I’ve killed’em with a .17, think there are better rounds especially at longer range

I’ve killed hogs with FMJ’s out of a .17.

There are better rounds for both.

I’ve heard that at 15 feet from the deck above it it’s good for elk getting into the hay barn.

Most guys say that they limit their shots to around 150 yards. I was interested in it years ago for about 5 minutes before I decided that the 22WMR will do everything and more plus it’s far more common and cheaper. A slight breeze from the flapping of a blackbird’s wings will require massive windage inputs….😂

I've killed coyotes out to 250 yards with .17 HMR. It is quite possibly my favorite round to kill varmints.

I'd not hunt coyotes with anything smaller than a .22 Hornet. Even then, it would have to be a chance shot when I was after something else like fox or prairie dogs.

only time I'd use the hmr is if the coyote was in a trap. Otherwise, I'd not expect to recover most of em.

17 hmr works great out to 200 Yards on yotes.
They usually run a ways even with a good shot placement but they die. I keep a 17hmr in my truck for some of our fields that have houses in many directions. I use a fragmentable bullet. 17 super mag works better and 22 hornet may be perfect but bullets are expensive. I probably average a yote a week. All opportunistic shooting while out on the farm.

We must have soft California yotes.

I know guys in PENN that call at night, and most of them stick to 223 on coyotes and 22 magnum for foxes.

17 HMR is NOT a coyote gun.

Can you kill them with one? Sure.

Should you? Probably not based on years of lack of performance on them.

Only if you want to spend the night with your Hunting buddy and look for your coyote in the morning
