A 22 cal. is WAY PLENTY for coyote hunting or defending from a coyote. Never be afraid of one, though. I have said before, there is a greater risk of injury caring a knife or gun around the woods to protect yourself from a coyote than the coyote itself attacking you. But small livestock, pets, and very small children (maybe?) could be a different story. My sister's dog was nearly killed in the middle of the night by a coyote(s). It limped into the house bloody and with a puncture wound on the top of it's head. It made it, but in areas where coyotes are very prevalent I would take extreme caution with fairly small animals, and maybe even small children, if they're walking around the wilderness in the night no_no. Still, unlikely.

There was a story in National Geograghic years ago, late eighties or early nineties, that highlighted the illegal transportation of live coyotes from state to state.  The coyotes were sold  to provide hunting opportunities either in a pen situation or the "wild."   Coyotes may have spread over a larger range more rapidly due to this.  I've never heard anyone say "there aren't enough coyotes around here."   Mburrow, logdog and all...keep up the good shooting! 8)
