I was sitting on my front porch drinking coffee this morning when a coyote came walking across my field. I slipped into the house and grabbed my .22. I thought she might keep coming closer to the house but she turned around and began to walk back toward the woods. I didn't think I had a chance since the .22 was loaded with short hollow points but I only had one chance when she stopped. Bang. Jump & flop, get up and run about 30 yards and fall. I knew it was a long shot but nailed her. I measured with my range finder and it was 135 yards. Little .22 shorts are more deadly than I thought.

Way to go!! It is surprising that a rimfire short could do that at 135 yds. Where did you hit it?

I don't blame you from being skeptical. If I had not done it myself, I wouldn't beleive it either. I aimed about 18" above her as she was stopped. The little bullet hit her in the heart. Here is a pic of her and my good old Remington speedmaster.
If the pic doesn't copy, I will try again. P.S. - One of the guys that I turkey hunt with and I ended up killing four yotes during turkey season. All of them came to hen yelping. Putting the hurt on them this year.

Here is one of four that was killed during turkey season. Big male. Got him at 15 yards with the 12 ga using 3 1/2 in heavy shot.
