    Put tha 22-250 right on that yotes shoulder and bust him! If you haven't shot one before, yotes and fox have a lot of fur that makes their heart/ lung area look a lot bigger than it is. Come right up the front leg and bust him through the shoulder where there is plenty to shoot at besides hide!

    ICANHITHIMMAN,
    Coyotes are tough customers and I do NOT recommend using anything in rimfire.

    You mentioned having a pest problem. If they're being removed from the planet, then there's no such thing as overkill. Dead is dead.

    After too many runners, I stepped up to a .25-06 and have yet to get anything other than DRT. If you talk to professional coyote hunters, they all use larger calibers to put them down...on the spot.

    This is a fact with my hand up, Ive killed a running coyote at 138 yds graveyard dead with a 22LR anybody that says a 22 mag is not enough aint never tried it. but Florida coyotes rarely get over 60 lbs and thats a big dog.

    I wouldn't be bragging about even shooting at ANYTHING, especially running, at 138 yards with a 22LR!

    SORRY I guess Im just an unethical shooter for shooting at anything under 700 yds. I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I saw another one in my cow pasture after one of my calves.
