Coyotes use both their nose and eyes to hunt. The cottontail is the coyote’s main meal and they eat more fruit than other canines. You can use either a .222 center fire or a .22 bolt action varmint gun for these animals.
The canine is so sharp eyed he can spot the slightest movement from a great distance and will change direction at the slightest hint of change in his territory. Also they are vocal, often responding to a family member.
