Re: What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

Song dogs is a common term for coyotes in Oregon too.
Saber-tooth buzz worm= rattle snake
Speed goat= antelope
Sage rat= ground squirel
whistle pigs=prarrie dogs(not in Oregon)
Thunder chicken= big tom turkey
Swamp donkey= can refer to Black Tailed Deer or Rosevelt Elk in the Coast Range
Prarrie chickens= sage grouse etc.
Some of the terminology is well known, some more local. A Leurgeon is a mythical beast known to steal sox, ammo, essential camping/hunting/fishing supplies, and make weird noises that require investigation in the middle of the night. A.K.A Trolls
I dont know what you guys down south call Gators, so your not alone in the odd terminology of critters Chas1. Plus youve got fish Ive never hered of too.

Winmag, thanks for the list...can't promise I'll remember them all. Gators are known as Troubleespecially in da swamp or a John boat that's smaller than the Gator you just trolled up on.

I'm not sure how I replied as Swift One. That is an old OLD forum name. i heard song dogs a while back and it stuck like glue. Another fav is Hillbilly Duck Hunting= crow hunting.

Re: What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

Well, we've taken this thread on a round about ride! I'll try to get back in line. I am surprized at the number of larger calibers used/mentioned here. I must be gettin' old and soft as, more and more, I lean toward the 6.5MM's and smaller, especially when I'm popin' at vermin.

I have a Ruger #1 in 22-250 w/ a 6-18x Swift. I've heard nothing but good things over the years about the 22-250 but true... you should stay away from the shoulder with the fragmenting bullets.

Re: What's your caliber of choice, for coyotes?

I started using a Savage 99C in a 308, 130gr HP. That was a fun gun, then I got into a BLR 81 in a 270 135 gr Sierra Matchking HPBT with R-19, great grouping 1.5" a 200yrds sandbag on the front. I am presently setting up a BLR Lightweight 243 for my son, 85 gr Sierra Matchking HPBT with R-19, took a crow @ 140 yrds off a fence post, very impressed. We had a bounty on the feet of coyotes in Saskatchewan, furs are worthless, 270 makes a little mess, but I'll guarantee no runners. I love my 270, it took 15 deer the first hunting season, it's abit of gun for coyotes, but a great all arounder. Haven't had the 243 long enough to say, it shows alot of promise, but I love the feel and sound of my 270. I'd like to try a 300 mag, time will tell. Tell me if I'm crazy???
