Let the four dogs out about 10 min prior to my 8 am conference call. They're going nuts barking and growling by the side fence. Except for the growling I thought the cows were next to the fence. I looked and caught movement, a coyote 10 yards out from the fence in trees and old brown broomweed from last year. I struggled getting the safe open as I didn't have my glasses on. Finally success!

I opened the front door and walked to the edge of the house on the porch. 15 yards out I caught movement, got my scope on the gray blob in the weeds and fired off a round. Dogs didn't like the shot, I see a coyote making for the next county at mach 1. Dang it was only 15 yards, ok maybe 17 yards if I stretch it, I shouldn't have missed.

Went in grabbed my tea for my 8 am conference call, when it was over I went for a look . The dogs were on the dead body 3 seconds after opening the front gate. I thought there was only one, I was wrong! Good shoulder shot for not seeing his whole body!

This group has been hanging around at night staying just in the woods driving my dogs nuts. Hopefully the other one got the hint!

Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

nice job!

I have killed a few from a second story window after my border collie alerted me. I can tell by her bark and growl it is a coyote, she ignores deer and livestock. Have to remember to alert my wife that a loud bang may be coming lol
