Rancher woman called me saying she has coyotes all over her place, they are even in the yard looking in my window at nights.
Instead of hitting P-dogs after work I headed to the ranch.
Hit the 2 track on the bluffs above her pastures & alfalfa fields about 7pm-ish where she said go in at.
Walked about a 1/3 mile into the rough area, grasses up to my waist, 85* still & set up on a smallish hill and within 25 seconds I had a pair run in full blast. I am not 100% prepared for them! Dropped one at 40', the other I yapped at & she spun to look and dropped her at 80 yards on her way flying out.
I hiked to some rock bluffs & was calling about 500 yards from the last spot, glassing I can see 2 coyotes in the rocks.
I nail 1 of them from 220 yards out. I think the other was hit, but just a red line into the den.
Its 930 by the time I get to the truck. I eat and walk back down the 2 track over a rolling bluff, set up and its about 1030pm. I hit play and within seconds I have coyotes going nuts all around me.
I am overlooking the lower pastures/fields and its full of tall grasses, dips and what not. I count 8 coyote running all over the place yapping & howling. 1 right behind me on the hill I just came over yaps at me, cant be more than 60 yards. Makes me jump since I didn't expect that.
A herd of horses in the same pasture the coyotes are in come trotting in blowing & snorting. Watching them in the thermal was cool as they ran them out. Dang it I wanted them to come my way not chased out the other end.
Then I see a coyote run in from my right blind side, makes my scent and is at 289 yards before it stops broadside after I'm barking at it. I drop it with my night rig.
I crash in the bed of the truck & up at 5am, drive right back into where they were last night.
I walked 1/4 mile or so up a gully, set up and hit play. Here come 2 flying in from 800 yards or so out (when I see them), sun is at my back & I am in the shadows on the hill side. That's right at the 1 min mark.
Both are in front of me so darned fast and not even seeing me as I have ol motion bambi below me.
They bust off about 20' in front of me before they realized this aint a puppy screaming. I drop 1 on the other side of the narrow gully on top. The other flys up the dip behind the one I just shot looking for its partner. I do not think it heard the suppressed shot as it was in the low gully coming up. I bark, it looks and drops at the bullet impact. It never ceases to amaze me how fast & sneaky they are.
730 am 7 total coyotes down and I head home.
This is the most Ive called/shot alone. Dang I need a video rig on my gun!
Rancher is a happy girl I told her there are at least 8 others out there. Come back & get the rest.
I feel if my ol pal was able to make it we would of had at least 3 more. He said I should call her since he was not able to get out there when she called him.

Good job! Thanks for the ride.

If what's ahead scares you and what's behind hurts you, look up; He never fails you.

If My people will humble themselves, pray, seek My face & turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven & will forgive their sin & heal their land.
