Here is my two favorite coyote shotgun loads.3" -12 gauge 1 5/8 oz-Nickel "F"LEAD Fiocchi 3" hull-616 primer -Multi metal 3" hull -clear over shot hull ,and roll crimp 38 gr blue dot3" 1/2"- 12 gauge-2 oz-Lead-#4 Buck Fiocchi 3 1/2" hull 617 primer-Multi metal 3 1/2 Wad-clear over shot card, and Roll crimp 39 gr steel
Either load seams to blow the dog off there feet at 60 yards +.
The last best place.

they take the fun out of coyote hunting here in pennsylvania.we cant use anything bigger than #4 lead and #2 no tox.no semi auto rifles,im surprised we dont have to wear orange.but hunting them at night with shotguns is my absolute favorite.the way a wounded rabbit call cuts through the night air is almost magical.we always hunt 3am to dawn.being able to use bigger shot size really wouldnt help us though.in all my years ive never had a "hang up".they know where the call is coming from and run into 20 or less yards.
it didnt smell like that when i ate it
