hi im in brooklyn n.s. and im thinking of buying a new rimfire to carry along on my trapline
im planning on trappin some coyotes and foxes
last year i was carryin me 12ga. pump stoeger p350 with me with no.5 buckshot . i was seeing a lot of coyotes way out there on my trappline so i took my fathers old winchester 95 autoloader and put a 3-9x bushnell on it. but the coyotes were just to far for the 22lr
i was wanting to upgrade to a 17hmr. or a 22wmr. but i dont know if the 17hmr has enough weight to kill an eastern coyote. the 17hmr. has almost the same power and better ballistics but the 22mag has alot more weight
so wich do u guys think is best for the big eastern
....I prefer the 22/250 or 223 for the big yotes got good distance too
My Grandma always used whole tomotoes in the can and huge cans of tamato sauce she said it always worked best for her.
A couple years back I was bird hunting and my dog ran away for a couple mins well sh*& he comes running back howling tail between his legs and as he got closer, I seen it the biggest patch of quills shoved really good into his face. I swear it musta been half the little porker stuck right in my dogs whole face, just covered. Getting those out is a chore specially when they have to come out one by one and we all know the methods of getting them out. ,)
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
