Default looking for a new gun

for small game like fox and coyotes. i want something somewhat quiet like a 22. for hunting at night without people hearing. i want to be able to shoot around 100 yards with a scope. i was thinking like a 17.

.22 mag should do the trick with well placed shots.

That varies widely. The rifle itself could be a couple hundred bucks for a Marlin up to $700 for a Browning T-Bolt.

RIMFIERS ARE NOT FOR HUNTING COYOTES. Do it right and get a centerfire.

If you are stuck on being unethical then keep shots to under 100 yards. Yotes are tough I have seen them take a 6mm to the chest and run off.

I'll object to that, .22WMR has been quite successful on coyotes up to 150 yds. Kinda depends on the shooter & whether or not he put enough scope (at least 12x-16x) on the rifle to make headshots at that range...but it does the job.

For longer than 150 yds and up to 1000 yds...6.5 Creedmore


.17 is definitely not enough. Even the guys that love .17 won't do coyote with it around here.
