I was deer hunting today when this ratty-looking coyote showed up at 75 yards. When I got within 30 yards of his carcass, I could smell the nasty thing. :barf:
He flipped once and was done. 240 gr. bullets win out over nasty coyote.

(I'm not sure if this should be here or in the hunting section.)

Is that an investarms muzzleloader? Nice job.... when you said you could smell it, I'm surprised you put your gun on it... :D

Tell me how you loaded the scope on that thing...

You are smarter than I was. My gun stunk for about half an hour after that. :(

The gun is an old Sile Hawken Hunter that I put a Mag-spark on in place of the nipple. That way I can shoot Blackhorn 209 with 209 primers.
The scope is a 4x Leupold Compact on see-through rings and the hammer was heated and bent to allow for the scope.

It's a nice looking gun. How do you like the Mag Spark with the 209's? I've tried them before with regular pistol primers and it worked fine there.. and sooo much cheaper than caps..

I like your setup!

Aloha... :cool:

Most every coyote I've killed and got close to smelled sort of skunky.

I want to get one of those things with my 1860 Army so bad I can, well, taste it. :eek: Saw one this summer out ground hog hunting for a split second but it wasn't in sight long enough for me to draw a bead on him.

Good shooting Bob!!!:)

Rattus:
The Blackhorn powder is difficult to ignite and 209 primers are almost mandatory. I have had no issues with it although I've used it for over a year and a half.

Hellgate:
This one didn't smell skunky, he smelled like an outhouse pit.

Wow...lots of snow in Central Florida :).

Good job taking another sheep/cattle/chicken killer out of circulation.

I live a the foot of a mountain in north central Phoenix and those nasty little buggers come down off the mountain to prowl for cottontails and the cats my neighbors let out to roam at night.
I think they have a musk gland, i scared one in my front yard early one morning and the whole area stank for about an hour.
Nice shootin.

The chupacabra is a mythical hispanic creature that's supposedly been sighted many times in Texas lately. They've shown evidence of something strange looking. It looks like a hairless coyote, but it doesn't seem to be a coyote.

Chupa means sucker, and cabra is goat. They supposedly suck the blood out of smaller livestock.

The Chupacabras I've seen are mangy canines, probably coyotes. The myth started in Puerto Rico and a creature with the overall configuration of a kangaroo, though smaller, with glowing red eyes and dorsal spikes and sometimes wings was described.
Also it had pointy vampire-like teeth and a long probiscus like tongue which some say was bifurcated.
As stated, it sucked the blood of small animals.



It should be noted Fox Mulder investigated this myth and nothing was resolved . . . . . .

No you don't...;)

Saw a hunting show the other day where they shot a coyote that had a weird growth on it's mouth, tongue and down it's throat. It was mangy too.
Down right creepifying...:uhoh:

That coyote looks pretty awful. I'd be afraid to touch it or get any of the fluids on me. Could be rabid??

As Other Bob could tell ya , Florida has a variety of Soils. Everything from Sugar sand to red clay, to river bottom, cypress dome black humus to phosphate spoils which that sort of looks like.

Near Gainesville you can find swamps of black muck , but mostly we got a lot of white sand under about an inch of top soil. Till it up you got grey sand....until the sun bleaches it whitish again. Fools you into thinking it might be worth something other than Yellow Dent Corn and Watermelons and peanuts when it gets wet and so dark. But with only under lying pockets of white clay (not even of the quality of the worst fullers earth up in the pan handle) water won't stay in the crop zone long and neither will nutreints. With in a few miles of the house this year folks grew or are growing, Cotton, water melons, peanuts and tobacco commercially.

We got deer and turkey though and grey squirrels out the wazoo, and foxes and raccoons enough to well decorate the highways and even those dang stinking native American Dog things.

I've always thought Coyote was an old Indian word that meant "Smells Bad"

I've seen some guys hunt Coyote over turkey decoys. Anyone here do that and what decoy do you use?

(I got to get them close as I'm using my Colt 1860 Army, about fifty yards.)

That description definitely fits in this case.
