I always try to get a head shot. For a few reasons One Im lazy I already walked a few miles to get to were Im hunting and I dont want to track them. Two I usually kill two or some times three from the same stand ( or set up ) so I dont want to be chasing a wounded coyote around. And third it is a quick and painless way to go. ( most the time ). This is just my opion Ive been hunting and trapping coyotes for about 20 years now, but like they say ask 100 hunters the same question get 100 different answers. Hope this help somes and if you need any help just message me and Ill try to steer you in the right direction

I like a head or shoulder shot to limit damage to the hide.

OK first off I've NEVER tracked a coyote from a boiler room shot. Doesn't happen. So the first response of head shooting is just completely wrong. You hit a coyote in the boiler room with a .204, .223, 22-250, 220 swift, .243 and many more the dog goes down instantly.

Secondly head shots blow up. If you want a real mess go ahead and head shoot them.

Third who takes a head shot when you only get about a 4" target? You get about an 8" boiler room target. Have you guys ever seen how small yotes are under that fur? Don't head shoot.

I HAVE hunted coyotes for about 20 years in Eastern Washington and I've never heard of people head shooting them.

The dogs on the Randy anderson vids are boiler room hits. Beware of advise on these site from people who don't know what they are talking about. "Tracking wounded coyotes if you don't head shoot them"???? What a crock. This site amazes me sometimes.

Since moving to S. Idaho I find a lot of shots I have are only head shots in the sage brush. I have also started carrying a shotgun which works the best in this type of country.

Ask 100 hunters the same question get 100 different answers. This is in response to IMINRUT comments. First the advice I gave is what works for me here in Ohio not what I think works some where else. Second I kill coyotes because they are a nuciesnce. Not for the hide. Third apperantly I most be a better shot than you because I head shoot all mine, My statement of tracking is just that Basiclly I dont like tracking them because yes Ive had some bad "boiler room" shots. And finally Ive have been hunting coyotes as long as you. So for you to come out and say I am wrong because I hunt different than you, Which is what you are basiclly saying SO In closing I guess I should watch the same videos you watch so I can tell every body the are wrong.
