I have goats and I have coyotes. The coyotes love the goats and will make one disappear in a minute or so it seems. Since I live in brushy Texas I need something quick and agile. I was going to spring for an AR type when my neighbor suggested that I get good stock and red dot sight for my old SKS. It's not a special gun and already has removable mags. I figure that for under a hundred I can get it set up for quick handling and depending on what it costs me for a good, red dot, I'll have a better coyote gun than a .223 black rifle. What do you think? Thanks.
