With dogs is a game changer. The dogs keep you safe.

I know I should voice my opinion on rifle/caliber topic as asked too.. But,~~I think its more important to advise: Buy a better than average pre-recorded Varmint Caller first thing.
Just about any long distance cartridge will get the job done. 223 22-250 270 all are purposeful fast flat shooters.

As for me at this time & date. My rifle of choice Rem model 7 223 having a old bushnell Tophy scope (japan made.) I have no allusions about killing more than one yote at a time as I seldom see two yotes hunting together or coming into shooting distance. If I were starting out? Remington sendero model 700 cal_1/4 bore ~ FOXPRO FoxJack 3 Predator motion decoy will forever garner a successful hunt. If there are yotes around?
