The "Hammer" and I did a little "bait gathering". Hoping to get something "real" to post here. We normally deer hunt a LOT but this year we have embarked on building our own house on only hunted a few times each. For a couple senior citizens with no prior construction experience, it has been a handful and taken ALL our time.

OK I am having a senior moment. I finally got something to share and I am having problems. I have made several videos with my X-Sight II but have a new computer now and I am having issues. I usually use Window Movie Maker to edit my videos but WMM won't play this video. It says it doesn't support the format. I can play the video on my computer with VLC Media player but I can't figure out how to save it in a format that Windows Movie Maker can use. Any techies out there that can give me some steps to follow? The video is currently in .MOV file format.

I'm a computer dummy weekender, otherwise I would offer help. I'm sure there are some smart guys that can chime in and help out.

Big male came in tonight. 40gr Nosler BT did its job. About 70 yards when hit.

Nice looking coyote there Burn.

Friday night I called in the big field behind my house. I set up at the back of my shop to have moon shade. While I was setting up I heard some to my southwest open up. I responded with some vocals and saw one come out on the field edge about 500 yds. away. I've called these coyotes too many times already this year. I never could get one to break loose and come across the field.

Saturday morning when I checked my Trail cameras, a female had come just before daylight to investigate where that coyote was. She hit my bait pile from 5:30 to 6:30 this morning. I was hoping she might return soon. I decided to have a look around the field about 9:45 last night and saw her sneaking around just over in the corn stubble at 225 yds. Here she is a pretty nice 31 lb. female.

Here is the video: Humidity was very high, so not a good view.

Congrats on the female DU. You keep making those long shots count, impressive.

Thanks week, but I sort of just take what they offer in range. I'd rather have them at 50 yds. of course.

Nice one DU. Keep up the good work sir! That basket is a great idea

BTW - the one I shot was full of heartworms. When I rolled him over they came spilling out. That was the first yote I've shot with the 40gr Nosler. Supposed to be running at 3700FPS per their website. It blew a pretty big entry hole and didnt punch through. Maybe it hit a rib and just exploded? Weird...I guess more data is required to make a determination on how good/bad that bullet selection will do.

I've never shot the 40 ballistic tips. I do have some 40 Varmageddon's that were very accurate, but thought they might be a bit frangible for coyotes. That was in a 26" barrel though and they were clocking in about 3,800 fps. I hear the 40 gr. Sierra hp is a very good bullet for coyotes, but haven't shot them either.

Shooting the 40 v-max in a 16" AR was giving me around 3,400 fps. I do think the harder you push them the more explosive they will be on coyotes, so slowing them a little might give better penetration.

Southeast coast coyotes are right in the heat of heartworm territory, so I'm not surprised. I thought how crazy it was for USFWS to try and establish a wild pack of "so called red wolves" in NE North Carolina smack dab in the center of heartworm and mosquito territory. Typical Bureaucracy at work I guess.

Finally it's my turn. Got back in the saddle Saturday morning early, about 6:00 AM. My wife woke me said the alarm was going off. Sure enough a customer. Nice female. I didn't weigh her but she was FAT. Decent hide too. I deleted my still pic by mistake but I finally got the video converted from MOV to MP4 via "Any Video Converter" a free download app.

90 yds .223 X-Sight II factory IR 53gr VMAX

Why is it that sometimes the thumbnail show up and other times just the link. Don't think I am doing any thing different.
