Coyotes In Your Pocket - A Quest To Shotgun Coyotes

Quote:
New country, new set-up and no real clue of what is coming. Six minutes into the stand a coyote blows out of the brush line just feet from my son, Ben, and I. It has our scent now and it's going hard across the small meadow in front of us. Simultaneous shots from my 12 gauge and Ben's .17 send her skidding through the hay stubble before she makes it 30 yards. Did that really just happen? This is a little more up-close and personal than our normal sets. Read More...

    One of the many things I learned hunting with Tim is how valuable a range finder is even with a shotgun. Had I taken time to pre range the set up I would have taken a relatively easy coming in shot-instead I waited and had to take a harder going away shot at the margins of the ammo's range.

    Good point, Carl. I know the exact stand to which you're referring.

    Used 3" lead double B's for years, had kills to 60+ yds... then heard about dead coyote loads, work great but too expensive for this coon, went back to 3" #4 buckshot...load shotgun with BB in tube, #4 as follow up...Most hunting up here in n. wisconsin is woods and swamps, some field shooting, but with people building houses everywhere and in the damndest places, our group is mostly shotgunning coyotes and fox...
