I know this should be in the hunting section but I think it would be seen by more here.I`ve been trying to get a coyote for at least 5yrs,and am very proud to say my dream finally came true recently.this particular day I asked off from work because work was slow and I just felt I needed a Friday off.I went into the woods around noon and climbed up in my tree stand like I did a million other times,but this time was different.I got myself comfortable and in about three minutes I look down a well worn path shared by deer and various other animals and here comes a large coyote at a casual pace looking straight ahead,i waited till he came to an opening about 15yds away from me and I gave out a bleet sort of the kind I do during deer hunting,and the coyote stopped in his tracks.I squeezed off a shot with my AZ Rapid .22cal 30ft/lb carbine and it hit right on the top of the head between the eyes and he just dropped right there .I hurried and worked the bolt to put another 18gr jsb in the breech and just put the crosshairs on his head just in case he tried to get up,but he died almost instantly.The pellet entered the skull and hit the right side cracking it and swirled around the back of the skull and exited the left side.I boiled the skull and am going to get the hide tanned,what a magnificent trophy,I believe it is the ultimate animal to get with a 30ft/lb airgun.I always admired and envied others who shot one with their airgun or bow.You just have to be in the right spot at the right time and all the stars have to be in-line.Thanks for letting me share my experience.

Congratulations  Mark,  Enjoyed your experience and there will be many less venison meals by that predator.  Wish you would have posted a pic.

...Meanwhile a neighbor starts posting Reward posters for her lost Malamute..  😓  😓  😓 

J/K there. Congrats on the kill. Sounds like you need a larger rifle to up your game (no pun intended)

Correct spelling sold separately.

Nice shooting, this is worthy of congratulations. They are everywhere around here but hard to get due to property and road constraints. Pics?
