Second outing finally saw two, first at 250 yards (pix attached) and one at 150 yards. Both fat females that made the farmer tell me to hunt anytime. I placed my wallet on the ground for size.

 

CZ 527 Varmint in 204 Ruger. The 150 yard shot removed the top of the GH's head.

Nice one!   From the pic I thought maybe it tried to mug you.  :D   How do you like the CZ .204?  I just bought the same rifle in 17 Hornet and really like it so far for rockchucks, but the 204 might be a good step up for a coyote rifle.

Thank you all.

 

Aspencreek, LOL on the mugging..... Never thought about that but no, the wallet was all I had on me for size comparison. I really like the CZ rifles. I bought this one on sale because no one wanted it at the gun shop. It went to a gun bash as a prize but was returned because it was not taken as a prize so I got it for a good price. I get 1/4 to 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards. With a 40 grain BlitzKing I get just under 4000 feet per second and the recoil is so little, I see the bullet hit.
