    Anyone have a pic of a coyote you've shot? I live in SE GA and apparently there are a good number of them out here but I have yet to see one.

    What's the hide like on one? Is it something that'd be worth getting tanned? or is it more like shooting a big dog?

    My Bushy Varminter likes to sneak up on them when they are sleeping... :D

    Absolutely, if you don't mind skinning the flea bitten things. Around here, furs are prime from Thanksgiving until maybe late February. There used to be a pretty good market for the skins, $25-$60 if I recall correctly. Lately the skins haven't been worth much.

    I was thinking the same thing. Why, look at the little Big Bend desert yodel dawg that I watched Art pop with his '06 one morning. (BTW, Art's not a huge oversize like me-- that's a Toyota pickup tailgate by his left elbow.)

    Shot this ole dog at about 110 yards with a 180gr nosler PT HE from my kimber 84M stainless .308 win.

    Darndest thing...

    I was up on a little knoll glassing for deer when an acute case of ADD kicked in. So pulled out my yoddle whistle and gave her a blow.

    This old grizzled male stood up from behind a little snow drift at the base of my knoll and did the I'm a tired dog stretch just before meeting Mr. Nosler...

    The coyote had been asleep behind one of these little snow drifts not 110 ***** away and my call woke him up!!! That was a first for me especially in wide open country like this.

    This is a pretty typical eastern Co plains coyote with an early winter coat. He was a fairly large male.

    A friend told me of one taken in a trap recently in WVA.It weighed in at 90 lbs , may be a record for the state.

    I suffer from coyote envy now! Mine looks like the reject of the bunch.

    Here is a coyote we killed while antelope hunting in Wyoming. Sorry there isn't anything to compare its size; I would consider it an average coyote--nowhere near 90 pounds (!!!).

    Regards to All
