    our chicks are still young 4-8 weeks old so they have been keeped penned in with netting over top.it also gives me a chance to preditor proof my woods:D so they hayed our field today right next to our coop.as soon as they are done have not even finched wrapping the hayan i go out back to see the farmer who hays it an i see a huge male coyote in the field looking for dinner.so i ran back in grab my 308 an feed him some lead.he is now in coyote heaven were he can eat all the chicken he wants.we also had a baby deer we had to chase out of the field so she did not get run over.we got to see her reunite with her mom about an hour later when the field was clear.very cute

    I heard that if you leave the carcass there it will deter any other coyotes from coming around. Supposedly they don't like to see/smell one of their own dead!!

    we skinned the body of a coyote and left the skin connected to the head, and hung it on the fence post, with the head on top. that was me and my dad shotting when i was little. i have since decided to only shoot for meat, or if my animals are being attacked.

    BTW, a .308 ?, dang, you really wanted to give this one a BIG send off !!

    I found a 6.5x55 1916 Mauser in a Pawn shop, paid 225 bucks for it, threw the beat up wood stock to a buddy, bought a synthetic stock for 90 bucks and threw a decent scope on it.

    It makes a GREAT coyote rifle. Dang accurate and an easy shooter.

    I am believing the swedes really did have their weaponalogy to perfection. This caliber has been around for well over a century.
