Guys,
2 questions in regard to fox hunting:

1. Where are you placing your shots: head, chest, side, etc?
2. If using a 22 mag, what loads have you been successful with?

Thanks,

John

Never fox hunted, but have slayed many coyotes. Just about every coyote ive shot would come running to my call, which provided me with a head on shot. I have the option of a chest or head shot mostly. Ive killed nearly all my coyotes with a .22LR and have placed just about every shot ive taken in the chest area, preferably center mass. Ive recently bought a .17HMR and have great luck with chest shots as well. If i get the luck of a broad side shot, Ill take the neck or head.
