I love my savage .223 with accutrigger topped with a leupold scope shooting black hills 55 grainers. Nothing really fancy or expensive except the scope, which was worth every penny, but does the job to as far out as I would ever want to shoot.

Best round for minimizing fur damage is the full metal jacket. You may have to track a few yotes though.

Any AR is better than a bolt action gun. I have been hunting yotes now with my 2 ar's for 2 years and wouldnt trade them for anything else.
Get a liteweight 18" barrel Bushmaster & 3-9x40 Luepold or Bushnell elite.
Fastet follow up shots youll ever see.

What he said:

I have the Savage Predator Hunter in .223, accutrigger, topped with Leupold 4-12X40 VXII, shooting Hornady's 55 gr VX. Nasty and super accurate.

I mainly hunt with a bow is what I should have said there are days I will bust out the .223 or 12 gauge but you think shooting a coyote with a gun is fun wait til you do it with a bow.
