Default Air Gun = Coyote

Hey does anyone know if a 600 fps Air Rifle using pellets kill a coyote? I am currently using a 30# bow and i am trying to get my first coyote in ohio. If anyone could please help me with any information you have please let me know as soon as possiable. I am going out saturday so anyone who can help me before that would be great but if you can't please leave me a message or reply on here anyway! Thanks for everyone's help and good luck to everyone else.

600 fps is only enough to kill a squirrel,if I were you I would use the bow with a very sharp broadhead and get them in close.GOOD LUCK!!

600fps will not do the job...there are others that will do a way better job...PM me and I will send you some links, I have a airgun that will take down a hog.

Or a shotgun even, that wouldbe easererthan a bow. Just a little more forgiving than a bow.

i have a 1000fps pellet gun and sometimes i don't even kill birds right away with one shot so 600 will not do it
