I was invited to do a piggie hunt in TX with a buddy that moved there last year. Here is the issue, I hunt in CO where we hunt things like elk and mule deer. The closest thing I can think of in weight and size I have here would be coyote and at that its not even in the ball park. I am not sure what to use. I use a .444 marlin or 30-30 for deer in the brush. I use a 30-06 or 308 for elk. I use a .223 for coyote. I have a 7.69x39 would that work it seems to be the medium of what I own. What would be a good caliber??? .243? 25-06?. Keep in mind that I want to eat as much of these beauties as possible so I dont want a massive wound channel like what I believe the 30 cal stuff would cause. Any input would be GREAT. Thanks in advance guys!!! BTW thats why I love this forum so much knowledge in such a small place!!!
