Here's a picture of a coyote that I shot this spring:

That rifle is a Yugoslavian Model 24/47 8mm Mauser.
that small ring mauser is a great reciever to build a custom rifle off of. mauser is still producing weapons but under the mauser name its cannon and military big guns. their hunting rifles are under the name styer.

For coyotes i use my savage 243 and hornady 58 grain V max its just devastating on coyotes and its a good idea to have a shot gun with usally a 12ga with a full choke for the close shots

The rifle in that picture is a large ring.It was made in 1947,and modeled after the German large ring Mauser.

You are definitely NOT going to want to use a .22 for coyotes, fox or wolf. ESPECIALLY WOLF! I consider .22 mag minimum for coyotes and fox, and would only use it out to 100 yards or so. For wolf I would say a minimum of .243, and even then are you sure its even legal to shoot a wolf in your state?

Wolf NO but .22 long rifle is ok for Coyotes & fox Here in NH we have a night season for yotes & you can only use rimfire or shotgun I know a lot of people who use .22's & work fine but our yote's may not get as big as in Wisconsin & you usually don't get long range shots
