    We do not get any big predators over here in the uk, but Love to hunt me a wolf and if i lived over there i think i would live for coyote hunting and probabyly do as much as i could with a shotgun just for the sake of it. Any wolf or Coyote Hunting pics? I love watching the Skinny O’Neil "supressed" videos on youtube you People are so lucky having Bigger predators to hunt i still like fox shooting in the off season here though gives me a flavour of what the bigger Predators would be like.

    MATTY,

    I have not lived in wolf country but have called some coyote and other smallish predators.

    I think my son was about 15 here. Cold, cold morning. -30ish. I had him positioned to my right and all I could see were dogs milling about around the 500yd mark. I hear BANG! BANG! and watch three dogs (they're referred to as dogs in some locales) sprint away. I'm as mad a as a father can get and yell off to my right "Great shooting! How about letting them come to the call next time?"

    He replies: "I got a dead dog 50 fuckin' yards in front of me!!!"

    I never saw that dog approach due to terrain. I forgave the language.... Grin.

    Another one he got a couple years prior.

    He hit it too far back with the first shot (didn't bark it to a stop) but was able to finish it out with his second.

    Sometimes they hold and won't commit. I think I called in seven here.

    500yds through a Leupold 6X42 for scale.

    One got brave. Big mistake.

    The kids here that hunt coyotes hardly ever get a shot under 300 yds. The ones at my school seem to prefer 300WM over all other calibers, too.

    @Deflave Sr. where are you? I can’t imagine having wide open prairies if you’re in South Fla.

    Those were taken in north central Montana. I lived there for 10 years and only recently moved to Florida.

    I have had to take some long pokes at some dogs but the vast majority of my shots were well under 200.

    MATTY,

    This pic is of my brother and the dog he smoked after traveling to visit. He lives west of Chicago. We were stomping around looking for deer or elk and I saw this guy book it. Told my brother to get down and gave him a pack to shoot off of.

    I squeaked, I howled, and I rabbit cried like a baby. He wouldn't budge.

    I ranged the dog and told my brother where to hold.

    Legit 600yds per Mr. Leica.

While taking a break from bikes I dedicated my free time to fishing, hunting and training up our pup. She sure doesn’t suck.

    Im looking forward to doing a bit of grouse hunting this fall with the dog. Its good grizzly country, and not good shotgun country, the birds flush from the ground and sit in a tree and look at you. a 22 pistol, or 348 rifle with round ball loads works great. I take the rifle either way, so may as well use it as the pistol.

    The malamute bird dog. All my mals have loved bird hunting.

    From my deer stand in fall of 2009, two months after a heart attack.
    I remember being pretty dang thankful to still be around and to be out in the woods.

    I love all these pictures. It reminds me of the time when me and my father were going to hunt ... little birds actually.

    Not sure if it's readable, when my son was 9 , I took him up to the hunting camp for a weekend of deer hunting.
    We climbed this knoll to look around and sit for a while not knowing we would be in the middle of a moose love battle.
    Couple or 3 bulls fighting over a cow. Very intimidating for a 9 y/o.
    I made him write about it and framed it for the camp wall.
