    just got back in from calling yotes awhile ago. first set up i went to a section which has two sets of wood strips on it and the rest is in winter wheat right now. snuck in through a cattle pasture and got sat up about 200 yards from the timber and started calling. into my second session i turn around and see a coyote waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy out in the winter wheat. i get turned on him without him seeing me and start watching him through the scope. he is just sitting there looking away from me. i turned the caller around and started it up again. he turned and sat back down looking in my direction now. he started towards me and then stopped sitting down again. after the caller cycled i just sat there to see what he would do. he turned and started away so i hit the caller again this time the rabbit with the coyote flicker added in. he was blazing a dust trail towards me closing fast. at about 250 yards a water way ran through the field. he got to the water way and then ruined me day. he ran to the same fence line i was in and got down wind never to be seen again. oh well, if you got one every time it wouldn't be any fun.:)
     
  2. Still sounds like a good evenin' to be out Mike. Maybe I need to come up there and assist you in the formation of a coyote watchin' society :ass:

    anytime you want to give it a whirl john, let me know. i believe you are qualified to be a watcher.:rotfl:

    they are smarter than i like to give them credit for. sure thought this guy was headed for the dirt when he first committed. wish i would have been another 100 yards and i would have tried to pop him. just didn't feel like i could make the 250 yard running shot.

    no john you are right, but this is a new rifle and the only range time i have had with it is finding a round it liked. i would say i would be lucky if i had more than 100 rounds through it and those were at 100 yards. farthest shot with it was under 150 and that was at a coyote standing still. still breaking the barrel in. now if it would have been my .223 or the .243 which are my other two varmint rifles that have spent a few seasons on the p-dog field, not doubt a dead dog. let him try it again once the rifle becomes an extension of me.:sniper:

    As much time as we have invested into watchin' ducks I'd hope so ;)

    Warning, Graphic picture coming up

    I just got emailed some pics from a buddy in California. He took his new Foxpro caller out today, and him and his buddy got FOUR, first time out! Even called in some crows, later! He used a .22/250, his bud used a 25/06 with 75 grain V_Maxes, big medicine!:eek:

    Another grossly graphic pic

    For some reason, those Porterville boys like head-banging the poor things!

    .22/250, with 50 grain Rem. Powrlokts

    Not as bad as the .25/06, but pretty gory! BTW, Mike, he goes by "wingman" too! Heckuva nice guy!

    that would make a great, your brain on ________ advertisment. been hearing a lot about those fox pro callers on the predator forum. four in one evening, stars must have been aligned right.:eek:

    hfff, addiction would be the word for it. i've always enjoyed going after yotes but didn't really get into my blood until last couple years. can tell you i waited to long to get the 250 though. that thing is shooting great. can't wait to get it out on the p-dogs and see what it does at longer ranges.

    Four or five of the guys on the GGVG message board are in the Foxpro ads, Bill DelMonte, Pete Hauer, DAA, and maybe a couple others. All have been using Foxpros for some time now (and Bill was the guy making the sounds on Johnny Stewart's tapes! if that tells you his qualifications!) If I could afford one, I'd get one (got a JS 512, the old tape caller, can't get squat to come into it). DAA makes DVDs (Rocky Mountain Varmint Hunters), Pete is some kind of foxhunting genius. Great bunch, I've learned a lot there.

    that is the same model my dad has. he still manages to kill a few with it. i have the preymaster digital caller from JS. been having some decent luck with it. most of it depending on what kind of mood the yotes are in. what if the GGVG board? i check predatormaster but that is about the only forum for varmints i have found.

    Go Go Varmint Go Message Board is a hangout for a bunch of neer do wells like myself, over at

    www. varminthunters.com

    It's kinda free-flowing, free-for-all gun nut paradise and all around good folks, mostly like this bunch. Now and then, there's a shootin' match or get together or BBQ or something going on, like the Bluegrass Balloon Bust, in Somerset KY on the second Saturday in May (five fist sized water balloons @200 yards, and five little Halloween suckers, for factory class guns. Same deal at 300 for light custom, 400 yards for heavy custom) and it's WAY harder than it sounds) Labor Day weekend, the same crew has an egg shoot, at roughly the same rules, only it's ten eggs at 200, 300, 400. Wanna see some good shooting, go to one of those matches! My gear is NOT up to the task, but it's sure fun to watch those guys having at it. I've met so many nice folks there (some from here in Louisville, but others from all over, including NZ and Oz!). I have a gang of about 10 going PDogging this spring, most all from there, or, old pistol shooting buddies (or both!) Nice place, once you get used to it. I probably spend most of my online time there.
