Default Long Poke Coyote

It was a crazy stand last Friday night. We saw one at the end of a field road to our east where we intended to set up. While watching that one, another one appeared in the field to our north. It was right in our downwind. Appeared like it wasn't coming any closer so I took the shot about 250 yds. and missed.

The first coyote disappeared at the shot, and we didn't see it again. About 30 minutes later another coyote appeared to our north tracking the one I had missed. She also got into our downwind and was moving away. I killed her at 310 yds. Still don't know why I missed the first shot. I didn't get it recorded.

Apparently I inadvertently left my dvr on and it killed the battery. I didn't check it like I usually do before leaving. My hunting partner says he got it on video. We actually had two more coyotes that appeared to our north after I killed this female but they wouldn't come on in.

Here is a picture-mature female around 30-32 lbs.

And the video as seen from my partner's scope:

Thanks Possumal, she would have looked a lot better if she hadn't fallen face first into a field ditch at the shot. That got her pretty muddy.
