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.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
