I have never seen a black Coyote. I have seen lots of grey and a few brown and even one that was a red color but never black...
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 23 of my guns are 45/70 govt 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
