Lessoned learned many years ago which helped me bag this coyote:
1. Natural point of aim. Figure out where your most likely shot area is and then make sure that you are not fighting your body twisting and contorting to try to get a shot off at a hardcharger who by the way may not be around long.
2. Patience! To often we get into panic mood and just start taking low percentage shots just to throw lead. This coyote was running from my right to left at a good speed at approximately 25 yards. It didn't like something when it was right smack in front of me. I opted to try to hang up the coyote and by its body language I thought the odds were good for it to check up so I still held fire at a moving target. It checked up at 109 yards and subsequently died. Even when things appear to be coming unglued stay patient. Sometimes good things come to those who wait. At least thats what my mama always said lol.
