   Brother in law in IA wants a coyote gun and told me he really likes the Tika T3.  He's eye-balling the .243, because he also might go out of state for deer.  I discussed the merits of the 250 vs. .223, but talked him out of a .270 just for coyotes.  He might go with the .243. 

 

    I am not familiar with Tika/Sako's.  Does anyone have experience with Tika's...thumbs up or thumbs down?

I hear nothing but good about Tikka.  No personal experience as I like make the low cost guns shoot well and spend my excess on reloading and optics.

I have a Tikka 243 and love it. It's one of the better shooting rifles that I own. It's accurate. I would recommend it.

One day, when you retire and look back over your life, you're not going to say "I should have worked more and hunted and fished less". So, get out there and enjoy the outdoors!

Yep, own Beretta shotguns and have wanted a Tikka for a while now. Great investment, them Italians now how to make the best shotguns and the rifles are up there too.

I got my old man a T3 in .270 for Father's Day and he has been really pleased with it. One of my good friends got a T3 in .204 and never leaves home without it.

Nice!

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

                                                       

                                                         

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

 

If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there

Will be headed out this week to see my brother-in-law. Told him to talk to me before he has plans of becoming a professional wolfer. I told him shooting coyotes is easy, getting the shot is challenging. He told me "paper" before "pelt". I'm sure we'll be headed to the range. Thanks for the feedback. I always know where I can get good advice.
