seemed like it was forever that I couldn't find a coyote. I knew there's no way I shot them all. Happily, in the last week I've shot a few. They were all female. Is that a coincidence, or are the females more on the move at this time of year?

I've mentioned before that shooting rarely runs the deer off. Same thing this afternoon. Had the coyote at 200 yards and 4 deer at 400ish. Dropped the coyote with my loud old 220 and the deer just looked up from eating grass.

And...lately I've been using the Sierra 55 grain boat tail Gameking after years of using the Nosler 55 gr Ballistic Tip. The thought was that the Sierra would hold up better on pigs. Well, I can't find a pig, but the bullet exit on coyotes seems to be smaller than what I saw with the Nosler. Not that this is a careful scientific experiment, but I am thinking that the Sierra might be holding together better than the Ballistic Tip.

From what I have seen over the years, they are on the move more in general this time of year, but I'm certainly no expert. We're going out this afternoon to try and call a few in.

I can't seem to call them. Can't find the magic sound. So, I just sit till they cross the hay field or power line. I've called up foxes and Bobcats, but that's about it.

All the females are pregnant and should be dropping or have already have pups on the ground which could be playing into their activity

The past few weeks I have been very lucky with pup distress sound on my foxpro.
I assumed I would get more attention from the females but all have been mature males.
I assume looking for an easy snack.
