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.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
