Default VERY EXCITING FIRST!!!!

hey all yesterday me and my dad went out rabbit huntin but we took sum slugs and buckshot incase we saw any yotes....

well i got 2 rabbits so we figured we would try a little baiting/calling. so i dressed the rabbits and hung the guts in a tree bout 5 ft up. we had our lab-x with us as she loves to hunt everything. so we sat about 30 yards from each other with my dog running back and fourth between us because its the first time she has heard a rabbit squeeler...

so after a very long time of calling (i swear not even 3 minutes!!!!!!) a male yote comes runnning in towards our dog!! i put my bead on him with a slug loaded but was waiting for him to stop....during this time he got 15 paces infront of my dad! meanwhile....my dog 50lb lab-x is standing there with hair raised high as it can go on her back standing her ground!!!

so both me and my dad could have shot it by now but it was too close to our dog....5ft away from each other staring and growling each other...so my dad turned and looked at me and nodded and i nodded back...3 seconds later i called my dog and she came running to me and right when the yote started running after my dog my dad shot it with a load of 3" 000 buck.

i watched it go down but it got right back up!!! then my dad shot it again but it kept running so i had a clear shot of it running away quartering away so i shot it with a slug and rolled him

after we were finished checking him out he was hit with 5 000 pellets (turns out my dad it more trees then the yote) the pellets hit: 1 neck, 3 lung area, 1 rear leg. and the slug right below its backbone where the ribcage ends.

its a little bit taller then my dog but longer and a tiny bit skinnier...and when we compared weight by lifting our dog then the yote i say it weighs between 40-45lbs, my dad says 42-46lbs...

this is our first yote and he is a very well fed yote as it is definatley NOT skinnny and is in very good condition...well be4 we shot it up it was...

just figured id let ya know about our exciting first yote that almost ended up in a dog fight

Congrats on your first coyote!! I love to shoot those varmints. Even during deer season, if I see a yote, he's in deep trouble. I shot a yote one time that was very large. I wondered if he was a wolf or not. I bet that sucker went over 50 lbs easy, and not a rib bone on him showing. Anyways, I like to snipe them. My favorite .270 and a yote beyond 300 yards is a lot of fun and really tests your marksmanship.

There are a lot of guys here that hunt yotes with dogs. The yotes are attracted to the dogs and come right in. They're not afraid at all and aren't looking for a hunter.

Congrats!

Default RE: VERY EXCITING FIRST!!!!

we werent hunting yotes with a dog we just had her to kick out sum rabbits and we decided to sit can call for 10-15 minutes cuz we needed a little rest anyways (walking all day kicking brush piles and climbing over them gets tiring even for a young feller like me...18 years old)

can anyone suggest a good rifle and scope since i wannna buy a used one?

thx
