Re: Good Caliber for Trapping Fox and Coyote
Standard .22 LR is fine for coyotes for dispatch. If worried about the skull, double lung them, be sure they are dead before taking from trap. Look for dilated pupils ( really big black), and touch the eyelids. If there is eyelid movement it's still alive.
Obviously ok for fox too. Def for coon to have a gun. Easy to carry is a revolver. Get a decent holster. If you don't have an LTCF, you need a sportsman permit IIRC.
