    Coyotes were hungry today

    Around 130 today I started calling, starting off with some howling, followed by rabbit and rodent sounds. After about 15 minutes I hear some howling around a half mile away so I howl back and restart the rodent sounds.
    Five more minutes pass and I spot two coyotes sneaking along the side of the field about 400 yards. So I quiet down the caller and watch through the scope as they check out the situation. The south wind was worrying me as the more they came up the edge of the bean field the closer to my scent cone they would be. They duck into heavy cover and disappear. BAH! Frustrated I switch to pup distress and crank up the volume.
    After a minute this male coyote blasts full speed onto the alfalfa field I’m on and charges the caller ! I thought he was going to carry the thing off with him, I barked and woofed at him but he didn’t stop so I had to throw a Texas brain shot at him at about 100 yards, knocking him over. The fox bang on the call goes off and I reset for the second one. Unfortunately it charges out similar to number one and there no stopping it. I salute three times with the savage 200 in .223 and I can’t say I fluffed a hair on the dang thing. If I do my part the inexpensive rifle will kill coyotes. I needed a back up shooter I guess. turned out to be a big male , guessing the other was a female.

    Nice. Is the Texas Brain Shot the same as the Texas Heart Shot?

    Good story, too.
