Don't Forget Bobcats and Foxes
More often than not, coyotes share their range with other species of predators. A hunter doesn't have to choose between hunting coyotes and going after a smaller predator, however. Bobcats and foxes, both red and gray, also respond readily to a prey-in-distress call. A .223 is an ideal caliber for bobcats and foxes-and coyotes, for that matter. Depending on whether you're hunting for fur, and what your predator quarry is likely to be, you might want to vary your bullet selection.
