Jimmy Raines reduced the coyote population at Smuteye by one on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 (see attached pictures).  This accomplishment (along with previously taking a trophy buck, turkey and bass) makes Jim only the 4th recipient of the coveted Smuteye Grand Slam (aka "Smuteye Slam").

"One Shot, One Kill" Raines used a Thompson Center Encore Pro Hunter chambered in 308 Win to take down the predator.  "It came down the sendero on the North Box so I got ready. I shot it from about 60 yards while it was trotting across the lower end of the field."

Raines plans to have a taxidermist prepare a full body mount of the red dog to install in his bedroom above the headboard of his bed. "It's what Lynda has always wanted!"
