Dogs in the Dirt

Steven K. Ledin,

Our coworker Sean supplies his dad's hunting addiction with products from OpticsPlanet. His dad's name is Patrick, and he's been shooting lots of coyotes lately on his farm near Woodhull, IL. The weather has been cold, and this time of year the pelts are at their prime. Pat's getting 35 bucks apiece for prime pelts right now. His current rig is a Savage 10 in .223 with a Nikon Coyote Special 4.5-14×40 scope, shooting Hornady Varmint Express 55 grainers. He calls his dogs in with the new Primos Alpha Dog game call, currently the best on the market. The three speakers and the remote operation from up to 200 yards away makes a huge difference. You can see what a savvy customer he is by viewing the well-used OPMOD Tac-Pac 2.0 camo bag next to the dog in the picture. OPMOD bags have been around the block, for sure.
