I only want to add one thing to this thread. HEAD SHOT ONLY . I live in Michigan too, and I have to hunt under the same piss poor laws, so Ive been there and done that. I personally wont even raise my trigger finger until I have a clean headshot preferably under 40 yards. I have shot for vitals at 50 yards and ended up tracking the injured dog across 3 different farms.

The question isn't whether a 22 Long Rifle can kill a coyote. The question is, can you hit the target?
That is the exact reason that I say Head Shot Only. Shot placement is more important with the less powerfull 22lr because even though a 22lr will penetrate a coyotes rib, the rib is going to cause the bullet to deviate from its original path. So that perfectly placed heart shot isnt always going to make it to the heart.
