welcome, It's not the preferred round to use against them but it works I've seen a guy take a coyote with a 22 he took one shot into the head and it went down that said that was the only one he got that day. Most people prefer a 223 or a 22-250 something along those lines, But even the 17HMR is a nice round to take the buggers with. Really it just depends on your skill as a hunter and how good you are with your firearm. I even read a article in fish fur and trapping about a guy that hunts them in thick pines with a shotgun so really it's possible but it just depends on your skill and what nature wants to do for you.
