Walking to where I was going to make a set tonight, I bumped a coyote near the edge of a small finger of woods. It was limping along and with the wind it couldn't smell me, but it walked (limped) back into the woods and disappeared. I went on to my set only about 100 yds from the spot. Set up and waited about 10 minutes then turned on the caller. 2 minutes later from the opposite side of the field 300 yds across out popped a coyote. She came trotting in toward the caller and sure enough she was limping. She came within 50 yds. and I shot her. She turned and ran and I fired a second shot at her butt. She fell about another 75 yds. out. I had hit her with the first shot, just was a bit farther back than it should have been. Her foot was gone, I figure she chewed it off while in a trap. It was all healed and she was in nice shape other than that. When I got her hung up to skin I noticed the tail was drooping funny. While skinning the tail, I found a little bloody nick in the skin and the tail bone was broken. Don't know what the chances are of me hitting the tail with a .223 as she ran away, but that's what it looks like.....maybe that's what killed her.
