Will a 22mag be enough gun out to 100 to 150 yards or how far?
Have 1 or 2 that are occasionally crossing the field behind my house.
I was going to use a 223-bolt gun but 1 of my little dogs has ptsd & I
have to go find her when its shot close to the house. (Yes, she's in the house)
Then I thought it was just another excuse to buy another gun.

id say to 100 yards with proper shot placement for a clean kill, beyond that it would be a crippled coyote

thanks, i guess it will be the 223 or 6mm
she needs a pair ear muffs
A lot of my friends out in Texas and in Arizona use 5.56/.223 for Coyote and it works great, honestly Coyotes aren't real big so you don't need anything larger than that. If you were hunting Elk or Bear I'd say bring a 30 caliber rifle minimum, but for Coyotes nah 5.56 or .223 is fine.
