I was sorta looking at the end of June or early July as I will (hopefully) have my rifle back from being worked on & re-sighted in by then. Carrizo is one of my favorite places and sounds good to me. So, if my gun is ready by the hunt date picked, I should be there.
I'm game for a hunt if you can set it up for the first 2 weeks of the month so I don't have the darn service wagon lol. To answer your question about temp it can get pretty warm around here in the summer, last year got to 105 a few times down in the 90's at night.
I don't believe a coyote will appreciate being shot with any type of bullet weight so your 30/06 should do fine. In fact some of the smaller more fragile varmint rounds may do more damage than the '06 depending on what "type" of bullet your using?!
T F Coyote those dates sound good too me, I won't have the service wagon so I can go. As far as that 30-06 goes load up some 125 gr rounds for it, if it works in an old moisin it should work in a stronger 06
The month of May is no good for me, but early June would be ideal.
Smokin54, to get to this magical place, just click your heals together and say "There is no place like Carizzo, There is no place like Carizzo" :laffin-yellow:
Just kidding, Carizzo is a fun place with a lot of smart coyotes, to get there, take 5 fwy north towards Bakersfield, off at hwy 166 westbound to the town of Maricopa, go straight after the Stop sign up the grade until you reach Soda Lake road, take a right and it will lead you to the Carizzo Plains.
How does June 1st & 2nd sound? Anytime the 1st 2 weeks of the month are good for me. Smokin54, at the top of that grade (Grocers grade) that Hook told you about there is an old abandoned gas station there, turn right there watch the road though just past the kiosk on your right side it goes to dirt road so watch your speed, it caught me off guard the first time I went up there.
"Smart" coyotes, Hook?! I couldn't agree more! With me it's even more difficult, being a not so smart coyote "hunter".
I may have to wait until the following coyote hunt, as my mini 14 is not due back from the custom shop until then and would still have to go to the range. However, if it does return early then I should be able to make it.
Been mid March since I've done any hunting or shooting and I'm having severe withdrawals. Guess I better dust something off and at least go to the range.
Thanks jmabbott888, I do appreciate that. Actually I would love to shoot the 250 savage lever as I more than once have thought about getting one myself. Very nice rifles indeed.
I do have some other (deer type) rifles I could use, but sorta stuck on the mini right now as that was one of the (many) reasons I originally bought it for. Don't think I could satisfy my itch if I used anything else right now. But then again.....?!?!
