Young Yote VS 150GR .357 HP
« on: December 04, 2019, 01:28:34 PM »
I went out this afternoon in the hopes of tagging one of the nice bucks behind my place and naturally, in tow, was my Bulldog. After about an hour of seeing nothing but squirrels and birds, I started hearing something running around behind me. With all the squirrel activity it was too easy to just assume that it was one or two more chasing each other in circles so at first I just brushed it off and went back to looking for deer. This went on for about five minutes when it started getting closer and I just had to turn around to see what was making all the racket, not loud racket like a deer, but light steps, quickly. As I started my slow turn around I came eye to eye (so to speak) with a young female coyote that was dancing around kicking up leaves and eating the grubs or insects I imagine. Even though I was 15 feet in the air that blaze orange made me stick out like a sore thumb to her and she started running away at an angle. She finally stopped at 70 yards and stood quartering away from me and I decided it was then or never to take the shot. I aimed just at the top of her front shoulder and squeezed. The thud was AMAZING from the 150GR Anvil's impact and she hit the ground without moving another inch or yelping.

The coyotes have pretty much destroyed the immediate local turkey and rabbit population and getting to take one out behind the house was especially satisfying. The round entered a little further back than I like but did the job just fine and naturally was a full pass through. The photo shows the exit wound. As I have stated many times before, I don't believe there is a such thing as a bad shot on a coyote.

In other words....

The only good coyote, is a dead coyote!

While they have their place in the ecosystem, the fact they’ve been too efficient at thinning the Turkey and Wabbit populations is good reason to thin out the yotes. Good shooting!
