Ruger predator in .308 with Hornady superperformance 150grn sst and a Burris Timberline 3-9X36.
While that set up will certainly kill coyote, I think he wanted to save the hides.

I didn't pay attention to that part  :chuckle: this ammo definitely will not save hides :yike: . The last coyote i shot was 138 yards and my dad who was watching through his binos said he flipped.The blood spray on the grass was crazy.I just leave'em where they lay.

Thanks blanktail sniper,  yes I knew that.   
Ended up going with savage axis .243 Winchester it was more in my price range too and my daughter will be able to use if decides to hunt deer.  Now gotta find a fox pro that doesn't cost arm and leg  :tup:
Spend another 100 bucks and put a Romney trigger in it. You'll thank me

If you were not already aware, Savage is offering a $100.00 rebate on all Axis models purchased before Dec 31.  Have until Jan 31 to submit form, then expect a long wait, but if you do everthing correct, you will get a $100.00 pre-paid VISA.

I got two of the 12FV rifles, one rebate is already back and spent, the second is approved and awaiting mailing.  It is by no means a fast process, but worth the wait.

Also, do it on-line instead of snail mail.  A large amount of mailed in rebates seem to be having issues.  Scan or take pictures of the required info and should be good to go.  If something is wrong, can call the number and they seem very willing to help correct any mistakes.

 After talking to anther member on  here,  he made a good point that allot of the coyotes in this area western wa aren't really in good shape as far as fur goes , most of the dogs I've seen are mangy looking and look like hell, so if I end up ruining the fur its not the end of the world.  I was just thinking it would be cool to save a hide or 2 and tan them just to say that i did.  I'm not really a big fur and hide guy but having a couple hanging in my man room would be cool. Now I gotta figure out what a good load is for .243 hunting coyote, I don't load my own rounds but could probably find someone too if needed.  I'd like a round that'll put them down but also not cut em half.

The area I’ll be hunting this winter is pretty small so I’m going with the versamax with a turkey choke. I’m not concerned with the hides and most likely will just leave them lay.

But, if the time is taken :4w:  to read all the prior posts, he does go on to say that he would like like to save fur:

Yes I'd like to save the fur and will be hunting predators mainly coyote, hopefully bobcats and if really lucky a cougar.

What? No votes for the 22LR?
I've nailed a lot of yotes in my life and all of them have been with the 22LR with one exception. One yote at about 1200 yards with a 25-06. Everyone there was surprised I got the arch correct on that shot.
Other than that - I would use any caliber in hand  :tup:

I too have killed a pile of coyotes with a 22 LR but they were all at about 4'.  Great trapline gun but I'll take a little more Umph for hunting them.  I've also killed a few at some really long distances but only becuse they ran that far after a poorly placed shot a lot closer.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska

I like using my 30 06 with ball ammo at shorter ranges the military ball shoots fairly close to my hunting round and the gun is set up the way I like it.

Shot a yote with a 16 gauge in Kapowsin area during early archery. Had a really nice hide on it! We were so surprised to see if run across the road that we didn't grab the rifles or pistols I just grabbed the grouse killer and let it have it.. it dropped then took off running. Never did find it sadly but it was a very thick coated yote! I think you made a good choice in the .243 since your daughter might want to hunt. It can be an extremely accurate round for close or longer ranges. I personally like my savage model 11 in 22-250 with 55 gr noslers. The rifle is currently set up as a 6mm br though but I would love to poke a 68 gr berger into a yote with it! Good luck!

anyone using a .243 for long range coyotes was curious what loads?  and anyone have a howa kuiu rifle on sale now for 419 seems cheap.  Not sure how good for long range though?
