    Has anyone looked into that 2011 Rush 800 Pro-H?
    Looks absolutely amazing.
    I want one.

    Nice work…and pics.
    Kind of looks like he was caught in a snare for a while by the lower jaw and worked out of it? I find it a little hard to believe he could’ve been snared by the lower only, but if he had his mouth open and rolled through the snare just right…who knows.

    definitely like the map…I might have to try adding that in as well.

    Nice work.
    That middle one looks like a light colored, big dog.
    How many males/females?
    Did you see many paired up?

    groomed or not
    Thanks,

    Use the stock barrel, 28″, I think…dont remember.
    I use a full choke (internal, not external…although there may not be a difference).
    I have a super mag, so I chamber 3″ or 3.5″ #4 buck. That will give you a good enough pattern out to about 75 yards…after that; spray and pray….or get out the rifle.

    I have killed coyotes out to 70ish yard with this set up before. The full choke appears to work fairly well. But every gun shoots a little different.

    Good luck and keep fur on the tailgate

    The entrance hole was about the size of a dime. However, he was quartering away and the bullet went in at an angle, I think this made a bigger hole than normal. No exit wound. My opinion is that this caliber is kind to pelts.
    As you can see from the picture, this would have been the exit hole side and there isn’t anything.

    I use full choke and shoot 3″ and 3.5″ #4 buck. Good pattern and deadly up to 75 yards.
    I use the 3″ when I can’t take the mule kick from the 3.5″…or have a bruised shoulder.

    After checking out the specs…the specs and price look a lot like the Nikon Buckmaster 4.5×14 adjustable.

    If you want to come to Ames…Cooner knows what he’s doing and he has great dogs.
    This time of year really sucks for hunting…we need a little bit warmer weather and they have to be running. However, I am optimistic we will be out in the woods again before Feb.

    Good luck,

    Nice lookiing coyote there…look like a good fur and he is a hog.
    Any bigger and he could be called a wolf.

    Good shooting.

    Here is the data behind from what I can find.

    BUCKEYE MUZZLE
    December 14, 2009
    12/14/09 – Stephens reports “It unofficially has the longest
    main beams ever recorded at 35 1/8″ and 34 1/8″ green. It will likely set a
    new mark for non-typical in OH with a Muzzle Loader.”

    NOTE: The longest main beams for a non-typical whitetail in B&C records are R33-6/8 and L32. This buck was also taken in Ohio and score 209-1/8 net NT.

    Brian Stephens of Clayton, Ohio with a buck taken on 11/30/09 with a muzzleloader. Unofficial green gross of 249-5/8, netting 232-1/8.

    You can find it on here. Boone and Crocket keeps the website posted with updates and they are discovered.
    Check it out.
    It is definitely a monster.

    Thanks guys.
    I’m just happy I figured out how to post a darn picture finally. Photobucket was easier to find the right image code than snapfish. I think that was my problem with snapfish, never had the right web address for the photo.

    Smccall – yep, I use the .204 for all of my predator hunting, with coons being the only exception. The bullet appears to have actually went through this time. However, after looking at it more closely; I don’t think the second shot made it through…which is why I didn’t see it right away. I would say this is more the exception than the rule. Normally, those 40 grain Vmax fragment pretty quickly and I don’t get an exit hole. I really like this caliber and that round by the way. The recoil is minimal, I almost always get to see the hit in the scope. It shoots flat and true.

    DuckMaster – We have used both an e-caller from Foxpro and mouth calls. Today we tried out Cooner’s new E-caller from Foxpro. The remote is awesome because we can place it away from us and that gives us a little bit better chance of not getting busted. We used cottontail in distress if I remember right, fairly low volume. I have also been using the ruffidawg by Les Johnson, howler/distress calls from Randy Anderson, and then if it’s not too cold, the cottontail distress by Sceery. The Sceery call is good, but it is a closed reed and thus not very versatile. I don’t use it too much. Closed reed calls freeze up in no time and then you’re done till it thaws.

    Prime – Sounds like you were running around in our neck of the woods this afternoon. Yeah I live in Ames and tend to do most of my hunting within a 30 mile radius of Ames. Some south of Boone on the river where all of that public is. Today we were east of 35 probably not too far from where you were driving…I saw a set of truck tracks that looked like someone pulled into a section to take a shot or spot and then jammed out; we joked today that was probably Tom… 😀 I have been spending more and more time around the Cambridge area…I like it over there and we tend to see a fair bit as well. I just need to make to a few more doors so I can get a few more green lights. If you hunt over there and want to team up some time…just send a message. Otherwise, we might pass on the gravel some day and I’ll be waving in a gray truck.

    I have 600 gram Rocky’s and my feet were cold today after being outside sitting for 20 minutes. I need to keep moving or this cold is too much for 600. I think I will go 800 or 1000 on the next set; which I am due for any week now.

    Vmax…I plan on skinning it out. I will probably recruit Cooner to help me out, he is the fur specialist.

    I couldn’t do it today because my day got cut short when I had to go pick up my daughter. Plus, it was darn cold today, my fingers would have froze and the coyote was already stiff as can be by the time we got back. I wrapped him in plastic and he is in my deep freeze.
    I will thaw him out later and skin him then.
