Default Broke in my 17 HMR

I took my new toy out yesterday. It is a Marlin 17 HMR with a BSA 3-12 scope. I was walking along the edge of the woods and found 3 sets of fresh coyote tracks in the snow. I started following them and would set up and call whenever I came to the top of a ridge. Did this a few times and then started the caller again. Less than 10 seconds and I see 2 of them coming right at me. The first one spotted me trying to aim. She stopped 50 yards outand stared straight at me. I put the cross hairs in the middle of her chest and squeezed. She hit the ground and her tail flipped once and that was it. The other one took off before I could get another shot. It was a lot of fun!!
