Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

I've casually over the years tried calling bear and cougar without success. This year I hope to put enough time in to fulfill this goal. Historically I've packed: Ruger .44 carbine with any good 270-300 gr load. My Winchester model 70, synthetic stock, loaded with 220 gr Nosler partitions, or my .375 H&H loaded with just about anything. All wear scopes of about 1.5-5. I've shot bear with all of the above, and cougar with some (not called). I can also vouch for the fact they work well on predatory housedogs up to the Rottweiller size.

    We change up a little, meaning me and my sons. In tight spots ( close quarters) we use our shot guns and semi-autos 223. Open areas it's 22-250 and shot gun if they keep coming and some times suprize us. I always carry my 12 ga.

    I use a reminton 22-250 and 222 most of the time but for the ones that are further out than 200 yrds i use a #1 ruger 25-06 but that is when they dont want to come in any closer

    I can't make a vote on the poll!

    I've shot one coyote, it was with my falling block. I've gone hunting them yotes with my ARs.

    Where I grew up, ferrel dogs, fell into the same category as coyotes. That's what the GW said.

    Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

    Currently, do not own a bolt, so if I go out, it's mostly with my AR15 custom. However, when and if I go with buddies, they have bolt actions... my wife comes along, or it's near the house, then a shotgun is nearly always with us.

    Only own a 20g at the moment.

    Any moral objections to using Vietnam era mines ?
