1. Remington 700 in 223, 221 FB, 22-250 or aruger 77/22hornet(depends on my mood). Scopes: Mostly leupold, some Weavers, one bushnell elite.Ammo: handloads. Bullets: Nosler BT, or Hornardy VMax
2. Maybe a dozen days a year
3. both types of calls
4. early or late. Mid day can be productive if its overcast and before a coldfront.
5. Depends on what you consider successful. 10 percent kills. 50% of the time we call coyotes but get busted one way or another.
6. generally 1 or 2. and they come in a hurry. They have to or I'm gone. I usually only stay at a setup for 30 minutes max.
7. 100 yards average. Longest 375, shortest 2 yards with a 45 acp.
8. chest
9. No, I skin the ones I want to keep.
10. Rarely. Once in a great while I will call in a bobcat. You can't use your howler if you want to call cats though. Only distressed game calls.

1. I shoot a Savage .243 with a 6-24x50mm BSA Scope. I shoot what ever ammo I find that gets more bang for my buck. Usually 60-grn.

2. I call all winter when furs are good.

3. Both

4. Anytime coyotes are active.

5. I dunno

6. I have had three large coyotes come in at once.

7. As long as it needs to be.

8. With a .243 you have to aim at the chest. if you hit it in the hwead there wont be much left of it.

9. I have not sold any hides yet but once I get a lot I will probably sell some.

10. I do get a lot of foxes to come in when I use a smaller call such as an mouse squeaker.

1. Savage American classic 22-250 topped with a 4-12x40mm bushnell sportsman. Handloads pushing a 50 grain nosler ballistic tip around 3,700 fps

2. couple dozen times atleast

3. blow calls and a mouse squeaker

4. anytime

5. 50% of the time

6. depends on the time of year usually a few juveniles or 1 or 2 adults.

7. 200 to 300 yards, try to keep my shots under 300 yards since beyond 300 a 22-250 begins to lose its super flat trajectory.

8. neck or body mass

9. When I can

10. a few times I had a bobcat come into range and once a mountain lion come into my setup but didnt have a tag for it so I passed.
