coyote rifle

Hey everyone!
Just curious if anyone hunted coyotes? I love to hunt them in the winter time when I get tired of goose and duck hunting after deer is closed.
I use a rem. 700 220 swift with 55 gr. sierra bthp bullets at 3700fps, I could load faster but WHY? my rifle shoots more accurate at this speed anyways.

What do you shoot?

I just shoot whatever rifle is on me that day.

How do you like to hunt coyotes? Calling, baiting?

I like calling them, but I always have better luck just driving through the hills, lol

I use a 220 swift as well. It is perfect for long range varmints. It is a super accurate calibre. I call over bait for coyote. It seems to work well up here.

I love hunting coyotes. Living on a farm we sometimes get still-born calves and those work great. Drag it around the farm with the 4-wheeler and plop it 100yds from the deck. Sure enough, they come. I use a .25-06 Rem. Model 700 BDL SS. A lot of fun with a couple of buddies and a case of beer.

I have hunted coyote, but I consider them a target of opportunity. I let one pass a couple weeks ago only because it was under my tree stand. I would like to start hunting them though because we have way to many of them around here.
