yotes at close to moderate range.
I handload my own shotgun shells. 1.5 oz lead BB (75 pellets) has proven lethal on 4 coyotes thus far, from 10 to about 40 yards. 4 shots, 4 dead coyotes. My handloads are considerably less expensive than HeviShot. Last week I killed a 30# female with the load.
In OK, game laws prohibit the use of any shot larger than BB for all hunting (except waterfowl). Buckshot is illegal. However, quoting one one game officer, "We don't care if you use a bazooka [on coyotes]". Possibly bobcat hunting rules may be more strictly enforced.
