my buddy has some property in the IE, lots of dogs out there so he invited me out for a shoot. the first trip, we saw one way off but some bikers came through and chased him out. later, at a different stand, we had 2 running in on a string, then they stopped and paused for a minute, one jumped into a thick clump of grass and came out with a rabbit. we sat and watched them for a few minutes then more runners came through and they were off. it was fun watching them though, they were tossing that rabbit around like a killer whale does with a seal, they were just playing with a dead rabbit. needless to say, they lost interest in my foxpro once they had a real meal. saw 3, killed 0.
 
last friday, second trip out we hit this guy early, first stand. saw another one just about 1/4 mile further. hit him but he was gone into some thick brush and we couldn't find him. i'm using a .17, those things don't make very big holes so it's got to be a solid hit to drop him fast. my buddy dumped on him with his 10-22, he jumped a few times but, like i said, never found him. saw a third one but he was way off again, never came in all the way. this trip, saw 3, killed 2, one more quickly than the other.

i don't know about the cross breeds, i just used the term dog becasue it's shorter than typing coyote....

Steve, these are feral dogs mating with wild coyotes?
