Please take a look at cross hairs and tell me if this is bad shot placement or not.

I think you are too far back, but it's not terrible. Should get liver there. What happened after that shot?

He jumped , acted like he was hit and ran off.
Here is the vid, I sure believe he was hit.

Looks like you just missed to the left of him. Maybe grazed him a little?

Yep, I think it was a grazing shot to the left, according to the crosshair position.

Thanks guys, we never found it.

Always bothers me when we loose one.

It was my partner shooting His .243 Which was just sighted in.

Great to have videos like that so we can review our shots as its not always as we remember in the heat of the moment. The last one I shot ran about 250-300 yards before giving it up. Took several days to find it. That one was not normal though. I reviewed the shot many many times on my scope video. The shot was good, but I attribute the long run due to my temporary change in bullet design/weight. Have since gone back to what works and has proven to do better with regards to runners. Coyotes are a lot tougher than I thought...

Can I back this thread up a little and ask a question?

On The original picture I posted, With the coyote quartering to us the way it is and where the cross hairs are in the picture...
Is that shot too far back?

Also- thanks for all the opinions on the shot in the vid

Only problem is I posted the wrong vid!
It was the same coyote but that gun wasnít the shooter.

So many vids on phone, I messed up. Iím sorry guys.

Iíll work on posting the right vid.

That looked like a good hit........

Did you check the area during daylight hours??

Bad thing about NV is that they get out there far enough away you lose sight of their eyes.


Did you look for it with thermal?

Yeah that one definitely looked like a hit....if his gun is truly dialed in. For shot placement on a quartering to shot, I try to aim through to the opposite shoulder..or just in front of the shoulder facing me. Broadside I follow front leg up.

Yes, we scanned entire field with my hogster. Didnít find it, or any blood.

We didnít go back the next day during daylight as we hunted from 8pm till 6:30am . And we were all exhausted.
