    Needs to be a couple more selections in the poll.
    I use all 3 at times.
    Also have used a 10mm pistol twice...

    I will use the same pistol to hunt mountain lions this winter..

    Stay tuned for the post if I connect

    Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

    I hunt with hounds so bobcat or lion I use either 22lr or 22 mag, either in a Ruger Single Six pistol with scope or a Taurus Circuit Judge rifle (also interchangeable cylinder) I mounted a Vortex Daimondback 1.75x5 scope on the Taurus and removed the one screw that holds the shoulder stock on. That way I take the buttstock off and it all fits inside my pack, get to the tree and I pull it out, slide the stock on and am ready to go. For bears I use a Marlin Guide Gun in 45/70 with fiber optic sights.

    Calling coyotes or wolves I will normally use either a Ruger mini-14 with scout scope or a single shot 218 Bee Improved. The 218 will shoot sub-1/4 moa so out to 250 it is my gun of choice unless I am expecting multiple animals. If I really want to reach out there I'll take the 7mm STW, but it is pretty rough on pelts.

    I sit with a Remington 700 243 with a 26" Douglas #5 1-12" in a glass bedded VLS stock it shoots well with 70 gr. bullets and if they flank me up close a old benelli M1 makes short work of 'em.

    ARs aren't really an option over here so tends to be bolt guns.

    I tend to use a .223 CZ 527 for most when out after foxes
    7x64 has accounted for a few when out after deer
    Quite a few have fallen to the Browning 525 and Benelli Super Nova. (when rough shooting (upland as you guys would say) and a few on organised fox drives as well).

    One daft fox even came to have a look at my goose decoys once. Mr Darwin caught up with him the via auspices of a 3" No1 load delivered by Mr Benelli.

    ATB,

    Scrummy

    Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

    For my predator hunting in NEPA, I use a Remington 700 in .30-06, or a Rem 870. I haven't got one yet, but I will! Hopefully will get a coyote this weekend as Santa brought me some brand new calls LOL!
