a 17 rifle
223 is a good round
a .22 will work if you are within 50 yards
Coyote coming in dead on, shooting it from stem to stern with a 338 Win Mag!
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.
22LR to A10 Wart Hog 30mm Cannon and a couple Hellfire Missiles!
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.
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.
the bigger the better
but a .17 wll work
how about a 4 bore
maybe even a punt gun
A 12gauge with 00 buckshot
7mm remington magnum is a little heavy but i heard a realy good cartridge is th 22 - 250
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.
223 or 22-250 good range plenty of nock down
you need a rifle that is very accurate and has long range.
