Coyotes 4 ME 0
« on: March 12, 2019, 09:23:46 AM »
Ok Feb. 4th I called in an killed a coyote since that time I have had coyotes less then 500yds 4 different times, yesterday after daylight had a pair close to 477yds I know that most would have been sending lead, maybe I should have but I was just not steady enough. About 2 weeks ago had the same pair at 304yds this was at night I just did not have a good enough sight picture in the scope to take the shot, both times they just left they was not spooked just lost interest or knew something was not right. This pair has been pressured a lot by me and the neighboring farm kids and some guy trapping, I seem to be able to get them to sound off an even show up at a distances sure would be nice to get a little closer. What's your thoughts?

My thoughts. I’d keep moving closer to them.

Yep, you already know or you would have shot. Everything you can think of can go wrong on a 300 + yard shot.
I see a lot of people have a hard time hitting an 8 inch pie plate at 300 yards at my club shooting range. A coyote under field conditions is harder to hit then that 8 inch plate at the club range.
For a brief moment I could hear nature through all the noise.
