 Mighty fine page! The varmits I hunt in Alabama are wild hogs, up close and personal. Shoot many of them in briar thickets in close  corners ...and we catch some with dogs. The wide open spaces that you show in your pics are most unlike south Alabama. I enjoyed the views. Here its
 trees, trees, trees...but beautiful too. Stop by my site sometime for a glipse into life in the Horn Swamp, along the Alabama River. And keep tagging those  varmits...

David Hughes , Web site: Alaskan123 E-mail: Alaskan123@aol.com
   I live in the interior of Alaska and enjoy hunting varmints in the winter here. Mainly wolves and yotes. For most of my winter varmint hunting I use a Salvage BBL 112 single shot in 25-06. I just love that rifle and that cal. I think both are under rated. When the weather warms I switch to my Salvage BBL 110 .300 Win Mag because up here the animals bite back. You never know what  you will call in. I do most of my hunting in winter though and it can be very demanding to remain still when its -40F. I usually wait until heavy snows hit then go to the ridges over looking the pipeline roads and catch the critters using them. They're lazy too and would rather use the roads also. This spring was a very mild one so there was a rabbit pop. explosion and the wolves and yotes pop. has exploded also. Anyone interested in coming to Alaska this winter just let me know, it would be great if someone that really knows how to call could come. Because my lips keep freezing to the call and those electric tapes don't work when it gets really cold, the tape just snaps.

  I'm in the Interior of Alaska near the Yukon Border. Varmint hunting is tough in the  winter due to our cool temperatures in this area. Our varmints include wolf, lynx, fox. etc plus both
 grizzly and black bears in the spring and fall.During our spring and fall hunting because of the bears  requires two weapons in the field. A light caliber pistol and my trusty 30-06.

I am a Member of The Varmint Hunters Association  and Life member of the NRA. My web page, is like a short course in calling coyotes here in California, but the techniques should work most anywhere they are found. I also have a web pages on Reloading and Hunting Stories. I like to hunt, fish, play on the computer, and operate ham radio. I go deer hunting, coyote calling and trout fishing every chance I get and have gone to 3 of the last 4 Squirrel Wars up near Alturas CA. Great shooting there and it helps the farmers who are desperate for controlling the tremendous squirrel population. Also, since I started calling for coyotes near Antioch, CA on two large ranches, not a single cow or calf has been lost to depredation. I use a 17 Ackley Hornet, 17 Mach IV, and 223 Rem 700 PSS for squirrels and a 243 Win Sako Forester with "fitted neck" Shilen barrel for coyote and deer.  Good Hunting from Varmint Al

Dick Hatfield, E-mail: tyrr@hotcoco.infi.net
I am retired and do a little ground squirrel hunting and coyote calling with my friend Al Harrel. I'm using a 17 Mach IV for most of the squirrel hunting. It is a Bullberry barrel on a Thompson Contender Carbine. That is good to about 150-200 yards. For longer range I use a Ruger 1 in the 223 caliber. Al is good at coyote calling and I have backed him up to catch the ones that sneak around behind. I use my deer rifle which is a Remington 7 in a 7-08.                        Dick Hatfield

I would like to extend an invitation to varmit hunters in southern CA to join me, or vice versa. Would like some help in night hunting.

I primarily hunt prairie dogs and gophers in a 120-mile radius from my home, mostly on public land. I generally use a Ruger Number 1 single shot, heavy sporter weight, cal. .22-250; however, sometimes I use a McMillan custom bolt action single shot benchrest gun, also cal. .22-250. For a change, I'll shoot the little Winchester Mod. 43 bolt gun, chambered in .218 Bee. For the really long shots, I occasionally shoot a .300 Weatherby with a 130 grain bullet.

