I've been getting in some coyote hunting this summer and have learnd a few new things about coyotes. Out here in New Mex, up in the high sierras around 9 to 10,000 feet its not uncomin to get an after noon rain shower. They usually only last a few minutes but always bring the temp. down 10 to 20 degrees. Windy when they start but usually very calm afterwards. Right after the rains its PERFECT to call a coyote or two, calm clean air for them to really put their nose to work, calm cool air to run around in, calm and quite to put their eyes & ears to work and usually willing to come to your call very quick. This last month I've taken three all right after a rain. I'll bet this works anywhere. Coyotes like it when they can use ALL their sense's, just be ready for a quick response. I also have a new coyote gettin gun. I have a T/C Dimension in 204 and just love it for coyotes. Think I like the Berger 35 gr. better than the Sierra 39 grain bullets, but both are working very well. If you want to save the hide, use the Bergers as the Sierras blow a hole in the hide about the size of a tennis ball. Any body else using the 204??? This rifle with a Leupold red dot VXR scope has been givin these yotes fitts, great fun.
