Your Fur Rifle and load: Coyote, Fox, and Bobcats

For you guys that Hunt for Fur whats your cartridge and load, bullet etc........... hows it working out for you.

I found that the .19 Badger with the 32gr Double Hollow point and 17.8 gr of AA 2200 works great almost on exit holes ....................

Velocity is right at 3600

Re: Your Fur Rifle and load: Coyote, Fox, and Bobcats

If i can get them in close like 200 yards or less then i like to use my 222. rem using a 40 grain nosler over a load of benchmark going about 3500 fps. i haven't looked at the powder charge in a while, but i think about 23 grains. goes in and doesn't come out.

How does that load work on fox or cats.................

My load will take out a Marmont without an exit hole...............

Sometimes you get small cats coming in and most of the time I let them go and consintrate on the older toms. Fox also...............

There are not many fox here in the spokane area and i have not been lucky enough to shoot a cat yet. A few times i have side shot the coyotes in the meat no ribs and same effect, small almost no entry size and no exit, never cut one open to see dammage in side but skinning shows the bullet never reached the other side

Re: Your Fur Rifle and load: Coyote, Fox, and Bobcats

You live in a beautiful area. I was in a small town south of you called Colten. Really nice people, lots of Bird Hunting. Drove into a really small town Called Johnsville and spent the night in Wattsville. That whole area was really facinating. To this day I have never eaten apples as good as the ones I had up there nothing has ever come close..............I dumped a coyote while driving through some apple groves on my way to a school that my son attended up there.
I would bet you have some great duck hunting in the area also, what about Chukar?

Right outside of Reno, Nevada...................

Out here its all about IF we had a good chukar hatch OR IF we had a wet winter so what few marshes we have will have water in them, and IF I draw a Deer tag, which I did and an Elk tag.................

If the IF's dont pan out then there are always plenty of Coyotes and Bobcats to make up the difference.
