    Imo the .17s lightweight bullet weights unless exceptionally well placed is just not enough to reliably bring coyotes down. I'm not saying they shouldn't be used. they are great on Fox. I'm saying I think eastern coyotes outweigh there western counterparts and therefore require just a hair heavier bullet than 25 grains.

    All that being said.... exactly 15 coyote kills were reported by nj Predator hunters last year . .
    Nj tool of choice, numbers?
    2 down already in 2016, "Faster," bows only!

    I can't wait to see what a 50g .222 does to a Fox. I have some 40g Hornady HP's I can load up. Might make a little smaller hole. Still need to put a notch in my Ruger .22 mag. Gonna be a busy winter. Can't wait.
    When all else fails..... call in an Airstrike
