Shot my first Coyote today. He has come around at least 5 times that I know of. The first time was when I saw buzzards out my window one Sunday about a month ago. A fox had go one of my free range chickens, which attracted the buzzards. When I went out with my pistol to try to shoot the fox the coyote ran up from my left. He was attracted by the buzzards. Next 2 times I saw him I could not get a shot. My wife saw him yesterday but the dog scared him off before she got a gun. I set up a ground blind today behind my shop at the edge of the yard. In the afternoon the chickens like to scratch in the ferns behind the back yard. He has been coming in from the left side of the property where the woods are closest to the yard. I saw him out the left side window of the blind and waited till he got in front so I could get a good shot. He popped his head up the see where the rooster was he was stalking and I shot him in the neck with my 10/22 with a 3x9x40 scope on it. Hit the jugular vein, wind pipe and lodged in the spine. The only thing he could move till he died was his head.

I did not keep the pelt. I posted it on facebook and a friend of my son asked if she could have it for a class she is taking at USC so I told her she could.

I shot it with 22lr. hollow point. It fell over facing back the direction it was coming from and never got back up.
