Re: .17 HMR for coyotes?
I have pretty much read everyones comments on here and was just looking for insight into getting my own 17 to take with me and my son small game hunting and if we got bored try to call in some yotes. Lot's of opinioins on here, about "ethical hunting" and "long range sport hunting" and what not. But I still haven't read a thread that gives me any reason not to buy a 17 to take hunting with my lil boy for squirrels and rabbits and if we bet bored why not try to call in a "yote" My son's lil gun is the henry youth 22, I kinda love that gun so was leaning towards the henry 17 hmr. Not looking at hitting anything farther than a 100 yards mind you, just getting my son into it and learning a gun and being respectful around it. It sounds to me that at 100 yards or less if me and my son are not successfull getting any rabbits or squirrels, we can have some fun on the farm and try to call in some yotes into a certain range and the gun is ok? Right?
