #4 turkey loads work good for those situations.
