Dont the wolves drive off yotes? The region does have some wolfs I belive.
I live and hunt in Wolf country Idaho. While its true they do eat Coyotes the presence of wolves does not mean there are no Coyotes, they just learn to be more quiet and sneaky. I hear Wolves many nights every year, especially in the warm summer evenings. The coyotes that are still around have learned not to yap (very much)
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 25 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
