  1. Big East Texas Coyote

    I don't wanna sound sac religious to the deer hunting crowd, but, I've been tearing the coyotes up around here to the point that I don't even look forward to crawling up in a stand to "wait" on a nice buck to walk out. My wife said I should've got the big coyote taxidermied if I'm not gonna get a buck this year, but I told her I'd just wind up using him for a decoy and messing a good mount up.
  2. Big East Texas Coyote

    I got this one on the same place a couple of weeks ago. He's was taller but not quite as heavy. Real young too-I was surprised he was that big to be so young.
  3. Big East Texas Coyote

    There's bound to be some good genetics over here because the three biggest I've killed were on this place and the adjacent property. The guy that owns the property told me there'd been a group of big coyotes harassing his calves for a while so I've got an open invitation on his place. Coyotes as big as this one could do some damage to cattle. I just hate that I didn't bag this one during a tournament-would've been the jackpot for big yote.
  4. Last night I was doing a little after work calling and couldn't get anything to answer or come in on any distress calls. So I threw up a Hail Mary and did a challenge howl-it did the trick. About 6 min in a big male answered and was close-real close. Switched over to a adult rat distress at about 2/3 volume on the Shockwave and here he came-with what I assumed was a gyp. She stayed at the fence and he got popped at about 320 yards. She was too close to the fence to get her but I tried anyhow-too low. When I picked him up I was amazed at his size. I weighed him on digital scales at the house and he was 63 lbs.! The second largest I've killed was 58lbs. and he came off the adjacent property. He was definitely the dominate male in his territory. What are some of the biggest y'all have taken? I think there's something in the water over here. I hope I can get these pictures to attach.
  5. We had a small tournament this past weekend and with the wind we thought it was gonna be a nightmare. We were wrong. The new Shockwave was worth every penny. Friday night produced a bobcat, a grey fox and 3 coyotes. Due to a misalignment problem with my clip-on night vision all we got was the bobcat. Fixed the problem on Saturday with the NV and brought home 2 'yotes and a big ole male bobcat. The picture is the big male laying on my truck. The second pic is my clip-on nv in front of my Nikon on my .243. If you're thinking about NV, this setup works awesome-especially when your buddy is wearing nv goggles and using an infrared spotlight. They never saw us coming.
  6. Houston County Predator Hunt BTW- sign in and animal check in will take place in Kennard, across from the Country Church cafe at the caution light. I'll post more details this week .
  7. Houston County Predator Hunt We're trying to squeeze in one more tournament before it gets too hot to have fun and I wanted to get the word out. We've actually had six or seven so far but it's always the same bunch of folks and we want to reach out to folks in the area and let them know that it's open to anyone interested. Last months tourney kinda was a dud because we had some sorry weather and a low turn out. We are hoping to make our last spring tournament a good one. I'm not sure what the entry fee will be, but it'll probably be around $200 a team(4 man max). We also do side pots for biggest coyote, bobcat, fox, and coon. We've got a good group of guys that participate over here but we welcome newcomers-makes for some good competition. The payout depends on the amount of teams, so the more teams, the more money you can make. If anybody's interested-reply on here, send me an e-mail easttxsrt8@yahoo.com or give a call at 936/635-2202 and I'll post the rules, fees, check-in location, etc.
  8. Is there any easy way to move it or is it just cut and paste?

  10. PIC'S OF YOUR AR

    This is my custom LaRue/YHM/Stag 7.62x39 AR
  11. PIC'S OF YOUR AR

    This is my go-to gun for coyotes. Remington R-25 .243 w/ Nikon Monarch, Magpul PRS stock, LaRue grip, Troy 13" quadrail and a RRA 2 stage trigger.(still has the ergo grip on it here.)
  12. New 7.62X39 upper has shipped!

    I built a 7.62x39 AR and have had good luck with mine. It's kind of a Frankenstein gun- LaRue upper, YHM barrel, Stag lower, Daniel Defense parts kit etc. It is a great hog gun out to about 200-250 yards using Hornady A-max. The ASC mags have been the best I've found for the 7.62x39 AR. I had to Dremmel a little out of the front of the mag because the rounds were hanging up a bit, but they feed everything I put in them now. You'll like the knock down this thing puts on a hog too.
  13. Welcome aboard!

      Thanks for the welcome. Glad to find a place to discuss some tactics with some Texas guys. It's pretty hard to find people that do a lot of hunting in the Piney Woods-hoping to bump into a few here. We're trying to get people interested in predator hunting here in Houston County by putting on a few tournaments and we've had a decent response. We're trying to draw a bigger crowd for bigger pay outs and so we don't lose the teams we have brought in. I'm hoping some of th...
