Not so long as you pick them (mines) up when you're done. I'm off my five year Nevada antelope probation (for the crime of drawing a tag) this year and I'd sure hate to find one with my ATV.

I"m in Washington. I think us nonresidents are due in middle April, uncertain as to residents. You've got a ton of public land options in Nevada. A De Lorme book/map at about $20 shows basic ownership of the state. Game Department has some resources. There are maps with more detail if need be, but the De Lorme will get you there and back.

Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

my go to rifle in the past has been my bushmaster using 55gr b-tips, awesome results with whatever I shoot! I just traded this in for a new savage model 12 lrp in .260 however and am building another AR. Most of my yotes have been targets of opportunity however and have used both my kimber .45 and believe it or not my keltec p32, both do just fine with gold dot and I prefer the open sights for running shots.

Re: Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

Where are the other options on the survey????
I prefer lever actions as my rifle of choice and have a number
of custom caliber as well as traditional ones.
It is a very accurate weapon in the right hands.

I'm sticking my neck out a bit but I prefer open sights, and
next to that a red dot or holographic one. Modern weapons
systems sometimes make it just a bit too easy (not that I don't
have them)

Having said that I really enjoy my Ruger ranch with
a scout set up consisting of an Aim-point on an integrated
aircraft aluminum mount.

Jakes

(OK, OK, I know it is "long range hunting" but kills beyond 400 yds feel damn good)

I use a bolt 22-250 Rem. I sometimes use my .17Hmr cz-452.
I have a DPMS lower that I've got to get around and put an upper on so I can get to using that too.

You can get a California legal lower as long as it has one of the magazine release items (i.e. Bullet Button) and then smack whatever upper you want on it. I don't have one but see them all the time in gun shops for sale. If 10 bullets isn't enough for coyotes you need to work on your shooting LOL!

Bolt action .308 with VMaxes, hoping to add a .22-250 barrel to that one real soon.
