Yotes are creatures of God. They like any other animal deserve to be hunted ethically. If you have the skills to kill one with a 22 then sure hunt with it, but dont push the envelope of your skills combined with the capabilities of your equipment. They don't deserve to crawl off and suffer before death. I used to hunt avidly, I enjoyed watching my prey die. I no longer enjoy watching that. That being said, I still want them to drop where they stand. Know your and your guns capabilities and don't shoot beyond that.

I wish that were true, but I've seen one or two with shattered jaws thanks to some dickwad with a .22 that thought he could drill in on the move from a long distance.
I don't shoot yotes. But in those instances, you don't have a choice. It's the only humane thing to do.

The true skills of a warrior or hunter is good clean humane kills. Anything less is LESS than ethical or respectable in my book! If you know what I mean, Human or Animal. As a youth I once beat a raccoon to death with a stick which was truly LESS than ethical! I have never forgotten that lesson and can visualize the act today regretfully! Even though from my past and from being a hunter I have the greatest respect for the animals I hunt today. They will die quickly, respectfully, and as humanely as possible or I will stop hunting. Matching skill and the proper equipment to accomplish this is a tribute to the character of the hunter as well as the animal.

i support a quick and humane kill on any animal that there is a need to kill. maybe alot of it is personal ethics and how we were brought up and taught about hunting and shooting. i know that from an early age my brother and i were taught only to shoot when we knew where the shot was going. we were also taught to only kill what we would eat. we were never taught to trophy hunt or to kill for the sport of it. unless a coyote is a threat to your livestock or pets, why kill it in the first place. if it is, then a quick kill is the way to do it then. IMO, 22lr is not near enough gun for for the job.

I wouldn't use it. I think a .22 magnum is the smallest I would use. Wounding an animal is not acceptable.

IMO, if you can't take a shot that results in a clean kill, don't pull the trigger. so if you don't have the equipment or the skill, don't pull the trigger. if you don't understand this or agree with it, then you are the type of person that gives ethical hunters a bad name and you need to go take a hunter safety course. even a rabid or dangerous animal needs to be killed as cleanly as possible.

Personally I would not take a 22lr coyote hunting. I enjoy using my 243 or 30-06 to take them down.

Personally i think a 22lr is a reliable round. I know a guy who shot a grizzly bear with 3 shots of 22 short bullets. But i do agree that if you have a choice get something bigger like 223... My predator gun is a chineese sks without a scope.
P.S. If a 22 is the only gun you have for coyotes its ok. a well placed shot will do the job. limit your shots to 50 yards if possible, but if not a bullet in the head should stop him. 22 lr does not make big holes.

60 yards or less, HEAD SHOT ONLY! IF YOU CAN'T CHOOT'EM IN THE EAR-HOLE, OR EYEBALL, THEN YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE HUNTIN............ESPECIALLY WITH A .22.
