Thought I’d give a try at calling in some yotes. What type of gun (cal) etc do you yote hunters recommend? heard a 223 is good.

That’s what my uncle always used when I went with him.  My buddy uses a 270!  They don’t even know what hits them!!  Just gotta keep in mind what’s beyond your target no matter what caliber you use.

I use my turkey gun (Mossburg 12 guage) with Hevi Dead Coyote load.  Coyotes are an absolute blast to hunt.  If you are in a good area, the action can be really intense.  Good luck!

You cannot kill them too dead.  outside of a .22 rimfire, i’d say the options are wide open.

I have a 22/250 bolt action specifically for yotes.  Though just about anything will work, the 22/250 is one heck of a coyote round.  That said, this year I will be using my new Colt AR-15 (.223/5.56 NATO) just for the fun of it.  Incredibly accurate rifle…even in my hands.
