Shot at 3 different coyotes yesterday. 2 while turkey hunting and the 3rd while riding around. First shot was 75 yards so probably not much damage. The second was 50-60. My patern isn’t good st those yards so probably not much damage. Third was 100 yards running and I had buck shot. It was a bad day to not have my AR.

Dogs still vocal up your way? They have shutdown down here in south Georgia. Very tight lipped right now and denning is in full swing. Having more success going back to rabbit distress. Males are hunting hard to feed two mouths.
