I love to call coyotes, and have been fortunate enough to harvest my fair share. Over the years I've seen some amazing displays of toughness and determination from coyotes after they take some lead. I'm curious to hear some of the stories from you veteran callers?
This past weekend a buddy and I were calling. Coyote came in from my left, popped out about 10 yards away. I was busted but I swung the gun anyway and missed the shot as he took off. My buddy started howling and the coyote stopped around 200 yards for one last look back. I knocked him off his feet with a 150 grainer from my .308 and he rolled out of sight. We walked over and found the shot had knocked him off the edge of a 30 foot arroyo, blood everywhere, with a trail leading back up the opposite side, which was a vertical clay wall he literally clawed up. Finally found him piled up after another 100 yards, missing his heart/lungs but still trying to run. I've seen some tough coyotes but that one takes the cake!
