Coyote Hunts with 243 WSSM Rifles

One of my favorites things to do is coyote hunt. With four kids and the demands of the family I haven't been able to get out as much as I would like. I end up saving all my kitchen passes to go deer and elk hunting.

Here are a few of the coyotes I have taken the past couple of years with my 243 WSSM rifles.
