Default what are you using to zap coyotes?

When I go to the field to call predators the firearms that I normally take are.

H&K 630 in cal. .223, bullets are handloaded barnes 53gr triple shocks. I just luv them ther bullets.

H&K super 90 12ga. 3" magnum shot gun. always with 3" shells of BB's, 4 Buck or any 3"buck shot, which ever suits the area I am calling, bear and lion country. heavy shot works in case they come running in.

then a walther TPH stoked with CCI stingers for the coup' de grace if need be.

these three firearms almost always go. But if I am headed to an area where the shot may be far. I have others. and when just putzin around with a new hand call or ecall. I may take some other rifle and cal. to play with.

Just started. My son and I have gone out once, no luck. We'll gettem next time. I use a Savage Edge 22 250 with Vmax 50 gr., my son carries a Moosberg 535 with a turkey choke and 3" Hevi-shot. We can't wait to call in our first yote.

The Savage is nice gun for the price. We went out a couple weeks ago to jack hunt and I got one in the head from around 150 yards standing, what a shot. It was all luck but thats my story.
