    Default Nice coyote down

    I got to the farm this morning just before light, setup and waited for legal shooting time before I started calling. It took about 5 minutes before this male coyote came out looking for that dying rabbit. He was making his way toward the decoy when he spotted me moving (shifting over for the shot/aligning my shooting sticks/gun up).
    He stopped for a second looking at me and must have decided to err on the side of caution, so turned and started heading back toward the bush. I yelled out wolf a couple of times to try and get him to stop but he would not.... So I took a shot on him while he was still moving and with luck on my side he dropped in his tracks. Mind you it was only an 80yd shot but hitting a moving coyote isn't all that easy, heck I miss them standing still from closer..... He turned out to be good looking (nice coat on him) male.

    The setup/my view


    How it played out...Coyote starts off 170yds out, runs toward the decoy, sees me move and decides to head back toward the bush.


    The pose...


    All skinned out

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?
