I shot this deer with a .270 at about 60 yards. I was very high up a pine tree which gave me a steep downward angle at the deer. I hit him between the shoulder blades, he dropped in his tracks.
One thing I forgot to mention in my previous post, this was a 3 1/2 yr. old buck that weighed 175 pounds. I know this deer is no trophy by modern standards, but seeing how he came off public hunting land,with no QDM in place, and no agriculture fams within 40 miles, I think he is a very nice buck.
When calling coyotes, more often than not they will circle on a target they are
coming into and approach from the downwind side. Presumably they do this in
order to align what they smell, with what they are hearing.
This means that you should always have your downwind side camouflaged and have
an open shooting lane. If the area is heavily covered the coyote could come in
take a look and be gone, with you none the wiser.