 Really tickled to find your site. I appreciate your efforts. Keep up the good work. I've been varmint hunting since I was nine, about 54 years
 now. I make my living building superbly accurate rifles, and never get tired of making guns, or shooting them. As a boy, I hunted crows and groundhogs in  Kentucky. As a young man, it was picket pins and Belding ground squirrels and jackrabbits in California. Now it's crows and bobcats and armadillos in  Florida. It never gets old. Thanks again, Terry

  Hi there, I am from Winthrop, Minnesota and I am an avid varmint hunter. I always go to the Rosebud in South Dakota to turn a few of those pesky prarie pups inside out. I love to stop as many hearts in a  day as i can while out there. My weapons of choice for all of my varmint hunting are my tremendousley  accurate, Rem .222, my dads custom .17 (which to those doubters of this terrific little round, about the wind  drift, let me assure you i am yet to really notice it!) The .17 really will rip prarie dogs to hell as well as any  220 swift or 22-250 ever has. Also I love shooting the 22-250 that sends my favorite ballistic tip lead  sandwich right where I put it. I am also an avid fox hunter here around home. and there are plenty to go around,  I love calling and the spot and stalk technique. Well, good hnting to ya all! Remember to "Paint the town red"  next time you are there, thats what its all about!

  Just visiting, I'm new to varmint hunting. We don't have any prairie dogs or chucks here.
 I'll have to settle for crows and yotes. I'm about to go nuts wishing that I could go on a prairie dog  hunt this year. Currently my .22-250 is being tuned and pampered by a local gunsmith. Maybe later  this year I'll be able to get more involved. Thanks for the effort that all Varmint Hunters give. This is  the only way we'll be able to maintain any of the shooting sports. I'm a member of the NRA and  VHA.

 varmint hunting, my first year was un eventfull (really didn't know what I was doing). Met a guy who has lived here a long time and enjoys the sport. We  have really built a strong friendship on our hunting trips, so far I've downed many coyotes, and two bobcats. My present varmint weapon is a custom  AR-15 w/ a 26" 1x9 twist fluted hvybbl, freefloat handguard, flattop upper reciever, w/ 3.5x10x50 optic. load of choice is a handloaded 60 gr Hornady  V-Max w/ 27gr. Hogden BLC-2. This combo works rather well. smallest gruop is .786" @100yds. Would really like to share tips, stories, and hunts/if your  ever in southern N.M.

I have been hunting fox in the Livingston county area for the last ten years, and have done quite well on the reds. This year I purchased a
 Ruger #1v in .223 for my daylight outings, what a great gun! My choice for night time hunting is my trusty (cheap) Marlin .22 mag., for $130 you cannot find a  better shooting gun (I can actually say I have never missed a fox with this gun, long or short range). Both of these guns are topped with Leopuold 3-9 vari-x  scopes, which seem to be perfect for both day and night. One problem I have had is getting gray fox in. I have been strictly searching for them for the last two  years, and have only found red's. Everyone I know says the gray's are more aggressive towards calls, but I've yet to see one. If anyone in the area would like to  help me out, or just want to swap stories/secrets, drop me an e-mail and I will get right back to you.

  I am interested in long range shooting, I shoot at woodchucks and Crows. I use a .223  rem with a Choate Stock and Weaver T- 16. For longer ranges I use a Ruger Mark ll in the 243 with  a BSA scope. I have access to about 2000 acres on fields in which I have permission to hunt. The  tough part is finding fields with spots that you can shoot and over 350 yards. I have only a few spots  for 450 + yard shots. Would be interested in hunting with any one who likes to shoot. My son who is  my shooting partner now leaves for the Marines in August. Would also like to find another member  of Varmint Hunters Ass. who would like to make it into the 500 yard club.

 I have recently started getting back into coyote calling by taking my 12 year old son out and showing him the art. I shoot a .222  Remington 788 topped with a Weaver Challenger 3 x 9 scope. Calling is one of the most exciting and challenging forms of hunting. It also gets  you easy access to private property that is otherwise closed to hunting. And more times than not, they will open their land to you for other  types of hunting when they see you're a professional and respect their property rights.

