    Predator Hunting Canada

    Just got an e mail from my son in Canada with a few pictures of my youngest grandson with his first coyote. Hunter shot the coyote from about 100 yards with one shot out of his dad's heavy barrel Savage 22 250.
    Looks like a pretty chilly day out over in Canada. Now that deer hunting has now ended till next season the old coyote gets a bit more attention and keeps the eye in over the long winter months.
    Hunting Coyote can sharpen your shooting skills as many shots are taken at 300 - 400 yards or further and calibers like the 22 250 Rem are pretty much the ideal medicine for these wily creatures.
    Beeman loads his own ammo and uses the 50 grain Winchester Ballistic silvertip bullet at close to 3800 fps and has found they perform well near or far.
    Coyotes are responsible for quite a few deer kills in winter and for killing a lot of fawns soon after birth.
    So from a hunters point of view keep tabs on coyote numbers is a good thing.Name:  Hunter's first Coyote.JPG

    Yes the young fella is rapt to get his first Coyote, and some of them do grow quite big. A lot of the time they hunt in packs like wolves and when there is plenty of snow about the deer can't move as quick and tire faster and become a meal. When I have been in Canada you would sometimes find a set of hooves and the thick leg bones from deer killed by Coyotes out in the son's Alf alfa fields.
    They do some good though as they also predate on moles, gophers, and rats etc.

    Also looks like a good skin/ pelt off that one, or a large Davey crocket hat, do you keep the skins and is there a bounty on them, very good shooting.

    No my son doesn't keep them but I believe there is a market for them in Canada. People do trap them and sell the pelts. Full winter coats are quite impressive.
