Post subject:  coyote hunting

i have been thinking about trying to do some coyote hunting. i never have before (got one with a bow once during deer season) and next season i will be trapping them for the first time. we have lots of them and i know where a few packs den. would a 257 Roberts be to much for them?

I don't think it would be just do not use too light of bullet so it won't blow up to bad. I have shot them with every thing from 22lr to 45-70 and I found if you use tuff bullits in the bigger calibers they don't do to bad. Not as nice as a 223 or 17 hmr or any of the other varmit rigs but some times more gun is good if I would of had my 25-06 I know I would have 1 wolf already but I only had my 204 ruger and with bad winds and long shots the little bullet went 6 feet behind him and he walked away. Just try it and find out for your self and let us know haw it goes, don't forget pix you know haw the boys get.lol Good luck.

257 is a great gun....just get the smaller 25 cal bullets and see what she will do...

ps if you are going to call, you also might take along a 12 gauge......sometimes it gets fast and furiouse...

i was planning on bringing a 12 gauge too. i have two of them. one is a semi auto and the other is my pump turkey gun. i think i will use the semi because i use 3 1/2 inch shells in the other :lol: although i would still take a shot with it while turkey hunting if i got the chance. it wouldnt be the first time we accidentially called in a yote with a turky call. one time my dad even called in a bobcat while turkey hunting. anyway i think i will try to get out sometime next week and give it a go. thanks.

Here in the east 'yote hunting is a TOTALLY different ball game than out west. Here the 'yotes are less likely to come trotting through a field. They'll stick to the cover. Your best bet is to set up in the treelines and along creekbeds. They'll come in fast and disappear just as quickly. I've used a 12 gauge and also a .30-.30 on them. Good luck!

I like reed calls. Never had enough cash to buy an electronic. Besides, there's something about calling them in yourself that makes it that much better. :D
