First Two Coyotes For The 2012 Fall Season
Posted 13 August 2012 - 11:07 AM
Late yesterday, Yote Yoda and AKAGrousehunter could not go, so I went to a new place over in Garrard County that I had scouted once before. I had time for one good stand, possibly two, so I got set up where the farmer had two big rows of rolled bales running for 75 to 100 yds across a ridge fenceline by an old barn. No sooner than I turned the CS-24 on, here comes a big coyote from beside the old barn, down beside the rolled bales, heading straight for the CS-24/decoy. The angle she was running put her about 175 yds from my seat, and I was afraid she would get my scent if I let her circle the ecaller completely, so I wooped at her and she put on the brakes, giving me a broadside shot at about 200 to 215 yds.. One shot from the Prairie Panther with the 53 grain Hornady Super Performance, DRT. She was a real pretty pup from last year, and had never had pups. She would have really been pretty completely furred out, as she was a typical long legged, big headed coyote. Some big old male lost a good bet for a wife when I pulled that trigger.
Getting ready to go again this afternoon if the rains move out well before dark. Here is a picture of last night's 33 lb. female.