There's nothing like a good cold, snowy,calm morning laying in the fresh snow in full white camo watching it begin getting light in the east. You adjust your bipod to line up with two  coyotes coming up the large draw looking for the source of your rabbit call.... You guessed it. I Iove coyote hunting! I mainly use a Rem. 700 BDL 22-250 with a stainless Shilen select barrel topped with a Leupold 4.5x 14 50mm. That scope really gathers light on those moon lit nights. (In ND we can hunt fox and coyote all night after Dec. 1st without the aid of artificial light). I use my 25-06 on real windy days or long shots. I also really get into prairie dog hunting, but I could go on and on....

I recently wrote a hunt article, that was published in the last issue of ONE GOOD SHOT, on my hog hunt, in Georgia earlier this year.

Stewart tape player. During the day I use either a 16-gauge Browning 5-shot (my Sweet Sixteen) or a 30-30 Winchester 94 with 55-grain
Remington Accelerator shells. The 30-30's a lot of lead for a coyote, but it's all I have for now, and that's why I use the Accelerators. At night I use the Sweet Sixteen.

   I am a disabled Oklahoma varmint hunter. I am 22 years and love to shoot varmints! Varmint hunters rock! About six years ago I
had a motorcycle wreck that broke my neck and left me paralyzed from the mid chest down. I have always loved guns and shooting and when I had my wreck I thought my shooting days were over, but a friend helped me design a rifle rest to mount to my motorized wheelchair, and after that it was varmints beware! We drive five hours to western Oklahoma to shoot prairie dogs and walk out in our back yard to call crow, bobcat, and coyote. Varmint hunting is the greatest sport on earth! The weapons I use to hunt varmints with are Savage 112FVSS .22-250 with a Simmons AETEC 6.5-20x44 scope. This gun shot amazingly right out of the box! Has anyone else experienced this with this gun, if so email me. My other varmint rifle is a Remington 700BDL 6mm, it will reach out there and touch something! I have a Nikon 6-20x44 o it. This gun needed some stock work to become more accurate. I am thinking of cutting the barrel off and making a 6mm Ackley improved with an H-S Precision stock. Any opinions are welcome. My last varmint rifle is a Mini-14 .223. I am going to have the heavy barrel conversion done on this gun as well as a changeable barrel system in
.17 and .223. I am currently searching for a Remington or savage bolt action .223 for my next varmint rifle. So if anyone has one please let me know.

I'm a charter member of the VHA and enjoy sharing the outdoors with my sons and matching wits with Wile E. Coyote. Check out Varmint Hunter Magazine January 1998 Page 224 for an article that I sent in about a trip with with my sons. Let me know if you like it. I'm recently retired from a 20 year law enforcement career and have plenty of time to spend calling coyotes. We also enjoy doing the Prairie Dog thing in Western OK. I'm doing some experimenting with a Benelli M1 Super 90 with a Mechanical  accuracy(Oklahoma City) ported choke tube. It groups well, but I hit a coyote twice at 30 yards and it ran off into the cedars. Maybe a  switch to #4 buckshot from copper-plated BB's will solve that problem? Anybody have any ideas?

It is safer and more fun to hunt with others, especially if they know what they are doing.

I just started varmint hunting not too long ago, sure I've done my share of critter shooting , but not with an actual "varmint rifle"  My toy is a Savage 112FV .22-250 with a Tasco TR 4x16 scope. Its not the most expensive set up there is but I like it just the same. The  only problem is that I dont know of too many good places to shoot other than going clear to Bend OR ... so if any of you know a good place  to shoot varmints that are closer than a 5hr drive away, let know...or any other helpful advise that may help !

