I have successfully used a 25-06 with 85 gr. bullet on Yotes.
It was severely damaging to the pelt. If you are after the pelt, go with something slower maybe and head shot if possible.
Most important, be safe and have fun. Know your shot and whats beyond the target. We tend to relax during a predator hunt and forget the basic safety principles.
Teach a kid to respect wildlife, then teach a kid to hunt and fish.
