Yes it's a great Caliber, excellent choice for Small to Medium game animals.
Good Luck

Default 17 hmr

Foxes yes. Coyotes no. Bullet breaks up on the ribs. Causes a nasty shallow wound. Read a field report when the cartridge was first introduced. .22 caliber centerfire for the coyotes. .22 mag HP's for the fox's medicine.

I've used my hmr for rabbits and whatnot.. and I can see taking a fox out with it but the 17hmr is a bit light for yotes, I think..
