So I'm mowing my yard, riding the lawn tractor, listening to some country music. I look towards the house, about 50-60 feet from me and my lovely bride is standing on the porch taking photos of me with her phone. She's crazy like that... I catch some movement out of the corner of my eye and I think "cool, a grey fox is cruising through". I turn to look and it's a mangey yote, and the sucker is cruising on the retaining wall from my left to my right halfway between me and the porch. Despite the wife taking photos, she doesn't get one of the dog. I jumped off the tractor and hollered at her to get me a gun! She disappeared before I could give her clearer instructions and came back with my Glock 23x. The dog was gone by that point, vanished into the woods eventhough at a slow pace. Never had a yote come that close while there were two of us there, me on the mower, and the wife standing on the porch. This dog passed about 20 feet between us, when there are acres and acres 50 feet behind me. To the point... she's holding the Glock and I'm thinking "what the he'll am I going to do with that?" I can see my turkey gun from the door, though no rounds in the vicinity. I don't know what I expected to see when she came back. My RRA .223? One of a variety of shotguns or Glocks? Perhaps a bolt action anywhere from .17 WMR up to .300WM? Maybe a lever? .22? .30-30? .45-70? It was one of those "fetch me a gun" moments and I mistakenly expected she had the wherewithal to bring me the right tool for the job. It was a little comical. Finally I asked her to get my Henry Golden Boy .22 Mag. Figuring at the range I have in my back yard that it wouldn't be too much gun, but curios now if it's enough to ethically put a mangey (or otherwise) yote out of its misery at ranges inside of 40 yards. It's loaded with 30gr Hornaday V-Max and going to find a home above the back door rather than the cold darkness of my gun safe. TLDR: .22 mag for yote inside of 40 yards ethical?
