Re: Any Henry Mnt Updates?

How did you do? I had a managment tag also, took an ok 3x3. I was mad at myself for not looking around a bit more before shooting mine. He measured 28", I thought he was wider.

Re: Favorite Rifle?

My fav is my Ruger M77 in the .220 Swift. I had a BSA Panther 3-10X44 on it, and that was THE BEST money I spent on optics. (A svelt $129) The setup would drive tacks all day long at 100 or 200 yards. I've laid down coyotes out to 360 yards, always with one shot. Now it has a Nikon Monarch 6-24X50 w...

Re: New Utah General Season Units

Is there any talk of reducing tags? I was amazed at the numbers of hunters I saw during the rifle hunt in a couple southern areas. I'd be in favor of shutting down the worst units or cutting tags by at least 75% for several years. I agree with you on this. The last couple of years, I've been way di...

Management Bucks

I was just wondering about the Management Hunts this last year. I've read several posts from guys who had those tags, and haven't seen any updates. I had one myself, and as soon as I figure out how to load pictures, I'll post them.

Re: Coyote Rifle Suggestions

I'm a fan of the .22-250. I currently shoot a .220 Swift and it's burn on coyotes. Not impressed with the .223. A friend of mine just got one for Christmas, and has "hit" a couple of coyotes with it already, but they've all ran off, including one at 125 yards. I've never had that issue with my Swift...

Re: Favorite Rifle?

I have a plane jane Ruger chambered in .220 Swift that will drive tacks all day. LOVE this gun. I have yet to have a coyote to run an inch after I pull the trigger. Longest confirmed and witnessed kill is 356 yards.

Re: MuleyMadness Roll Call

Coyotes are my passion, but hunt big game every year. Looking forward to learning more about the great hunting Utah has to off...
