    That was a good read. That is the boat I am in using a .06 & .308. But the big diffrence is Minnesota woods swamp. I have been out deer hunten with my bow seen coyote 40 yards away more than once (not leagal for coyote hunten) so I just watched & learned. As for bullet drop practice practice practice know your rifle. Witch brings me to what bullet to use I hand load. :rolleyes:

    Very informative. I like to backpack hunt for predators so I carry a light weight rifle. Specifically a Marlin lever in .357. It isn't a 30-30, so I need to keep the range close. To determine my effective range, what energy level should be the minimum to harvest an average coyote?

    Joe, I enjoyed your article very much. Your emphasis on the 3 rules of shooting really struck home. Those were rules my dad used to talk to me about 40 years ago.
    Thanks again.
