Young Gun

Recommended Posts

Me And Lights went out fox hunting last night and he called for about a minute maybe if that. Then one came in and Mark shot it. Now I'm hooked and want to get into fox and coyote hunting. What do I need for gear. I dont have a highpower rifle the closest thing i have is a .22 LR. It would work for foxes but not coyote. Is there a cheap .223 out there that would be worth getting? Thanks for any help.

Young Gun, there is a gun show this weekend at Graham Arena in Rochester. You might be able to find something there. I bought my son-in-law a Savage 22-250 at one of the shows for a reasonable price. It has a heavy barrel and a scope you can count the fleas with. I sure it's more then you would want to spend but sometimes you can find a deal.

Good Luck and if I hear of anyone selling a varmit rifle I'll let you know.

Sounds like you're a heck of a nice young man and excited about the outdoor life of fishing and hunting.

Hey Young Gun how a doing? As for buget guns I would get a NEF handi rifle in .223 rem. They are single shots and they sell for about 170.00 The cool thing about them is you can get a different barrel in just about any cal. for 78 Bucks.

I know a few guys that have them and love them.

Check This place out for predator stuff.

Later,

Lights

I like to set up with a shotgun and a varmint rifle most of the time...I have the shotgun across my lap for the ones that charge in hard and my .222 for the ones that hang-up a ways out. I set up my rifle with a bi-pod so it is right in front of me and ready to go! Get yourself a "good" set of calls...I prefer the E.J. Sceery calls... the three call set comes with a nice carry case and lanyards and is available in a variety of reeds to fit different areas of the country....the barrels are also interchangeable on some sets so you can get 3 different pitches from each reed just by changeing barrel length. You'll also want a set or two of camo to suit hunting conditions. Regular camo for fall, all white or snow camo for winter. A good waterproof drop cloth also comes in handy when setting up in the snow...I also like to use a cover scent of some sort...before freeze-up I like to set an open jar of skunk essence downwind. When there's snow on the ground I use fox urine for the most part. It's a blast...especially when you get one in your lap in the moonlight!

Be careful in picking a rifle. Form what I hear is that the fore-end grip on rifle like the New England Handi-Rifle puts torque on the barrel. Every time you take the fore-end off it may change your zero.

Does anybody have a NEF handi rifle. I like the looks of them and that you can get a new barrel in a different cal. for under 100 bucks.

Does anybody else have the same problem as muddog has heard?
