Another thing: Never get discouraged...the first one is likely going to be the hardest one to get, after that first one it'll get easier.

Coyotes are pretty stealthy animals with incredible senses eyesight, hearing and the ability to smell.

For me, I either missed or got busted by the first dozen or so until everything aligned and I connected for my first one.

Holy crap people!

- don't sight in at 50yds (be normal and sight in at 100)
- 223 is plenty to kill a coyote
- wind does not dramatically affect your bullet at normal coyote shooting distance.
- your short barrel is fine.... Loud but fine.
- don't over think it. Your adrenaline is going to cost you more coyotes than all other factors put together!

If you haven't killed at least a handful of coyotes out west why would you feel compelled to give advice?

From my experience I'd say a 200 yard zero is more versatile for a .223 Rem inside 300 for calling. IMHO

When you call in your first coyote stop him by barking loud at him just before the shot. I also use a softsided stadium seat covered in burlap with a waist snap for carrying and sides resewn closer to the seat for back support.

You just might have problems killing coyote as you already thinking about shots number 2 thru 20 instead of the first one, 20 round mags just make the rifle heavier.

Yep, first shot kills fill the truck faster.