 Since the state of Oregon offers some awesome opportunities for critters of all sizes to be taken, I trap, hunt, and fish anytime I can,  for anything in season (legally of course). My preference is yotes, cats, and crows w/.22, .223, and 12 guage for tools of trade. Coons are ok but  real greasy. I skin everything and eat crow and beaver (from trapline et al). Always lookin for a partner to go with and don't usually matter how far.  Member of VHA, NRA, and Lifemember of NAHC, and employed by the USCG of USA and ABC of DEFG to HIJK in LMNOP.

estimation by the parks and wildlife)grackles and every summer i would rack up the count,under my belt at least 20 squirels and 3 coons.We have just recently moved from where we used to live and everytime we go back we end up spending one day at a grain field popping grackles at water holes and on top of grain stocks. And here where we moved there is no place to hunt the people are so Conservative in nature. Me and my father do this as a relaxing hobby we have recently started long range varminting. There is nothing like finding a water hole with 15 or so coons in it and blasting a way.If you know anyone that varmints in texas i would appreciate the info thanks.

  I am an avid varmint hunter doing most of my hunting in central and north central Texas.
 I will become more involved in prairie dogs this upcoming year. Favorite rifle is a 22.250. Took
 bobcat, coon, squirrel, cotton-tail, jack rabbit, crow, skunk, rattlesnake and ring-tail this past year  ('97/'98). Looking forward to becoming a new VHA member.

I hunt quite a bit around Rocksprings, TX and here around San Angelo.  We shoot lots of fox and coons, and we're always hunting the elusive bobcat.  Lots of good coyote shooting around Snyder, would love to find some more places to do that.  Shoot .220 Swift Sendero and a Single Shot 10 gauge for the close range calls.  There's nothing funner that calling one in tight.  Anyone interested in trading out spots drop me a line.  Thanks.

 I am a avid varmint hunter who enjoys calling coyotes, fox, bobcat, coons, and crows anywhere I can gain access.  I use a 22-250 and have good success with it.  I'm looking for varmint hunters who need a partner since I have a hard time getting people to go.  It is much more enjoyable hunting as a team, especially at night, legal of course.

I love to hunt groundhogs but in the winter, when the groundhogs are hibernating, I hunt predators in Virginia. I've had good luck in calling foxes in but never tried to call very long.

I am new to the varmit hunting deal. I have killed a lot of squirels with my pellet gun in the past, but have never been serious about the sport. I have heard about coyote hunting and it really sounds like fun, i know you can't do it with the ole .177 pellet, so i am thinking of getting a .223, sounds like an ok gun for the job. There are a couple of people that want to go find some coyotes with me, but i am not experienced yet so I think it would be a good idea to get some veteran help. If you know of anyone that will either give me some pointers, or let me use their land, I would like to hear about them. I am 17 now.

  I have been out to hunt coyotes five times in the last five years and have taken three coyotes. I have a 220 swift single shot rifle with a  6.5 x 20 Leupold vari-Xlll scope. It has an Apex gain twist barrel which I broke in by shooting one hundred times, using a recommended shoot and  clean procedure. Then I removed the barrel and had it gas nitrided. My best group to date is a half inch four shot goup at 100 yards. A Pacific  Research stock holds the Mark X action and barrel. I do all my hunting in eastern Washington, around Naches (near my dads house in the Nile  area)and Moses Lake. I would really like to find a way to contact farmers that would invite someone to hunt coyotes and or cougar on their land. I  am also interested in hunting the north central and north eastern portions of the state as well.

Martin shoots a Marlin 22 Magnum; I just got a Tikka (Sako) in  22-250, what a beauty, shoots straight as you please. We've found a couple of spots, mostly around  Ephrata, but could sure use any advice any fellow varminters can give us about where are good sites  and how best to obtain permission to hunt. And any stories would be welcome too!

I have been hunting coyotes, rockchucks, and rabbits in eastern Wasington for the last 11 years.  For yote's and chucks, my weapon of choice is the 22-220 or .223 if its thick cover.  One critter that has neglected to show its self in 11 years of calling, is the bobcat.  I would love to bag one of these spotted kitties but I must be calling the wrong areas.  Any advise would be greatly appreciated.  For coyotes I mostly hunt near Davenport (calling) and also I think its a blast to use the spot and sneak technique in the rolling hills of the Palouse. Feel free to drop me an email for any advise, or maybe if you have a tip to bag one of those sly felines.  Keep the coyotes rollin', chucks a poppin', and rabbits squealin'

I've recently moved to Calgary, Alberta, and would sure appreciate meeting a fellow varmint hunter. I probably shoot more foxes, coyotes and crows than anything else (excluding gophers). However, I hunt every kind of varmint that I can. Often I'll take a .22 lr, a centerfire, and a shotgun so that I can take advantage of any opportunities that come up. I've been a member of the The Varmint Hunters Associationfor a few years, and have been to all three Jamborees.

