    22 lr

    Is the 22 enough for jersey coyote and if so what would be it's max range. Tried coyote hunting for the first time yesterday at the DWG with my brother and tried open fields with a caller and motion decoy with no success. We're both hunting with HEAVY 223s with big magnification scopes. Would like to try hunting in the woods, heavy cover and the only other rifles we have is 22lr. Dont want to go out undergunned and wound an animal. Is this enough? TY

    22LR will kill coyote as long as shot is in kill zone.

    It's a bullet that travels like 1,600-1,900 fps.. it will kill anything. You can't survive with a hole in the heart or a chunk of lead stuck in your brain.

    I raise and butcher pigs, my go-to gun is a .22 when it's time to put a hog down. If you ever saw how thick a pigs skull is you'd have no doubt in this world that a .22 could kill a coyote. A .22 is more powerful then some actually give credit to.

    Keep your shots at like 50-60 yards and shoot them in the head.

    In a near perfect shot- yes. Things seldom go perfect. I'd go heavier for a coyote

    yes it absolutely is. the max range depends on your shooting accuracy more than anything - it's a lethal round at 50 yrds, 75 yrds and 100 yrds easy if you can hit the coyote in the heart/lungs or in the head. i'd use a 40 grain high velocity hollow point round and aim for the heart/lungs if it was me.
