First Coyote Double


I was hog hunting over the weekend, between rain fronts, and wasn't seeing a lot of activity and so thought I would try doing some predator calling. I would call for a few, wait a few, then repeat. Finally, a couple of coyotes appeared. I managed to tag both of them, but the first one shot disappeared on me. At the time, I thought it had turned back into the woods and my search there failed, in part because I got eaten alive by mosquitoes that had no respect for the repellent I was wearing. It turned out that the coyote was hidden in the deep stands of wheat and oats of the food plot, found the next day with the help of buzzards. Both were males.

It was rather exciting having the chance to get two in one session like that. Usually, I just see singles or if I shoot one, the other is long gone before I get the rifle on it.

Thanks for an excellent video.
What power scope were you using?

It is a 3x native resolution scope, so when it says 2x or 4x in the display, that is a digital zoom of 2 times the native 3x for a simulated 6x image, or 4*3 for a simulated 12x image.

With electronic scopes like the one I am using, native resolution is fixed. So zoom is digital and as you zoom, you lose resolution, just like digital zooming of an image on your computer.

Good shooting.

'Yotes' and 'Hogs', hard to shoot too many of either.

Keep after 'em.

Just a quick coyote kill from last night, same property. For the last two years, it was my hog honey hole and this year has been all about predators.

I pass through Forestburg on a routine basis. Pretty country. I'm glad you are popping coyotes every chance you get.
