    Had a few hours to kill late Friday afternoon so I headed down the hill to the desert. This guy came in very quick to a prarie dog distress on the Foxpro, I didnt even get a chance to start blowing hand calls and he was there. I had to shift myself and shooting sticks and when I did he busted me and started walking away. I lip squeeked and he stopped left broad side at about 75 yards. 95grn 243 Win anchored him hard.

    Nice shot. How much do you think he weighed?

    Not much maybe 20-25 pounds. The desert coyotes are thin. The ones we have around population and in the local national forest get nice and big from eating cats/dogs/goats and deer fawn.
