Default Got a phone call, so I made 2 coyote calling stands.

I got a call from a rancher yesterday saying he saw 5 coyotes on a short drive within 2 miles of his house.

So today at 6:00 pm I headed out to his ranch that is about 8 miles from my house. It was 93 degrees when I got out of the truck to do the first stand.

I took my 223 AI Tikka because it is lighter than my 22-250 and my 243 Win. It sure seems like my 22-250 and my 243 Win weigh more each year as I am getting older. LOL

On the first stand I was in some hills with grass on them, no rocks or cover. I set my X-Wave out about 40 yards in front of me and started playing Adult Rat on full volume.

After 4 or 5 minutes I saw a coyote heading down a hill about 150 yards away and it was heading towards my X-Wave. The coyote stopped about 80 yards away to look at the decoy on my X-Wave so I put a 40 gr Nosler Lead Free Varmint bullet just behind the male coyotes shoulder. He ran about 30 yards and fell over.

About 5 minutes later I saw something moving on the hill top to my left, it was another coyote. It was hard to see because the sun was just above the coyote.

I switched from Adult Rat on full blast to Vole Squeaks on half volume. I lost the coyote in the deep grass looking towards the sun.

A few minutes later I saw the small coyote pup down towards the base of the hill only about 100 yards away. It was moving through the grass and then stopped in some shorter grass so I shot it.

It took me a while to find the coyote pup laying in the grass. The male coyote was quite a bit bigger and heavier than he looked through my scope.

I did one more stand but didn't call anything in. It was to hot for me this evening but the evenings should be getting cooler in the next two to four weeks.

Well done! I too have found that my rifles are getting heavier. The heat is hotter, too.
