22 WMR for yotes and fox

2 posts in this topic

Just kind of curious who else out there uses a 22 WMR for fox or yotes? I have shot both critters with my 22 WMR using CCI Maxi-Mags 40 gr hollow pt, but have kept my shots under 100 yrds. My rifle is dead on at a 100 and I have had good success with it. I know alot of guys think this gun is too small of caliber.

coyotes have been shot with everything under the sun. I have never used a 22wmr, but I have read elsewhere that it is not a great round to use. Not saying you can't, but a lot of people will tell you it does not put them down.

I have a new 17hmr (w/ hornady 20 gr. xtp) that I will be using when I am around fox (I know of a couple farms that have fox and only a few yotes.) I am excited to use that gun since I can shoot extremely small groups with it at 50 yards, which will be my range limit with it as well.

I would say keep it under 100 yards ( closer to 50 ) and you should be okay. Notice I said okay, not that you will be bang flopping them all day long.

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
