What do you do on a Sunday morning when you fill your Turkey tag on a Saturday afternoon? You go coyote hunting of course! Mr. Green

I got out to the family ground about 15 minutes before sunrise and set up looking across the cattle grazing ground that is South of our ground. Sat til just after sunrise and made a few calls on and off for about 1/2 hr, mainly rabbit in distress. Never saw a thing.

Decided to go to the ground North of our ground and set up on the South side of a large pond there but on my way I had to stop and watch 2 does come across real slow in front of me. I sat motionless up against a tree and they were within 30-40 yards of me at one time and they never knew I was there. So after they cleared out I finally got over to the spot I wanted to watch/call from and before I could do any calling with the Foxpro, I saw a doe running SE across the ridge North of me. It stopped and looked back behind it a few times and it seemed like it was spooked and "coyote?" was the first thing that I thought might be spooking her.

Low and behold within several minutes I see a coyote trotting across the same area that the doe came across. This was about 350-400 yards North of me. I thought the coyote might come over to the pond like I've seen coyotes do in the past so rather than make any calls I sat there quietly for another several minutes before I started with some light distress calls. It was within another 10 minutes this small female came out of the bottom I saw her headed for (there's a creek down there) and stood broadside looking over across the pond. She was probably just over 100 yards out and my AR-15 with the Hornady 75gr HPBT ammo hit it's mark, Twisted Evil

Just curious if they were dropping pups yet. I saw a female Sunday looked like she could drop a litter any day! Was slow on the trot.

Very nice work! I'm curious as to the caliber as well as the type and length of barrel you are using on your rifle? Looks like a fluted bull barrel with a free floated hand guard?

Anderson 24" heavy fluted 223 Wylde 1-8 twist. Yes free floated. Shoots heavier bullets rather well.
