I resolved the 9mm question for myself a couple years ago on big but sick raccoon in my barn , mind you I killed hundreds of coons in my youth with a .22 from the tree tops not point blank range , unless its in self defense I will go get the 10/22 next time :)

as far as yotes go there no such thing as to much gun , last one I shot was with 50 cal muzzle loader for bang flop , 260 rem with 120 grain ballistic tips are very effective too. I own a 204 and a 223 but have not shot yotes with them yet , I don't expect anything dramatic
from them as far as exits on coyote sized animals really unless I find that bullet that works. Tracking wounded coyotes is not something I want to do and is nearly impossible at night .

That's not good - I don't want them to suffer, just die.

My brother hunted upland game with his rather small English setters or French Brittany (both of which he loved more than anything else), and whether he hunted in Illinois or Wisconsin, all the while he hunted upland game, coyotes were hunting his bird dogs: So, if you don't want to go through the trouble of masking human scent or setting up a blind, sitting for hours, or using camo, try hunting upland game using a smaller bird dog. I would be amazed if you did not find the coyotes hunting your bird dog and giving you the opportunity to shoot and kill dead with one shot coyotes when using no more than a 20 gauge side by side loaded with 1 ounce of # 6 or even # 7.5 bird shot. This happened time and time again year after year. It was as if the coyotes were completely unaware that my brother was even in the vicinity. As for myself, I always hunted using my 100 pound plus Chessies; I never had this problem with coyotes.

I have a friend who is an avid coyote hunter. He tells me scent control and camo are critical. As for bringing them in closer than 100 yards he says it's doable with the young ones. After their first year they wise up. He's constantly changing up his calls. At least that's his experience with coyotes in East TN. Of course, with coyotes the challenge is the whole point of the exercise. I'm dying to go as well, but haven't had the time to dedicate.

What brand does he use?

Well said, ArmoredMan!  A quick kill is a humane kill.

Here in Wa state, we called for a few years and most were within 25 yards. Out in the open country you would really need a Rifle, unless you can hit targets at 200 yards with a handgun. Good luck.

I've been given enough from all sides to make me reconsider my czoice of coyote killers...maybe the CZ 527M/CSR would be a better idea. :) A 125 grain soft point stepping out at 2300 FPS might do a better job.
What 5.56mm ammo were you using, if you don't mind me asking?
Franz, we don't eat "dog", (coyotes aren't dogs), but we do hunt varmints and pests. Coyotes do huge damage to livestock around here, and I have friends with goat farms and cattle ranches out here. Coyotes have been known to attack and eat a calf while it's still being born.

...I'm not a hunter but think that's a wise choice armoredman. If you can use something that flies in that 2K+FPS range you'll be able to create a much more traumatic wound/ quicker kill. A rifle will allow much better shot placement too. I know these animals have to be controlled, sounds like you're wanting to be surgical about it. I think both 7.62x39 or 5.56 are ideal choices unless your shots are within 25 yards or so.

May the force be with you & me.
