Yeah Clay.
A leg goes this way the tail goes that way, and they won't give anything for whats left of the hide.

After chasing and calling my Black Lab (Hambone) for about 2 hrs in the rain tonight, the next coyote around here will meet Mr. .375 Ruger African. I can't wait.

good calibers would be 223, 22-250, 25-06, 243, and 12 gauge with appropriate shells and range.

Anything from a .22LR to .505 Jeffrey will do.

Even though they need to be controlled, and getting worse, from the reports, I still feel that a .22 is not humane enough for a quick, clean kill. Now, .223 and up, go for it. That's my personal view.

Clay LMAO!

Jeff4066 - I have cleanly dispatched a few with .22LR at close range. I don't like shooting a .223 close in to the house for obvious reasons. I was also being a being just a little tongue in cheek.....

a 22. to a whatever will work. A big rifle will work as long as you aren't worried about etheics as long as you just want to shoot them.

All of the above. But if ye're going out to buy something to get rid of coyotes, mebbe the .243. It would be a hard choice. In this state, it would be an easy choice 'cause it's illegal to shoot deer with anything smaller, and it's always advisable to go for the economy of versatility, independent of anybody's personal preferences, including my own.
