22/250/dead dog


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Went Hog hunting Friday evening but the wind shifted towards the feeder.
So I picked up a tooter and called this old skinny coyote up. He was about 150 yards away. You can see he has a short summer coat.
The ol 22/250 is just made for that kinda stuff.
The hunting pics will start flowing now


Its ON

Always Worth A Shot

I always considered a shot at a yote worth it, while deer or hog hunting. Even as a guide in rural Maine with sports,I'd always tell my sports to take the shot and I'd gladly give them an extra day or relocate them to another one of my stands.

Talking to deer hunters at different gatherings,allot of them will admitt to passing a shot on a yote to wait out the deer or other game.

To each their own.....but not me. -----pruhdlr

Yea, I would take a coyote any day. There were two of them and they must have been right below the flat I was on because, they came in on the first try. It was hot Friday evening, about 94 degrees when I took a stand at 7:00PM but probably not as hot as Afghanistan, there Combat Diver

Guess for me it depends on the circumstance. I've passed up 'yotes when on a stalk. Also passed a prime coyote chance while elk hunting three years ago which, in that case, was the right decision. Also taken 'em when scouting or hunting and the opportunity presents itself.

Congrats on the kill tpv.

There must have been about a hundred buzzards working on what was left of that coyote this (Sun.) morning. Sky darkened when they took off! I can't imagine any of them getting more than a bite or two.... ?

I headed off to one of my stands after that and got my 4th coon of the weekend. Life is good!

Email me one of the pictures that won't post, and I'll try to figure out what is wrong with it. Maybe the wrong file format?

Mike, I got it fixed, it wasn't in jpeg.
Now it is so look out, here come the pictures.
My computer crashed and when it was fixed, I guess I lost some of the settings.

Just had warranty work done on my Moultrie. They sent me a new camera, no questions asked.
Here's some bucks from this week-end and an overpopulation of doe.
Season is getting close!
There's three bucks in the one picture but it's hard to see.
Good luck to all-
I also set the date wrong, just noticed that!

Got my 2009 hunting license in the mail yesterday. One handed letter opening doesn't work too well!

Doe harvest has gone up to three on this years tag.
And since I am a senior, my hunting license was only $25.00 this year

Sounds good to me. My granson is so little, I might be rushing it a bit, but my son took the wooden stock off of a H&R 223 when he put a laminate stock on. I'm going to cut about 4" off the wood stock and see if that works for the granboy. Then put him on some 50 yard targets and let him practise. I would rather he kill a trophy doe than me.

I checked my camera Friday and put it back out yesterday. sorry, no pics. I can't believe the deer are not using the trail I had it on at all. At least I eliminated them coming that direction. when I put it back out I put it on another well used looking trail into the plot. I may check it tomorrow but plan to leave it another week. I know they are in the plot by the tracks. I am trying to get the best trail into the plot to hunt and catch them early before losing shooting light.

One good thing about these cameras is that you can eliminate where to go so you won't waste time.
I'm going out in the morning to sit in another stand, but I know that I'm getting pics of what is on this feeder.
My trail cam wouldn't show the digital readout anymore, so I sent it in to Moultrie and they sent me a new one with their apologies. Pretty good service. I need to turn that one up a little more, its not getting the beam directly on the feeder.
Maybe your deer aren't in a pattern yet Chief, just kinda moving everywhere.
Once our acorns start falling, they'll do the same here. They don"t come into feeders as well, and just feed in the acorn groves.

Good Luck
