Birdshooter,
I recommend not holding behind shoulder for your scenario.  Hold on shoulder and you'll never have to retrieve them.  A perfect heart shot can take some time to recover.   :twocents:

.223 rem 53 grain V-Max. It stopped and was facing away, I hit a bit left of where I intended ha.

Nice.  I'd be skeptical of that caliber and bullet penetrating deep enough to hit vitals form behind, but the evidence speaks for itself.
Definitely, was aiming for a neck shot when she looked back. The 223 vmax isnít a sting Texas heart shot candidate.

Left or right you're causing massive trauma and blood loss resulting in a quick kill, often as fast as a heart shot.

Birdshooter - What is your camera setup?  I've got a red light and was wondering if I could get it set up like that.

Good input. The fragments from those varmint bullets do make a hell of wound channel.

Love the 53gr Vmax!

I probably shoot more 53gr Vmax than any other bullet.  Load them in my 9tw 223AI and 12tw 22-250 and they're not only very accurate but they are deadly on coyotes.

Emptyhanded: Looks like it still got the job done!  What caliber/bullet did you shoot it with?

Here's another I got last night.  I'm not sure if people are getting tired of these videos, but here it is:

:tup: Definitely not tired of coyote kill videos. There must be a bunch in your neighborhood. I think I have them thinned out n my area. Could be other guyís targeting them too.

Birdshooter - What is your camera setup?  I've got a red light and was wondering if I could get it set up like that.

I've used a couple different camera setups.  For a few years I was using an infrared camera scope kit called "Megaorei 2".  It has an infrared/full color daytime(with a switch to toggle between the two) camera that mounts to the back of the scope. There is a wire that connects to a LCD screen on top of the scope. This model has a micro SD card slot and a button on the back of the screen to start and stop video recording.  I then use an infrared illuminator with it. The kit comes with one that works ok out to about 30-50 yds.  With a good aftermarket illuminator you can see much further. ~150 yds with Odepro. ~300 yds with Sniperhoglights Coyote Cannon.  I posted a picture of this setup in the second post on the first page of this thread. These kits can be a bit finicky to get the camera aligned with the scope. And some scopes have IR blocking lens coatings that make them not work well with IR. Cheapest ($30-$80) scopes seem to be best for me.

All my night coyotes until post #64 on page 5 of this thread were with the Megaorei 2 Digital NV setup.  I recently got a thermal scope, Pulsar Trail 2 XQ50 LRF.  All my recent shots have been with that one.

Red light might work ok with the megaorei 2, but a IR diode illuminator paired with an IR sensor will work much better.  Red light won't produce anything similar to the thermal.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep sharing them as I get them then.  I started getting self conscious that I was posting more than anyone else and I'm sure others are shooting as many or more than I am.

Nicely done, curious about the distance.
