    .223, 22-250, .243, 6mm, they'll ALL get the job done. My personal preference is a .243 for 'yotes

    BUT...FOM mentioned neighbors and all of those are real loud, loud enuf to be an annoyance to some neighbors. Iffen that's the case, you can't beat the lowly .22 Hornet with a 40-45 gr. Hornady SX bullet you can knock 'em down out to a bit over 200 yds with no range compensation. The quiet-er alternative.

    Browning semi-auto .243 and....

    http://www.hornady.com/store/243-Win...Superformance/

    Kicks like a .22 for great follow up shots and is wicked fast and flat.

    Also an excellent deer gun. Lightweight (7.5 lbs) and more than enough punch for a well placed shot on a muley shooting 80-115 grain bullets. Drop down to the 50-58 grains for critters.

    Big difference between living in a place where you are always within walking distance to the next house (or tavern) and living in a place where yours is the only yard light visible. Similarly large difference between buying your groceries at the local mart and living in a place where the critters out in the yard are groceries on the hoof. I'm with you on the coyote thing- in most instances they eat enough pests to earn their keep but they can also break the bank if they decide to start eating the livestock. Might also be helpful to remember that they are particularly fond of Canis Familiaris. I let them be if they are willing to stick to possum and nutria but................

    Besides- not all "Varmits" are carnivores - Prairie Dog, rock chuck, wood chuck, Marmot, and in some counties Democrats are in that category.

    Always nice to have a tack driver around to dispatch the odd unwanted intruder.

    Here in Tx some counties will pay bounties on them and ranch owners would hang them on the fence to collect their bountey or warn neigbors. Some have to take a ear or something in to collect bountie.
    Some counties put out poison and post signs for a warning for dogs, all to protect the livestock and lap dogs
    We even still use purple paint on trees for no tresspasing

    In Texas, the ranch owner near Judy leaves them up until they rot enough to fall off the fence on their own. Yuck!

    its part Texas tradition to hang a yote carcass on the fence.....and in some good ole boys wives tales hunting lore circles they believe that the smell/sight will ward off other coyotes...have hunted with people from both persuasions

    My vote is the flattop AR-15 too. Mine is in 5.56 because its slightly hotter, but the .223 is great too. Not much walks within 500yds of me and enjoys it... Toss on a Nikon M-223 with the BDC reticle and its perfect. Plus WHEN(not if) the Commies come, you'll be ready.
