Pretty rough looking Coyote I got today with my AR 15 that rides on my Polaris Ranger. It was in a freshly bushogged field looking around for food, I whipped out my Rifle and disposed of him.

No matter how many Rifles you own....If you ain't got one with You....
You ain"t got No Rifles......



Check out his TAIL....Its got HAIR on it.
And SKRUSKE.....The reason that Rifle looks so clean is it got Rained on Today.

I think you shot that one in Montana and tied it under the plane on the way home. That's one ugly sumbitch right there!


You sure that ain't a Chupacabra?....I don't think I would have laid my rifle so close to that.

We don't seem to have much Mange here, only the second one I ever killed with a bad case of the mange. Coyote George shot one up on the hill a few years ago that looked about like this one.
Shane, the last day I was in Montana I spotted one at 450 yards headed in the opposite direction at a high rate of speed. Actually i think we were on the way to the Airport and didn't even have a rifle.

We had a bad mange outbreak up here on the prairie in 97. That was the year after the big overland flood that set upon the country. I tend to believe that the flood had something to do with it. There also was a large amount of blackleg occurring in the cattle herds and floods do cause that to happen.

The mange wiped out the fox and coyote populations for the most part. Even the farm dogs and hunting dogs got it.
When it got real cold in February We shot a couple fox and a coyote that were laying in the field, with no fur on their hind quarters and there back legs were froze and they couldn’t run. They say the pups died in the dens from it.
Just now a couple decades later the fox are making a comeback. The coyotes made their comeback after about 5-6 years.
Mother Nature is quite cruel at times.

Damn brother, you did that dog a favor.

Zackly what I was thinking...the poor bastard!

I don't have any warm fuzzy feelings for coyotes or other vermin. But, I DO NOT like to see any animal suffer...and that poor bastard was suffering.

Mange is caused by mites? IDK.
