"Hunting hogs has always been a challenge, but add in Coyotes and it goes to a whole new level. When you book your JAGER PRO TACTICAL BOAR HUNT, you might expect to only shoot hogs. But when things get slow or a coyote shows up, we might just transition to coyote hunting for a bit."
Coyotes show up in the cow pastures and can take down small calves. Not to mention the fact that they wreak havoc on our deer and turkey population. Georgia has recently started a Program called the Georgia Coyote Challenge. This program not only encourages the lethal removal of coyotes for wildlife management purposes, but also presents participants with an opportunity to win a lifetime hunting/fishing license. The season for coyotes is open year-round and there are no bag limits. For more information, visit the Coyote Challenge.
The thermal rifle scope proves to be a great tool when hunting the coyote. The thermal scope allows us to locate and target the coyote from over 1500 yards. It is quite a sight to scan a field and locate a yote at 1200 yards hunting for mice and rabbits. My preferred coyote scope is the Zeus 640x512 75mm thermal rifle scope.
There are several methods we can use to engage the coyote, spot and stalk, electronic calling device or simple mouth squeak. If the coyote is on the hunt and cannot be pulled off their pray, then the spot and stalk works the best. It is truly exciting to set up and call them in. Watching them quickly close the distance, to a range of about 50 yards, before sending a .308 projectile in their direction will certainly get the blood pumping.
