Is a 22 too small for coyote hunting? I know I am a bigger is better type guy, but just wanted to know what you guys think.
amen!unless you're offing a coyote you've found on your trap line, up close and personal like, it is a poor choice for a coyote gun.
You got it right. Corbina is the English name too. They're part of the croaker family. My dad has a weak stomach too, and used that to his advantage. We were on a boat off the Farallones and they had contests far who caught the first, most, and biggest fish. My old man won all three prizes, even though he spent most of the trip throwing up over the side.dunn_gary said:Hey Fatbass, in answer to your chumming question, I took my two boys fishing in the gulf of Calif. several years ago, off the coast of San Felipe. My youngest son got sick. He would fish for a while, throw up over the side, rest for a while, and go back to fishing. He caught most of the fish! We were fishing for corbina. I did hook a biggy, that broke my twenty pound test line, even with the drag set. Still, we brought home a cooler full of fine tasting fish. I am not sure what corbina (corvina?) is in English. Very similar in size and shape to red fish.
One of the centerfire .22s. If I were buying just factory ammo, then the .223. Even with the shortage right now, it is still cheaper and usually has more offerings than other cartridges. If reloading is added to the equation, then I would pick the .22-250 because the costs for loading either one would be pretty close to the same and the .22-250 has that extra umph to it.Huckleberry said:Lets stir the pot even more then... If a guy were to have only one gun for coyotes/varmits, what caliber would you choose, and why?
