Custom AR-10 .260 for everything at any range to 1000yds.

Mini 14 (custom) in 6.8 SPC every day truck gun for anything out to about 600yds.

.204 Ruger CZ custom bolt gun for small things out to 600, sometimes a wee bit farther if the wind is right.

7mm STW 700 custom from the Rem Custom Shop, for anything I can see and just have to kill.

Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

You are my kind of hunter! When I made my first reply to the original question, I forgot so many weapons that I am now humbled by your eloquence. I also used so many other toys that I did not list that I would now do so;
A High Standard SD .22 pistol, several different .45s, a cheap old fiberglass one piece recurve bow of 35 pounds draw and a M-60D Machine gun . ( Off the cost of South Viet Nam for shooting sharks from the air.) I never got the chance to use a sword, spear or knife for hunting although I did get to use a Explorer folding boot knife once by accident.

Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

I shot my first coyote with a bow, but I was not intensionally hunting coyotes...I was in a treestand and he happened by. Just the same, he was a 40 lb. male and I'll never forget it.



I used to carry a Rock River Arms A4, as a main weapon and a Smith&Wesson M&P 9mm to finish them off. However, I had a lot of "runners" with hits from the AR. No fault of the weapon, but I felt the need for more power to finish and/or knock them down, so I switched to a .25-06.

Now, I carry a Mossberg 500 Turkey Special (3" chamber & 20" barrel), as my main weapon. I used a .680" Carlson choke tube and 3" Dead Coyote or Remington HD ammo. My back up weapon, to any long range possibilties is a Stevens model 200, in .25-06. This combination has proven deadly with no runners.

Good hunting, Bowhunter57
