Default What should I kill it with?

What should I use for a coyote? A rifle? A shotgun? Give me some ideas for ammo too, buckshot for the shotgun, .22 mag for the rifle?

In the mean time; Welcome to the FTF!

I'd use a rifle. A shotgun is a short range weapon and a Coyote isn't going to let you get that close. .22 Mag maigh do the job; IMO, .223 would be the minimum.

If your close enough a shotgun with # 4 buckshot will work very well. For a rifle I would use nothing smaller than a 204. I have 3 rifles that I like to carry. For up close and personal, out to 275 yrds or so, I carry an AR with eather a 223 upper or a 204 upper. For reach out and touch them I carry eather a 22-250 or a 6-284, both wildcat you would not want to mess with. A good 243 or 25-06 or anything close should get you out to 500 yrds. or alittle farther with a good drop chart and a range finder.

thanks for the input. I can get my hands on a .223 maybe. How about a 30-06 for a rifle? and dunerunner, I think I made an introduction a LONG time ago, but thanks for the welcome again

I know alot of guys who use the 22-250 for deer,cayote, and pretty much everything else. It has a pretty good flight path and good range.

It should start with a "2". .223, .243, or .270. Coyotes aren't very approachable, so shotguns are pretty much out. I spent many a morning and evening trying to call them in when I was younger and never had any luck, but it was nothing to step out on the porch in winter at night and see several around the barn.
