I zapped these 2 Big Yotes recently, they came in to my Foxpro Wildfire 2 Game call using the Sound “Lightning Jack” when i shot the first coyote that Kicked off What’s called Foxbang (i have it preset to coyote pup distress) the other Coyote came in to the Pup distress. I was using my .308, It was cold out that morning and I forgot my Seat pad, i had 2 coats on but my Legs (Butt Mostly Very Happy) Got cold Fast sitting in the Snow, But i knew these darn things were in this area so i was persistent

We have a TON of these things around here, it doesn’t matter where you go you will find their tracks in the Snow, this country is really brushy and Expanse, I live and Hunt in Unit 1, This Unit alone is 2,476 Square miles. Big grown Coyotes kill a LOT of Whitetail Deer, some folks have a hard time believing that, But it’s an absolute fact. My Dad pulled 9 or 11 Dead deer off the Ice around a Frozen Private lake last Spring, the only tracks around these deer kills in the Snow was Coyotes, and LOTS of them! Their was 9 Coyotes in this 1 pack seen several times Basking on the Frozen Lake on Sunny, yet cold days last winter. Coyotes are a real problem here

No I didn’t on these, and these were actually really nice ones! This was more of a Help the Deer Out situation. Me and my dad talked about skinning them out from here on, they actually have decent value from my understanding? Seemed like 50-60 bucks a piece iirc? My .308 wasn’t the best choice for keeping Hides, Dad and i talked about using the .22 Magnum from now on for the Pelts.

Yeah, they looked like nice hides from the pic, that why I was wondering...

Thanks for your post Idaholewis.  I always found winter varmint hunting to be a great solitary season...no bugs, no hot weather and little to none competition among hunters.  Not a varmint but I like hunting red squirrels with a scoped pellet rifle. 

What does " Lighting Jack" imitate Question
