    Titus just sent me a PM.  He wants to come live with me.   I said OK.   Ticket is on the way.

    Titus was outside when 3 jumped him and one bit part of his ear off and almost bit my wife , so tomarrow I will remove my pulsar n550 and put on the R-5 30  mag with the 52 grains  I make they do 920 fps and I am guessing they will be where the quail were being raised , they got them too,

    BOB I can use the EDgun  with is about 97fpe , or I have condor tricked out in   .257 which shoot a 73 grain at 990 fps is 173fps , both guns sub MOA during day , both single shot the coyotes are packs  of 5 or more ,

    I do have centerfires but cant shoot anything loud , so i am thinking one of these , with slugs they lose little power  at range I will shoot , so Which gun should I put scope on ? . I would say I can get off shots faster with the EDGUN then the condor as the bolt is on top on the condor  here i both guns they are my most powerful which would you guys use .257 or .30 , and slugs or pellet , I am saying Heavy slug  

    Here is condor with my slugs 158fpe

               

     

     

    here i R5 30 cal with 52 gr slug

    Aloha jwrabbit,

    Glad Titus is okay. 

    If I could ask a few questions… Approximately how far do you think you’ll take the shot?  Which gun do you feel the most comfortable with? Which gun do you shoot more accurately? I’m guessing that you’ll only get one shot before they scatter ( just guessing as I have never hunted coyotes) but understand they are very weary animals. I base that assumption on hunting pigs here in Hawaii. Kinda apples to oranges but when hunting weary game, at the shot even suppressed they make themselves scarce. I’ve never been able to get a second shot. Pellets vs slugs… I’d shoot the one that I could shoot accurately at the range you plan to take them. Lastly you probably are already planning to do it but  maybe flag the distance in ten yard increments from your hide. You’ll get a better read on them once they step in the kill zone  

    Aloha

    BTW, Nice GunsI I think the guns are more than up to the task. Sorry if I came across as someone talking to a newb which I know you’re not. Good Hunting my friend!

    Both guns will do the trick I'm sure!

    I'd use the Condor if you think you'll just get one shot OR if you think you can reload quick enough for a shot on a second one.  

    Do you have an e-caller where you can play a pup-distress call after you shoot the first one?  That might help get the other ones to come back or at least stop running so you can get a shot on them.

    They WILL react to a pup-distress call.   The last time out I had a second coyote come running right toward the caller that I had placed about 50 yards from where I was shooting.

    Depending on the Range you have to take the shot I would think the Condor is probably best to use. You can go for double lung shot which is much easier than the headshot and with that much power guaranteed to put them down. As others said you probably unlikely to get a second shot anyway.

    JWRabbit,

    Titus is just about as sweet a looking a dog as they come. Gordan setter? She must live, they must die.

    Bob O is correct about the caller. They will turn around in their tracks for a wounded pup call. Also they will not leave a wounded coyote behind. If you shoot one of them in the hind quarter and drop him squealing the other will not leave. Shoot the second one dead then go back and finish the other. This way you can get at least two. 

    Coyotes are my biggest fear. My dog is my best friend period. Rid the world of coyotes!

    We go out 2-3 times a week looking for them. Also if you go to your local meat market and ask for some beef fat trimmings and leave that out for bait they just love it. It is a smell they love and high in protein so they want it bad! Squirrel meat works great too, but easier to go to the grocery store unless you just want to have fun squirreling?

    Good luck! Please let us know how you did.

    um I do not have a caller , But My neighbors breed Quails andthey make these chirp noises I think this is why a pack of coyotes are here , OK o I think shots can be 50 yards , I mean they attacked titus like 50 feet from back door they show no fear , Here i titus if u look he is packing a 25ACP , Titus is a breed of dog raised to tunnel to hunt Badgers , He has many battle scars but them coyotes came in a pack and ambushed him while he was peeing , I have to redeem as blood was shed and titus needs to walk with his head Hi and  OK how about if I put the nite cope on R-5 and  a 1x on the condor and a torch on that and I can try to use both  ok here i Tisus after the aftermath  Colleen is tending his wounds

    and he is on a hi protein diet of 2 gray squirrel  a day to heal quickly

    50 yards either will do fine. Heck set up both, take the first shot with the edgun then once the stop and turn use the condor. Plus the edgun is probably quieter so they won’t run as far.  You might need to phone a friend for 2 shooters.

    I'd put out some traps and catch and kill as many as possible by whatever means, to get them under control, then hunt them hard.  Poor Titus, and almost bit your wife?-this means war!

    It seems you are probably prepared for the task. Good luck on your hunt.
