    so a couple nights ago about a half a mile away a puppy was killed by some coyotes. even though the owners came out they yotes didn't stop so they are either very hungry or slightly rabid. Unfortunately we don't have anything in .223(yet) to dispatch these vermin in the event that they decide that our 70 something lbs yellow lab looks like dinner. So which round would be best to kill a yote or two: .30 carbine, 9mm, .45ACP, or 00 buck(I'm thinking a little too much overkill). 30-06 out of the garand or .308 from the Savage is a bit much and the neighbors might take offense. birdshot isn't an option either because I'm not interested in wounding the fuckers.

    You gonna be shooting that 9mm or 45acp out of a carbine? If not, .30 carbine.

    if they're close buckshot without a doubt, if you aren't saving the hides who cares about overkill. Hevi Shot actually makes rounds called Dead Coyote that are loaded with 00B and T shot IIRC.

    My uncles actually run coyotes with various kinds of hounds and all carry shotguns when doing so. Theres also an article in this months Field&Stream about hunters using shotguns on called-in coyotes.

    00 Buckshot, with a pile of death already arranged, and some calls.

    Will fuck them up, hardcore style and be a lot of fun in the process.

    the problem lies that I could only shoot them in defense of the dog and as such the dog and yotes would need to be in somewhat close proximity so the spread of the shot is a concern. I'd also prefer not to put a round into one of the neighbors houses after it goes through a yote. I live on some sort of a hippy nature preserve where you have to ask to cut down a tree in your yard and they don't allow hunting. so although there is a fairly large deer population that roams free these bastard animals killed a puppy instead. there's also a good amount of wild turkeys around here too. all of them off limits...

    S&W 5906 and 1911 respectively. if 9mm and .45 are capable of killing a 100 something pound human why wouldn't it be adequate to kill a yote? if it comes down to it the range would be 30 yards tops.

    From a different thread yesterday....but I think it proves buckshot is sufficient.

    I was not concerned with the power of the round but with the accuracy. You know your marksmanship more than I, if you can take down a yote from 30 yards away with a handgun there's nothing stop you.

    Just set out some deer guts or something for bait and wait for them. Get rid of the scraps and when someone asks just say they were fucking with your dog. I'm guessing you don't live inside city limits, right?

    After you hunt coyotes, what do people do with them? Can you even eat them or are they doing it for pest control?

    If you suspect they are rabid be very careful around the body fluids and watch out for the fluids splattering if you are shooting them close range in the event they explode on impact :mamoru: .

    so I shouldn't drink their blood? well shit that takes all the fun out of it...

    if they are close enough for me to catch high velocity spatter I would probably have more to be concerned about than getting some rabies shots.
