Coyote hunting has been very good, here in central Washington.

Any other "Black Rifle" Yote hunters on the Washington Home board?

I havent been hunting, but a friend is trying to talk me into going coyote hunting and other small varmits. Can you post some info on WA requirements to hunt coyotes and other varmits. Do you eat the meat or do anything with the coyote after you shoot it? Permits required? What area do you guys hunt in?

What is the set up on that rifle? Barrel length? Optics?

Im considering a build similar to yours. Thinking 20inch barrel, 10x optics..... noting set in stone at this time, trying to research it and get input.

Thanks

All you need in WA for coyote is a hunting lic, season is year-round.

Eat the meat???? No way man- on top of the fact they are scavengers, they're a canine. I've had my share of Dog when I was in Korea

I use a 20" HB Bushy, with 3x9-40 glass mounted on top. I shoot handloads, a 68Gr BTHP charged with 24.5Gr Win 748, CCI Sm rifle primers in once fired Winchester cases. They seem to do the job just fine.

You'll need to learn how to "case" skin the carcass, but Pacific Hide and Fur in Spokane used to par per pelt/ varible on condiiton. It's been so long that I can't recall prices.
Another option is that some of the Indian Reservations will allow you to hunt coyote on the Res, and they have a bounty out on them, the Spokane Res. used to have a $5 per tail bounty.

As always, ask for permission, be aware of your backstop (Especially out on in the desert), practice good safety, take along enough gear to survive out in the boonies, and have fun.

Thanks for the info.

Im not looking to eat things I may shoot. Especially not dog. You never know what some people do..... What do you do with the fur? Can you just leave the carcas there?

What can you shoot without a hunting license legally?

What other animals/ varmits do people shoot with their AR's?

Not sure what you mean by "shoot" without a hunting license, you can shoot without one, you can not hunt without one.
That pic was taken about five miles north of Vantage. My rifle is a desert camo A3 mostly Bushmaster build with a 20 in fluted free floated Hbar. 6x24 optic. I honestly don't know much at all about Yote hunting though.

Kind of a tricky question really-
IIRC IF you're in the employment OR have been asked by a farmer or rancher, AND the varmits are in the act of depredation (Destroying crops, screwing with livestock, then you have a legal right to kill the animal. But that's not hunting, persay, that's more along the lines of crop/herd defense/maintainance/corrective action. But it's NOT hunting....

Here's some advice I learned-
Don't be afraid to pull up to a farmer/rancher's house and ask for permission. You might get shut down a few times by folks with a bad taste in their mouth from "city slickers" putting holes in irrigation lines or peppering cattle, but if you're rspectful, use the king's english well, and generally don't give off flake vibes, you'll at least get a lead or two. Ask them if they have any varmit problems-often they do, from prairie dogs/rock chucks to coyotes. Most of the time they can also tell you the best place & times to catch the critters.l

What is everyone using for glass on their varmint rifles?

Trying to figure out something good for an AR...

An ACOG is about twice what I have to spend unfortunatly

Rifle I'm planning out will probably be my last as I gotta get myself all squared away for school...

O.K. well I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this, but the optic on my rifle is a Tasco 6x24 mil-dot, I got tired of spending so much money on gun gadgets and thought I'd give it a try, so far so good.

Any places I should read up on before looking at various models?

I got probably $400 to spend at the most in the near future...

I've done a little yote hunting. I would definetly like to do more. If anyone would like to try night hunting I have two pairs of 3rd gen PVS-7s. If you invite me you will get to use a pair. I also have Thermal vision. I know NV is legal to hunt coyotes with & I pretty sure Thermal is legal too.

I've never hunted before but varmint or coyote shooting/hunting for fun sounds like a good time to me.

I have read good reviews about the Super Sniper brand scopes from SWFA. The 10x 40 is $299.
Anyone here have one or use one? Im looking to buy a scope and this model is on my list of possibilities....

Ditto on Choppers request. I've gone after yotes only once, but I'd love to do it again. If a few wanna GTG, I'd go. Last trip I took a few guns, but ended up using the PSS .308. I know it's overkill for a doggie, but I like it!
