    Re: Coyote Abatement

    out of 100 coyotes shot about 80% are shot at 60 yds or less.
    That's my facts.
    Bushmaster heavy bull 24" barrel, #2 stock AR15, bushmaster heavy 16" HBAR and #3 is 16" QA scope, 3x56 is quickly acquired and shot.
    Scope has Laser pointer internal red beam excellent large sight picture. Removed for sale by the US government.
    I used to have a free of charge "Coyote Control" service and would come and take care of problems in Carson Valley area, Carson City, Reno, Fallon.

    Re: Coyote Abatement

    I just bought a rifle scope mounting kit. These were my impressions: functions admirably for introducing an extension appropriately. I purchased this to introduce an extension on a Savage LRPV utilizing 2 piece Leupold base/rings. The pack made quick work of adjusting the rings and after that lapping them in. The dimensions were likewise helpful for leveling the degree to the rifle. This is an easy decision in the event that you can adhere to basic directions.

    Re: Coyote Abatement

    Well I'm still at it... Chasing coyote's that is.. Going out tomorrow with the new hot rod 5.56. Got it sighted in Monday and it's a tack driver. I built this one myself and got really anal about having things perfectly aligned and squared. The scope windage came in .4 mrad from factory zero and the elevation at 100 yards is -9.6 MRAD. I have to dial it down because I have a 20 MOA rise on the mount so I can get out to 1000 yards. I would run out of adjustment if I didn't have it.

    The rifle is a 5.56 NATO with a lot of hidden goodies. The scope is a Schmidt and Bender PMII 3.5x25x56. It will focus crystal clear down to 30 meters which is amazing.



    That red bull is the corner target of a 12x12 at 100 yards. It's the size of a dime.


    This was a different day but is the whole target just to give you a little perspective.

    Deer Rifle. Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel upper. I figured the best way to get the perfect upper was to buy it from the company that invented the 6.5 Grendel.

    The nice thing about the AR platform is that I now have 3 rifles and just one lower.

    The 6.5 is a heavy barrel and steadys up quick. I'll take it out to the range tomorrow. I have a 4rnd legal mag for it and a 10 rnd that I'll probably never use.

    I know the regulations are somewhat contradictory so I emailed dnr.

    1-"Coyotes are an unprotected species in Nevada.*They can be hunted by both resident and non-residents in the state without a hunting license.
    However, if you are selling the fur, or trapping coyote, you will need a trapping license."
    2-"Every person who takes fur-bearing mammals by any legal method or unprotected mammals by trapping or sells raw furs for profit shall procure a trapping license."

    Thanks, I know the Regs and they're written so they can catch poachers with the least amount of legal action. I'll probably take a hide occasionally once I get a little more comfortable.

    The Bishop is fine tuned for G3 competition and doesn't like a full clip. The gas block is adjustable but it will not fully cycle with more than 10 rounds in a 20 round clip or 15 rounds in a 30. I reported the problem to Merrisa Bishop (she built it) and I'm waiting for a response. In the mean time, I ordered a Noveske upper which I know will be perfect.

An article appeared in this months NRA American Hunter where the author who hunts yotes a lot changed from 2.23 to .22-250 because he said he was hitting them with it and had too many get back up and run on him. I really want to try to preserve some hides from them.
