From the back deck.

Four weeks four yotes! The mange has a pretty strong hold of em around here. It's amazing they can survive below zero temps with no hair! Tough critters.

22-250 closest 130yds longest 270yds. Winchester factory ammo 45 grain jhp 4,000fps. Gun is a Browning a-bolt with a cheap Bushnell 4-12 scope that I have a replacement for when I get time to replace it.

My goodness, 8-32x50

That's to reach out and touch something longrange

it does look like you have the Bushnell dialed it though!

I really can't complain about it. It's held its zero which can b an issue with cheaper scopes. It just falls short in light gathering ability and magnification for prairie dogs at a distance.

You did good to thin the herd. Mange is very contagious with coyotes. Hard to exterminate once it sets in.

Yeah, I'd take the Nikon, too. Nothing wrong with the Bushnell, but Nikon optics are tough to beat.

Those do look like bad yotes. Back in the 70's when their coats were the rage I made a few bucks hunting and selling the fur.

Most high-powered scopes have problems with light gathering unless they have a 100mm objective lens. But a scope with that big of a lens would take a duce and a half to haul it around.

My biggest scope is a Weaver V-24 Classic

I think that last one was smiling at you. Probably enjoying his 72 virgins
The Nikon should let you sight in on them a day ahead.

The quality of glass (I know your a photographer) has alot to do with the light gathering ability. The swaros and ziess' are above the Nikons, Leupolds and others but are considerably more $. I don't think the difference is worth the $ they want.

Those turkeys were from last year. A few days ago I counted 47 of em when I was fillin the water trough.
That buck had been hit by a car or truck. Both his left legs had compound fractures, and somehow he made it at least 250 yards from where the closest road is.
