Those Coyotes sure do build up quick . I read stories about them taking peoples cats and dogs in suburban areas . Hook into them and thin them out .

My best coyote story ever was told to me by a bloke in Australia that had been studying them from afar for reasons unbeknown to me ....he said that a coyote will Sometimes pretend to be friendly with a domestic dog And lure it into the bush , then the coyotes mates hiding in the bush jump out and they all hook in and together they kill the domestic dog .....one day a bloke came home from work to find that his pit bull was unusually tired and had bites, scratches and tears on him but was otherwise ok ....he suspected that there had been some sort of altication goin on so he decided to go for a wander and check things out , he found a dead coyote, and then another, and then another, eventually he found nine dead coyotes , then he wandered home with a smile on his dial feeling pretty proud of his dog so he gave him a cuddle and some smackos

They will kill pet dogs and cats and as you said they will lure dogs out to kill and eat them but they do make mistakes and attack the wrong one's some of the farmers in the upper peninsula that have bull mastiff because of the wolfs and they said the coyotes don't stand a chance and will drag them home after they kill them

I see , that's not so bad . I see you tube videos of hunters using predator calls to bring in Coyotes . Looks like it works ok .
What cartridge and gun do you use ? From what I see 243 W seems to bowl them over ok .

Just looked. Coyotes are about same weight as a dingo. So, guess a 222 would do the job most of the time.

Coyotes and dingos are about the same size. A good high velocity varmint bullet will take them down.

However they are smart and elusive and know to stay away from humans. Only when they pack up with one another do they become more easy to hunt at night simply because you know where they are due to the yelping and howling and when in packs they will get more brazen and get closer to people or do things like take stock.

We had a mob of them about 7-8 years ago that got right up on the house and were disturbing the cattle on properties near my house, so the farmers set up at night and blasted a number of them and that seemed to end that party. Now I only get single coyotes hanging around, never seen in the day, the trail camera on occasion will pick them up in winter. Don't really see them in summer.

I had a mind concept that Coyotes were about the same size as wolves but obviously wrong . The thicker coat when wet could present some penetration problems for lighter bullets at high velocities as compared to say Dingoes .
In a cold snowy winter like you get over there I would tend to want to use a .243 or bigger to cover all the bases .
I watch some youtube of Coyotes in winter being body hit by 223's and I see quite a few keep running a long way before they drop .
I know it also depends on where they are hit but it just seems to me that the 243's and over are more reliable overall .
I know how much Americans love their AR's in 223 but is it the best cartridge ?

Well the market has stepped up and there are a variety of choices that fit the AR platform, 224 Valkyrie, 6.5 Grendel, 6 ARC, 6.8 SPC, 7.62x39, 300 Blackout, 22 Nosler and then you can go bigger bore with 50 Beowulf, 458 SOCOM, 450 Bushmaster, etc. Lots of choices now that fit a regular AR 15 receiver.

Sadly, anything like an AR is prohibited to recreational shooters in Australia - no semi-autos (including shotguns and rimfire) at all except for professional shooters and primary producers.
Listing your firearms is as good as a fingerprint.

Nice pics on the deer . I could go an AR10 in .243 with night vision if I was allowed to own it . My mother should have stayed in the US and I would have been born there instead and then the inside of my gun safe would be a whole lot different , lol.