I live about 19 miles east of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Winnipeg is the Provinces biggest city (about 600,000 people) and is located 1.5 hours north of Grand Forks, North Dakota (about 2.25 hours north of Fargo, ND). I am a member of the Varmint Hunters Association and hunt all varmints with various rifles and shotguns in my battery.

My favorite pastime is shooting chucks and other predators with either a .22-250 (100- 300 yards), 6mm.-284 (300-600 yards) or a .338-416 Rigby Improved (600-1000 yards). My longest kill so far was a 20 pound raccoon at 875 yards. I have access to a 1000 yard range close to the U.S. border. Equipment wise, I use a military YAG laser rangefinder to determine distances as well as using a palm-top computer in order to dial-in the correct elevation setting on my scope for targets further than around 400 yards. Would like to meet or talk with other like-minded shooters; especially those who want to shoot in Quebec and perhaps brush up on their high school French.

    Two English varmint shooters request contact with like minded shooters from the USA.  We are interested in coming across to the US to shoot prarie dogs or the like.  We can organise fox/rabbit varmit shooting in the UK.

some night ago i'm surfed on and I find your nice web site. I have a question for you. I'm an Italian Hunter of crow, fox and wild bore. I hunt wild bore by My Valmet M76 308W and crows and fox by my Ruger Km 77 mark II VT in 22-250. My best load for this rifle is: Case Norma, Primer CCI BR , Powder Vithavuory N140 36,5 gr., Sierra 55 gr.HPBT. i  cronograph it at 1150 m/s and five shot in 1,5 cm @ 200 meters. You have the same rifle , what is your best load ? WW 760 is a good powder for 22-250?  I send you a photo of my best wild bore of last year (110 KG).
Thank you for your answer and greetings from Florence Italy.

  Interesting Website, In NZ I shoot rabbits, hares, ferrits, possoms, goats and other introduced vermin. My firearms of choice are a savage .22/20G combination and a Ruger 10/22. (sometimes I use a parker hale silencer with the 10/22, silencers are legal in NZ however Pistols or any thing shorter  than 765mm are not. (you win some you lose some Eh?)

 Originally from Montana, but have lived here for 33yrs. I shoot both a 22/250 and a .220 Swift. Hunt mainly rabbits and hares [jacks] but will also
 pick on crows and magpies if there's nothing else around. I'd love to hear from anybody who shares the love of varminting and .220 Swifts.

I do a range of hunting here in NZ. Most hunting can be done all year round. The forest here is Sub-tropical rain forest, and is run by the govt for recreational purposes. Most farmers once you get to know them are happy to let us hunt on their property, some of the best places we have, were found by accident, being in the wrong place at the right time. Being a city guy, I like to get out at least once a month.
    Possums, Rabbits, Hares, Wallabies, Goats, Up close and personal with my Lever action, with cast 44/40 bullets, or a silenced .22 if around houses.  Deer at least 5 species inc hybrids and Pigs all year round but great hunting in the Roar (April), 308 W. Game Birds, 6 week season.
    Went hunting at a friends farm last Saturday morning shot 2 goats, Angora hybrids. Saw at a distance a red deer, but couldn't find him when we got closer. After dinner went spotlighting possums. Shot about 30-40 of the pests. Was back at home, at 1am the next morning. Not a bad day in all.
    I'm a keen reloader, and member of several hunting clubs. Always interested in hearing from hunters in NZ, especially ones just starting out who would like to tag along as part of the team.
