A couple of summers ago, I came home from coffee and saw my two dogs and three coyotes about 170 yards away, in the neighbor's pasture. My little heeler was aways back barking with her hair standing up (she hates coyotes). My mutt, who is half Golden Retriever and weighs 140 pounds, was wagging his tail as the largest of the coyotes was running around him. The other two were on either side sitting and watching.
I dropped on of the sitting yotes with my 25-06 and the other two took off. I tried a 300 yard running shot on the large one and missed him right under his chin. That would have been a shot to brag about.
