sounds like perfect coyote rifle and just a fun shooter. in the process of building a ak-74 but after that i need to invest in a AR. you seem happy with the s&w how much you spend on the barrel if you don't mind me asking

I actually traded my 16" upper it came with and it's Yankee Hill hand guard along with 100 bucks at a gun show. The guy had a few more going for about 700 or so

If you have a sheep ranch, and the coyotes are costing you money, you would probably be more efficient using a baited trap. Traps never sleep.

... unless you actually plan to eat them, or make their pelts into coats.

Otherwise they are not worth the cost of reloading a high power round to bag them with.

Coyotes serve the niche of varmint control in nature, for smaller varmints, such as mice, rats, ground hogs, etc. If you plan to take over their jobs (as varminters) then you are going to spend a lot of money on ammo.

Coyotes are similar to hawks and falcons, in their environmental role.

If you just enjoy killing things, then the USMC has a great program waiting for you. Sign up and volunteer for Afghanistan. Then you can kill armed rags, in a fair gunfight. Ever thought about it?
Do you live in an agricultural area?

Every farmer I know hates coyotes and wants them gone. They are a pest and destroy livestock as well as family pets.

My wife and I both do most of our early coyote hunting during our state's bow hunting season. The rifles and shotguns are used after bow season, as is the muzzle loader. Aproximately half of the coyotes I have taken were taken with my bow. I can reuse my arrows, so please explain to me why you feel I am wasting expensive ammo. You are not the one paying for it.

Coyotes have caused economic losses on all three of the farms we hunt on. Goats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, and family pets have been lost to them several times over the last 7 years. One of the farmers raises animals to feed his family, The other two are selling what they produce to pay their bills. Every animal taken down by the coyotes is more hardship to pay those bills, as they then have to raise double the cost of the lost animal and the expenses acrued in it's care. Our ammo cost is what we pay for all three of our hunting leases, and a way of helping out people who might as well be part of my family. One of many ways we do so.

I am not looking for an arguement, and do not wish to start a fight but, if you are so anti hunting, why are you posting on a hunting sub forum? Live and let live man. That's what I try to do.

Dude is a troll. Don't engage or he'll just bury your thread in nonsense, and then turn to personal insults against your family. Report his idiocy as soon as he says something personal (don't worry, he will), and maybe if there are enough reports we can get this guy banned.

Thanks Trip. I was having the same thought earlier, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me.
