    This is the third one with mange, not much mind you but he was showing signs along his tail. Not a very good coat.....

    I've only been out once,so far,and didn't see any or have them come in to the call. Buddy has shot two and neither one was worth skinning. The sheep and Turkeys are greatful,though.

    Congrats! I know you've mentioned it in past posts but they are too frequent to look through, what cartridge are you using? I've got a .270win that I will be using when I get the chance to coyote hunt. I'm not concerned about pelt damage. The farm I will be hunting provides limited distance shooting and I think 200 yards would be the max. Do you or anyone ever consider shooting slugs if the shots are within 100 yards? I'm asking for safety reasons, knowing the limited distance a slug will travel vs a .270 gives me a bit more piece of mind.

    12ga sabot slug for close range,especially,around barns,sheds and silos. .270Win for pastures,fallow fields and fence lines. Set up where you can be sure of your backdrop and use frangible bullets (any 110-130gr. ballisitic tip) when pelt retention isn't an issue.

    I am shooting a .223 savage axis with a 4x12 Bushnell Prime, it shoots a .55gr vmax bullet.....
    As for slugs, what trimmer21 said is the deal...I would just add, buckshot is very safe and effective too
    Good luck
