    Coyote questions

    I've always killed coyotes, as we've always had some sort of livestock. Never went out hunting them though, alway's just shot them as they came up to the farm. Thinking about coyote hunting, so I figure I should ask some questions. 1). What's a good round for Coyote hunting? I've always...

    Legal Coyote Trap?

    I know a gentleman that has good success trapping coyotes. When I asked how he trapped them, he stated that he used 2" treble hooks, similar to the ones used for turtle traps in trot lines. He's had his best success using deer liver. He hangs this set up about 5' off the ground, on a cable. When...

    Coyote pack mousing a field

    The things you see, when you don't have your rifle. :smiley_depressive: I was driving about a half mile north of my house, headed to the range with 3 handguns. I look over into a wheat stubble field, about 150 yards out and I see 4 coyotes. They appeared to be "mousing" and combing the area...

    Help me choose a new coyote rifle!

    I'd like some suggestions for a new coyote rifle. My criteria is: * Larger than .223/5.56 caliber (I like how dead my .25-06 kills varmints). * Semi-auto action...maybe a lever-action. * Doesn't have to be an AR platform, but nothing wrong with it. H&K, Steyr, BAR, etc. * Open sights or...

    Doe vs. Coyote

    Over in coyote land I got a cool series of photos of a momma doe chasing away a coyote so she and her fawn could feed in the clearing. I like how she pins her ears back in the second photo.

    Who uses larger calibers for coyote?

    I used to use an AR, in .223, for coyotes. After having several runners, I switched to a .25.06 and the running has stopped. :smiley_bril: I really enjoy the ergonomics of the AR platform, for hunting and have been considering another one. However, this time I'm going to start out with...

    Coyote Cam

    I changed the card in one of my cameras and was excited the readout listed 451 photos in two weeks and hoped I would finally see something worth shooting. All of the pictures were coyotes :tantrum: The landowner has been seeing a pair with 6 pups. The camera must be close to their den. I...

    Intersting coyote problem
