Shot one (almost got 2) the other morning and one this evening. The one this evening came into a female barking call. Heard her barking in the reprod and mimicked her.  She made the mistake of stepping out in the pasture and droped her at 428 yds with the daughters .243.  That was coyote #18 so far for the year.  Mimick what you hear or when all else fails, woodpecker .  I don't bother using rabbit calls anymore.

Nice! I think this is our 3rd or 4th coyote this year.
 they've been pretty quiet around here, and we've had good success with the distress hand calls vs coyote vocalizations.
We both have bear tags so thinking there's a chance we could get one to come in, and it's been a little boring just looking for bear.

It's not always a death sentence, coyotes do adopt and surrogate females will come into milk. Some would say it's rarely a death sentence and hardly any pups die of dehydration from the main lactating female being killed.

Rarely a death sentence sounds like wishful thinking.

I don't care if you want to shoot them. I just don't buy for one second that most of them are adopted. Even if a female without pups happened to come along it would need to produce milk within 48 hours.
