Head shot only, try for right behind or in the eye or ear. I shot one clean through the boiler room once with a .32 win spl. and the buzzards found him before I did.

i was squirrel hunting years ago and a coyote crossed a beaver dam and walked up within 20 yards of me. i shot him umpteen times and never saw him again. Could hear the thuds of impact and it broke camp like like an addict who just scored enough loose change to get a fix. He ran all the way to the another county...literally. I was on the county line.:up:

I was squirrel hunting down a ridge several years ago and had 6, dragging them on a rattan vine behind me.........I sat down on the side of the ridge overlooking a pin oak flat. After several minutes I heard a rustle in the leaves back up the ridge from the way I came. I looked back up the ridge and saw a big dog coyote trailing those squirrels I was dragging. I put one .22lr round in his head, and his tanned hide stayed beside my bed for many years. If you don't think you can do it....you probly can't. :thumb:

I don't shoot them for their hides, so no gun is too big. I just want them dead so they will not eat my rabbits, turkeys, and other critters. However, I believe as hunters we owe our quarry a quick, clean kill. Sure you can kill them with a .22lr, but lots will run off to a suffering death.

Just saying that the next one I see will be when the only gun I have in hand is a .22lr. :whistle:
