I was down in my basement office this morning and at 8:30 am my wife yells to me that there is a coyote in the backyard. I run to the safe grab the rifle closest to the front (.308) stop at the ammo can and grab the first box of .308 ammo I can find. Ammo turns out to be 165 grain Accubonds.

Get into the family room and can see that the coyote is still there and is about 5 yards from the tree line and about 100 yards from the house. I slide open the double hung window on the deck door and the coyote looks at the door but does not bolt. I than load 3 rounds, chamber one, rest the rifle stock on the sill, take aim and tell my wife to plug her ears.

Coyote is slight quartering away and has turned its head back to the trees. I put the crosshairs behind its shoulder and pull the trigger. Coyote immediately goes down and thrashes for 5-10 seconds and than struggles back to its feet and turns 3 circles and goes back down for good.

Healthy looking young male:

View from the shooting position. You can just make out the dead coyote at the back of the cut grass trail in the centre of the photo. The closer object that looks like an animal is my sons foam deer shaped archery target (minus the legs).

Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.

When your back yard is Ontario wilderness, I don't doubt you see a few yotes, LOL.

Good shot!

Hey, snow is gone. Good deal. BTW, kill 'em all.
Hunt hard, rest when you're dead.
