Just wondering, has anyone tried Dead coyote on geese? Or any other waterfowl?

Hevi shot #2 has an effective killing range of 100 yds with 122 pellets in an 1.5 oz load with an initial velocity of 1450 ft/s.

Dead coyote has effective killing range of 150 yds with 53 pellets in a 1.5oz load. I don't know why you shoot at a goose that is beyond 50 yards. Not saying it will not work, but I'd rather have the pellets count than a killing range of 150 yards.

Dead coyote is not designed for waterfowl. I have used it on geese though. Its usually my 3rd shot because its to expensive. I shot a cripple at 65+ yards and had 3 pass throughs. One thing that it does that steel shot cannot do is buck the wind. Steel sheds so much energy so fast that on a very windy day you could hitting everywhere except your target. DC is great in limited situations but for the most part is a waste of money.

Do a search in the honey hole and you will get more than you ever wished on the subject. But in my opinion its called Dead Coyote not dead goose for a reason. At 45 yards or less there are alot of options that will be as effective or better.

The only way I could see using it is if I kept 2-3 in my pocket just in case of a cripple getting away or if your in an area with coyotes. Other than that get them in close or else you just educate the birds for the next guy.

Dead Coyote is a flat out skybuster load to the extreme. If you are using it you are either very uninformed or you could care less about hunting geese in an kind of a rational or sporting way. #4 has way more pellets and kills farther than most can even think about shooting accurately.

100 Yards??? That is a stat that I have never seen before. Where did you get your info from? I would like to see it.

I don't know all the laws in the country, but I do know that using dead coyote is illegal in many states for regular duck/goose season. So, check with the CO or rules/regulations to make sure you don't get a ticket! Happy Hunting!

According to my ballistics program it still has a velocity of 575 ft/s at 110 yards. If you don't believe my numbers go to:

http://www.bucksrunsports.com/

Click on the steel shot/hevi shot link, scroll to the bottom of the page and they have a table of velocities.

I don't make up my numbers, but I might "misremember" them from time to time.

Thaner's post was right on, direct and to the point without any fluff.
