What's your weapon(s) choices for coyotes?
« on: January 29, 2012, 03:53:23 PM »
I've had my best seccess with carrying a shotgun as my front weapon and having a rifle sitting next to me, on a bipod, if anything thinks it's out of range. O0 I used a MOJO Critter to keep their attention off of my location.

My Mossberg 500 Turkey Special is a 3" 12 guage, has a 20" barrel, a Carlson's .680" extended non-ported choke tube. It shoots a 90% pattern inside a 10" circle with either Dead Coyote or Remington HD BBs at 50 yards.

My Stevens 200 in .25-06 will shoot a 5/8" group at 100 yards with a Nosler 87gr. BT @ 3300 f.p.s. and is topped with a Nikon 3x9x40 ProStaff. It has a tall bipod for shooting from a sitting position.

What's your weapon choice(s) for coyote hunting?
Thank you, Bowhunter57
There is no hunting like the hunting of man and those that have hunted them long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

 O0 O0 O0 O0 Good equipment for 'yotes, Bow!

I use a .243, my brother's Rem Mohawk because I no longer own a centerfire rifle.
