Is a 30.06 good for deer and coyotes?
No. Bullets will just bounce off. Need at least a .375 H&H. Just killing. The caliber that won WWII will kill any deer or coyote you’d care to kill.
I prefer a .243 for both, less recoil, but i like my 06 too. People like smaller calibers for yotes to save the fur and follow up shots are easier due to less recoil, but you can certainly kill coyotes with them.
IMHO you can hunt anything in North American with it.
That will work great,pour it on them
Thanks guys, I’m getting back into hunting. I’ve been out of it for 10 years. I moved from Tennessee to Kentucky. The coyotes are thick where I live.
Hunt with a 7400 30.06 my self.
Thats a great round and you can load it up with bullets from 110grains for varmints all the way up to 240 grains for things that bite back. All depends on how much recoil you want to handle. In Kentucky, 150 grain bullets are all you ever need for deer and smaller.
It will kill.
My dad doesn’t use one (he has) but always said it’s the best all around caliber out there. Person on here advertised a Savage pretty reasonable a few years back and I jumped on it. Haven’t used it but at least have a 3006 in my arsenal now.
Best thing you can do for your land and other animals. Eradicate a few.
30-06 and 30-30 have killed more animals then any other rifles. The .30 cal bullet is perfect
