    You'll have two holes to deal with in the pelt. The 30-06 should be good out to at least 300 yards or more if you are sighted in.

    There is no round too big or small for a coyote from an agricultural perspective.

    With that said, the 30-06 with some 55 grain loads should do right nice on 'yote. Personally if all I have is a 180 grain load and Wiley pops up in front of me, that's what I use.

    I have used the Remington 125 grain SP with good results......but I had no interest in pelts, just dead coyotes.

    Two seasons ago I was deer hunting and saw a coyote. I shot him at about 25 yards with a 150 grain Remington Core-lokt out of my .30-06. He was moving and I hit him just behind the rib cage. It not only gutted him but nearly cut him in two.

    No round is to big for coyote, And if you happen to see one when your carring a small caliber, nothing is to small. As you might have aready figured out, I don`t like coyotes, but they are fun to hunt.

    I shot one earlier at 350 yards w my new baby-7.82 warbird. Hit him between the eyes and bullet came out the other end. Needles to say a 150 grain nosler partition III made ALMOST two of him;)

    If your lookin to keep the fur, I'd look at what bullet your using. Something that fragments easily, like a hornady v max or most "varmit" bullets, will tear things apart more. Something that doesn't break apart is what you'll want. Full metal jackets or, correct me if I'm wrong, I think Barnes makes something with the "pelt hunter" in mind.

    A coyote isn't worthy of a 30-06.

    Maybe not, but if that is what I am holding when I see one, that is what he is going to get shot with.

    If your after the pelts I can testify for 22-250. I shoot Winchester 45gr jhp. I've called them in and had them wind me. Had them take off loping lazily at 240yrds shot him in neck. All I saw was him flipping about 2 1/2 times like a wet rag. The hollow points mushroom pretty good and won't go plum through so saves pelt at that distance.

    In saying that if you can get them in close shot gun them. Most ppl carry a riffle and a shotgun down here. At 4000 fps a 22-250 will blow right through them up close.

    The 22-250 , the 223, the 204 are my top choices for yotes, but most any small caliber 22an larger works my all time favorite yote gun is my old model 70 winchester in .222

    Foxpro

    If you want coyotes and have a little extra cash, buy yourself a Foxpro. They run around $500 with all the bells and whistles. Set that baby out about 200 yards and turn it on with the remote and wait. Volume low to start. That is very important. Increase slowly after about 2 min if no action. Nothing like it. Coyote doesn't even know you are around at that distance. I have tooth scars on mine. Some want to eat the damn thing.
    My favorites are my Remington 222 and Savage 243
