I feel comfortable taking coyotes at 200 with WSM, if the wind is still.

It doesn't stop them as hard as my old 69 grain SMKs, but those blew a 7 inch hole out the otherside of the yote, so I only use them when the hides aren't worth sand and I'm just killing.

Interesting concept. The supposed evolutionary reason is to keep all of the load inside the female to ensure it stays in and pregnancy.

Is dog sperm less resiliant or effective than human sperm? Human women can even get pregnate even by simply having vagina contact with the head of a penis not even penetrating via some tenacious sperm cells in precum or shallow loads or surface loads.

Go ahead and kill them if they are a direct threat. But otherwise leave them alone. Keep small pets and children under supervision. My neighbor's dogs are more likely to kill them than coyotes or bears.

You guys can shoot paper if you want to shoot something. There's no reason to kill a "varmint" unless it is legitimately harming your livestock or something. If you kill a rabbit or squirrel or something you best be eating it, otherwise you're just a shit head wanting to kill for fun.

It's not about keeping the jizz in, it's about keeping other jizz out.

Humans have the opposite evolutionary response, our cocks have a head specifically to aid in pumping out the jizz of competitors.

Yes it's a wildcat.

Components are cheap. Sending 32gr bullets at 3900fps or 24gr bullets at 4300fps from an 18" AR is awesome.

The fact that I can have a 100y zero and still hit prairie dogs at 300y without any holdover is awesome.

Barrel life is decidedly not awesome. Neither is wind drift.

But still.

On good days, a suppressed .22lr. On bad days, a .17hmr with the 20gr XTP's (the Vmax and NTX bullets explode them a bit much to be edible).

Start on the town with a .223. Then as they get spooky I move back and swap to a .22-250. Then as they get spooky again I'll move back to ~600m and use a .243.
>'yotes
Depends. If I'm trapping them mid-late winter, a framing hammer to the temple. If I'm calling them close a suppressed .300blk with 110gr supers (Varmageddons). If I can't get them in close I'll shoot my .243 with light Vmax loads. None of them tend to exit, so I've got 1 small hole in the pelt.

Isn't the knot an anti-blueball measure though? It fits in the inside of the bitches vagina, but it's too big to fit through the opening, meaning she can't run off when the dog is only half way through* - she has to wait until he's nutted and his shaft has depressurised before she can disconnect.

Is there a compendium of where to sell animal parts you don't want? Maybe state-by-state?

I cannot, just cannot, eat all the boars I need removed. Nor can I rely on the random idiots that hunt here to put a worthwhile dent in them because they're idiots. Then we got alligators that sometimes overstep their boundaries and they gotta go too. There's also plenty of nuisance rodents, and even invasive giant fuckin snakes. I'm just one man, I can't eat all this. And shelters only accept the occasional (PREPARED) boar meat, or deer.

I hate seeing meat and other useful parts go to waste, I feel it is really immoral, even evil. So if I could figure out what to do with the carcasses, I'd be very relieved.

Worst advice I've seen on anything all year.

"Wildcats" are more likely to be threatened or endangered in a given area in north america, and most of the world. Even bobcats are much more rare than coyotes. I am mostly worried about the Florida Panther though, poor guys only got 100-200 left.

Coyotes are doing amazing, too good in some cases. I would agree that wolves need to be protected in alot of places, but not coyotes.

libshit here, but not anti-gun or anti-hunting. coyotes in the LA area just wreak absolute havoc on the pet population, especially cats little snack-sized purse dogs. best of all, all the wealthiest neighborhoods are in the hills, adjacent to the protected state lands from which the coyotes come from, so it's all the plastic rich ladies' dogs and cats who get eaten the most, which I find absolutely hilarious.

It's illegal to shoot or trap them so they're just something we live with, and it's kind of cool to live in a big city and regularly see deer and coyotes walking around.

>aka assholes who keep loud chickens in their back yards so they can brag about fresh eggs
I kinda did this awhile back. Lived in the burbs though, and only had 4-6 chickens. Wasn't loud, but didn't keep a rooster either. I fucking hate roosters.

Now my chickens are roaming almost free range on a farm, they just coop at night.

Even 3 chickens I found to produce more eggs than I a small family could eat.

So how many do Your typical urban farmers have?
>>
>>28536875

After a lot of profiling various loads I was able to get two different loads to hit the exact same at 300 yards and in. One is a hunting bullet and another is a varmint bullet. Just is handy to have options.
>>
>>28560327

Seems like 3-6 is the norm. Mexicans will keep roosters, the white/asian hipsters usually don't because their neighbors will make their lives hell in return by filing all sorts of complaints via legal means. Outside the barrio roosters disappear fast.

Seems like every neighborhood also has one house with a bunch of noisy exotic birds, too.

I toyed with the idea of getting a little bantam rooster like pic related. The little guy is full grown versus the hens there are normal sexlinks I think.

22 short, so I can have the animal suffer as much as it can..... nah, jk. Usually hunt with a 223 for coyotes, 22lr for rabbits. Try my best to make it quick.

No one else uses 5.56 for coyotes? I buy my ammo in bulk, and 5.56 has been cheaper than 2.23 bulk.

Is there something wrong with it?

>>28561935
Are you buying hollow points or ballistic tips in bulk?

Because FMJ for varmints is dumb and unethical.

Ballistic tip 5.56.

But I wouldn't feel bad about shooting a coyote with a fmj .30-06.

>>28536875
6mm Remington
Because I grew up shooting it with my dad and lots of feels there.
Also, it's a damn good cartridge. Shoots flat and fast.
