In Iowa you can hunt coyotes by chasing them with vehicles using FM radios. I did it for years. However never ever did I have a round in the chamber while in the truck. I always had the bolt open on my Ruger 77 until I got out to shoot. I was the youngest in the group and started hunting with those gents back in 1976. We killed 138 coyotes in the winter of 87. Most of those guys are either dead or sitting in a rocking chair now and a younger group of honyocks has taken over. We always unloaded our guns when we pulled out of a field and back onto the road. We were required to do so by law. Back then our carry permits were for concealed weapons only. Today the permit reads"Permit to carry weapons" so if you have a permit you can run with a fully loaded AR 15 laying in the front seat of a truck. I had a special set up rigged between the seats that secured my rifle so it didn't bounce around while in hot pursuit across a chisel plowed field. Now a day the young guys all go with the AR15s just laying in the front seat method. One big bump and they can go to the floor board.

What was left of our group dispersed in 2016. Never in 40 years did we have an accident or even an accidental discharge. It pays to be prudent and there is not a coyote in the world worth risking someone getting hurt.

Just a few years ago there was another coyote hunter killed in that same area when he used a makeshift pin in a clevis and then yanked on it with a jerk rope. The clevis went through the back window killing the driver.

The article isn't clear what happened. He may have a case of Glock leg. Never said it was a rifle.

Go Donald Go!!

Oh, I've been here, just don't have much to say. Haven't done any hunting since Joyce died.
