    Default Developed first load / got first kill

    I wanted to replace my factory coyote loads with handloads.
    My scope is reticled to a specific load so i had to reproduce velocity first then see about the accuracy. I was pleased with the results.

    Hand loads


    This one wont be killing any fawns !!!
    I set up in my favorite spot at daylight. I waited 15-20 minutes to make sure i had good shooting light. I turned on the fawn distress. I was about 17 minutes into my sequence when i spotted a yote coming under the fence. She trotted towards the caller and then started hopping trying to see over the grass. When she stopped for half a second i let her have one. She was quartering too and i didnt make the best shot, but she only made it 70 yards. She had lost alot of her hair and even though she didnt have any sores on her i decided not to touch her at all.

    I have walked in the tracks of the elephant, heard the lion roar and met the buffalo on his terms. I shall never be the same.

    Are black coyotes common in your area?

    I never saw a black coyote before. That would make a nice hide if it was winter time!
