I believe you create a dust ball under his tail and see him grab high gear and possibly hit the nitrous.

They are easier to hit on the second shot if they are running straight away...  my experience is the sharp crack in front facilitates that better!

Good question, especially in today's social climate.  :tup:

If that happens in the wild, you’ll get a pic for sure.   I did see an iguana down in the Klick a few years back.

it will require more lead at 250 than what's shown.

I would guess at 250 you would need about a 2 body length lead

That would be a miss.

At 3/4 speed your hold would be closer to the line of the black and the light on the left.  Maybe more....

Great pic for that range!

I would say it depends on whether you are swinging with the coyote's direction, or holding steady ahead of him, to time the shot to coincide with that movement.

If you held on his front shoulder and continue your swing as you fire you would still hit that yote, idk if many of you have ever got to shoot the long distance moving targets at fort Benning or ft Lewis , those targets don't move as fast as a coyote but the logistics of a swing all still work they same!! I shot a yote at 100 last year running hard qaurting away and I held dead on , I know it's isn't a square crossing shot but I still think it works pretty much the same, it's all about the swing!!

Heart shot! Providing you have a 200mph wind blowing to the west (left)! As it looks, I would say he'it ends up with another sphincter to scat out of! It looks a little low for 250 lusting 87's. Where would I hold? Top of back & 3/4 the length of the dog. Figured if I was going to comment I would atleast give my hold. :twocents:
