If you bait it, they will come.

Like Burn, I was using Ol' Roy from Walmart, but I doubt that makes any real difference.

Here is a picture from when I first started baiting them with dog food. At that time I was putting it in a cut-off 5 gal. bucket. They would eat out of it just like dogs. Actually in the picture you'll notice fruit on the ground. That is pears that they started eating originally, and then I started baiting them with the dog food.

Here is a black one that was feeding off the bucket located in another place in my yard.

Burn, nice job on the coyote. As to the 60 gr. V-Max, my experience with that is limited to a hunt in New Mexico with Tony Tebbe. The coyotes I shot with that bullet hit the dirt instantly. Tony at one time used that bullet too. Since then I have used a 6x45 for most of my coyote hunting, but if I were to go back to the .223, thatís the bullet I would use. Not saying itís better than anything else, but just that it worked for me.

Your experience is much like mine with baiting. A coyote would hit the bait and may not return for days, weeks and even months. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to them returning. Makes it difficult to hunt like that. Last year a coyote hit my bait site so I stayed at the cabin the following night. No show so I stayed the second night. Still no show, but I decided I would stay one more night, and I got him on the third night. I have gone over a month before without one returning. You would think they would return night after night as long as bait is there, but they donít.

Baiting is not as easy as so many think. It actually requires more work than calling.

You've got a LOT more patience than me! I would have "jerked" the trigger a long time ago.
Good job!

Thanks for the compliments. I was fairly confident that I would get a full body view of it eventually when it left. But then after a while i started to worry that it might not stop for me where it would be in view so i finally decided to go for the head shot if it gave me a good opportunity....and then it did =)

Good job there CT. Boy, that was a difficult one, with itís head bobbing up and down.

What scope did you use? I noticed it switching from black/white to color. Is that a home-made outfit? What distance and time of day was it?

Wednesday night was the beginning of the new season for me. This young male coyote had hit the bait for two consecutive nights, so I stayed at the cabin in hopes of his return. He had been coming around 8:30 PM or so, but this time he showed up before daylight around 6:10 AM the next morning. Just goes to show you can't always predict what they will do.

My sensors were giving false alarms throughout the night, crying wolf as a friend said. The sensor would go off and I would get out of bed and check, only to find nothing there. Finally after losing quite a bit of sleep during the night, I decided to not respond to only one series of beeps, but rather to check if the sensor did two or more series. Early in the morning the sensor made one round of beeps so I stayed in bed. Shortly after I heard what sounded like two coyotes yipping out in the field near the cabin and bait area. That got my attention.

Once I turned on the thermal I immediately saw a coyote in the field above the bait site and at Probably 65-70 yards. It was standing broadside when I first saw it, but turned and started trotting toward my direction. I dropped it at 60 yards + from my new 6.5 Grendel upper, shooting a 100 gr. Sierra HP. That round hit hard. It was the young male that had been visiting the bait site.

To start the evening off, I arrived at the cabin early to get setup and button down the hatch before dark. It came a light rain and a beautiful rainbow gave me a wonderful surprise and really added to the whole experience.








I retrieved the coyote later in the morning after daylight.








The bullet entered just in front of the left front shoulder and exited on the opposite side further back. The exit wound was pretty small, no real damage
but he was squishy inside. Can't predict how this bullet is going to do just yet, but hope to have more opportunities later on to draw some conclusions.








This is the new Grendel upper on my old DPMS lower. The thermal scope is the now discontinued Pulsar Apex XQ38. I took the shot on the base magnification of 2.2x.
The Grendel has a 20" barrel. The upper is a Bear Creek Arsenal upper that is performing well so far. I have a D-Lock mount on the Pulsar that gives good return to zero
when removed and replaced.








I have a mini DVR attached to the left side of the scope. I am using the Black Box DVR from Hobby Wireless.








This is my first coyote with the new Grendel upper, and also the first with my thermal scope. I got a short video of the thermal / Grendel kill, but the video
is pretty short. After I dropped the coyote I quickly panned around, hoping to see another coyote. I may wait until hopefully another kill or two to add
the video to make it more interesting. The humidity was at 95% as well, but still the imagine was not too bad, plenty good enough to drop this one.
