Well, if you are finishing them off in a trap or snare, 22RF works just fine, but that isn't really what this topic is about. If you are shooting them with a 22Rf because that is what you have when you see them, fine, but not my choice if I am specifically trying to shoot wolves.Wow - Looks like I'm doing it wrong. I better use something other than a 22 LR.......mauser
Just to be clear this is a long range hunting page and people are specifically targeting a long range round for wolf hunting. Clearly up close and personal a 22 could be damaging but it’s not a choice anyone should be making for a wolf hunting rig even if bush whacking. It’s an amazing good small game cartridge but a wolf isn’t small gameI see your point but I am not a Wolf hunter. When I am in the bush, I have a 22 with me and that's what I use.
Maybe yes, maybe no. How many wolves have you killed with the 22rf. Not counting trapped or snared, the closest I have shot a wolf was 150 yards. Most were well over 250, some over 900 yards. Even over found carasses for attractant we set uop over 200 yards away. I spend a lot of time in bush with a gun in hand and gun or not only once have I seen a wolf closer than 50 yards.I guess I have a lot to learn..........Boozhoo
