I would shoot one at 200 yards with my 22 if it's all I had, and I'd be sure to brag about it when I killed him! Nice shot

22 Mag is good medicen for yotes, In fact so is you 300 wm, As for what to do with them after you shoot em. Have you tried standing over them and wizzing in the wound just to watch it froth up?

Did I mention I would like to exterminate every last coyote in Ohio, I have finally accumulated the arsenal and knowlage needed to make long range shots on groundhogs and the yotees move in and eat up all the targets.

Re: .22 MAG too small for coyotes???

I have killed many coyote with the 22 mag. It is plenty medicine for coyote at 125 yards or less. I use the 30 grain Hornady v-max and shoot for the neck or head. I would like to try the new Hornady personal defence loads on them. The reason I think many are against using them is the fact that there are little if no blood trail left from the round therefor many may be lost from the lack of ability to find blood to track them. But if you shoot them in the neck, or head they tend to drt.

Re: .22 MAG too small for coyotes???

Yes 22 mag is good for 125 to 150 yds. I shot one for years before I decided I wanted more range and got a 25-06 then a 220 swift then a 22 K hornet and several 223s and a 243. Now I can't ever make up my mind on what rifle to take LOL I had my doubts on a 17 hmr but not anymore. I shot a female coyote a couble of weeks ago off my porch at 100 yards it didn't hit a rib and I had a pass through. exit hole I could put my finger in. Surprized me.

Re: .22 MAG too small for coyotes???

I loved your question because it gives me a chance to brag about a shot that my Dad made last year. While out checking his fall calf crop he caught a coyote lurking in a nearby ditch eyeballing the new calves. So, he pulled out his open site lever action marlin 22mag and dumped the dog from 570 yards away. No scope no range finder just using the force Luke Skywalker style.

It was actually the fourth shot when he finally hit the coyote. On the first shot the coyote was about 300 yds away and he missed. This got the coyote running. Then Dad missed on two more running shots and then this coyote stopped and looked back after crossing another ditch and the 4th shot nailed him in the chest and he dropped. Dad and I were both stunned. When we paced it off it was 570 yds and the coyote was graveyard dead.

That day I learned a few lessons. 1) Dad can still shoot. 2) If the 22 mag hits the Coyote it will die. 3) If you are being shot at, don;t stop to look.

Have fun hunting.
