    Called in a beast of a predator last night. 200-250 yard shot made by Cody Pierce with a 22 Nosler. By far the biggest coyote we've ever seen.

    Yup, looks like it's been eating well! Did you weigh it?

    Never mind the "weigh it part." I didn't see the scale picture the first time I read the thread. :bonk:

    We got another one last Thursday. Shot 2 but one still found a way to get up and take off even after having a 120 grain 6.5 Creedmoor hit him. IMG_0243.jpg IMG_0239.jpg

    The rig above is Savage Model 12FV 6.5 Creedmoor with a Athlon Helos Scope and Pulsar Core thermal attachment.

    My main rig (below) is a Savage Model 12FV 22-250 with a Pulsar N355 NV Scope and NightSnipe NS550 IR. The tripod is a heavy one I use for filming with a standard fluid head and I've re-purposed it as a gun mount. The gun clamp is just a rig temporary clamp. Its from a Stedi-Stock kit and I've taped cardboard all around it to protect my gun. Simple yet effective.

    I'm getting funds around for an AR build that will hopefully be a smaller lighter package then what this one is.

    Nice,
    I run the 550 also with my ATN, adds a bunch of weight, but reaches way out there.
    I’ll have to get an accurate weight, gun, scope, IR, and battery pack? 15lbs plus I would guess.
    Looking at the tripod idea.

    The tripod is awesome. I used to use a Primos Trigger Stick but I just couldn't get steady enough and pulled my shots. I missed 3 coyotes so far this year and since I've switched solely to the tripod I haven't missed yet. Knock on wood!!

    I just ordered my AR15 in .223 yesterday and get to pick it up Friday. Looking forward to using something a little lighter and quicker followups then my Savage.
