Title: 2020 Coyotes
Post by: birdshooter1189 on August 11, 2020, 02:24:20 PM
I think we need a coyote success thread similar to bear/deer/elk.  So i'll get it started here.

Note: This is NOT a contest. Just sharing success stories, photos, and videos.

Here's a video of one I shot this morning.  Shot is at 2:59.

I shot a couple this year. Trying out a thermal imaging scope. Shot one at 30 yards and the other at 113 yards. The thermal scope works great.

65 yotes sounds like a very nice fur check!

Between my daughter and myself I think we are only up to 10 or 12. Been a slow year so far. Last year we hit 40 even.

The video in my first post is number 10 for me since January of this year.  In feb or April I had 3 come through in 4 days.  For the past 3 or 4 months it's been pretty regular 1 per month at my place.

I haven't made the plunge to thermal.....yet.... It looks nice.

sweet.  That definitely got the job done!  I had a coyote in the crosshairs of my 300 winmag once.  Unfortunately I didn't have a safe enough backstop and had to pass on the shot and the coyote got away.

Been there done that.  :chuckle:
A .22 revolver did the trick on the little guy. Rolled it. In my defense I heard him coming in and was so focused on the shot when his head and chest poked up about 10 yards away in the thick reprod. Still one less future fawn killer. Good shooting D Rock.

Loving the thermal scope.

Nice! I've never had a missed one give me a second shot within the same week. 

I heard a couple yipping near my place last night.

I shot this one last Saturday night. Couldnít find it. I have seen vultures circling for the last couple days. Today I saw a vulture land in a tree thatís in the middle of a blackberry patch thatís about 30 yards from where I shot the coyote. I went up there and literally sniffed around and found it. Nice to confirm the kill. Itís the 4th one for 2020. All with the rifle with the thermal scope.

Nice shooting! Thatís a long poke. I have a hard time getting a decent group at 300 off a bench at the range. Good to see that big fawn killer taken out.  :tup:

Those with the thermals, what models do you use and what range can you use them?

I have a simple basic unit that doesnít record video. ATN THOR LT  4-8x
I have shot a couple coyotes at a little over a 100 yards. They were easily visible and after watching them for a little bit it is easy to make out that they were coyotes. I think it would work well out past that distance, I just havenít had the opportunity to try it.

Any tricks to western wa. Coyotes that you can give a Minnesota transplant? I used mainly howls with great success there but no response at all here

Post by: birdshooter1189 on October 14, 2020, 08:37:15 PM
Here's number 13 and 15 for me, both shot at 60 yds with 450 bushmaster, shooting a 230 gr speer gold dot HP at about 1000 fps. 

Ironically as I started typing this I heard a coyote barking outside about 500 yds away.  I decided to practice my calling so I stepped out on the porch with a diaphram call.  I made a couple bark/howls with it.  The coyote promptly went silent and my rooster started crowing......well that was a big FAIL. haha.  Good think I have an electronic call and don't have to rely on my calling ability  8)

Are you hunting your own property or public land in the area?  I have the most success using bait piles behind my house.  I also have some driveway alarm motion sensors placed strategically around my property to let me know when something is approaching.  For bait I've had good luck with: smoked salmon crumbled and sprinkled on the ground, rotisserie chicken shredded and sprinkled on the ground, hard cat food, cans of soft cat food.

I don't know if there's public access allowed to it, but I would look into areas under the powerlines between Allyn and Mason lake.  Those powerline roads are like coyote highways.  Other networks of logging roads could be good also, but visibility is usually better under the big powerlines.

My buddy and I ended up with 7 had 2 we lost and 6 misses.   We both made a few 275-300 yards shots with our Pulsars.  Around 11pm it was like someone flipped a light switch.  We had our first quad, they came in different directions, but none less a quad and to top it off I kissed them all in.  It was really amazing to see them react to the kisses over rabbit sounds.
