  • Another Kenai Coyote

    Another case of being in the right place at the right time, or as they say, pure %&#@ luck. Taken at 419 yards with a Ruger M77V, .220 Swift made in 1976. 55 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip Varmint – 43.5 grs IMR 4831-Fed. 210M primer and WW cases. Nothing like a Swift that consistently shoots nickel size groups at 200 yards for this kind of work. This female weighed 27 pounds and has a nice thick pelt. Beautiful sunny day about 3:00 PM.

      Not calliing, just wandering the country. When the sun is out in mid-winter they seem to want to be out in it and once in a while I'll get lucky. No stalk on this one, spotted her as she came out from behind a clump of small spruce in otherwise fairly open country. Just dropped to kneeling position and used a small spruce for a rest and took her.

        Did I read that correctly, 419 yards? If so, well done! Must have been pretty still air. Yous ure do a lot of walking/hiking in the right places. Nice post.

          Well thanks, yeah, it was 419, and you got the still air right, one of those rare sunny days that was absolutley dead calm. I think it works out to around 50 miles of walking per coyote. I just haven't had good results with calling but maybe next year I'll get a FoxPro.

              I mean the coyote Remind me not to bet you on shooting proficiency. I'm not sure I could have seen her much less hit her. Sounds like you sure work hard for your fun. Good photo, thanks for sharing.
