    actually got two of the three he saw. his first kill with his 1943 M1 Garand. I think he was ready for a large pack as he had around 54 rounds in the stand with him. :)

    this one was a small female, the other was a male.

    Congratulations to the young man on his shooting ability and on his choice of weapons. I am truly impressed with both. How far out were the yotes?

    I would always sacrifice a deer hunt to kill a coyote. Well done. Great start to a long career of killing yotes!

    he knew he was messing up his evening hunt, 30 minutes before sunset, but he said it took him half a second to make up his mind. :)

    75 yds. shot the first while it was standing still. the small female took off running, he said he led her, took off the top of her head. last year, in the same stand, he was surrounded by yotes. he said it sounded like dozens howling, yipping and yapping. he heard these coming through the wet leaves.

    Well, he sure did good. There's something special to me about hunting with a real classic gun. Adds to the hunt IMO. Hope it did for him too.

    While I hate to mess up a deer hunt, but if I see a coyote it's going down! That's been the rule on most farm properties I've hunted.

    If a bunch of Coyotes come through your stand, the Deer Hunt is over anyway.
    I had rather kill a Coyote than a deer any day of the week.
    He had a fantastic hunt killing the 2 of them.
    I am very proud of him and have him promise me that he will go back out there again and get More COYOTES. Great job buddy. JR

    He done well. I just told the wife if I seen a yote and a deer at the same time I would shoot the yote in revenge for the cats they have killed around the house.

  12. Great job drilling those yotes. Better to thin them out than to bag a deer.
