A friend and I got together tonight to try our luck. Well Molly pulled out his hand call and called for 15 seconds or so. This female came walking down the dirt road just a minute later. She got to about 100 yds and sat down. I told Molly that this yote is doable but he wasn't so sure. Well I let the 123gr hornady a-max fly and it hit its mark right behind her shoulder. This was another AR that I built in .264 Grendel. I shot some deer with this rifle during deer season but hadn't taken a yote with it yet. I thought I would give it a try.
Right around the 3am mark we had this coyote come to Molly's rabbit in distress hand call. It took me 4 shots to get this yote to drop. Long story short these critters are tough.
After a little regrouping and a few more stands we had this mangie yote circling around us. It was about 4am. He was about 150 yards and would stop for a few seconds then go, Molly would stop him with the hand call. After 3 or 4 stop and go sessions I finally pulled the trigger. He bounced around for a second or two and down he went. He sure is ugly but he sure was fun to call up then shoot.
