I am finally getting around to posting the video from the other night. These two coyotes have hit the bait three times and we finally met up. Despite fog most of the day, I was able to hunt that night as it began to lift somewhat. Humidity was 89%.
The alarm sounded just before 8:00 PM, and by the time I got the scope turned on and recording, and in shooting position, they were leaving. I figured they would be back (coyotes do this often). They returned within a few minutes.
I shot the male and at the time didn't see the other one. It must have been over the hill out of sight. Not sure if the other is a male or female. It didn't appear very scared and just trotted up the hillside. I hoped it would return, but it didn't. I stayed again at the shack last night just in case, but it was quiet all night except for the pesky red fox that is a regular.
I used the 6.5 Grendel, 90 gr. Varmageddon, and Pulsar Apex XQ38 thermal scope which has proven to be a great combination.
This one is a pretty coyote, different in color from most I get here that are salt / pepper colored with black guard hairs.
